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.
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.
Since my last It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, which happened to be on March, I have read (or unfinished reading) these books:
I Couldn’t finish The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown because the book is too boring for me. I was expecting it to be as thrilling as The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons but I was left bored to death by The Lost Symbol…Simply said, it wasn’t my book.
You can read my review (or more like reason why I couldn’t finish it) by clicking on the book cover.
This is the first short story collection by SK. I like it as much as I like Skeleton Crew….But I find it a bit strange that my favorite story of all is the non-horror one about brother and sister relationship.
You can read my review by clicking on the book cover.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t finish another book. This time, it was a book called The Temple of The Golden Pavilion by Yukio Mishima.
It was my first Yukio Mishima’s book. I couldn’t read pass through page 100. It bored me…again, it wasn’t my kind of book. I need something more thrilling or more heart.
I didn’t write review or reason why I couldn’t finish the book because I couldn’t grasp anything from this book.
As usual, I always managed to put Manga on my reading list although most Manga I read were Manga I have read several times.
Kanata Kara by Kyoko Hikawa has been my most favorite Shoujo Manga since early 90s till today and I know it will stay as my most favorite for years to come.
Kanata Kara is the only shoujo manga that can come close to shounen manga. Hikawa can beautifully mix love story with interesting adventure and great fighting scenes, she also put some good moral in it.
I really like love this manga. You can read my review (I also give link if you want to read it online ) by clicking on the Manga cover.
I have heard/read various review on this book. Some said it was great some said it was boring and hard to digest. My curiosity came not because of those review, it was because my favorite band, MUSE, made their latest album The Resistance based upon this book.
One of the song in that album is title United State of Eurasia. I could understand the lyric better now that I have read the book.
I will also read The Most Wonderful Fairy Tale by Nicholas Jobe as part of my Once Upon of Time V challenge. The book has no cover yet because it hasn’t been published yet. I will create my own cover of the book when I finally read it.
If possible, I want to read another book (I hope I can do that as I am a very slow reader). the book I want to read is also part of my Once Upon a Time V challenge. It is called The Little Yokozuna by Wayne Shorey.
Somewhere along, I will squeeze a manga and children book that tells about a certain Japanese Fairy Tale (and again for my Once Upon a Time challenge) .
I am looking forward to know what you have read and will read 🙂
