1/4 of my 2013 books. (others are from 2012)
As what I’ve said in my previous post, the instant vacation due to the typhoon made me catch up with my 2013’s reading challenge. I’m targeting 35 books this year and I already read 22! Sad ‘coz I sort of have to settle with ebooks because of myself being a peasant. But since the suspension of classes started, I was able to finish 1 book per day and boy was it awesome!
Here’s what I have read during my instant vacay:
- Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler - ★★★☆☆
- Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell - ★★★★
- Attachments by Rainbow Rowell - ★★★★☆
- The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer Smith - ★★★★☆
- Dreamland by Sarah Dessen - ★★★☆☆
- The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman - ★★★★☆
- Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson - ★★★★☆
All books are fascinating especially Eleanor and Park. Ahh, young love it is. It sort of reminds me of my past relationship. Attachments is good to but it was less awesome than E and P. You can also notice how the author love open-ended stories. It always leave me hanging! In Why We Broke Up, it’s kinda disappointing. The illustrations are what made the book interesting but the story’s so-so. Smith’s will made you want to travel and hope that you’ll meet your one true love when doing so. I gave Dreamland 3 out of 5 stars because I got bored with the story. It is my first time to read Neil Gaiman’s and boy I need more of him in my life! I admire the flow of the story that at first it creeps me up. Heh! But I love how it has a deep meaning! And lastly, Patterson’s Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas. All hail James! I fell in love.
And now I’m currently reading: This is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz. (Since this post is on queue, I probably finished this book by now and is up on another read. *wink*)
Ahh! How nice it is to escape and be in the world of fiction. It makes me fall in love with words more and more and more and more.
Edit: Finished reading Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk (right after This is How You Lose Her) and he now have my heart. ♥
Do you have a constant chocolate craving but you need to tolerate too much sweetness in your system? Then this delicacy is right for you!
Peanut Kisses is a Boholano delicacy. I got a hold of it when my mom went to Bohol last year and tasted its awesomeness again when my auntie went there last week. The first time I tasted it, I fell in love. I love it because it isn’t too sweet and the taste is reminiscent of peanut butter.
This food is totally delicious and I think I can finish 5 wrapper/box in one sitting. I swear, I need to be around this stuff more often!

Went to SM Fairview today to see The Hunger Games with Carlo. Gahd, I tell you it was really good! I love the casting! Though, there’s some part that’s not in the book and parts of the book that isn’t followed (Like in the giving of mockinjay pin & how Peeta didn’t lose his leg), it turned out awesome! I appreciate the fact that the whole team tried their very best to adapt everything that’s in the book.
I love how Caesar Flickerman has been introduced and the clips in the backdrop. I love how Effie Trinket is really being herself (Elizabeth Banks really nailed it!), I love how the gamemakers are all dressed up as if everyday is a fashion show and they’re always walking in the catwalk, I love the very high-tech control room in the arena, I love how Haymitch’s giving advice but not in the mentor-ish way, I love Peeta’s jawline and how I can’t focus at it because I was busy focusing on his eyes. I love Peeta’s superb camouflage. I love Katniss’ gown and everything about her! I love everything!
I like the approach in the movie. How they showed the ruling and crazy world of the Capitol instead of just Katniss’ thoughts.
Funny thing is when Gale’s face is being viewed while Katniss kissed Peeta.
The Hunger Games is everything I imagined it to be when I was reading the book. Gosh, I love the cinematography. I’m truly satisfied.
Can’t wait for Catching Fire!
