Mr. Darcy.

I am a self-proclaimed bookworm. Yes, indeed. The first book I ever finished reading was Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone and that was before entering high school. Not those Classic Literature- wish I read them first. Since then, I never stopped reading.

Then I found my way loving Gaarder’s works. My all-time favorite are “Sophie’s World” and “Orange Girl.” Paul was the first guy who gave me a book as a gift and it was “Christmas Mystery.” I’ve also read Solitaire Mystery and Castle in the Pyrenees. What made me fell in love with Gaarder is his philosophical views on life, love and souls that reflected on the characters he made alive in those books.

Then there goes Austen. I watched The Pride and Prejudice (Where Knightly starred) and fell for Mr. Darcy. After finishing the movie, I went to the bookstore and bought the book. It’s one of those rare times when the movie came first before you liked reading the story. Anyway, from then on, I found myself loving Jane Austen. Some of the books I have of her were given by some friends. And there are so many other books I fell in love with.

Then there’s ebooks. Some people think its better reading the real books, flipping pages. But ebooks are practical (Note: I’m a nurse. Salary increase, people) and imagine having all your books in one gadget?

So I found myself lost in this world. Escapism. Wanderlust.

Anywhere I’ll be taking myself, I’ll be bringing a book with me. Twice the adventure!

Levels.

I am in my 23rd year as a tenant here on earth. Some people in my age either works or are studying. For some, it could be both. Anyway, working as a health care practitioner in this country feels like I’m a slave and in a stagnant phase, clueless of where the efforts I put are going. Yes. Though, I am still hoping this could bring me to places and I am not losing that. It’s not something that I could easily give up. It’s always too early to quit.

So while I’m on this crisis where I am stuck, not going anywhere. I enjoy the life that increases our liver enzymes. What’s important in this phase is that I have friends I can get drunk with. Dance with. Laugh with. And be suicidal/Bayani/strong/weakwith. And yes, that Lumpia snack counts.

Epub and Mobi.

The season of book-reading marathon came and I’ve indulged myself to ebooks (Yes, I am an e-reader convert already) and my eyes hurt and still don’t care.

 

The Fallen Series.

Move over, vampires. Angels are on their way to the mainstream. It’s a young adult fantasy novel written by Lauren Kate that started publishing its first last 2009. Luce meets Daniel, both drawn with each other… experiencing the familiarity. Daniel, Cam and all the other Fallen Angels help Luce to break a curse that keeps Daniel and Luce away from each other for ages. Daniel kept falling in love with the same girl over eternity.

Why We Broke Up.

Inside the box are the reasons why they broke up. It’s a young adult debut of Daniel Handler that talks about Min Green and Ed Slaterton’s breakup. It has illustrations of the things found inside the box.

“Two bottle caps, a movie ticket, a folded note, a box of matches, a protractor, books, a toy truck, a pair of ugly earrings, a comb from a motel room, and every other item collected over the course of a giddy, intimate, heartbreaking relationship.”

Min gave this box to Ed, each stuff comes with letter about their story, heartfelt emotions and… why they broke up. It is written uniquely and reminded people of their break-ups and stupid stuffs they’ve done before for love.


Ready Player One.

It’s a sci-fi book written by Ernest Cline. The story happened in the year 2044 and the earth is nearly coming to its end. It’s about a boy who lives in time where in the offline world comes to blur and the online world is what kept the people up and about. Still reading the book, so ciao!
