My Current Reading List


reading list

I must be delusional to think I have time to read all these! This list doesn’t even include everything; I left out some series (Percy Jackson, Artemis Fowl, Ender’s Game).

reading list

1) A Visit From The Goon Squad, Jennifer Egan
2) Before I Fall, Lauren Oliver
3) The Book of Awesome: Snow Days, Bakery Air, Finding Money in Your Pocket, and Other Simple, Brilliant Things , Neil Pasricha
4) By The Time You’ll Read This, I’ll Be Dead, Julie Anne Peters
5) A Game of Thrones, George RR Martin
6) Bossypants, Tina Fey
7) The Coke Machine (The Dirty Truth Behind The World’s Favorite Soft Drink), Michale Blanding
8) If I Stay, Gayle Forman
9) Now You See Her, James Patterson

reading list

10) Summer and the City, Candace Bushnell
11) The Sky is Everywhere, Jandy Nelson
12) Room, Emma Donoghue
13) Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have), Sarah Mlynowski
14) Perfect You, Elizabeth Scott
15) When Madeline Was Young, Jane Hamilton
16) On The Beach, Nevil Shute
17) Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad
18) The Secret Sharer, Joseph Conrad
19) The Immense Journey, Loren Eisley

I got the books in the last row (plus Erica Jong’s Parachutes and Kisses) from Book Sale for a measly 67PHP! I’m tempted to go back and paw through the 5PHP shelf (the branch I bought them from was closing when I got there so I didn’t have much time) but I probably should wait until I’ve made a dent in this list.

Have you read any of these?

    Goon Squad’s an excellent book but overhyped tbh (haha!!).

    Started reading Bossypants a month ago. Some funny shit, that book is <3

    I’ve read the first chapter of Goon Squad and a few pages of Bossypants. I’m still not finished with Mockingjay and it’s been over a month!! I keep on going back to cheesy chicklits that make me go ^________^ also the disadvantage of Kindle is that when you have a lot of books on your queue you just wanna switch to the next one even though this one isn’t even finished yet.

    I think I’m gonna check out The Book of Awesome and Ten Things We Did Next. Thanks for the recommendations and pretty collage!!

    I’m planning to read the Room, too! I still have a lot of books unread on my desk. :(

    I’ve read Room. It’s nice though I wasnt able to finish it. It was a requirement for school.
