Another month, another set of required readings. But first, here are the books that I have read last month.
1. The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales by Oliver Sacks – (4/5) Our book club’s book of the month. Interesting read about different neurological conditions. I was reminded of the complexity of our brain.
2. Stoner by John Edward Williams – (5/5) At first, I thought this is a boring book but I was so wrong. It was a remarkable reading experience being a witness to Professor Stoner’s life.
3. My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories by Stephanie Perkins – (4/5) A collection of short stories that I was compelled to read because of Rainbow Rowell. Cute and charming love stories for the upcoming holidays.
And for Les Miserables, I am at Volume 3: Marius. I already met the Friends of the ABC, which makes me sing Do You Hear the People Sing. Like a lot.
Because it’s my goal to finish this Les Miserables tome before the year ends, I am limiting my reading to these short and easy reads:
1. Dwellers by Eliza Victoria – Our book club’s book for the discussion that will happen in the Filipino ReaderCon on November 15.
2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – This would be my first Perkins book. After reading her short story in My True Love Gave to Me, I finally decided to read this.
3. Animorphs #32 (The Separation) and #33 (The Illusion) by K.A. Applegate – Because I need to move on with my Animorphs project.
That’s my list for November. And I’m excited for the Filipino ReaderCon. Hope to see you there!
