Feburary 4th, 2015: This is the book I am currently reading: “1Q84” by Haruki Murakami
I decided to read this book because of the author, Haruki Murakami. I got recommended at first by my friend to read “Norwegian Woods” which was written by him as well and I really liked it. Therefore, I was looking for other books written by him and I saw this one at the public library. At first I was intimidated since it was huge (for me) and I never read a thick book before. However, I decided to check it out anyway and I must said I love it right now. Since it switches back from two perspectives making it very interesting, and within the two perspectives it ties it in which each other. It also is a 3 books in one, so it’s kind of cool to find out what happens next. I think this is going to take a while for me to finish because it’s thick and I am kind of lazy when it comes to reading. However, I will give it my best trying to finish it. (◠﹏◠✿)

Received “The Count of Monte Cristo” by Alexandre Dumas (abridged)
So far it’s pretty interesting. I think this is the first school book that I actually like. The whole revenge and love is really interesting. It’s a must read even though this came from school haha.

I am still reading this book because I have been focusing on “Monte Cristo” the last month. Luckily I am on the last “book” and it got really intense because Tengo and Aomame finally realize they need each other. It’s so sad how they are so close but yet so far 😦

Recently I started “Animal Farm with connections” and honesty it’s quite boring if you learned about the Russian Revolution. It’s basically reading the Russian Revolution, but the people are disguised as animals. It’s easy to read and has some drawings in it.

Finally finished this book!!! I would definitely recommend to people who are into romance, psychology, and mystery. I’m not much of a reader, but I love Haruki Murakami style of writing and perspective on people. This is my first time finishing a thick book. I am not going to lie that some parts might have been kind of boring since it is a thick book. However, I love the ending. It was perfect, I love books that have a good ending because then you can remember that it was a good book and it was worth reading. My goal is that someday I will read all of Haruki Murakami’s books in the future.

At the same time I finish “All Quiet On the Western Front” by Erich Maria Remarque. In the beginning I didn’t really like the book since I already learning about WWI in my history class, so I thought that I was just going to read about it again. However, that was not the case for this book. This is more about experience during war and most importantly friendship. I really liked this book because of that. The author explained it very well on how friends can mean so much even though they might die at any given moment, especially in war. The ending was expected and just when I thought I finish the book there was another page where it told how Paul died… Very good book even though I had to read it for school. 😀

Kind of excited to read this book kind of not because I have learned so much about the holocaust in school that I am kind of tired of it. It also makes me really question about “God.” It seems like an easy book to read so far and how his family helped him translate his story so that it still preserves the meaning of the book.
Update: June 4th, 2015
I finish the book! I think this was my second favorite book in the school year. (Monte Cristo was my favorite) This sucked me right in it and I loved actually reading this book. However, the ending kind of sucked and I felt like it ended too soon. Since I already learned about the Holocaust and saw the camps it was easier for me to imagine everything that the book tried to tell us. Great book. 😀
