27 Unforgettable Books

Currently, I have been trying to get back to reading books. For many nowadays, reading could be a tedious task even when they’re not really doing anything. But for others like me, reading is a joy. That is why I have taken a new task to force myself to read more again and write book reviews. That said, I was reminded of several entries posted in Facebook quite a while back and thought I’d share them with you, starting with this…let’s call it, hmnnn…alright, “chain tag.”

This was posted way back in November 2010. I may have more stuff to add, but will get to that next time. Meanwhile, why don’t you go through my list and see if you can come up with your own? BTW. I am copy-pasting per word. Here we go…

The Color Purple – Alice Walker

Sometimes, I can be so absent-minded. That’s why I had forgotten that rather than just put a link to this review by making a new post two entries ago, I should’ve just hit “Reblog” from the review page itself. Anyway, I am reblogging now, and letting you know that you can write about any of the books from their list. That is, as long there are no reviews of your chosen books yet (words in blue if reviewed) or are not yet reserved for other reviewers who have expressed their intent to write about them (bolded words in black). Here’s the list: http://1001bookreviews.com/the-1001-book-list/

I am currently working on THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME.

Lemme know if you have constructive comments. there’s space for you down below 🙂 Oh and feel free to hit LIKE here and/or on the review page itself 🙂

The Color PurpleFourteen years old and Celie was already one big mess—pregnant, poor, under-educated. And black, lest we forget. How could Celie even think of leading her life differently? As her future husband said, “You black, you pore, you ugly, you a woman…, you nothing at all.”
