ReaderCon Filipino Friday: Filipino Literature
Yes, I do read Filipino Literature but the quantity is a bit disappointing the cause being that of me wanting my comfort reads more. YA, children's lit, fantasy etc. Anyhow, I am a fan of Jessica Zafra. If you want some dose of humor and wit try her books. I have her Twisted (1-9) books, Womenagerie, Mananaggal Terrorizes Manila, Twisted Travels, and The Flip Reader. I also love Pol Medina Jr.'s Pugad Baboy Comics, they're hilarious. I think I have 1 until 21. If you want to feel nostalgic read Bob Ong's ABNKKBSNPLAko. It's funny and it brings back memories of student life. And I also love Mina Esguerra'a Fairy Tale Fail, my copy is an e-book that I won from Chachic's Book Nook (Thanks Chachic!). I don't read that many chick lits but I really liked this one. It was such a fun and kilig read. It's a whole lot relatable too because the setting is here in the Philippines and the characters are Filipinos.
Well that's about it. This is my shortest post ever! I really need to read more Filipino Literature. On that note, I'll share with you some Filipino Literature that I have on my wish list. Filipino Heroes League by Paolo Fabregas (looks really awesome, love me some superhero) Looking Back, Death by Garrote, and Dirty Dancing all three by Ambeth Ocampo (looks like a fun way to get some Philippine History into my thick skull). There is also Naermyth by Karen Francisco (I love dystopian fantasy). Lastly, I'd also love to try Mina Esguerra again, perhaps her Love Your Frenemies book.
