Better Late Than Never: Reading Wrap-Up (January to March)

Hey guys! You’re definitely reading it right. I’m doing my January to March wrap-up just now. I wanted to do an April wrap-up because I read a lot of books last April but I’ll just do a quick wrap-up for the past three months.

January to March is not a good reading month for me. I only completed 4 books in a span of three months. And that, my friends, is the reason why I haven’t posted any wrap-up lately.

One out of all the four books that I finished in the first quarter of the year, I started way back in December. But I’m not that disappointed with myself because I decided to power-throughย The Complete Collection of Sherlock Holmes Volume 1.ย I finally finished it! Took me two years to finally finish the whole book instead of reading one short story at a time.

Anyway, without further ado, here are all the books that I finished reading in January, February and March:

SYNOPSIS:

Narrator Nick Carraway tells the story of his neighbour Jay Gatsby, whose parties at his Long Island mansion are as lavish as his past is mysterious.

A literary page-turner about a beloved college professor accused of murdering his entire family, and one small-town cop’s dangerous search for answers.

Thomas Huston, a beloved professor and bestselling author, is something of a local hero in the small Pennsylvania college town where he lives and teaches. So when Huston’s wife and children are found brutally murdered in their home, the community reacts with shock and anger. Huston has also mysteriously disappeared, and suddenly, the town celebrity is suspect number one.

Sergeant Ryan DeMarco has secrets of his own, but he can’t believe that a man he admired, a man he had considered a friend, could be capable of such a crime. Hoping to glean clues about Huston’s mind-set, DeMarco delves into the professor’s notes on his novel-in-progress. Soon, DeMarco doesn’t know who to trustโ€”and the more he uncovers about Huston’s secret life, the more treacherous his search becomes.

Hello there fellow bookworms! Another book event has taken over our country. We only have the annual Manila International Book Fair or MIBF. But now, there is a Book Bazaar! Although, I think this would only happen this year.
