April Book List

April Book List

Hi! How’s everyone doing? I can’t wait for this season to end! I don’t understand how I’m still not melting (I wish my fats would just melt off my body!!); this heat is ridiculous!

Times like these make me miss working in a “real” office (FREE aircon, IYKWIM). We do have an aircon at home but still. Also, I feel guilty every time I plug-in that thing (ugh, why can’t we have cheaper electricity!?).

Yes, I’m thankful for the random rain showers these past few weeks. But, oh gods, this weather is still so bipolar! Sometimes I don’t want to do anything and just lay on the stone-cold floor and not move at all because I might sweat. Some days I do that, not for the whole day, though. Only during the hottest hours of the day. Sometimes I read too. (Yeah, I know, why am I not talking about books here, right? My bad. Heh.)

So this month, I finished one book I started reading last March and I managed to start and finish reading a new book. Two books. I only read two books last month. I suck. No. Actually that’s only like one book and a half of another one. What happened to me? Ah, right, busy. Sometimes being busy with other stuff makes me sad. Anyway, here’s NOT a review:

  1. This is How You Lose Her / Junot Diaz – I finished this on the second week of April. I already said something about this on my previous book list post. To be honest, I’m still not sure I feel anything (at least not strong feelings) about this book and the story, or for the characters. As I am not very articulate, I would only describe this one as cold. Actually, I feel ranting about this book and how I sort-of felt like I wasted my time reading this. But I won’t because I don’t really hate this one that much. Also, happy thoughts only! Haha! Anyway, I rated this 3/5 on Goodreads. I think I should read other books of Diaz, I heard they’re REALLY good.
  2. The Boy Book / E. Lockhart – The sequel to “The Boyfriend List” I read last February; I would read this one on one sitting or two if I have a lot of free time because I’m really liking this series. I like learning more about Ruby Oliver and her friends. And I admit, I kind of hate Kim more. The story is also relate-able. I love Ruby’s wit and lists! While and after reading this, I felt guilty for not enjoying the first book more than I did. Maybe I should read it again! There’s a big chance you’ll be hooked to this series and on Roo’s life (like I did) so yes, go ahead and read it now. Rated it 4/5 on Goodreads. Can’t wait to have more time to read the next one!

Truthfully, I wanted to dive on the next Ruby Oliver book and/or continue reading Gathering Blue but… As I kept saying on the Internet, I’m “spring cleaning” and I saw a lot of my to-read books (in print) literally piling up! So yeah, I told my self to read only printed books for this month…which is harder, TBH. Hey, it’s not like I could read books at night (I turn off the lights hours before sleeping); I mean, I could, but I shouldn’t, I’ve learned my lessons. But…challenge accepted! Good luck to me, I hope to read more than two books, haha!

I’m curious…
What book series are you currently hooked to?

      Naku sis, true! Sabi nila nagbaba sila ng rate per KWH but I’m sure it’ll still be higher than last month. Huhu.
      Ako naman, I envy you for having so much time to craft, cook, and blog them! Hehe 🙂

      Yes, this heat is unbearable if not for the AC. 😐
      Honestly, I’d be happy to read even just one book in a month. Considering how busy I am this past few months, finishing one book means I gave myself enough me-time. 🙂
