Books Read

Friday Night: Let's Travel to France

"...Two loves have I, my country and France..."

An old old book my sister won in a school lottery when she was in 6th grade. The book was published in 1969 (I wasn't even born yet!) so its rather outdated but I still love to read and look at it from time to time. The book gave me and my sister a "love" for France, a country we've never seen but hope to someday visit.

Saturday Night: Comanche Moon by Larry McMurtry

A prequel to Lonesome Dove. Wild wild west. Texas Rangers. Scalping. Tortures. Simple people driven by simple needs and wants. Lonesome Dove is still way better than Comanche Moon or Dead Man's Walk but they're must reads if your a fan of Woodrow Call and Gus McCrae for it gives more insight to their character.

Upcoming Book: Dracula by Bram Stoker

Can't believe that I've never read this classic! I'm pretty excited since I have a slight fixation with vampires. It's crazy coz I dont really believe that vampires exist but i still get scared silly thinking of them... Special thanks to Cel for lending me the book.

More books please I'm dying here from "new books starvation". One can only read and re-read books so many times before you suddenly roll over and die of boredom
