Books that I've read this past 2 months. Necessarily in that order.
4 books in 2 month? That's lame, I know. Actually I've been buying books since April, but I never really got a chance to finish them. So these past 2 months, whenever I got the chance, I spent that time reading. Mostly in the airport waiting room. And yes, there are some books that still waiting for me to read them on my desk at home.
I realized one thing about books. There are books that can easily be read. I don't have to think. Just keep reading it until the last page of it. With these kind of book, I don't need a lot of time to finish them and absorb the story. This is how I felt about Divergent and Insurgent. I could read it easily. I read each book in a few hours. So far, I liked them but they're not my favorite.
And then there are the kind of books that require my time and focus to read them. I read this kind of book slowly, and I should really paying attention to understand the words. This is how I felt about The Confession. I spent days to finish that one. John Grisham is great, but still, my favorites for science-crime fiction go to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trilogy. But I might collect Grisham's books from now on.
And then, there's 50 Shades Of Grey. Too many sex, in my opinion. And most of them are not pretty. ha! However I still want to read the sequel.
Do you have another books recommendation?
And oh, I had the situation when I wish I were that kind of girl who bring mace or gun whenever I go ( I know Jen would approve this) a couple of days ago. It's when a snake tried to climb to my head through my arm. I hate hate hate snake. Jeez! I know that when you're somewhere in a forest, that's something to be expected. But still, a snake fell on me? I wanted to kill it in the middle of my screaming. And man, that thing is fast. Hopefully it won't happen again in the future. Ever.
p.s : What accompanies you when you read? Mine mostly coffee, but sometimes I like to read accompanied by tarik tea as well (like when I read The Confession).
