Book Report: April 2016

Book Report: April 2016

Before I announce the winner of my birthday giveaway (yes, there are participants), let me just get the monthly report out of the way.

Books Finished:

  • Remainder by Tom McCarthy – 3 out of 5 stars. Will try my best to review it after I sort out my life.

Currently Reading:

  • Nothing yet. Will probably start reading our book of the month later, The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness. I don’t know what it is about.

TFG Book Bingo Progress:

So that’s only two squares since January. Gaaah, what am I doing? To be fair, I had gone through an intense ordeal, one that involves real life shit that I hope no one among you will experience. But that’s over now, I guess. I really shouldn’t be talking about it, so let’s just talk about bingo squares?

Here are the entries:

  • Pat recommended Nobody’s Perfect by Anthony Lane (About movies) and Juliet Naked by Nick Hornby (About music).
  • Tin recommended Les Liasons Dangereuses by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos (Erotic fiction), The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Attwood (Speculative fiction), The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer (Set during a holiday), The Wes Anderson Collection by Matt Zoller Seitz (About movies), and Bel Canto by Ann Patchett (About music).

Thank you, Pat and Tin, for participating and for the birthday greetings. And now, it’s decision-making time. By default, Tin wins! Well, she followed the instructions. I asked for recommendations for five categories, right? But putting technicalities aside, I like the books she recommended. In fact, I’ve already added The Handmaid’s Tale and Bel Canto in my bingo shortlist before she even recommended them, which could mean she kind of understands the books that I like. And I love Cruel Intentions so I might as well pick its source novel.

Congrats, Tin! I think you know what to do. :)



  1. Yaaaaay! Hahahahaha! Will message you!

    Quick question:Would you consider David Mitchell’s The Bone Clocks under Experimental?

    Thanks Angus!


  2. Oh I hope you enjoy Atwood! Handmaid was the first of hers I read and then now living in Boston where it’s based was even more interesting to reread it.
