With a bit of prodding from Chris I thought I’d take up her advise and give a short round up of all the 7 books I’ve actually read so far. And since I haven’t been able to write so much about the books I’ve read, I’ll just share one or two thoughts on each.
- 1. Beastly by Alex Flinn
- I am a sucker for retellings of classic fairy tales, and this one didn’t disappoint. It’s not groundbreaking, but it still kept me entertained. [rating=4]
- 2. Kikomachine Komix Blg. 6: Venn Man at iba pang Kalupitan ng Kapalaran! by Manix Abrera
- It’s still funny, but not as good as his earlier volumes. [rating=3]
- 3. Zombicorns by John Green
- More of a novella than an actual novel, this still hits a chord in me and made me think. [rating=4]
- 4. Avalon High by Meg Cabot
- Arthurian myth, swords and (quasi-) sorcery? I am in. I wasn’t actually expecting too much from this, but it surprised me that I loved every turn of the page. [rating=4]
- 5. A New World by Patrick Ness
- My introduction to the Chaos Walking trilogy, and I am looking forward to the experience when I get around to it. [rating=4]
- 6. Naked Heat and 7. Heat Wave by Richard Castle
- The “this is is not fake” schtick is awesome, and I am loving it, alongside the actual TV series. Pulpy fiction at one of its finest.
Naked Heat: [rating=4]
Heat Wave: [rating=3]
Now, to actually get more reading done.
Late comment is late!
Is this Manix volume the red one?
I’ve been meaning to read Beastly (along with other Alex Finn books) but I’ve been putting it off. Boo to me. Maybe our next theme should be fairy-tale retellings haha.
Do you need the rest of the Patrick Ness books? I can lend them to you when I visit in September (over coffee/milk tea at Maginhawa haha).
And yay for Richard Castle. I miss them. 🙁
Late reply is late!
re: Manix volume– yes, the red one.
re: Patrick Ness books– that would’ve been awesome! Though this reply is completely late XD
re: Richard Castle– now they’re back!
