I told my book club friends that I have not finished a book in almost a week.  Why? Well, I still do this thing where I start one book and not finish it.  For the most part, it’s not because I’m no longer interested.  My attention deficit disorder is just active that much that I can be lured away from what I was doing to start another.  These books are piling on top of my bedside table.  It only means I will finish them when I feel like it.  I started some of them months ago.  So what are these lucky books?

The Phantom Tollbooth (Norton Juster) – I raved about it early on and I still believe it’s going to be one of my favorite young adult books ever.  I’m taking my sweet time with it.  100 pages to go.

Incendiary (Chris Cleave) – I started it one particularly tiring day over bites of my favorite tuna sashimi tartare.  It’s gripping but my ADD is stronger.  75 pages to go.

Tongue in Chic (Christina Dodd) – I bought it last week only.  I need this kind of book sometimes, you know?  I’m a woman deeply in touch with my unreciprocated emotions.  LOL.  175 pages to go.

Storm Front (Jim Butcher) – I finally bought it after a year of mental tug-of-war because it’s a paranormal series and I’m not that into it.  I bought it and started reading it yesterday amid distractions in form of small talk and phone calls.  I’m enjoying it.  71 pages to go.

The Fall (Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan) – I only shelled out 25 pesos to get this (more on how in my book review).  This one, I admit, I’m taking my sweet time with because I don’t want to read it without the third book out.  It’s slated for release by the end of the year.  I read its first book in a matter of days and it took months for this one to come out.  The waiting was unbearable, so I don’t want to do it again.  218 pages to go.

The Complete Horowitz Horror (Anthony Horowitz) – Ah, young adult horror.  I could gobble this up one in one sitting but I decided not to.  Instead, I made it my immediate bed time book.  Since I’m tired already when I go to bed, I can only manage to flip through about 10-15 pages before I doze off.  So there’s 60 pages to go.

There.  Which one do you think I’ll finish first?  I also do not have a clue.  I may add new ones to the pile, knowing me.

What books are on your nightstand lately?

  1. I enjoyed Storm Front too. 🙂 Quick urban fantasy read. I was hesitating to get it before because I have a completist tendency, and the Dresden Files series has about 12 books already. Good thing I have a friend I can borrow from.

    Right now I’m reading Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta and Noli Me Tangere. I thought reading Noli in time for Rizal’s birthday is just timely. 🙂
