Reading: The Recorded History Of A Girl


In case you haven’t heard, Celine Lopez has recently become a novelist.

After her recent success with Metro Manila, one of my favorite films this year,  Celine decided to add another feather to her ever growing cap by introducing the world to her first work of fiction.

The Recorded History Of A Girl revolves entirely around a woman born in the late ’70s or early ’80s named “R” — which I can only surmise at this point to stand for rich, regretful, and rather lost. Her story unfolds before us through a collection of interesting letters strung together from her life. For instance, a note to her math teacher when she was 12 and a heartfelt message many years later to her granddaughter.

I recommend skipping the foreword, unless you enjoy killing fairies, and jumping straight into chapter one. I’m halfway in and it’s been an enjoyable ride.

I don’t usually share a book till I’ve finished it. But I wanted to let you know that for a limited time, Celine is offering her novel for free on Amazon. Have a click on this link and download it in less than 30 seconds.

It’s the ideal length for a relaxing weekend read. I’d love to hear how you liked it.
