A thriller in monthly installments

Scholastic Philippines has recently launched a young adult series entitled "Conspiracy 365." The series comes out in 12 installments, so there's something to look forward to every month! How cool is that? At least we'll be spared the agonizing wait which, in the case of books in a series, usually lasts for years.

It's already April, so the 4th book is now out. "Conspiracy 365" is like a cat-and-mouse thriller, with the protagonist, 15-year-old Cal, must do everything to remain alive within the next 365 days. Very interesting premise, I must say.

If you've read my previous post, you'd know that I'm in a bit of a reading slump. Maybe these books will just be the solution to my reader's block. Besides, I think all 12 books would look good on one's shelf. They'd make very unusual conversation pieces.

Thank you, Scholastic, for these books. You really make reading fun! Of course, we will be forever indebted to you guys for publishing Harry Potter.

Oooh, this is where the Aussie TV series with the same title was based on. I meant to watch that series. I hope it was better than Abduction back in 2011.

Happy reading, Peter! I do hope these books will cure you from that reading slump. ♥

Oh, right! After all, this was first published by Scholastic Australia. I didn't know that it was made into a TV series!

Thank, Louize!
