WEEKEND READS | Zodiac + Into the Dark

current read.

I've been a bit inactive but that's because I've been reading. A bit of school stuff happening but nothing completely major right now. Anyway, the weather has been gloomy this past few days. Classes get suspended. It's raining almost non-stop. I hate it. I mean rain is fine but I really wish it doesn't go for an entire day or two or three. It scares me.

I hope we get a better weather next week!!

ALSO, I'm 10 books away from finishing my Goodreads Reading Challenger 2016 and it's only August. I'm thinking of moving my goal from 70 to 80 or 90. For 2 years, I go for 70 books because that's the most manageable for my reading pace. But this year, I got waaaay ahead of my schedule. So I think an increase in my goal is just right :)
Genesis Girl (Blank Slate #1) | Jennifer Bardsley
I really, really like the world of this book. I had mixed feelings for it though but I still really enjoy it. I like its idea -- a dystopian world where a few children are sent to Tabula Rasa School. They are taught of the evils of technology and are raised to stay away from it. After graduation from Tabula Rasa, they are sold to the highest bidders as models/advertisers of products. The idea is that because Tabula Rasa graduates called Vestals do not have any 'virtual footprint', it makes them the most reliable advertisers. Blanca, unlike her fellow Vestals, became a Geisha -- a Vestal bought not by a company but by a private person for private purposes.
The story really has a lot of interesting turns. I wouldn't say that they are like plot twist or anything. They made me confused a bit -- like at times, I don't even know what's going to happen next, I had no idea where the story is heading. Good thing? Bad thing? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I still ended up enjoying it though. Full review soon!!

Big Little Lies | Liane Moriarty
This book is too good!! I LOVE how well the characters were fleshed out. I like the mystery. I was really intrigued. I LOVE how it ended -- how it lead to that ending. How I just kept on guessing what happened until it was told. Never guessed it really. Moriarty totally brought my attention else where. haha. Review soon!!
I immediately jumped into Epic Reads's #ReadingDecathlon. I'm a bit busy but not super super super busy right now. So I was like, why not? 10 books for 10 days. Not my thing but why not?

Zodiac (Zodiac #1) | Romina Russell
I'd already half way through this which is super amazing for my super slow reading pace. I'm enjoying it and would really LOVE to get into its world as much I got into Red Rising and Unwind -- like how I just KNOW most of its terms and can get into some fancy book-lingo. 
Into the Dark (Into the Dark #1) | Caroline T. Patti
This book involves people who can transfer from one body to another and people who stop those who do so. There's romance involve (naturally). I'm just a few chapters up but I'm highly interested. 

There Once Were Stars | Melanie McFarlane
For a blog tour next. I know I suck for still not reading it but after Into the Dark, I promise!!
The Seven Dials Mystery (Superintendent Battle #2) | Agatha Christie
I'm finally reading this!! This my 2nd book for the #ReadingDecathlon. Really need short books for this readathon!!
