When I see it in my room, I just want to race through all the rest, cause I want this savored.
Thanks to my sister for this one.
To start my string of year-enders (and God knows I am late for these ones), let's start off the end of 2011 with my year in covers. I bring you the books I've loved, learned a lot from all read, half-understood and will always treasure from this year. Enjoy.
|So happy I bought this.|
You don't die enough to cry --- Jack Kerouac
|Its preface's first few sentences will already cling to you.|
It's only been hours under my possession. c/o Ms. Chere, my boss
|It was always the becoming he dreamed of, never the being |
--- F. Scott Fitzgerald
Not the cover I have, but this one is the next best thing.
Good-looking too. This one is thanks to Tj.
|This has set the bar for me when it comes to writing.|
And it's because of this that I became a solid fan of anthologies, superb job.
|First book I ever purchased for 2011.|
From the history of the style and the stories behind it, to Dean, Brando and even Eminem...
Everything you need to know about Rebel Style.
|By my bed all the time. Helps a lot.|
Also freaks you out a lot. hahaha.
|So far, so good. Le Carre's characters are well-established, which I like a lot.|
Plus, the trailer looks great. Tom Hardy, I know your secret... hahah
Another Ms. Chere-sponsored book (those GCs I love so much)
|You could never imagine how happy I was to unwrap this, thanks to my sister.|
|Bought this for my sister...|
And I got hooked. Easy to read, pretty famous (for lots of obvious reasons),
but exciting. It reminded me of HP's Goblet of Fire, but they're different books still and style
Also c/o Ms. Chere
|First page was good...I've got, well, probably around 600 plus to go?|
I might be wrong, but this is a real thick read.
Great measure for your literary patience.
This also has got to be one of the most talked-about books this year
|It's a shame that I never get to finally finishing this book.|
A classic, obviously deserves a lot of time (from me at least).
The cover, is the most stylish I've seen. A Tj book again
|Another Fitzgerald great. It's a short story, you could read it for a day max.|
And it sticks to you...Especially the ending...
It's a Fitzgerald thing, having a haunting ending.
|This year's hardest read for me.|
Someday I'll get my head around you.
|Finkel's book has given me a good reason|
to fear for my dear life had I been a journalist.
Which pretty much translates to an exciting and curious story
