Reading: Mary Queen of Scots by Antonia Fraser





Finding this very old copy in Booksale was really a treasure. Bought the copy for only P35 and after several  two months, I am still not finished with it; got too busy with the work and new blogs that I am developing,. So far, Antonio Fraser has done a very good job on chronicling the life of this infamous queen. Hopefully, before October ends, I will get to finish this book so I can move on her cousin Queen Elizabeth of England, whose biography I also have.

Shelved: The Name of an Angel by Laura Thornton



Synopsis:
Clarissa Cornwall, an American university lecturer in England, falls in love with her insolent student in erotic literature class Nicholas St Clair. She lets go of her inhibitions as they explore the pleasures of sex together. Eventually, she recognized her addiction for Nick and decides to move back to the US.

Comment:
When I first picked up this book, I was reminded by female friends who are now teaching hot-bodied young men in college. I guess I am lucky that I am not faced with the daily temptation to do one of my students because Laura Thornton certainly made Nick utterly delectable. His mysterious, devil-may-care attitude is exactly the kind of thing I’d go for.

Cost:
Php 95 at Booksale Festival Mall
