For the past month, I haven’t been doing much reading. I felt a bit guilty for not doing so since I promised myself 50 books this year…and see how much I’ve been reading. *points to counter* See. And I haven’t budged from my 24 remaining book reviews, which means I’m totally falling behind. There you go.
Yesterday, after packing my stuff for the building transfer at work, I walked around Eastwood while waiting for my brother. I visited Toy Town to check if they have some rubix cube for my brother, then I dropped by A Different Bookstore, but didn’t find anything interesting, only books about camping gear. Since my brother hasn’t texted yet, I headed to National Bookstore to see if there was anything. I wasn’t really planning to buy anything since my dad is about to arrive with the books I ordered plus I badly need to finish Pride and Prejudice before I lose what I understand of it so far (classic novels with old language make me do that :p). But the moment I stepped inside National Bookstore, I knew I just had to buy the book I spotted: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.
I only heard of the book from Ate Toni, but I never found the book. But yesterday, there was an entire display at National Bookstore, with the next two books also available (but not in paperback, huhu). I immediately took a copy of Twilight to the counter, and to my delight, it was 25% off. :D
I’m halfway through the book and I am loving it. I think it helps that I could imagine Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, so it’s easier on the image. It’s a mature young adult book, and since it’s new, it’s very easy to relate to. And I know this last thing is kind of shallow, but I love that the book is so thick, meaning there’s more to read. That probably didn’t make sense, but what the heck. :P
I have a feeling Lizzie (the other and newer credit card) will be exercised again in the next few days as I think once I finish this book, I will buy the next two ones, even if they are in hardcover (unless the paperback versions come along all of a sudden :D). I’ll definitely post a review of this once I have finished it, and I’m pretty sure I would have fallen in love with all the characters by that time. :P
But wait, there’s more! :P My dad arrived today with my stash of new books (as if I don’t have enough books waiting to be read, heh), which would definitely perk up my reading activities:
Top to bottom: Stargirl Journal, The Message Remix in Hypercolor Pink (my second one), 50 Reasons I Love Being Catholic by Liz Kelly, Miss Invisible by Laura Jensen Walker, Sushi For One? by Camy Tang, Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Yay. :D I still have a lot to finish reading, but the excitement of these new ones just fueled my desire to read them as well.
Now I’m off. Must not let Bella and Edward wait. ;)
