...dexter by design - jeff lindsay... A great read for Dexter fans...


Hi memnoch26, hmmm, I keep hearing about this Dexter series, including a TV series based on the book, now i'm wondering what it's all about... time to get my hands on a copy and find out! :)



Hello wanda.. Its about a psycho who was brought up to kill only criminals who deserve it... Kinda vigilante... The way it was written is very entertaining.... I am following the tv series as well but the story deviated from the books... But i still like the tv series as i consider it as additional stories for dexter.... You should try it...

Blue Angel, White Shadow - by Charlson Ong
A murder mystery set in our very own Binondo, a delightful deep dive into a complex web of Filipino-Chinese characters with dark pasts, intertwined with each other.

Last of the Jedi.

Story takes off a few months after StarWars Revenge of the Sith. A former padawan who left the jedi several years ago tried to start a rebellion and searched for other surviving jedi.

This is good for star wars fans who just cant get enough of the movies.

hello hirer,

good day.

thats exactly what I said 1 or 2 years ago... there are indeed a lot of starwars book out there...

but what i did was, I followed anakin skywalkers saga... i started with the prequel trilogy (eps 1 to 3

I bought the books about 1 or 2 years ago.. could’t remember exactly..

And then I branch out to stories I thought interesting and with Anakin as the main character... usually, i read the prequel and sequel books of the 3 movies...

Check these sites:
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_books

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Star_Wars_books

i can give you a book reading list guide if you are interested in anakin...

if you want an unsolicited advice, follow a character and slowly you will find yourself inside deep in a galaxy far far away...

may the force be with you !!!

Hmmm, thats a good list - kind of like organizes everything so it makes sense.
Yes, following a character does seem like an interesting way to go.

Hey wanda,

In this arabian night version, did it show a lot of s_x content? Am not quite happy with what i read previously.

After reading, i watched the mini series and a documentary. I learned what i read was quite edited for general readers. Not that i wanted to read about the s_x part. But i really want to read about the culture and history as well.

Am looking for a better or complete version.

I will read your blog later.
