My right hand is in bandages as I write this due to tendonitis of the right thumb, and I was advised to refrain from using the injured area, but I just can’t keep myself from putting up this post, haha. Anyway, I have figured out a way of typing without using my right thumb, so I guess I am still okay. (Just don’t tell my therapist? Hehe)
I’ll make this post rather short, so here’s a recap of my April readings:
- What Is So Amazing About Grace? by Philip Yancey. Currently on the last chapter and I am sure this will be a five-star read.
- Atonement by Ian McEwan. 5/5 stars. I initially rated this with a 4, but after I watched the movie, I was able to appreciate it more, so I chaged my rating. Heee. 😛
- If on a winter’s night a traveler by Italo Calvino. Did not finish. Will not attempt to finish. Hmf.
- Properly Scandalous (Young and Scambitious 2) by Mina V. Esguerra. 3/5 stars. Posting a review right after my injury is totally healed. 😀
Now, on to May! (I hope the summer heat will trickle down soon.)
I will not be ambitious this month considering my hectic schedule at work and in order to have plenty of rest before classes start again next month, so I only chose 2 books:
- To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. The book club’s book of the month and a difficult book to read, I heard. I won’t let this distract me , though. I just hope I won’t chuck this off just like what I did with If on a winter’s night a traveler and Lolita, haha.
- Manila Noir edited by Jessica Hagedorn. Another addition to my Filipiniana challenge.
Have a great May, everyone! 🙂
