while I was sneezing and scratching my face (I’m getting my pills tomorrow… sigh) and being stomped by my niece and nephew, I surf the goodreads site and saw this…….

Honestly the International and Amazon Gift Card part is what attracted me but then when I read the GR synopsis…and it come to my mind that I haven’t really read any recently published adult scifi books and the premise sound interesting. Besides the favourable reviews was really intriguing.
Ever since the overhyped 3D-ed Titanic came to our shore, I utterly dislike that Malaysian people only remember the fictious lovers when the local cinema promoted the movie by utterly sugarcoating the real tragedy which made me became cynical about it. I remember finding out about titanic the same way Malaysians do.. from the movie. Sadly but I was around 9 or 10 when the movie came out (I buy Titanic stationeries too and not all Asians know western’s histories and not all westerners know Asian histories ) but I do watch documentaries and read about Titanic in non-fiction. (this recent article about the shoes and coats at the bottom of the sea were very eerie)
So a change of genre setting instead of historical retelling of the tragedy does seems interesting.. I might be getting the book later if I haven’t had any idea to read. (Who am I kidding here… I have to read 100 more books… doh)

Book update: currently reading Blackwood
Isn’t it funny that it usually take me around 4 hours to finish a good book… sigh…. book fillers… but it does getting good around this point although I have to struggle with procrastination (ie: babysitting, ovensitting, internet surfing etc). But a lot of status updates from others says otherwise. I’ll finish this before my Asian Desserts class tomorrow… hope so
