The Hunger Within

This series,is I can say,one of my favorites! The plot,is fresh,the twists,the love story,everything that you can ask for in a book! Although I was happy that it took a short time for the last book to be released (meaning the agony of waiting for what will happen on the last book didn't last long),I of course am saddened with the fact that it would all end on the last book. No more salivating and getting crazy as to when I can put my hands on the next chapter. I am talking about the ever-famous THE HUNGER GAMES,ladies and gentlemen. And, since it would be turned into a movie, which I hope would give justice to how the book was beautifully written bu Suzanne Collins, I want to share this trailer. Team Peeta! ~woooot!~

Say,it's Archie!

I can still remember the time I first met this guy. My family and I are waiting to board the airplane,and being a kid and all,of course I went on exploring,then I saw him. I ran to my Dad and asked him if I can buy him.Yes,his name is Archie Andrews,and I've been a Fan since I was a little kid. Every month from that day on,I would ask either one of my parents to buy one Digest for me. I love the whole Riverdale Gang! But of course, I'd choose Betty Cooper,the Brainy Blondie with a kind heart and all-around mechanic among all of them (tee-hee!). Sometimes I really don't understand what heiress Veronica Lodge and Betty like about "Carrot-Top,freckled faced" Archie Andrews, I'm guessing it would be the 'Boyish Charm'. I also like his pal Jughead who thinks nothing but Hamburgers but I like Reggie 'The Snob' Mantle the least. Every character is memorable for me,from Mr.Svenson the Janitor to Polly, Betty's big sister. That's why when I saw this 400-page comicbook at National Bookstore,I felt that it was fate because it was just lying on the counter. I didn't think twice in buying it! I don't give spoilers but this comicbook will let you see how Archie and the Gang looked like the first time the comic was printed and how Archie came to meet all the other characters. This one goes to my 'Important Books' shelf. :)

Boook Blog (Firsts)

Okay. It's 3 o'clock in the morning,and everybody's still asleep.I tried browsing through facebook and saw Chachic's Book Nook's 2011 favorites. Yes, I have developed passion in reading and writing since I can remember (But I guess Archie Andrews was really the root cause of it all), yet I never tried to blog a single review of the books I've read (except in high school), so here I am in, inspired by the site http://filipinobookbloggers.wordpress.com and  Chachic's Book Nook to start Book Blogging! One of the probable reasons why I haven't done it is maybe because I felt afraid I wouldn't give justice as to how that particular book should be reviewed,yet I'm gonna try now!LOL. And don't worry,I don't give out spoilers *wink*

These books would be 5 of the books I've read the year 2011,in which I've picked  randomly:

1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I've been hearing good reviews about this book a LOT yet I put it in my TBR list just because I thought it's the usual YA story,in which of course,after reading it, I realized how wrong I was!And I have always loved Paris!

2. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Fan much?? I loooove Steph and her books! Anna and Lola made me feel like a teenager again. Though of course, each book is different from the other, I like them because they are like a breath of fresh air getting all gooey inside with scenes that you would really be able to relate to. I hope to meet my own Cricket this year <3

3. The Single Girl's To-Do List by Lindsey Kelk

The genre's that I actually read are usually YA's and Chiclit. And since Shopaholic, I never thought I'd find another good read that would make me enjoy,but this book did!

4. Incarceron by Catherine Fisher

This, I can say is an interesting read. A combination of old and new worlds and yet,you wouldn't really know who's who.Sapphique,it's seconcd book is already on my TBR.

5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

This book is beautifully written,and has the perfect spices that you'd want. What I like the most is that the heroine is kick-ass,and there's a different twist that you wouldn't expect.

So there.Hopefully and it's part of my New Year's resolution, to be able to review and blog about the books I have read so that I can share it with you guys.Ta-ta for now!
