You can click on the pictures to find the books on Goodreads. Little Bee was actually a random discovery while I was surfing around the Goodreads giveaway section. This novel sounds really interesting as it explores a new friendship between an illegal Nigerian refugee and a widow from suburban London. I’m always down for an interesting historical fiction too! Man’s Search for Meaning is Viktor Frankl’s memoir where he unveils his famous theory, logotherapy. This book also challenges Freud’s belief that pleasure is what drives us by exploring a new path, the one where things meaningful to one is what drives the person. Must. Read! Chew is actually a comic series about a detective who’s Cibopathic, whic means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. As you can imagine, this gives us billions of crazy ideas and that’s probably what this comic has to offer! 😀 Deathless is probably one of the coolest books I’ve discovered this month. It’s a fantasy novel, but also historical fiction. That’s just magical! This book merits to have its blurb read, so…go check it out and come back! 😛 Now, after reading one of Erik Larson’s novel I can’t go a month without discovering another non-fiction written like a fiction novel about a killer. The Monster of Florence popped up among the books I’ve found! Absolutely intriguing!!

    Lmao!! Trang’s exclamations in the Bookidote section cracks me up. I love the cover Postal and am curious about it. I didn’t know it was about criminals. For some reason, I assumed it was a horror comic.

    Haha! Looks like you guys had a delightful month. I am still yet to see Superman/Batman D: I also need to watch the Clockwork Orange. Am definitely going to see that soon. Are you guys going to go see Suicide Squad? I am literally counting down the days until that comes out T_T

      You have to watch Batman vs. Superman as soon as you get the chance! Forget about the critics and experience the movie for yourself. Personally, I adored the movie! 😛 Hope you get to enjoy Clockwork Orange like we did too. It’s different from the book, but a very GOOD different!

      As for Suicide Squad… You have no idea how pumped we are for it!! I just can’t wait to see the Leto’s acting and what kind of storyline they’re going to give us! (AND MORE BATMAN!!)
