Audio Books is Love!

Last week, I was re-reading If I Stay because it was being shown on HBO. After I finished the book, I was looking for my copy of Where She Went but couldn't find it.  So I downloaded a copy, but it was in mp3 format.  I was about to delete it, but changed my mind.  On my way home from work, I played it while I was on the bus and plugged myself in! And I loved it! So that was how i discovered audio books.

So, I again looked for audio books but was only able to download m4b formats. So I downloaded this app from Google Play that plays that format and so, I am rereading, er, being read the Game of Thrones! So yeah, audio books is love!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Despite my busy schedule, I still manage to squeeze in a few books over the last few months. I started and finished this book yesterday, since it was a relatively easy read and now, I am looking for the sequel. 

I really should stop reading YA books since I cannot relate anymore, hahaha but this one is such an easy read. I thought this was a book of horror, but was pleasantly surprised that I was not as afraid (see, I am old!).  A good read, all in all.

You can find the plot here

I Hate to Read!

I have a confession to make. I love to read, I really do.  But I read for pleasure and leisure and not for learning.  And it is a problem for me now because I am taking up a Research subject and part of my thesis requirement is Review of Related Literature: 10 books, 10 journals, 10 studies and 10 something else, for a total of 40 reading materials! And I hate it! And it was due last Saturday which I missed because of travel for work, and now I am cramming. And no, I haven't even started reading! Yeah, I am resisting because I do not like to read for this! Ugh! Talk about irony.

If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman

So I have a copy of the movie If I Stay, but since they always disappoint me big-time, I tried looking for the book first. And boy, was I surprised! It was very well-written, and so very touching.  I couldn't put down the book, even during my MBA class.  I was crying in some parts, thankfully not during class.  And I felt so bereft when I finished the book.
Then while I was waiting for my next class, I saw Where She Went and started reading.  I didn't know that it was a sequel, and when I read it, I felt that same tug in my heart for Mia and Adam. Oh my God, I love these books and I might just read it again. 
Sorry, that really is not much of a review, but hey, I am gushing here so it must be good. And the movie? It was okay, but I loved the book maybe 10x more.
