Book review #3

I thought it might be time for a little book update, seeing as I’ve just finished a few, here’s what I’ve been reading of late… I often have a  of couple books in rotation until one really grab holds of me, any recommendation’s, let me know in the comments!

The hunger games

I previous read this trilogy whilst on holiday with friends several years ago. I pretty much devoured all three books in almost as many days and loved them. I decided to re-read them again before the final movie shows, and as I felt I may have missed bits because I read it too quickly. The second read was just as good as the first, and I still got through it pretty quickly. I had forgotten just how sad it is though.

Papertowns

I’m half way through this and it’s quite a page turner, if a little bizarre. I’m looking forward to see how this evolves and am enjoying how the characters are woven together through moments and random life connections.

The Luckiest girl alive

This book quickly turned into a must read as quickly as possible, and I found the main character fascinating, if a little messed up, then the book got better. I’m still digesting the various turn of events, but its an interesting read of American high school. Probably my favourite one I’ve read lately.

Elizabeth is missing

I loved this book, it was a little heart warming and sad and written from a brilliant perspective giving a fascinating insight into someone else’s world and memories. It reminded me of my days as a care worker, with many realistic moments and a touching account.

Daughter

I found this read a quick one as I wanted to know what happened, its quite absorbing as it’s a bit mystery/thriller,  although I didn’t enjoy the ending I thought it was a bit meh, and I realised I genuinely didn’t like a single character.

And the mountains echoed

I keep coming back to this one, and although I loved some of the authors previous work this one is taking me a while to get into. I love the colourful descriptions and the way it transports you to another time and place.

A window opens

I’ve just got hold of this one and haven’t really started yet but I’m looking forward to getting into it, as so far it looks promising.
