A while ago, I went to SM with my cousin to buy some plastic cover for my books. Of course, as I enter any bookstore, it’s a must to check out the book stands. And what do you know! I found these three babies which I cannot just ignore. Good thing I brought my money with me. And so, impulsive as I am, I bought them:
- The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore
—This is the sequel to I Am Number Four by an anonymous author. I enjoyed the first book for it is a well-written sci-fi novel. The Power of Six follows the adventures of Number Four and Number Six as they race to find the other four aliens of their kind in order to save the earth.
- Before Ever After by Samantha Sotto
—This book was recommended to me by my aunt. She said that she can’t put it down when she started reading it. I was intrigued so I read the summary. It’s about a newly widowed woman who meets a young man which is supposed to be the grandson of his 34-year old late husband. The story goes as this young man tells her that her husband is still alive. I am looking forward to reading this since the author is a Filipino.
- The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordono
—I have been looking for this book for sometime now. It’s a story about a mathematically gifted guy and a girl who both are misfits but comfort in each other. I read Cinderellainrubbershoes’ review and I wanted to read the book even more. So I did not think twice and bought it right away when I saw it a while ago.
