The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Eccentric and beguiling – two of the characteristics that I could associate Neil Gaiman and this book with. Though this didn’t appeal to me as much because it typically belongs to the super young section, I still loved the story’s oddness; something I would give credit for… Something that I have always been fascinated with.
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Being able to watch the movie gave me much desire to read this because the movie was phenomenal for me! The movie was really good. 😀 I was able to watch the movie first before I got the chance to read this so I was able to skip the part of being all creeped out with the whole story. But the book is really good too. Perhaps, should I have been able to read this when I was much younger, this might have been part of my best list. But being an “eccentric-bizarre” fan myself, Neil Gaiman still never disappointed me with my “odd” whims.
Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo? by Ramon Bautista
Hilarious tips para sa mga sawi sa pag-ibig, pag-aaral at iba pang “meron at walang kabuluhang” problema at katanungan. J This made me laugh “so hard” all night long. 😀
Lord of the Flies by William Golding
Children-turned- wild-“cannibal-like” isn’t a pretty sight – and that’s what makes this a great book.
Every You, Every Me by David Levithan
Emo, emo, emo. Full of young adult “emo-tism”, if that’s what they call it. I was disappointed because I liked David Levithan’s Everyday and this is just the total opposite for me. But I loved the photographs though. 😀 That’s what kept me interested. 😉
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
“When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love – and just how hard it pulled you under.” – Goodreads
I LOVE THIS! I terribly loved this book. I couldn’t put this book down. It made me stay up until 3am in the morning – that’s how good this is. I cried at the ending and it left me dreaming about it. I was deeply moved.
Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella
Another Sophie Kinsella stand-alone novel that I pretty sure did enjoyed too just like the others but The Undomestic Goddess still tops among her works for me.
Shopaholic Takes Manhattan, Shopaholic Ties the Knot, Shopaholic and Sister, Shopaholic and Baby and Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
I was able to read the Confessions of a Shopaholic years ago and I wasn’t able to finish the other parts after. I’ve always liked the fun, light readings of Sophie Kinsella so I decided to finish her Shopaholic series to give me a positive boost on my “freakish” month. 😀 It’s nice to delve into feel-good-funny novels once in a while. 😀
