WWWoW – I Am Reading YA

Sup guys. After posting entirely nothing these past days, I’m back with a bunch of novels that needs to be reviewed, ranted, pondered and cried about.

What are you currently reading?

The premise of Traveler is anything I could ever hope for. Parallel words, metafiction, time loops and people dying—yup, sounds like my cup of tea—and yet the author manages to make these wonderful elements boring. It still is interesting and I hope it picks up its wits halfway.


Traveler by L.E. Delano

Jessa has spent her life dreaming of other worlds and writing down stories more interesting than her own, until the day her favorite character, Finn, suddenly shows up and invites her out for coffee. After the requisite nervous breakdown, Jessa learns that she and Finn are Travelers, born with the ability to slide through reflections and dreams into alternate realities. But it’s not all steampunk pirates and fantasy lifestyles—Jessa is dying over and over again, in every reality, and Finn is determined that this time, he’s going to stop it… This Jessa is going to live.

What did you recently finished reading?

Hah. I’ve read quite a lot of books the past months thanks to my long commute to work and my handy phone. I finished most Rick Riordan’s novels whilst sitting inside a noisy jeepney with its noisy passengers. The Knife of Never Letting Go was read between trips to home and to whatever place I feel like going, mostly by bus where the aircon is either too cold or too warm.

And hey, I’m finally reading YA books. I’ve always been a bit snobby to the genre but inevitably end up reading them. This year was a quite a good year for me in YA because I discovered a few beauties I loved and a few terrible ones that I still enjoyed anyway (glances at Ten and Scythe).

Waiting on Wednesdays

Okay. I decided to put WWW and WOW together since I couldn’t follow-up with the books that I intend to read. Something always comes up that deems far more important to read, so, instead, I’ll post here the books I want to read.

Hah. I never thought I’d be so pumped up on a book that I disliked and liked so much. Look at that cover. Look at that cover.


A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit-and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords-and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all. (Goodreads)


WWW – Psycopaths, a 5-year Old with Green Hair, and a Doctor To Pity

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?

Ana Satsujin (Peephole) by Rahson

The teenage lives of an unstable boy and his box-cutter murderer of a girlfriend as they kill men in their apartments.

Sometimes I question my tastes too.

What I like about Ana Satsujin is the chemistry of its characters and how they carry the story in all sorts of twists and turns. Their philosophical babbles are also interesting to read, ridiculous they are at times.

Berserk by Miura Kentarou

Guts, accompanied by a naked elf, travels across kingdoms and lands seeking vengeance against the man that gave him a tattoo.

Shakespeare would have cried manly tears reading this manga.

What did recently finished reading?

Yotsuba to!

Yotsuba&! by Kiyohiko Azuma

A five-year old gets away with murder and damaging properties because she is five years old.

One of my top picks this year. Check out my review of Yotsuba&! here.

I was just kidding at the murder part. No one gets killed here. I swear.


What will you read next?


Monster by Naoki Urasawa

A doctor saves a boy’s life and loses everything he has. The boy later becomes a murderer. Horrible.

It’s been on my my TBR list for a decade and I still haven’t gotten around finishing it. I’ve read a few chapters and loved the grim premise and intense story. I should really start reading it again.
