You need something/someone that can get you going like a book – eyes wide open, heartbeat going fast and slow at the same time, happy and hurting at one single second, and above all, draws you entirely into itself like you would never get enough.

Only specific books can get me going throughout my lifetime – you know, that feeling of wanting not to stop reading and to know the next scene right away. Only a few authors can get you stuck like that. Really.
Best books or authors I’ve read (and still re-reading up until now) so far are:
- The Bible, of course
- Henry Blackaby (especially Experiencing God different versions)
- Bruce Wilkinson (Prayer of Jabez and Secrets of the Vine)
- Elisabeth Elliot (Quest for Love; aiming to have Passion for Purity, Let Me Be a Woman and The Mark of a Man soon!)
- Joshua Harris (Dug Down Deep and Stop Dating the Church)
- Sidney Sheldon (The Sky is Falling, The Best Laid Plans and Master of the Game)
- Mark Twain (Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Fin – so kid-like :P)
And now I’m hooked to yet another genius:
Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games Trilogy
It was a piece of art. I refuse to say that it was commercialized but I did start considering to read the book when I watched the The Hunger Games movie. It was great, really – so much suspense and twists and I’m thinking every single second. Although I should admit that I got an even clearer understanding of the story when I read the book itself.
My journey reading through Catching Fire was another blast. My heart real pounding of the thrill and my head always felt that swirl and ache from trying to comprehend and analyze where the story is going. Never a dull moment; never has it been predictable. Big applause for getting me this excited/jumpy/swirly-in-the-head/frantic/depressed and overjoyed at the same time… I’m running out of descriptions but one of the best book “rides” of my life! It’s sad the movie will only be out on NOVEMBER 22, this year. Oh puh-leeeaaassee, kill the wait!!!! (Haha)
And today of course is such a happy day! The book that would finally complete my collection (well, I read the other two as an E-book, but you get my point, right?):
I would like to thank my good friend and Events Master Vince Oliquiano for this wonderful gift-come-true. All Facundos and Senyoras aside, you really made my January 3 a biggie! This is a great way to start a working year. *hugs*
