So, book reviews. Not necessarily everyone's thing. But, I'm a reader. I have been since I was a kid (thanks for all the trips to the library, mom!) and I just love the sense of adventure I get from reading. I usually learn something new from every book I read, which isn't a bad thing either. So, if you're not a reader, you should be, but I'm not judging you :)
I loved this
book. It's seriously so good. It is written from a perspective that is
entirely different from anything I've read before. It takes a little
while to get into it, but once you do, you can't put it down. I know the
movie was very popular, but do yourself a favor and read the book. It
is actually very different, so be prepared.
totally on the not-cool bandwagon and did not read this book until
after I knew that JK Rowling wrote it. I am a nutty HP fan and so of
course I had to read it (I read her other novel, The Casual Vacancy - well-written but super depressing). I really enjoyed The Cuckoo's Calling! It is somewhat of a mystery novel; the tale surrounds a private investigator who is hired to look into a super model's suicide. I won't go into any more details because I don't want to give anything away, but it's very good.
This book has lots of buzz around it, so I was very interested to pick it up. Let's just say that it's a page turner. From the very beginning, you are completely hooked and I was pretty excited to see where it was going in the end. Without telling any of the story, I will say that the book deals a lot with the idea of fate and implies we have little control over the way our lives turn out. Even though I didn't necessarily agree with all of the perspectives, I do think it's a book that makes you think, which I like. I definitely recommend it.
Have you read any of these books? Anyone have any other recommendations for me to add to my reading list?
