12 Books. 12 Months. 5 Words.


"12 Books. 12 Months. 5 Words" is a reading project where I read one book within one month for the next 12 months and then write a 5-word description about it. I will also feature related artworks from various artists. 

Click on READ MORE to know what I've read so far. If you have a book recommendation, feel free to comment! I'd love to hear them!

  1. I have a 12BooksFor2015 challenge to myself! :) One book per month. I want to read more but so far, I think I only have time for 1 book a month. I can't believe I haven't read The Little Prince yet in full. I've only read excerpts. Same with 100 Years of Solitude.

    1. Oh you should read The Little Prince! This isn't the first time I read it but the effect was more profound this time around. Also, make sure the edition you get is the one translated by Katherine Woods.

  2. one hundred years of solitude is love! i read it about four or five times. and it's always on top of my list when it comes to recommending books for people to read. =)
