Finch
Jeff VanderMeer
Truth?  Sure, I can handle the truth.  I wanted to know the truth, but it had been very hard to find.  There was betrayal after betrayal; faction after faction.  Who's on the good side?  Who's on the bad side?

This novel was amazing.  I knew it was going to be a stellar read from chapter one.  (Warning:  some spoilers!)

Melanie Quilla and Eloisa Marie Hernandez

Finally, natapos ko na din basahin ang “Only Pure Hearts Can Break The Spell”- ang unang aklat ng ating kapatid na Melay at Eloi.

Itinabi ko muna pansamantala ang halos 20 new titles (Filipino) na nabili ko sa Manila International Book Fair, including my signed copy of Axel Pinpin’s “Tugmaang Matatabil...”, Ricky Lee’s “Si Tatang at ang Himala...”, pre-signed copy ng “Desaparesidos” ni Lualhati Baustista at ang “The passion of Jovita Fuentes” (1st prize Palanca full length play) ni Peter S. Nery.
