March Required Reading: 2015

February 2015 Required Reading Report:

1. Love Walked In by Marissa de los Santos - (3/5 Stars) Enjoyed the alternating narration and how it ended up not focusing on romantic love, not entirely.

2. Perdido Street Station by China Mieville - (5/5 Stars) I feel bludgeoned after reading this. No, I feel like I took some dreamshit after reading this, and then bludgeoned.

March 2015 Required Reading:

1. The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy - This is TFG's book of the month and it's shaping to be a bit of a sombre read, but an enthralling  one. (Task 7: A book that takes place in Asia)

2. Van Gogh by Pascal Bonafoux - This will be my first time to read an art book. And I know nothing about art, but I like looking at Van Gogh's. Bonafoux, a renowed art historian, recounts Vincent's career and his personal life. And most importantly showcases some of his works and their inspirations. Well see how this goes. (Task 4: published by an indie press)

  1. LOL at your comment about Perdido Street Station. I'll be waiting for your review. :P

    1. Processing mode pa kasi. (<-Parang si Council) Haha.

    2. I'm having a hard time with the indie press. Congratulations on making some progress on the Read Harder Challenge. I was on a roll in January, then February got a little slower. I'm currently reading The Road by Cormac McCarthy for my award winning novel (pulitzer), but im not as engage as I expected. To say its a struggle is an understatement.

    3. Thanks! Oh, I had a hard time with The Road too. I am not exactly sure if it was the prose or the subject matter. Or maybe it was both.
