    Patricia

    Majority of my friends call me Trish, I guess you could call me that too. I'm a transcriptions editor with a really messed up body clock and never ending affinity for films, food and written words. I like street art, sweets, neutrals and monochromes, sushi, window seats, golf carts and lazy weekends.

    Some of the things that completely preoccupy me are my fixation with the now defunct The Civil Wars and their beautiful art of sadness, Oh Sehun, sleeping, CSS and HTML, @iameden, and those damn hypnotizing Tasty videos. Top country in my travel bucketlist? Iceland. But the one that will always have my heart? Hong Kong.

    Shelf Life

    I admit that I'm not much of a reader when I was young. The first novel I was able to finish was Sidney Sheldon's The Naked Face. I was so into the suspense/mystery theme of that booked, it got me hooked on reading books ever since. I began reading classics since then as well. I also have a love-hate relationship with books turned into movies especially if I've read the book first.

    I try to read as much possible but of course, sometimes things just get too hectic. And once in a while, when I visit bookstores (Booksale FTW), I buy as much books as I can. I like stocking up on books so I could read something new whenever I want to.

    Thanks to technology, e-books are also widely available and I'm able to read books that aren't available locally. Nothing beats holding a real book, reading it on a weekend while sipping your favorite drink and just getting lost in your imagination but e-books suffice sometimes. It's a quick fix.

    Lately, I've had a lot of books I started reading but it took quite a while before I get to finish. Here's a list of books I'm currently reading and some books that I've acquired a copy for future reading:

    Currently Reading:
    The View from Saturday by E.L. Konigsburg. I actually don't have the physical book nor an e-book copy of this, just a pdf file I saw floating around the Internet. I stumbled upon an Instagram photo of this book and most of the comments said this is a great book so it got me really interested.

    Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I've seen the movie a couple of years back and it broke my heart. It was such a sad movie. I never really knew that it was based from a book until I started Google-ing about the movie. I wanted to read the book because I really believe that the book is always better than the movie version of it.

    The Infernals by John Connolly. I came across a quote from the book on Facebook that really spoke to me. I downloaded a copy of the e-book immediately. Though this is classified as a Young Adult novel, I have high expectations with this book. I just started reading it and I really do hope it doesn't disappoint.


    Next in line:
    Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger | The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera | Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

    Have you read any of these books? What do you think? Do you have any other book suggestions? :)
