If you follow me on Instagram you know that I love to read and I frequently post what I’m #currently reading. It’s a great way of remembering what you’ve read and sharing that with others. Because of this I get asked for book recommendations quite a bit so I’ve decided to review them monthly here on my blog.
Here’s the latest round up:
Beautiful Ruins – A lot of people love this book, but for me I just didn’t take to it. Normally I love a flashback/present day novel, but for some reason the pacing and plot just didn’t do it for me. But a lot of people really love the love story.
The Fault In Our Stars – I finally succumbed and read this book. Part of the reason I put it off for so long was because I knew that it was going to be a tearjerker. And yes, I cried and I cried some more. Now that I’m a parent EVERYTHING makes me emotional and I felt more for the parents in this book than the actual lovers. The writing really was good and it’s a super quick read.
We Were Liars – Everyone knows I love a good YA novel and this didn’t disappoint. A good beach read with a twist.
Half Bad – Another YA novel, but compelling just the same. If you liked A Discovery of Witches this is for you.
The Circle – I really wanted to like this book. I thought for some reason there was more action/espionage in it. The idea of the book is great, but I just thought the lack of character development made the novel fall flat. By the end of it I really loathed the main character.
