1) What books are you currently reading?
2) What’s the last book you finished?
3) Favourite book you read this year?
4) What genre have you read most this year?
According to my Goodreads account, it’s Fantasy and Adventure XD Nothing surprising there lol.
5) What genre have you read least this year?
I’ve only read fantasy this year so… XD
6) What genre do you want to read more of?
I might read more romance or horror next year… I might but I can’t promise.
7) How many books have you read this year, and what’s your goal?
My goal is to be able to finish 25 books this year and I have just managed to finish 19.
8) What’s the last book you bought?
9) What book are you saving up to buy next?
I went to Powerbooks yesterday and I saw that the hardbound The Graveyard Book retails for PHP 1200 (approximately USD 26) but it’s just just 16 USD in Amazon so I might just have it shipped together with the Harry Potter hardback set I’ve been wanting to buy (Yep, probably my 3rd HP set. One cannot have too many Harry Potter covers. ^_^).
10) How many books did you check out last library visit?
It’s a shame I’ve never been to a library this year… Most public libraries in Metro Manila need to have their Fiction sections updated. If I were looking for classics, all I would need to do was to search for titles from my collection. Yes, I am making up excuses.
11) What’s a book you can’t wait to read?
I went bookstore hopping with Syme of OutandProud and we found some books we want to read ASAP. Some of mine are as follows:
12) What’s a series you’d recommend to everyone?
Sorry, I just have to list a number of series next to my heart. If I chose one, it would only be Harry Potter and if you’ve followed me for a long time, you already know it will always be my answer ^_^ So I thought a few more will be acceptable.
13) Who’s an author you’re hoping writes more?
George R.R. Martin will be my answer for this one. Those who have been waiting for The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring understand my concern.
14) A few books your heart adores?
15) What series’ coming conclusion makes you sad?
I have something for complete book-sets so I don’t really have a number of books in my head but this series needs to be dealt with, ASAP, or people will just remember The Song of Ice and Fire because of HBO.
16) What books are on your wish-list?
I really want to get my hands on this but I’m still asking myself if I want it because it’s worth it or because of Chris Colfer.
I have read Pendragon‘s ebooks so I always have second thoughts in buying the set so I can only wish for a good person to buy it for me.
I have heard so many good things about this series but I haven’t gotten around to buying any of its books. Another series I have set my eyes on is:
It’s a must.
Tagging the following people:
Syme, Out and Proud
Azelle, Life, Lemons, Escapades
Maiden, Sushi and Adobo

Oh! Philip Pullman books! ❤ I heard they are good! I'm just waiting to have my own paperback copy of it so I can start reading them.
For #10, I haven't gone to any libraries here in Metro Manila aside from the one from Pasig near Pasig Catholic College. And their selection of books are not that good. 😦
just purchased them yesterday in Booksale, SM MEGA XD I found the Amber Spyglass first but it took me time to find The Subtle Knife. XD Ortigas Lib is full of Filipino collections so if you’re into Nick Joaquin you ‘ll enjoy there. Caloocan Lib is no better T^T

Lucky you! The selection on Market! Market! sucks -__- I frequently go to Megamall since it’s kind of far from my place. Where exactly on Ortigas?
Near Marco Polo Hotel. 2nd Floor Ortigas Center.
