Required Reading: FEBRUARY

Before January even came to a close, I was already contemplating on which books to read for February. This is because I managed to read not just the 3 titles that I've chosen for January's Required Reading challenge, but also because there were a couple of other books that I was able to finish. Yay for me! :)

A round-up of the January books, first.


So I got two books with 4-star ratings, and one with a perfect 5 rating. Looks like my choices did not disappoint! Very high ratings indeed. Let's see how the books for February will fare. :)




I don't really follow a specific theme for the books I choose (unlike Tina, who hosts this series), coming up with the titles on a whim. So, for this month, as in the previous ones, what I have lined up are from different genres and have different themes, as well.



Right now, I am still devouring Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, which I hope to finish by next week. I am also going to squeeze in The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, (whose last name I still don't know how to pronounce and) which is the book of the month for TFG's F2F discussion on the last weekend of February. Though I'm still not sure if I could make it, I would still want to read the book so I won't be left behind. :)

Psyched and can't wait to read these books! :)

LOL, I also don't know how to pronounce the last name. And I'm looking forward to your thoughts on The Marriage Plot (wishlist), Olive Kitteridge (to-read), and Cloud Atlas (read)

ANGUS: Oh yes, Olive Kitteridge is a Pulitzer winner nga pala. I'll read it second. Of course, The Marriage Plot is first. ;)

Yay, your post is up too! Seeing The Marriage Plot reminded me again of the Middlesex book I saw on Booksale for Php45 but did not buy. ARGH!

Good luck to our required readings! :)

Tina said...

Oh yay you're reading The Thief this month! :) Chachic would be thrilled. I hope you like it! :)

Monique said...

LYNAI: Yes, I saw Tina's post just this morning. :)

Do you still want to read Middlesex? I'll keep an eye out for a copy, should I visit the Book Sale branch nearby. ;)

TINA: I actually decided to read The Thief after reading your review of the last book in the series. Also, I'm giving in to curiosity. :)

MONIQUE: Yes, please. I have a hard time moving on because of that one "mistake" haha. Lesson learned, anyway. :)
