2013: A Year in Reading

2013---A-Year-In-Reading

This is probably my last post for this year (unless the blogging gods send their blessings) and my 80th overall. A nice round number would be a nice way to end this year in blogging (although a nice round number + 1 would be arguably better). Anyway, 2013 is almost at an end and sometimes … Continue reading

Essential Reading: December 2013

Essential-Reading

Hello! December, the end of the year, is finally here and that means that I am in the last month of my reading for the year 2013. It has been a wonderful year of reading but that should be for a different post so, for now, let me recap the books I’ve read for November … Continue reading

Hooliganism: 2013’s Best Reads So Far

Hooliganism

I have been going into a blogging rut lately because of various disturbances in my life (rewatching sitcoms, for example) that I felt that I should at least post a short feature to hopefully restart my article production especially reviews and whatnot. Yes, baby steps first. Anyway, I just remembered that we are already halfway … Continue reading

Essential Reading: May 2013

Essential-Reading

May is here and, okay, I know I haven’t been active in blogging lately but I wouldn’t miss this monthly feature for the world so I will set aside a few minutes of my time to present my reading list for the month of May. But before we proceed, let us not forget the rundown … Continue reading

Essential Reading: April 2013

Essential-Reading

March was an awesome reading month for me. Mostly because I was itching to try Russian authors for quite some time now and also because all of the books that I finished on March were rated with 4 stars or above. Here are the books that I read (or finished reading) last month: Labyrinths by Jorge … Continue reading

BOOKLOVE: February 2013

January has come and go. With that, I  present to you my book acquisitions for the month of January: Sixty Stories by Donald Barthelme (Tent Bookstore, UP Diliman) – After Rhena got me Forty Stories, which is also by Donald Barthelme, I went back to the Tent Bookstore three days after I received the gift. To my surprise, Sixty … Continue reading

Essential Reading: February 2013

Essential-Reading

This month’s theme, which is books about love, may be very predictable (owing to the fact that it’s Valentine’s month) but I still wanted to do it. Love is a universal subject and it is something that I like reading about (to be fair, I like reading about anything as long as it is well-written). … Continue reading

Best Reads of 2012

BestReads2012

2012 was really an awesome reading year for me. I have managed to finish 61 books (including graphic novels) which means I exceeded the number of books required for my Goodreads’ 2012 Reading Challenge. All in all, it was a very great reading year. But, of course, some books are better than others and this … Continue reading

Book Lust: Christmas Edition

BookLove

Christmas is just around the corner and, before I begin, I want to wish all of my readers a Merry Christmas. We just held our book club’s Christmas Party last Saturday and I was so happy to receive gifts in the form of books this year. This is actually the first time in my life … Continue reading

Essential Reading: October

Essential-Reading

For this month of October, my beloved book club will take on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and I instantly thought that this would be the perfect moment to read works created by female authors. I do not know why but my list of read books is lacking in works created by women. I do not want … Continue reading
