My Reading List this Month

Sorry guys, I know I have been a bad blogger of late.  I haven't posted anything for the past few weeks. BOO!  January was a lot busier than I thought.  With 3 weddings, 2 housewarmings, 1 debut, and a number of birthdays, parties and launches, the first month of 2010 proved to be much more hectic than the holiday season.

Thank God February seems to take on a much slower pace.  I finally have time to catch up on all the things I raided from the shelves of Fully Booked and Powerbooks.

1. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.

I looooooove this.  Atwood is a known feminist writer and I was a bit wary at first.  Good thing her novel, which won a lot of acclaimed when it was first published, was anything but preachy.  Instead it creates this perfectly scary dystopian society where women are valued for their ovaries above anything else.  This book will scare you and then more importantly it will make you think about the world today and where women actually stand.

2. My Life by Bill Clinton

It's a pretty thick book.  I am an advocate of reading fiction and history and have only started buying autobiographies of late.  I'm not yet done with his story about hundreds of pages to go through still, but like any internet-gossip-hungry-kid from this generation, I do hope he has at least a chapter about the whole Monica incident. Hee.

3. Saturday by Ian McEwan

I read Atonement a long time ago and was amazed.  Hopefully this one will be equally amazing as well.  It has a very curious story line.  Can't wait to start.  Have to finish #2 first.


  1. Sounds like a couple of good ol books, eh?!

    "vacation-cebu.com - it's community driven, and I gotta tell you, it's much cheaper than a tour guide -

    it costs nothing!!!
