Top 5 Books Set in the Philippines
Noli Me Tángere (Touch Me Not) by José Rizal
Noli Me Tángere was first published in 1887 and was originally written in Spanish language.
This book is widely known in our country because the author, José Rizal, is our national hero. Moreover, it is also included on the high school curriculum in our country.
Diwata by Barbara Jane Reyes & The Last Time I Saw Mother by Arlene J. Chai
I’ve had a hard time choosing between these two books.
So, yeah, I ended up choosing both.
Before Ever After by Samantha Sotto
I haven’t read this book but right now, I am certain that I will buy this in the future.
Dusk (Rosales Saga #1) by F. Sionil José
This book was originally published in the Philippines as Po-on.
Dream Jungle by Jessica Hagedorn
I haven’t read this book too but I will buy this in the future.
The Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 books set in your country ignited my interest in reading classic novels from our country and it made me want to challenge myself in the future by reading Filipino classics.
