“Ambition Destiny Victory: Stories from a Presidential Election” by Chay F. Hofileña and Miriam Grace A. Go (Cacho Publishing House)

“Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson (Simon & Schuster)

“In the Garden of the Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin” by Erik Larson (Crown Publishers)

“Trese Vol. 4: Last Seen After Midnight” by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo (Visprint)


“It’s a Mens World” by Bebang Siy (Anvil Publishing)

A sensationally refreshing voice, Bebang Siy brings outrageous observation and pitch-perfect timing to this smile-inducing yet poignant collection of writing about pretty much everything in her life. In friendly Filipino, she’s also fearless (writing about sexuality and trauma) and funny (writing about pretty much everything else). There, too, are poignant memories of growing up lower-middle-class, all of it draped with Bebang’s distinctive wit and capacity for wonderment.
