A Random Blog of Everything I like
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. This event is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey.
It has been such along time since I did my last It’s Monday post, it was on January 3, 2011 on my other blog.
I decided to do regular post for this meme but not as a weekly meme, this will be a monthly meme.I want to keep my track on what I have been reading in a month and the possibility of what I will read next month.
I am going to do this meme every 3rd or 4th week of each month.
Shame in Blood is written by Tetsuo Miura.
The blurb is very promising but the story itself is not as interesting as I expected it to be.
It was about a man who felt ashamed of his bloodline. He thought his family was cursed.
This book hasn’t been published yet. I was very impressed with Nick’s book called Shelter (also unpublished), shelter was very powerful. Because of Shelter, I want to read more books by him.
He kindly sent mean other book titled A Whisper Softly, a story about 3 people sharing their story in order to reveal the hidden place of an abducted boy.
I like the book but not as much as I love Shelter.
This manga is a historical fiction about French Revolution.The main characters are Marie Antoinette and Oscar (a woman raised like a man and become the commander of French Royal Army)
Let’s just put excerpt from my review to show how much I like this manga
Rose of Versailles is definitely, by no argument at all, the most beautiful Shojo Manga I have ever read. I don’t mind a bit reading the excessive love story throughout all 10 volumes of this manga. This manga has powerful story and the characters are all well built, it was no surprise to know that a lot of Japanese Kids started asking their history teacher whether Oscar really exist in the history or not.

Despite the fact that everyone kept saying he was not a good writer,but I couldn’t escape his charm in making interesting story. I really like The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, tho I don’t like his earlier works.
He is never going to be my favorite author but I still enjoy his works. I hope I will also like this one.
Talking about what I will read after The Lost Symbol is a bit difficult, I usually made plans I couldn’t keep when it relates to to-read books.
So far, these are the books I am planning to read next:
So… what do read this Monday?
