Saturday, January 31, 2015

This is basically a list about every books I read in this month

It seems like yesterday when new year start, and now its already the end of January!

I know that its really a little, but at least I still could read. So here's the list :

Top Ten Books I'd Love to Read With My Book Club (3)

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature that hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week topic is books that you would love to read with your book club. Sadly, I didn't join any book club since its really rare here, but I'd love to read these books if I had any!

1. The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
    I would really like to discuss this book with another bookworm! Especially about one of my        favorite characters, the sweet-and-cocky Will Herondale *wink*

2. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
    I haven't read this book yet, but several people say that this book is fantastic. I couldn't wait till the release date.

3, Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
    Who doesn't want to discuss Percy's sassy?

4. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
    I'm not exactly a fan of mystery contemporary since sometimes its confusing, but this book seems interesting. If I read it with another people, perhaps it would be less confusing.

5. Even In Paradise by Chelsey Philpot
    I'm currently reading this book right now, and so far its good. Hope it didn't disappoint me!

6. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
    I've seen this book a couple of times but really never noticed it until my friend said that this book is good, and from the summary it seems so.

7. Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang
    I've seen many good reviews about this book, and someone told me that the author had just graduated from high school (which means she's just 2 years older than me)!

8. Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes
    Another mystery contemporary, though its different from Thirteen Reasons Why. The summary really make me want to read it to find out the killer.

9. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
    This is the very first books that made me love to read, and even until now I'm still obsessed with it! It would be lovely to read it with another bookworms

10. Joyride by Anna Banks
      My currently favorite genre are light contemporary with feels, and I think this book has it all. I rarely heard a book club that discuss something like this, but I'd like to.
