I’ve been experiencing a lot of 3 A.M. upheavals lately. I finished Persona 3 at 3 in the morning, alongwith Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3 and finished readingJerry Spinelli’s Stargirl. Every single one of them at 3 in the morning. Result? Sleepless night. Those are some of the best entertainment mediums I’ve seen which can make you squirm all night and not let you sleep.
Of course, I had a similar experience with Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher and Looking for Alaska by John Green. The point is, I no longer trust early mornings. If I have to finish something on that particular day, and it drags on after 00:00, I assume it’s going to have a deep impact on me, and usually it does.
Well, nonsensical rant, but hey, it’s my personal blog, I can do whatever I want. Ciao.
Recently, I had a really hard time finding a few good Young-Adult novels to read which are from a guy’s Point-Of-View (POV). Since most YA novels are written by female authors, it’s kind of a one-sided regime.
Here’s my list of books I have read so far which have a boy as protagonist, NOT including novels which shift from one perspective to another, and mostly novels with Urban setting (not fantasy):
- Thirteen Reasons Why – Jay Asher
- Looking For Alaska – John Green
- Paper Towns – John Green
- Twisted – Laurie Halse Anderson
- Beautiful Creatures – Kami Garcia
- Beautiful Darkness – Kami Garcia
- It’s Kind of A Funny Story – Ned Vizzini
- Forbidden – Tabitha Suzuma (A great and moving novel, although it shifts from sister to brother’s POV, I HAD to include it as it is fantastic. Turn here for my full review on the book: https://aindoria.wordpress.com/2011/03/14/forbidden-tabitha-suzuma-review/
- Ender’s Game – Orson Scott
- A Kiss in Time – Alex Flinn
