Blog Challenge Day 2
Second day of the Blog Challenge.
Topic : Top 5 Favorite Books You’ve Read for School
1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
I started reading Harry Potter when I was in high school and I finished reading books
1 to 4 in a week. :))
My parents were forced to ban me from reading books
because I became a total bookworm and I was neglecting my studies :))
But they had to relent when I needed to write a book report :p
kudos to these books that turned me into a bookworm.
2. Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief
I had to read this book for a report in my Eleclit class back in college.
I liked it so much that I asked my prof for the copies
of the rest of the books in the series.
I also read the spinoff, The Lost Hero and a new series, The Red Pyramid.
This book is good for when you just want to read about
something entertaining and action packed.
Rick Riordan’s way of writing is concise and witty.
I love how he can incorporate comedy into the serious actions
and drama scenarios without deviating from the story line.
3. Noli Me Tangere
Yes, I know. Call me nerdy but I love this book.
Back in HS, my classmates dread the subject period dedicated for this book. :))
But I love the story, not so much for it’s nationalism
but because it is both interesting and entertaining.
4. El Filibusterismo
This is one rank lower because of the ending.
I hate unhappy endings. 😐
5. Blink by: Malcolm Gladwell
I had to read this book for our Orgwrit class in college
and it’s quite entertaining and very educational.
It’s about how instinct, intuition and first impression
can trump logic at certain instances.
It’s a must read! 🙂
