What I’m Reading Wednesday: Happy Birthday or Whatever by Annie Choi

I’m halfway through Annie Choi’s “Happy Birthday or Whatever”, which I bought for only Php 45 at BookSale. Choi belongs to a Korean family who lived in the U.S. Reading this book feels like visiting their home and meeting her family. Choi’s humorous approach in writing is mostly what makes this a very entertaining read. I’m pretty sure a lot of us can relate to her relationship with her mother, for I too, can very well relate. Choi makes me realize how much I love my mom despite her wanting and expecting me to be at my best all the time. A definite must-read.


Pixie Girl & Veronika

I started on a book called “Veronika Decides to Die” by Paulo Coelho. As I flip through the pages of this writer extraordinaire, I can’t help but admire his brilliance of coming up with such story. The character, Veronika not only speaks for people who have suicidal tendencies or are depressed and lost. She magnifies what all of us (at some point) want to be. Free.

Caution: This novel will make you think and (might) feel a bit depressed, relating it to yourself and the current events in your life.

I was feeling a bit down for no reason at all and I blame Veronika for that. Hence, I downloaded the pixie girl wallpaper to somehow help stir the mood up.

And I wore my new hot pink sweater (from trevisé) too, for ego boost! ^_^
