Books : Updates

January 21, 2013
For my 26 books aimed this year :

I am so happy to announced that I enjoyed reading 4. Reckless by Cornelia Funke. The last Inkheart trilogy was an interesting journey for me *throughout my teenage - early adulthood years. 

I took Reckless from the table on the previous BigBadWolf days, thinking : 
Hey, I might enjoy my teenage year once again.
And I was right !

Briefly speaking, like Inkheart trilogy, Reckless is a fantasy genre children book. Not as strong as Harry Potter but acceptable enough. I had never counted how many fantasy children books I've read throughout my childhood & teenage years, but I know I was hooked on the genre for years before I started to accept wider choices in fiction.

Anyone wants to try children fantasy books, in much shorter length than the Inkheart, grab Reckless. But, no high expectations, this book was aimed for young adult audience. I loved it nonetheless. 


Last week, I finished reading 3. The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, another children fantasy book. Luckily I found the signed version at BigBadWolf , the one and only ! Who would have thought to find such precious book in million of books !

I've been a fan of Carlos Ruiz Zafon since the previous books and I didn't know he wrote a book for young adult *I think that was his first book? Anyhow, the book was creepy enough I had goosebumps over those evil clowns in the wardrobe. Imagine reading something sinister about clowns while listening to Kill the Clown by Soley. Not a good idea. 

All in all, I didn't really enjoyed the book much, maybe because the storyline was a little bit weak, and some things like the statues in the garden got no links to the story? *I was hoping to find something more to that. But for children book, what to expect much?


Last 2 weeks, I reread this for the third time : 2. The Five People You Met in Heaven and 1. For One More Day by Mitch Albom. I recommended books by Mitch so many times now. 

It's heart-breaking, and sad and inspiring and everything. I've read them many times, and I am sure I'll reread them again next year. 


PS :
A nice leisure time with light reading.
