50 Shades of Blue: Great Water Reads

14 Jun 2013                   

You guys must love reading, right? If not, why are you even here reading this very post? Here are a few great books that revolve around water.

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea

This epic underwater adventure novel was first published in French over 140 years ago. It follows Captain Nemo, Professor Pierre Aronnax, Conseil and Ned Land as they travel the seven seas in the Nautilus, a submarine capable of high speeds and damaging other ships, built by Captain Nemo himself. I first read this book when I was about nine, and I enjoyed it from the very first chapter. I think what’s so amazing about this story is about how it captivates your imagination and makes you think about endless, wild possibilities. Definitely going to reread this when I find the time.

Pure Frankenstrom

This is the issue with the “Frankenstorm” article I enjoyed thoroughly.


Pure, possibly the best magazine dedicated to all things water. This quarterly publication touches on the latest happenings in the Singapore water scene, in addition to featuring great water conservation tips and interviews with celebrities. On top of that, it features great trivia like how superstorms like thyphoons and hurricanes form (that’s in the Jan-Mar 2013 issue). You can pick up a copy for free at many locations island wide, including selected MRT stations, libraries and newsstands, or you could download the PDF version here.

Cool Waters: 50 Refreshing, Healthy, Homemade Thirst Quenchers

This is a book I haven’t read just yet, but I’m hoping to find a copy soon because just looking at the pictures in the book is getting my taste buds tingling. These beverages don’t look anything like water anymore! Cocktail recipe books always feature drinks that are made with alcohol, which is why I think this is so refreshingly different. The names of some of these beverages, like Sangria de Agua and Inner Earth, sound so tempting too.
