Timely To Be Read: Fruit Salad

Fruit Salad is the perfect name for this TTBR since there’s a lot of mix of genres. And let’s be honest, I’ve been craving fruit salad recently. So this time, TTBR includes 9 books! My highest book number–achievement unlocked! And it’s purely adult fiction, so I’m sorry I didn’t include YA. I just couldn’t! I just had enough YA for now.

Teaser Tuesday: The Girl with All the Gifts

The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey

The strap is designed so they never have to put their hands in front of Melanie’s face. Melanie sometimes says, “I won’t bite.” She says it as a joke, but Sergeant’s people never laugh.

Lez be real. It’s not Tuesday. But I’ve been watching a lot of Walking Dead (Video Game) in YouTube. I actually like it better than the actual TV Series, and it just feels a little more realistic plus less annoying. Anyway, I watched pewdiepie’s walk through in case you were wondering. I like how emotional and connected he is especially at the end of both seasons. *bro fist*

So obviously, this book is about zombie apocalypse! Which is horror, and I don’t normally read that genre. Let’s admit it. I’m pretty much a pussy, but a cute one. I’ve been loving it recently! I can tell that it’s a good book already. I’m excited to finish this, so I can share my opinion with you guys! The idea of zombies has always freaked me out. So I never really got the hype. But now, I get it why it’s so engaging. BECAUSE THEY’RE (literally) RUNNING FOR THEIR LIVES.

Tell me if you’ve read it! Or you have read something similar. I would really love to know if you enjoy these kinds of books, and if you have any recommendations for me to read. My book collection is in dire need of more horror books. But bear in mind that I’m still a beginner, so no Stephen King’s Carrie scary please, hahaha!

Book Blogger Hop: Reading Environment

So I’m cheating a little bit because I didn’t pick this week’s question, mainly because I’m a rebel and I liked last week’s question better. Sue me.

Last week’s question is:

Can you read in a room with noise or do you have to have total quiet?

I definitely need silence, whenever I read. It doesn’t have to be completely quiet, but enough to keep me from getting distracted. I don’t know why, but I just can’t concentrate whenever I can hear noises. I actually envy people who could read while listening to music–that’s amazing! Go and audition for the Britain’s Got Talent! Pretty sure you’ll woe Simon in no time.

This is where I usually read. Plus the preview of the book I’m currently reading hehe. This place is perfect because I have an electric fan right beside me (because its hell here in the Philippines) to keep me from melting. It’s part of the living room and the kitchen is right around the corner. So snacks are in reachable distance. And I just lie here and read. Sometimes I get acrobatic and start doing different positions, hahaha!

Review: Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #1) by Laini Taylor

DaughterofSmoke

When it comes to YA, almost everything is overhyped. And this is not an exception.

But to be honest, I wish it was. It had a lot of potential including the plot, writing style, variety of characters, and the fact that its fantasy, so I feel like there was an effort to do some studying. Still, it wasn’t enough to compensate all the hype it got.

Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

Statistical Probability of Love at First SightBullshit.

“Hadley meets the perfect boy. Oliver is British, sits in her row.”

Bullshit. This part of the blurb is hilarious. Is being British one of the qualifications to be called perfect? I’ve read the novel. Pretty sure he’s no near Johnny Deep (aka perfection).

Review: My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

My Life Next Door

Typical.

Samantha, a white girl, thinks she’s so “normal,” and I quote, “..blond hair, blue eyes, freckles, nothing special” Damn right you are! You keep on talking like that and you’ll be every other girl in the neighbourhood. You’re a rich girl. I’m sure we can find and buy you something special. So stop fucking moaning.

Update: How I Spent My Holiday

So we went somewhere.. And it’s crazy how these things won’t register as something real, unless we actually go there and experience it ourselves. What I’m trying to say is we (it means my family plus me) went to Baler in Quezon Province–it’s a local tourist spot (that I’ve never heard of) in the Philippines.

If you’re a beach junkie and you’re looking for a good place to hang out or just relax without clearing your bank account then this is the place.
