Best Half for 2013


January to June

I am out of practice for almost 20 years, but using a ballpoint pen for this doodle wasn't that bad, right?  (You’ll be doing me a great service by agreeing, thank you! )  I wanted to say I made this because it was raining earlier, and that I wanted to kill some time, buuuut that would be a huge lie.  I was inspired by my friends who posted their own Best Half for 2013, and sort of promised myself that I’d post mine too. So in no particular order, here they are:

I strongly feel that I needed to add this even though I've read this on the 1st of July:

Oooh, this is fun.  If you like this list, maybe you’ll like my friends’ list even better:


  1. Great books, Mommy L. I really hope to find a copy of The New York Trilogy soon. Whenever I think of it, I remember you. :)

  2. And I forgot to say that this is the most creative midyear report! I love the artistry of it. It makes me really jealous (I draw like a 5-year-old kid).

    1. Sweety, you do know that you only need to say the words and my copy is yours, right? ♥

      Well since I am waaaay older than you, I draw like a 10-year old. (hehehehe) I did this while watching The Legend of Korra Season 1, which what probably invoked my childishness. :)

  3. Ang cuuuuute ng doodles! <3

    I will keep an eye out for a copy of New York Trilogy. Thanks for the reco, Mommy Louize!

  4. Louize!!! I am going gaga because of the artwork! I love it!

    Woot woot for Hope Was Here.

  5. Lovely doodles!(cutie mushroomy!) I think I may have Attachments on my TBR. The History of Love and Hope was Here sounds interesting too. I am a bit wary of Gilead. It isn't normally what I'd read but Lynai said it's pretty good. I am also afraid of The New York Trilogy because there are two words attached to it that makes me run for the hills: meta and post modern. Hihi. :D

    1. Thank you, Tin.
      Most readers are wary of The New York Trilogy. Metamystery is such a big word, right? But if you can manage to sidestep around that term, I promise you the book is quite interesting. :)
