Well, no, much to your disappointment, it's not a movie review, mind you. But why the title ? That's a long story. (By the way, I think Number 3 died in Malaysia) Not really long, so here goes the story;
One day, I decided that I might as well go out with my room mate on a Sunday since I'm not running back home. So when she came back one day, I don't remember when, I asked her if she wanted to go watch a movie and she excitedly said yes. She brought up that our college senior actually asked if she wanted to go watch movie with him, so in the end, all three of us went to Mid Valley to watch House At The End of The Street, #HATES ! It's been ages since I've been to Mid Valley ever since I entered university. Well, give a month or so. Lets cut to the chase, we went to MPH since we still had some time after having lunch. And god forbids, the new arrival rack instantly took my life away !
Yes ! Top of the list, The Time Keeper, Mitch Albom. I knew at once when this book was released, but I told myself, it's okay, we'll wait till the paperback is out. And ever since it was released, I've never stepped into any book stores so it didn't really bother me much. But when I saw this physically in MPH, I started to debate with myself. I was like, hmm, there have to be at least one luxurious-oven-hot-just-released-book once in your lifetime right ? So I was holding this book, wandering around with my room mate, still debating whether should I buy it. Then, comes another tragedy ..
J.K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy. Omaigod. I mean, it's been years ever since she had any new book ! And it's huge and cheaper than The Time Keeper and she kept me waiting longer than Albom did. So I grabbed it along as well and continued wandering, mumbling if I should buy them, wtf. Like I'm rich or something, gahh ! But finally, I decided we shouldn't waste our time wandering around a book store full of books when non of us have any solid intention to buy any books at all. I put those two books down, yes, asshole I am, and collected our senior from the magazine section and was about to leave ..
Damn it, The Twelve, Justin Cronin. The previous two books, I knew it was released because I kept tab with both authors. But this, I had no idea for some particular reason. I was like, doomsday ! Why aren't we freshmans granted with the book vouchers ? This book can still wait, but the previous two books are driving me insane !! Gah ..
SO .. yeah, you've just wasted few minutes to read about my ranting on new releases. But hello, it's been ages since there are books that I really wanted can ?
Paperbacks, I'm waiting for you !!
