Upcoming Books to Read for 2013

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I started today in a foul mood care of Pao-Pao. I hate him so much earlier I wanted to be mean the whole day! But I know that wasn't the right thing to do. So I decided to find ways to let off steam. So I decided to have a Me-time. I had lunch by myself with coffee float! That eased up my nerves already.

I wanted to look for shoes to buy. Like maybe the new red Keds that seems to be gaining popularity these days (maybe because of Taylor Swift being associated with it). I wanted to judge it on hand, weigh it against the slim converse. So I was headed to the second floor where the entire shoe boutiques are, then I passed by Fully Booked and got stuck there for almost an hour, LOL! No shoe window shopping happened, but I really had a great time there though, as always! Surrounded by books consoles me, maybe it's a bibliophile-thing, I don't know. I already felt way better so I thought there was no sense looking for shoes. *Nerd alert!

My time in Fully Booked led me to this "To Read Book List" for this year:

1. The Umbrella Academy by Gerard Way  - Yes, the Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance band that brought us "Helena," "Welcome to the Black Parade," etc. It's not a novel, it's a comic book. I don't actually read super hero comic books (I only read W.I.T.C.H. LOL!) but the story intrigued me a lot and besides, I'm a fan of Gerard Way and I wanna see what he has to offer, since I've read good reviews about the comic book.

2. The Mysterious Benedict Society series by Trenton Lee - I found another series to delve myself into. I already downloaded ebooks of it. The illustrations remind me of "Series of Unfortunate Events," sort of. I'm very, very excited to read this the most! I wanted to ditch "Jane Eyre" but that wouldn't be right. I have to finish what I started.

3. Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart - So the review said its humorous, and I'm a sucker for rom-coms, and that it's aslo super sad... but I'll take the risk! And also I'm curious because its setting is in dystopian New York.

So I have to finish Jane Eyre first, then Mary Poppins Comes Back and Opens the Door by P.L. Travers, and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.

I really, really hope I finish all these in January! Ambisyosa lang? I know I can't finish it all by this month, with the rate of my reading! I will always be a slow reader, sigh...
