Book Reviews 2019

This 2019, I’ve decided to start a reading challenge on Goodreads. My goal is to finish twelve books. I know it’s a very safe goal (one book per month) but I didn’t want to be overwhelmed by my goal and end up not enjoying what I’m reading. Anyway, the first quarter of 2019 went extremely well. I’ve read four books and I’m excited to share with you some of my thoughts about it.

Review: South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami

Married life is leaving me with tons of things on my to-do list. I have a list of blog posts to write since late August that I still haven’t written and I still have books waiting to be read. My old single life had weekends to relax and do things but my new married life has weekends for chores and responsibilities. I love it, I really do but sometimes, I do miss my single life – especially when I see my blog and all my books slowly being forgotten because real life needs to be lived.

Manila International Book Fair 2017

The Manila International Book Fair was held last September 13-17 at the SMX Convention Center. It is a five-day affair for all book lovers out there. There are a lot of exhibitors and events happening across the five days but to be honest, the only reason why I wanted to go was for the 20% off for all books at National Bookstore and Fully Booked.

Hear The Wind Sing/Pinball 1973 by Haruki Murakami

After reading about the unnamed narrator in A Wild Sheep Chase and Dance, Dance, Dance, I knew I had to get my hands on the novels that started it all. The mystery that enveloped his character was something I had to understand. And as much as A Wild Sheep Chase and Dance, Dance, Dance were two books that could stand on its own, I knew reading the rest of the series would blow my mind.
