Something to read :) Cheap must-read finds.

When I’m alone in Malls, the first thing I do is to go to the Bookstore. That’s the only time I can get the book I really want. I can’t go to the Bookstore and choose what I want whenever I am with my boyfriend who is so impatient to stay by my side while I’m scanning the shelves. 
Last Thursday, I was off to the mall to do some business transaction with my client. I am alone and while I’m waiting for him to arrive I entertained myself by going through some stalls. And I ended up on BOOKSALE located at the G/F of SM San Lazaro. 
Booksale offers wide variety of second hand books which you can get on cheaper price. Everything you need and want to read is in there. You just have to be patient enough to scan all the books in the shelves just like I did. 
After almost three hours (yes! Three hours!) of scanning the shelves this is what I found..

*French Kiss by Aimee Friedman

—> I am so happy to have this book!! It talks about PARIS!! As in everything about Paris! Places, food, people, the attitude of people is in here. I so love Paris and I wish to be there someday. I enjoy reading this and I just hope I will able to find the first sequel of it the South beach


Book description: Two beautiful girls. One sexy city. Endless opportunities for l’amour.

When Alexa St. Laurent falls in love, she falls hard. Can she keep her cool after meeting a French guy who’s too good to be true and too hard to resist? 

For Holly Jacobson, being in love with her boyfriend Tyler is as natural as breathing. But there’s no denying that Alexa’s Parisian cousin, Pierre, takes Holly’s breath away…

On a whirlwind rendezvous in Paris, the City of Love, Alexa and Holly are about to discover that everything sounds sexier in French. 

Rating: 4/5

Too bad I didn't get a chance to have the South Beach edition of this. 


* Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty
—> Well I just find the cover cute that’s why I got this one haha :) I haven’t read this one. I’m planning to read this after I read the French Kiss by when the time came, another books arrived. (I’ll post another blog for that). So I postponed reading this but soon I will read this. 



Book description: Australian triplets Lyn, Cat, and Gemma Kettle are about to turn thirty-three and one is pregnant, one has just had her life turned upside down, and one is only just keeping her from skidding off the fast lane. Meanwhile, their divorced parents have been behaving very oddly indeed.

In this family comedy by Liane Moriarty, we follow the three Kettle sisters through their tumultuous thirty-third year — as they deal with sibling rivalry and secrets, revelations and relationships, unfaithful husbands and unthinkable decisions, and the fabulous, frustrating life of forever being part of a trio.

Rating: 3/5
Though it is filled with humor, I don't find the book very interesting. The story somehow kinda boring for me.



I only got French Kiss (Paperback) for PHP 75.00 and Three Wishes (Hardbound) for PHP 60.00. Go to your nearest second hand bookstores near you!!

Thanks for visiting. Stay beautiful!
