books to read

1.) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
Bought this in April (this year) and up to now, it's waiting to be read. As much as I want to finish reading this book, I just can't for reasons other than lack of time and that I have already seen the film adaptation -- I just lost interest. But as a book lover, and just not to put into waste the little expense I shelled for this, I will take some time reading it during Amber's afternoon naps.
2.) The Best of Archie comics.
Yes, I am including it under books because it is thick and a classic =P.

3.) Emma by Jane Austen.
Having read Sense & Sensibility early this year, it left me not wanting to read more of Jane's works. One of the reasons is that I find the long narration on the description of every thing boring. I know such is typical in classical books. But I have to give Jane credit for being anti with society's standards and expectations on women at that time.

This was on sale for 3,000KRW (2 USD). It's a known classic and with that price, I couldn't think of any other reason not to buy it. I fervently hope I will enjoy reading Emma, and as per Jane standard, this probably involves women empowerment. If I'm wrong, I'll get back to this post and strikeout the sentence before this.

4.) Push by Sapphire.
Another book on sale. I bought it for 6,000KRW (5 USD). A movie adaptation was made years ago and it received positive reviews. Based on the book's synopsis, it sounds compelling.

5.) Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner.
Bought it for 6,000KRW as well. Though I have completely shun chick-lit after reading a Sophie Kinsella book, I will give this book a chance after having checked Jennifer Weiner's body of work. She wrote 'In Her Shoes' which I saw on film and liked.

I've read the Hunger Games and Best Friends Forever + several chapters of Emma. Not sure why I can never read the whole book.

There are many ways to write an essay. However, the standard essay form follows the same basic patterns as discussed in this 'how to'. Most essays take a repetitive form sometimes known as the "hamburger essay". What this means is that the introductory and concluding paragraphs are very similar, whereas the most important information is found in the body of the essay. Think of a hamburger: The buns cover the top and the bottom - the introduction and conclusion - and provide a nice covering for the most important part of the meal the burger au.essay-writing-place.com.
