The Geeky Adventures of a Bookish Girl

December and January Awesome Book Finds

PicMonkey Collage

I wasn’t so keen on coming into thrift bookstores after my largely accumulated cheap finds during the months of October and November, so my raves for today may have dwindled extravagantly. So far, I only have two books to bring up:

1. Mga Agos Sa Disyerto  by Efren R. Abueg, Dominador B. Mirasol, Rogelio L. Ordoñez, Edgardo M. Reyes, and Rogelio R. Sikat; 4th edition paperback published by C & E Publishing Inc. (first published in 1964 by Solar Publishing); 326 pages; for only 248php on National Book Store.

 It was voted as the first book to be discussed for the first quarter of 2013 by the Goodreads group Pinoy Reads Pinoy Books. This group is for Filipinos who patronize our very own books, either written in the Filipino language, other Filipino dialects, locally published English books, and so on, as long as it has a “Filipino taste” into it.

This book contains a series of short stories that largely portrays the Filipino community back in the early ‘60s. Most of all, this book harbors the earlier problems of the Philippines—from the twisted political ways, to greedy foreign capitalists, and personal afflictions of the Filipinos that still ensue today.

2. Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts; published in 2011 by Simon & Schuster Books; hardbound; 329 pages; for only 60php on Booksale.

 It is a dystopian tale that revolves around a myriad of characters in an escape route after a tremendous earthquake that unleashed evils of unspeakable horror and mysterious chaos over the land. A gripping and fast-paced novel that will surely bring horrors and a thrilling sensation to fans of dystopian YA lit.

 

There you go! Another awesome addition to my sweeping blanket of amazing books. 🙂
