I have been really consistently inconsistent in updating this side of my blog. Even though I tried so hard to rationalize and reason out why I’ve been MIA here in my Book of the Month feature, no reason will ever suffice; because the real reason is I am too lazy to think, review and write about this particular topic.
Also, it is hard to choose a book which really gets my emotions. I’ve been reading fairly average lately and it seems no book has really captured my heart that much. Actually, I am really missing reading something dark or deep or something mind-boggling enough. The last time I can remember was last December, I’ve read The Sun is Also a Star in one day. However, the books I’ve been reading now-a-days are just too familiar or what I call my cup of tea: funny Mythology, Christian Non-fiction, an overrated YA novel, Classics from Lewis & Steinback and a Christian book adaptation. All those are in my comfort zone.
I am just looking for something that will resonate my deepest emotions, that can give me a heartbreak (without the actual heartbreak), or something that will challenge my preconceived notion about life.
So, instead of telling you about my favorite book for the 1st quarter of the year, I’ll be giving you some quotable quotes from the books I’ve read:
Skulduggery Pleasant: The Faceless Ones by Derek Landy
Regret No More: Letting Go of Yesterday’s Sorrows by Nelson Dy
Found: Letters on Love, Life and God by Isa Garcia
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Of Mice & Men by John Steinback
The Son of Sobek by Rick Riordan
War Room: Payer is a Powerful Weapon by Chris Fabry
Who Would Have Thought by Acel Van-Ommen
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
Magnus Chase: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
So, I think that’s it. Hopefully, this suffice my MIA for months.
