Hong Kong Book Fair Book Haul 2015

Every summer here in Hong Kong. Publisher, book seller and reader gathered in one of the biggest bookish event. The Hong Kong Book Fair is like Book Con in the US only without the part where publishers give out free books and ARC but Book Fair is still pretty awesome. Basically you can buy books from manga and graphic novels to YA and classic novels in Hong Kong Book Fair, they also have a section for stationary, well for me I spent three days at the book fair. Before I go book fair, my mom told me not to buy too many because I can’t carry all of my books to England but somehow I still bought twenty something books #sorrynotsorry. Okay, enough of my boring backstory. Let’s move on to the book haul now, shall we?  

    
 YA and Middle Grade I don’t even know why I bought this book? I read the synopsis and i think this would be one of those funny book and I haven’t read any thing like that so… but YOLO right?   I remember some booktubers talked about Reboot and Rebel before and my friend and I bought this together so we might do a read-along sometime

  I read the first three in the series and I love it, so why not pick the the fourth book P.S the thrid book have a cliffhanger. And Chris Colfer is beaI love the TV series so I need to get this book

Classic
  I read 1984 by George Owrell back in late May or something, and Brave New World, We and 1984 are like the classic dystopia novel. And I just need to buy it because reasons…
    Okay, I’m obsessed with Little Black Classic… I read War of the Worlds before and I got The Invisible Man and The Time Machine the day before and why not have an extra copy of War of the Worlds and complete my H.G Wells collection?!   
I don’t have anymore excuse, I’m a shopaholic and a bookaholic and I’m not proud myself now I’m on book buying ban until Christmas *sigh*

This is my final Book Fair book haul, 27 books in total. How this happened? I don’t know. If you need me, I will be at my bookshelf staring my growing tbr pile 🙈🙊🙉

My English Presentation? 1984 by George Orwell

So I’m alive, since it’s summer so I am spend my holiday watching Teen Wolf, Jane the Virgin, Glee etc. And if you are friend with me on GoodReads, you would know I only read one books and I am sort of in a reading slump. Since I am not reading much, I can’t do book review. But everything would be back on track this week (hopefully), so what I’m posting/writing below is my draft for English presenation and my topic is YA dystopian and Classic dystopian. Since it’s a draft like a really rough daft , there are grammar, spelling error (and I’m too lazy to correct any of those and I just copy and paste the whole draft here so…) but I think it’s still readable. Can I call this a review cause it’s sort of is a review but it’s not a review (no, this is not make any sense) anyway without further ado; this is my English Presenation on 1984 by George Orwell


Dystopia come from the word ‘Utopia” and the word “Utopia” come from Greek which means no place or good place. Adding “Dys” to “Utopia” created the word “Dystopia”, “dys” meaning bad, combine the two words the word “Dystopia” meaning bad place. Utopia is ideal world, where in an Utopia there are a peaceful government and equality for citizens such as Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and the Giver by Lois Lowry. Dystopia is world with a controlling government like 1984 by Gerorge Orwell or even in no government suitation like Lord of the Flies by William Golding. A dystopia world could also have a huge income gaps between rich and poor like Districts 1 and Districts 12 in Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, indenpentent thought are banned such as thoughtcrime in 1984 Continue reading
