BTT: 3 weeks in the row

I have missed 2 questions due to my trip to Padang, therefore I am making it all up in 1 post 🙂

What’s the most enjoyable, most fun, most just-darn-entertaining book you’ve read recently?

(Mind you, this doesn’t necessarily mean funny, since we covered that already. Just … GOOD.)

This question is very hard!! I have plenty of enjoyable reading…if it’s not enjoyable, I won’t continue reading it.

Hmm let me think…

I’ll go with Ring by Koji Suzuki. It was enjoyable because I adore Ringu (which have made into its American version called The Ring, I loved Ringu but I hate The Ring), I consider Ringu as one of the best horror movie ever made and Sadako is my all time favorite ghost character.

I have known that Ringu was originally from a novel…so I searched everywhere for the book, I found the Japanese version, but my Japanese is still far from able to read Japanese novel…so I waited for the translation to appear.

The waiting makes the book more enjoyable to read. The story from the book was different than the movie…it was enjoyable to compare both differences. And I love the book as much as I love the movie.

What’s the saddest book you’ve read recently?

(Is any body getting bored with this series of “recent” questions? Because I’m having fun!)

For this one, at first, I am a bit confused between My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult and The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, Both of these books make me cry.

But…

I will choose The Kite Runner as the saddest book I’ve read recently.

Why?

Because the sad part of My Sister’s keeper lies in the end of the book while The Kite Runner has more sad parts than MSK…and also because when I read this book, I can’t help myself to stop crying even though I was in public transportation.

I know that it was embarrassing to cry over a book in public transportation but I just couldn’t stop the tear from falling.

btt This week

Two-thirds of Brits have lied abour reading books they haven’t. Have you? Why? What Book?

Interesting question!!

I don’t think I have done that…maybe long ago for school assignment, but I can’t remember anymore what book was that. And the reason is of course because I don’t like the book assigned to me but I needed the score.

Other than that….I don’t think I have done it. I think it will totally embarrassed me if I claimed to have read something and know nothing about once someone ask me about it.

I have read the link (will be added after I use PC)…I really want to read 1984 by George Orwell because of Muse’s new Album. I love that band so much.

  1. Oh you’re conscience is clear!

    And I agree, the Kite Runner really is very sad.

    Thoughts and wishes for your family in Padang x

  2. My Sister’s Keeper was a real tear-jerker. I haven’t read The Kite Runner so I can’t talk about it. Which also brings me to my BTT. I haven’t lied about reading books that I didn’t.

  3. Haruki Murakami also just published his new work, “19Q4” which some reviewer said it is inspired by 1984’s George Orwell as well.
