So as you may have read from the title, I’ve gone back to reading books, mostly fictional books, since it was with this genre I grew up with. But why now? Well, I say to you, why not now? It’s definitely better than ‘never’, right?
For the past few days, I’ve been going in and out of bookstores, looking for books that might interest me. I’ve also been recalling titles of books that I heard from the past (my past, not my past life). And here’s the list that I came up with. Along with some additions from friends :D
Got any suggestions?
The happiness project, Gretchen Rubin
One hundred years of solitude, Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Haruki Murakami – all his books I guess :P I’ve been researching as to which of his novels is the best one, apparently no one has one similar answer, which is good! That would mean that Murakami-san isn’t getting dull any time soon.
Inherent vice, Thomas Pynchon
Haroun and the sea of stories, Salman Rushdie
I am number four, Pittacus Lore
Blindness, Jose Saramago
Kite runner, Khaled Hosseini
Water for elephants, Sara Gruen
Wicked, Gregory Maguire and the other books in the series
lastly Out of Oz
Noli me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, Penguin Classic. I’ve read many versions of these two great novels, mainly because these were required to read throughout your stay in high-school. But ever since I heard that our national hero’s two best novels had been bought by Penguin Classics, I had to read it.
These next books were suggested by my friends and an acquaintance. Though I doubt one of them because she buys books based on the cover art hahaha!
Hoot, Carl Hiaasen
Kira-Kira, Cynthia Kadohata
Boys who like boys by Vicente Groyon (could not find in the internet)
A doll’s house – Henrik Ibsen
Game of thrones, George R.R. Martin. Thea, a strange friend of mine that I hold dearly, suggested I read this book. I said “Are you insane?! Have you seen how thick it is?” the she goes “Yeah, I have it”. But she hasn’t read it yet hahaha!
Magnificence and other stories, Estrella Alfon (no link)
The virgin, Kerima Polotan (no picture and link)
Survivor, Chuck Palahniuk
