What I've Read So Far 2014 | Lifestyle: Books

What I've Read So Far 2014


So I have been into book reading for quiet some time. I started quitting "gaming" just to read. I have learned that reading makes you live maybe a hundred lives. It's very interesting. I get to live a life different from mine. It takes me to another world which I really enjoy... Hey, I'm a certified dreamer. So I really take pleasure in such.

What do I read? I mix fictions and self-help. I haven't tried biographies but I have been enjoying great authors nowadays. 

So here's my list of books from JANUARY to APRIL and I will surely update you from time to time of what I have already read per month. How's that sound? I'll even share my current purchase! (ooh, I'm already excited!)

What I've Read So Far 2014 | Lifestyle: Books

Based on my 2014 Reading Challenge by Goodreads, up to date I have already read 13 books out of my goal of 25. Not bad. I would like to share to you my first set of books.



1. To Know You More | Andy Park

To Know You More | Andy ParkVery helpful for all worship leaders and aspiring worship leaders and song writers. Music is the best way to show your passion and your love for God. A very good read, very detailed and informative. There are a lot of learnings in the technical, spiritual and relational aspect of worship leading.

MUST READ!

2. Wicked | Gregory Maguire

Wicked | Gregory MaguireRead this one because of the musical! Made sure to read it before watching the play. And wow, was it really nice! Brilliantly inventive, Wicked offers us a radical new evaluation of one of the most feared and hated characters in all of literature: the much maligned Wicked Witch of the West who, as Maguire tells us, wasn’t nearly as Wicked as we imagined.

GOOD ENOUGH

3. In The Eye Of The Storm | Max Lucado

In The Eye Of The Storm | Max LucadoRead this while we traveled to Singapore. A good read. It lets you know how God really feels. Lucado made sure you know that GOD knows how you feel when you go through tough times.. when you go through the eye of a storm.

NICE READ!
MY RATING: 3/5

4. If I Stay | Gayle Forman (If I Stay #1)

If I Stay | Gayle Forman (If I Stay #1)I think this is my first young adult series. A loving story between two musicians. I enjoyed the fact that it's all about life after "death". Mia went through all struggles not being with her "body". Now that's something, will she stay?

NICE READ!
MY RATING: 3/5
GOODREADS Ave. Rating: 3.98

5. Where She Went | Gayle Forman (If I Stay #2)

Where She Went | Gayle Forman (If I Stay #2)A sequel to her first book, written in the point of view of Adam. A sweet truth about his love for the young and successful Mia. Given that they were both in the music industry, this book is full of musical artistry. Songs written by the lover to his beloved. So what's the truth after all? Will they still have their happy ending? 

NICE READ!

6. Tuesdays With morrie | Mitch Albom

Tuesdays With morrie | Mitch AlbomFirst time to read this, and was really inspired by it... ALL THROUGH OUT. It's somewhat a biography of Morrie Schwartz, Mitch's college proffesor. It's a "Tuesday" class about life of which Mitch learned a lot and so did I.

MUST READ!

7. The Alchemist | Paulo Coelho

The Alchemist | Paulo CoelhoA great novel about DESTINY. A man traveling to find his treasure. That the universe conspires to that one thing that he would want to have. His great dream. All the hardships are always worth it as long as you run towards your destiny.

MUST READ!
