My Top 10 Books of 2014

Most of my favorite books in 2014 are Fantasy. My top read though is the Rosales Saga, a series of five historical and political novels, which trace five generations of two families, namely the Samsons (poor farmers) and the Asperri (wealthy mestizos) through Spanish and American periods in the History of the Philippines up until the pre-Martial Law Period in the 1970s. It's a gripping read that anyone who likes Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet will appreciate. The Rosales Saga is written by Filipino National Artist F. Sionil Jose.

It flipped open at Delivering the Goods, and I was in shock seven pages later. In my imagination I heard no creepy background music, no dark shadows, just business-like rustlings of equipment and clinical white light. It was horrible.
