Hi friends! I was planning on skipping this week’s notes/diaries (because I don’t want to post the same feature as last week) but I have a little time to kill, and I feel talkative at this hour of the night, so please bear with me. (Didn’t I say that this feature is actually just an excuse for me keep on talking? :P)
Between last Wednesday and today, I made some progress on A Bottle of Storm Clouds, where I have just finished The Just World of Helena Jimenez. This one’s my most favorite as of now (I still have 3 more stories to go) because it talks about justice and law and punishment, and well, it just feels so close to home. The story’s so good (and kinda messed up my mind) that I found myself staring at the page for several seconds, my mind trying to digest everything. Eliza Victoria, you write good stories. And I mean really really good stories.
Last weekend, I wasn’t able to read the last installment on the New York Trilogy (as planned) because I had to do some catch-up reading on something different last weekend. This week, promise. I think my mind’s ready for another round of messin’ up, Paul Auster.
Come to think of it, I didn’t even realize until now that the books I chose to read for this month are all going to mess my mind. Hah.
And then there’s Don’t Forget The Soap which I just finished (and which I’m going to write a post on later this week, please look out for it.) It’s a non-fiction book about mothers, particularly the author’s mom, and her practical tips on living and spending and not forgetting the soap. 4 stars on this truly helpful book. 🙂
For the first time in a very long time, I got to visit a Bookstore last weekend and I got this wonderful collection of short stories from the woman who won this year’s Nobel Prize for Literature. Yay for shorts!
I found other great books as well but almost all of them I already have e-copies of, so it was fairly easy resisting the urge to buy more. 😀
Have a great week everyone! 🙂
