Jasmin Is Melisa de la Cruz Filipino? XD


message 23: by Jasmin (new)

Jasmin Oh I just looked her up. She is. :O


message 22: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi Yep she is Filipina, but I think she lives in US now


Joselito Honestly and Brilliantly In the 500 Great Books by Women (Erica Bauermeister, Jesse Larsen and Holly Smith) there are two entries from Filipino women authors: DOGEATERS by Jessica Hagedorn and AWAITING TRESPASS by Linda Ty-Casper. I haven't read the former, and I would have voted for the latter had it been in your list.


message 20: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi You can add books to this list just click on the adjacent tab above "add books to this list"


message 19: by Tintin (new)

Tintin Are comics not included? Only novels? :)

I was about to ask the same thing.
Do you mind if I delete them?

I recommend Bata Bata Pano Ka Ginawa, this book puts Filipino novels in a pedestal. Also try Rizal's works :)

you can try Karen Francisco's Naermyth... a great book that could be great as any popular vampire/gothic novels..

Laura The Little Prince
by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry ???


message 6: by Dagny (new)

Dagny Laura wrote: "The Little Prince

Yes, surely he was French. Born in Lyon, school in Switzerland. I believe he was in the United States when he published The Little Prince. Also spent time in Northern Africa.


message 5: by Laura (new)

Laura I know, that's why his book must be removed from this list.


message 4: by Hayley (new)

Hayley What about Stevan Javellana's Without Seeing the Dawn?


message 3: by Tmac (new)

Tmac Daoey I recently read the first fictional novel ever written by an Igorot of the Philippines. That alone should be why it belongs on this list.


message 2: by Zara (new)

Zara hi guys..i need an analysis of Kerima Polotan's The Hand of the Enemy. Can someone help me? I badly need it in my major subject.
