January Good Reads!

After taking a good dekko at some lists of good reads, this 2013, I am planning on reading some too. After losing my will to read for four months last year, I am hoping that this time i’ll be able to finish good books. And I challenge myself for finishing four books in one month.

I saw lots of good books released last two months in 2012, and this year. It’s a treat! it’s a good come back for me and starting on the good ones. Some were in motion picture but I don’t want to watch them, I want to read them. ALL.

So in such cases here are the books, that I challenged myself to finish this month. Only.

'It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife'The opening of Jane Austen's ever-popular novel sets the tone of her sparkling comedy of manners and morals.There are five daughters in the Bennet family and marriage is the only career open to them. There is naturally much excitement when two young men of good fortune move into the district. But before there can be a happy ending, the hero must conquer his overwhelming pride and Elizabeth, the spirited heroine, her prejudices against him. Only by taking the route to self-knowledge can they reach a mature understanding of each other and find lasting contentment

I started reading Pride and Prejudice the other day, but today, I haven’t touch yet the book, for I was out yesterday and I got lots of things to do. And when I’m done, I’m hoping I could publish a good review about it in goodreads.

This’ll be my first time to read some sort of a mysterious type of book. This one caught my eyes in the bookstore, and the summary intrigued me. Hopefully, I will have the good and open time to finish this in no time.

Seventeen-year-old Louisa Cosgrove longs to break free from her respectable life as a Victorian doctor's daughter. But her dreams become a nightmare when Louisa is sent to Wildthorn Hall: labeled a lunatic, deprived of her liberty and even her real name. As she unravels the betrayals that led to her incarceration, she realizes there are many kinds of prison. She must be honest with herself - and others - in order to be set free. And love may be the key...

This one’s another mystery to me, for the summary just caught my attention. So this thing is added on my list to read for this month.

Charlie is a freshman. And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mix-tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can't stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up

While this one caught me in the cinema. No, I didn’t see the movie, but it’s interesting. I saw the book, in the bookstore and read the summary, and it really does sound wonderful. I haven’t purchased the book yet, but one of these days, i’ll manage to have one and start to read.

So, that’s it! that’s my list for this month, and i’ll be searching for more good reads over the month for February, and luckily I already have listed some, but there are more books that’ll be release, so I have to watch for that. I know a store that gives ‘humongous’ discount, and that’s one more thing I have to watch for, ‘coz they might release books that I wanna read in an ‘OFF’ price, then I wouldn’t have to spend lots of money in other stores.

And when I got my money, I should know by then what to grab.
