30-Day Book Challenge Day 1: Best book you’ve read last year
Boy, I really tried to limit this to a book or two, but I just can’t left out the others! 2013 is such an amazing #reading year because of these awesome books!
- Walong Diwata ng Pagkahulog by Edgar Calabia Samar (@ecsamar)
This book is both difficult and beautiful. I simply loved the prose of the novel no matter how dizzying it is! The unconventional, nonlinear story plot also added an amazing touch in the story. I fell in love with the fantastic characters (humans or not) too.
- Life of Pi by Yann Martel
This book started by claiming that reading this will make you believe in God. Although I don’t think it really came to that, the novel was still exquisite. I felt that I was immersed in the story and Pi’s whole ordeal as I was reading it. The plot twist also made a great impact on me, and I kept on thinking of it even weeks after I’ve finished the book.
- The Fault in Our Stars by JohnGreen (@johngreenwritesbooks)
Who wouldn’t love this John Green’s best-selling novel? I fell in love with Hazel and Gus’s story: slowly, then all at once. Finished the book within a day and I just had to reread it immediately after because it was so excellent. And yup, cried buckets of tears because of it. Damn cancer.
- It’s A Mens World by Bebang Siy
No it’s not a typo. It’s really a world of “mens”. A collection of essays, this book tackles the life of Miss Bebang as she grows up with her family, her struggles and challenges told in a humorous way. I could really relate with this book as I was reading this. I even made my sister and niece read it! I highly recommend this to everyone.
The Pinoy books were actually signed copies. I rated all of them with 5 stars. Go read them now, if you still haven’t. You won’t regret it!
