So, you may have noticed that I haven't posted a book review, in quite some time. This isn't because I haven't been reading, because I've been reading a large volume of books. I just haven't been reviewing them. This is in part because I've just been reading so much, that I feel like I'll never catch up, and partly because I keep getting to a review, where I don't actually have much to say. So I keep putting it off.
I don't want to keep getting further behind. So, I've decided to catch up, in some quick snippet reviews in this post. A couple lines and my rating. Then, from now on, I'll put a small review in my wrap up post at the end of each month, and only do full reviews for the books that I actually have something substantial to write about.
So, here goes.
This is a book that I would readily describe as a fun, light, quick read. I liked it, but it wasn't something that blew me away.
There are some books, that just hit you hard. Packed with emotion, Paperweight had me desperately turning the pages, and reluctant to put it down. Beautifully written. Simply an amazing read.
An interesting read. Weaving together different generations, and putting it all together in a compelling read. I enjoyed this one a lot.
This book had me hooked pretty early on. I loved the characters, and the intricate story that was weaved. Packed with emotion, this book kept me interested from beginning to end.
Mindy Kaling is so funny. Interesting, and writes with such a great voice. I fully loved this book from start to finish. I would also say, that getting it on audiobook is well worth it, because her narration, is unbeatable. Fantastic read.
Tennyson's Gift by Lynne Truss (Picture Unavailable)
This book didn't blow me away. In parts I found it moving so slow that I kept putting it down. For me, it just didn't hook me, and I found it a little disjointed.
It's a book about cats. Loved it. Funny and cute. Enough said.
I enjoyed this one a lot. Hawkeye is one of my favourites from the MCU, and so I wanted to read more of his comics, and this was a great read. Love comic Hawkeye just as much as the movie Hawkeye.
This one wasn't really for me. It wasn't awful, I just found it to be a little slow moving at times, a lot of times. I didn't feel myself getting truly invested in the story, or the characters. For me, this book just wasn't the best.
This is definite an interesting book. I liked having this perspective on weight loss, and on how being overweight affects both adults and children. Add to this, that both of them are hilarious, and you have yourself a great book.
Moving is a simple way to describe this book. It did have me reaching for the tissues. Emotional, and honest. This book was well written and compelling.
Tricky one. There were some parts that I really liked, but at the same time, so much of it I was reading and wanted to throw the book across the room. It's not often that I find a book I want to throw across the room. This one, though, in parts had me really wanting to. The ending was the biggest let down for me, however it did have some better moments.
Interesting read. I think the cover for this one hooked me first and foremost. I know they say not to judge a book by it's cover, but this one is stunning.
I enjoyed the story a lot. Good characters, and a good story that kept me interested.
Wow. This book is intense. Emotional, gripping. It's the kind of book you don't want to put down. The narration was spot on. The characters interesting. The pace, perfect. I loved this book.
This unflinchingly honest account of her struggle with anorexia had me hooked. I love books like this one, and I did really love the honesty even in the most intimate parts of her illness.
More reviews will follow in the next few days.
