It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #10

Posts have somewhat become "sporadic" on my blog lately and I surely hate the sound of it. I don't like it when other things in life kind of snatch the time away from me, from doing the things that I truly love. Come to think of it, I wonder why someone can't just pay me for just reading and doing things that are more fun?? *lol*

In the past couple of weeks, I've managed to reviewed couple of books:
(1) Unwind by Neal Shusterman: Saying that this book is an “enjoyable” read would definitely be a lie but the messages and knowledge that was cramped into these 352 pages really make everything worthwhile. Written by an author with such a deviant imagination, Unwind is definitely a phenomenal, thought-provoking book that should not be missed. Such an incredible, powerful read that will stay with you for a very long time.

(2) Seers of Light by Jennifer DeLucy: Enchanting and utterly refreshing, Seers of Light is indeed a must read especially to those who love paranormal romance. I don't think I've come across book such as this one before. Definitely an original.

(3) City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare: As an excellent author, Cassandra Clare managed to retain the success of City of Bones into this book and more. Intense. Poweful. Intriguing. Full with complicated love triangle of some sort, endless humour and non-stop action. Definitely the kind of book that will keep any readers from sleeping at night until they reach its very last page. Highly, highly, highly recommended.

(4) Honest Illusions by Nora Roberts: With its beautiful, lyrical prose, Honest Illusions is a meaningful and beautiful book with its own capability to make you laugh, cry and sigh at one time or another. This is the kind of book that will  captivate and pull you in before you realise it.

Other than that, I'm also hosting my VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY, courtesy of CSN Stores. So, to whomever who are interested to win $30 CSN Stores gift certificate, all you have to do is filled out the form in this page. The contest will run until 17th July and is open to residents of US and Canada only.

And last but not least, I've also made it through the final round in a cover re-make contest held by Tynga! I made the cover of Crescendo as featured below. So head over to her site and vote for the cover you think deserve to win the contest =)

Number for this cover: #7

So, that's about all that happen in this blog since the last couple of weeks. I'm hoping that I could post  and read more in July than I did in this month. Wishing everyone a pleasant start of the week. And thank you for stopping by!


  1. I'm also hoping to read and post more in July and I second your comment about getting paid to just read and do fun stuff LOL
    You read some wonderful books, I picked up Honest Illusions thanks to your glowing review and I think I might keep an eye out for Seers of Light

    Hope you find some more time to do the things you love.
    PS Love the cover you re-designed, I'm heading over to vote :-)

  2. Hey you!

    Sporadic??I giggled when I read that. It's not that bad actually since I know you are a very 'busy' person.LOL. and I know you read a lot than that ;p

  3. You read some great books since you posted last. I love Nora Roberts. I am also a fan of YA paranormals and plan to add Seers of Light to my wishlist. Have a great week!

  4. I'll have to check out Unwind! A few years ago I read a book by Shusterman and didn't really like it, but this book sounds so much better.

  5. We all have weeks like that! :) Anyway, you asked me about the Fablehaven series on my Monday post and I would highly recommend them, even though they really are MG type books. Both my mom and I LOVE them and they're just really awesome fantasies.

    Have another great reading/blogging week!

  6. Sigh, it would be so great to get paid to just read and blog.

    Congrats on moving to the next round in the Crescendo cover contest! That's a really great cover.

  7. Congrats on the cover art! I'll definitely be over to cast my vote! ;)

    I'm so so glad you loved City of Ashes, I just love Clare's writing, so fun.

    Hopefully this week going forward will be better for you and you will get to spend more time doing the things you love! Have a fabulous reading week!

  8. I'm having the same time snatching problem ;)

  9. I have yet to read the "City Of" books but want to!!! Thanks for the thoughts on them! :) Oh and glad to have you back at the Monday meme! :D
