Fav Books Mid-Year 2016

Déjà vu, much?

These are some of the books I’ve enjoyed reading so far:

On Writing, Sky Key, The Guilty, On Such A Full Sea

Can anyone tell me how 2016 is halfway over? Or should I say there’s still half a year to go?

Books Of The Month: March 2016

I know I know I know. I didn’t read a lot, but I still read. That has to count for something, right?

City of Bones by Cassandra ClareCity of Bones by Cassandra Clare

One phrase description: Incest? 

Quote:

Only people with no purpose are unhappy.

My general thoughts: I liked it. I didn’t love it. I didn’t hate it. But then again I’m different about a lot of things.

Get Me Out of Here by Sachiko Murakami

One phrase description: A book of poems you could potentially read at an airport.

Quote:

Hint: we’re not really “here.”

My general thoughts: The cover looks much better in real life. I’m sure the poems read better when read by everyone else as well. What can I say? I’m a wannabe poet who wants to appreciate poetry but lacks the ability to do so.

On Such a Full Sea by Chang-Rae Lee
On Such a Full Sea by Chang-Rae Lee

One phrase description: A book that gets better and better.

Quote:

A tale, like the universe, they tell us, expands ceaselessly each time you examine it, until there’s finally no telling exactly where it begins, or ends, or where it places you now.

My general thoughts: I enjoyed the novel enough to write a paper on it.

Now onto what I want (and kind of need) to finish next month…

The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary by Andrew Westoll

Why: Remember when I said this?

“And because I want to be honest for once, there was another book I was supposed to read for class. I barely opened it.”

I finally opened it!

I’m aiming to finish the book before my final exam. Just to decrease my chances of failing.

As always, happy reading!
