I just singed up here. I am not much of a reader myself, but when it comes to illustrations, it make me interested in reading more. Maybe because I like to draw a lot, currently a student, finishing college.
My favorite genre is maybe mystery, suspense, thriller. those kinds usually, the author that made me interested in this genre is Dan Brown. I know most of his books stirred a lot of controversy, but I like the way he writes them, full of conspiracy, everything i love most about reading is there. you get mysterious and suspenseful characters very smart bad guys, sometimes you never thought THEY WERE the bad guys the mix of fun facts like the underground groups and etc. the places, specially the ones that has great art cultures
On the other side, I am really not all about mystery and suspense, I also happen to read Bob Ong's books and I find them very funny and related to my life. I think during the times that he's writing, maybe maraming nagcriticize na bakit ang pagsulat mo, the kind of criticism that gets someone down but he chose to continue, he's that kind of a person na hind mageexpect na magkaron ng recognition from his writings but he did. I thought that was great, and now he's books are well known to teens, college students, and young working people.
I think my joining here would help me get back to reading, kasi pagka nakakakita ako ng mga taong nagbabsa napapabasa din ako
although I am going to be honest with this community, I don't know if it's allowed here, but as I have mentioned before, I am currently a student, specifically currently taking my thesis, and I was wondering if some of the readers here would like to participate in my survey? if its not allowed its okay.
hi mtvsc! welcome to RP i'm not so sure if the admin have any prohibition about that survey you are mentioning but i will be glad to check that out. So good luck with your thesis In the mean time do check out the other section of this forum. I handle the children and young adult section. Hope you will get to have more time to visit us here again.
I'll do the survey later (nasa trabaho kasi ako ngaun, haha) I also read Bob Ong and a bit of Dan Brown (Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons). please feel free to join our discussions and maybe post topics of your own. glad to have you here
awww! thank you so much for the replies!, about my thesis yes imavee its about books but not the writing part, its a book ilustration thesis, it will focus on illustrationg scenes from this story i really liked. the survey actually gives hints on what story i am going to illustrate for.
laila, yes i will check out the section, do you have any book recommendation for me? im more one the mystery kind of spooky type, i liked coraline, dont know if that was a young adult book but it was mysterious and a little scarrryy, basically my type of a book. all i see now on the mainstream YA books are about vampires, love stories, magic, wizards, etc. glad to be here and thank you for taking my survey!!
oh and i forgot to mention, the survey is intended for readers who currently residing in the philippine preferably somewhere in metro manila. sorry about that.
