Every Sunday, I’m going to write about books I’ve read the past week, books I’m currently reading and anything else that has to do with books.
This week I’ve read:
One of my favorite manga series. The story and the art are amazing, as always.
– Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter by Mario Vargas Llosa
A young student Marito starts a relationship with an older woman, Julia and meets Pedro Camacho, a scriptwriter of radio soap operas. Chapters alternate between Marito’s story and radio stories that Camacho writes. Most radio stories I liked, some I didn’t, but the book is still really good and it made me want to read more books by this author.
– 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
– Up For Renewal by Cathy Alter
Cathy Alter decides to follow advice from magazines for a year.
I almost gave up on this one. It’s badly written and quite boring. I just couldn’t make myself care about anything that happened to this woman.
– The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio
I borrowed this from library, but it’s a short version (18 stories). So I found the rest on Gutenberg and now I’m reading them little by little.
– The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope
I’ve read about 50 pages so far. Its beautifully written and the characters are interesting.
– Hate List by Jennifer Brown
This book is on my list for YA Saves reading challenge. It’s about a school shooting. It’s written from the POV of shooter’s girlfriend. I started it today and so far, it’s good.
