Friday Finds: A Bottle of Storm Clouds

FRIDAY FINDS is a weekly meme hosted over at Should Be Reading.  It showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (They aren’t necessarily books you purchased).

My first book purchase of the year is A Bottle of Storm Clouds by Eliza Victoria.  I long wanted to buy this because it’s by a Filipino author and it is speculative fiction — a genre I’m slowly warming up to.

Award-winning author Eliza Victoria mixes magic with the mundane in this special concoction of 16 short stories. A girl meets a young man with the legs of a chicken. A boy is employed by a goddess running a pawnshop. A group of teenagers are trapped in an enchanted forest for 900 days. A man finds himself in an MRT station beyond Taft, a station that was not supposed to exist. A student claims to have seen the last few digits of pi. Someone’s sister gets abducted by mermaids.

Sounds very interesting, right?  Since I plan to read more local works this year, I will definitely read this soon.  I also promised to buy only 12 books this year, so with one purchase down, 11 to go! I hope I can make it. 🙂
