I've learned to like vampire novels kasi gusto ko yung mga protagonist lalo na kung babae, like Buffy. Hahaha! Pero nung high school pa ako nun.

Sa ngayon, wala pa naman akong nababasa na na-disappoint ako. So far, it's twilight.

Kaya sana magkaroon tayo ng challenge or activity dito sa forum like "Book of the Month" then basahin natin and discuss kung ano gusto or dislikes about it.


Hi malot, yeah parang lagi siya talagang damsel in distress, feeling ko pang teenage girls lang talaga yung novel, who are fantasacizing of a hero who can stay awake by their side while they sleep through the night :) no offense ulit sa mga twilight fans! Hahhaa. Uy, magandang idea yang book of the month na yan, nakita ko nga pinost mo sa suggestions, im sure gagawin yan ng admin. Pero magpopost kaya mga members kung may book of the month kasi dapat matapos natin yung book before the end of the month diba?

Malot1182, by the way, since you mentioned buffy, i attended the book launch of trese 4 kanina, if youre into phil spec fic, trese is like a Pinoy Buffy. I havent read the series but everyone has been telling me how good it is. It must be bec the launch was jampacked kanina, maybe 70-100 people? Ive been to 3-4 other book launches and this is by far the most attended :D

Wow. Talaga??? Sure sige I'll check it out. Salamat sa info wanda. :)

Siguro basahin ko yan for November para tamang-tama. hahaha

Regarding sa Book of the Month, siguro piliin lang yung mga nasa 300 pages na libro or less. Pero bahala na si admin dun kung ano ang criteria for the book.

Gusto ko rin sana kasi ma-challenge at magbasa ng out of my genre/comfort zone. What do you think wanda?

Wow, Twilight is by far everyone's choice. Honestly, I liked Twilight well enough - although I wanted to kill Isabella Marie Swan right off the bat (still do). Who said that she was brave, selfless and whatnot? What? I also want to rewrite most of the material... and when Renesmee came into the picture. *shuts down*

On the other hand, I also want to thank it since it got rid of my aversion from vampire books. And after reading it, despite not going gaga, it showed me that there's more to vampire books than creepy vampires seducing willing females. Hello Vamps, Chicagoland Vampires and Blue Bloods. But no, Twilight is not the worst book I've ever read... there is something but I can't quite remember since I tend to forget unpleasant things.

So instead I'll share the most recent, worst book I've read which is Charming by Susie Kaye Lopez. I was like WT~

I can't say Twilight since I haven't read it. But if I did, I would probably say that would be the one. As far as one that I have actually read, there's this one book I've read a long time ago, Plainsong. I forgot the author. That's probably the worst. For all those who were disillusioned with the vampires of Twilight, try nyo Vampire books ni Anne Rice. I'm not a vampire fan but I've read Interview with a Vampire and Queen of the Damned. Her vampires make the vampires of Twilight like wimpy albino tryouts for a boy band. Rice's vampires are really old and they act like it.

hahaha...I agree with the others. I also don't like the Twilight saga and I regret buying it. The thickness of the book decieved me. Kasi akala ko makapal sya, maganda ng storya. And I don't like Bella, too damsel in distress and yun pa naman yung hate ko na female characters. NO offense din sa mga Twilight fans.

For Filipino books, I never liked Ibong Adarna. It was a school requirement and I didn't even finish reading it. NO wonder I got a low grade in the book report. Can't understand a bit of it.

I agree with twilight. Sorry din sa fans of the book :D but I really found it hard to finish. I even tried watching the movie in hopes of changing my mind, but I ended up sleeping on it. :D
