One of the main reasons this caught my eye was that it is scheduled to be throughout the whole month of February. I decided that if I wanted to do at least one of these challenges ASAP, I would have to do it in February before things with school and thesis get even more hectic than it already is. Another reason why, is because “Fantastic February” is dedicated to reading fantastical books, and since I am in such a huge mood for fantasy right now (mostly because I got a lot of books under the fantasy genre in my TBR list…), I thought it would be a good idea to go for it!
“Simon vs. The Homosapien Agenda” is about Simon Spier, a high school student who is also a closeted gay kid. The only person who knows this is Blue, a guy he met online who also goes to his high school. The twist? Simon and Blue don’t know who the other is. But when a classmate finds out about Simon’s sexuality and his emails, he blackmails Simon for his own gain, thus starting a hell of a ride for Simon as he figures out a way to balance school, friends, family, their upcoming school production of “Oliver”, and Blue.
“Si Janus Silang at ang Tiyanak ng Tábon” is about a young boy named Janus Silang. Janus is, like almost every kid his age, is addicted to video games — namely an online computer game named T.A.L.A., which is sort of like the story’s versions of League of Legends (LoL) and DOTA. One night, Janus is in a computer shop with his friend Harold and a bunch of other kids in their little town, when Janus finishes level 8 of T.A.L.A. he feels something go wrong and takes a weird trip home. The next day, he finds out Harold and the other guys at the shop were found dead.
