February & March Book List

feb_march_booklist

This was supposed to be a two separate lists but I was too busy the past two months that I rarely had the time to read. Last February, I was only able to read one book, I didn’t even finish it that month! I was only able to finish it last month. After that, I started reading another book, and another one; I haven’t finished both of them yet. Meh.

When I started Book List, I told myself that I would only list the books that I finished reading for a specific month. But, well, because I can’t even finish one book for a month, I decided to include what I’m currently reading. And because I only read one book for February, I thought it’d be fine to combine it with March Book List. So yeah, those were my three books for February & March Book List.

  1. The Boyfriend List / E. Lockhart – This is about Ruby–a teenager–and her list of, duh-obviously, “boyfriends”. This is a fun Young Adult book that should be an easy read (I was just really busy with other stuff). I rated it 4/5 on Goodreads.
  2. Gathering Blue / Lois Lowry – This is the second book of The Giver Quartet but has a totally different set of characters and setting. Upon finishing a chapter on this book, I decided not to continue reading (for now) because I’m not really feeling this book and it’s giving me headaches. LOL. What I meant to say is that I’d rather read light and fun stories now that I’m super busy with work and other stuff.
  3. This is How You Lose Her / Junot Diaz – I started reading this, after temporarily quitting on Gathering Blue, thinking that this would be fun to read. Well…it’s okay. Haha! Sorry, I’m not really good at this! Anyway, I must say I’m liking the style of writing. The Dominican slangs can be confusing; though sometimes I would get them because I have a little background on Spanish. I’ve read and loved a lot of “Chick Lits” so this one–having men’s POV–is really refreshing to read. I started reading this on the last day of March and I’ve finished 37% of the book but I think I can finish this next week.

BTW, I also updated my reading challenge on Goodreads because I think I can finish my initial goal of 14 books this month. And we still have eight months before the year ends so, yeah, I should read more!

    I’m on the Goodreads Reading Challenge too! My target for this year is 100 books and so far I have read 37 books. Planning to finish the 38th tonight so I could get on with Laini Taylor’s Dreams of Gods & Monsters which is the much-anticipated conclusion to the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy.

    I really like reading about your reading list. I used to be an avid reader, although now, I find myself doing a little but more garden and kitchen work. I’m currently reading “What the Dog Saw” by Malcom Gladwell, but I do most of my reading when I’m away from Manila 🙂 Great post!

    I suddenly missed the feeling of reading a book. I am busy — juggling a lot and I have been skipping my books. I’m currently reading Eleanor and Park though. Will finish it this week I hope. You and Nathalie inspired me to go back to reading again. 🙂 If I read, I write better.

      Any book could count on a reading challenge, I think. Hehe. But if you’re on the Goodreads Reading Challenge, I’m not really sure if the book has to be registered on their database…
