Review: The Martian by Andy Weir

Martian

Bring him back to Mars.

Science fiction is not on my top-to-buy list. It’s not even on the list. The reality of me picking and reading The Martian is highly unfathomable. But I guess, it’s destiny. Or it could be shit.

Well it’s, definitely, shit. Let me explain myself.

Review: V for Vendetta by Alan Moore, David Lloyd (Illustrator)

V for Vendetta

A man must live of with an idea. Although an idea, no matter how brilliant, will not suffice unless action is taken upon it. This story reminds us of our own. It’s something familiar, relatable.

There’s no flesh or blood within this cloak to kill. There’s only an idea. Ideas are bulletproof.

Recently I’ve noticed that a lot of people blame society for it’s high standards and media for it’s silent expectations. I’ve encountered numerous times where people point fingers without making sure their own hands are clean.

Review: Blankets by Craig Thompson

Maybe I was asking for too much.

Back then, this was the classic recipe of an average teenage life. Where people were heavily influenced by religion. Where sibling rivalry was such a trend. Where puppy love was something innocent. So for a 90’s kid perspective, like me, it all sounds relatable. Something, I thought, I want to read.

Review: Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk

FightClub

Too much testosterone.

Fight Club has been my second Palahniuk read. So far, there’s one thing I’ve noticed: It’s either he loves putting sexual element to his books or he’s just pretty horny. You decide.

Review: Make Good Art by Neil Gaiman, Chip Kidd (Designer)

Deciding to get an art course is to decide on a lot of things.

It’s to decide whether your passion would be enough to put food on the table, to afford a roof over your head, to pay the monthly bills—to earn a living. You’ll have a constant doubt. But you keep moving, until you reached graduation and everything hits you.. you have no damn clue where to start.

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!
