i like her... but some might say the book talks about feminism. but i rather see her as a women/mother and she is the mc.


anyhow its only less than rm50 for the book now and less than 350 pages.. don't like then won't cost u much.

if don't like then try name of the wind

read it. i find it pleasantly relaxing, addictive and sad in a way.
And i like it because most greek mythology has always been all about men, men and more men, so it's very refreshing to actually read it from a women's pov. Don't expect something epic or breath-taking. But it was nice and enthralling enough that i finished the book in one go.

I'm currently reading Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

Super slow start, but now I wish i could have more time to indulge in it once you get past all the introductory plots

The Hunt For Red October by Tom Clancy

My first Tom Clancy, very technical and Tom Clancy does not shortchange when it comes to facts in fictitious writing, somewhat enjoyable because it is a lot realistic but my mind wanders off not wanting to understand naval jargons and abbreviations.

Might go for another Tom Clancy but Iā€™m not hopeful of enjoying it in future.

Forget about this Priory of the Orange Tree. At the end of it I find myself regretting all the time I have wasted in this trash book. xD

Finished Scarlet, the 2nd book in the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I don't know why it took me 7 years to finally read this series and it pains me so much to realize all the times I could've spent reading this badass story instead of the trashy ones.
