And now is time for weekly wrap up again, i found it very nice to do this since i don’t always review every book i read on here, because that would be alot of books hehe. But some i do, and some gets a little brifely summary also. This week i’ve also done The Reading Rush, wich have been interesting and made myself kick myself to read some long anticipated books that has been sitting in my shelf for far to long. If you want to read about how TRR went, the links for all the days will be at the end of this blogpost.
Alright, without furter ago, here we go!
Books read this week:
Dance of the heart by Andrea Downing
I could’nt see to invest in the story or connect with any of the characters. The MC Girl was annoying and sometimes sour and i just grew to dislike MC Boy and MC Boy’s father for how they behaved and acted. I think, this might be a typical it’s me, not you type of book where i had somewhat trouble following the authors writing style and shifting of characters.
Captain Easterday’s Bargain by Kathleen Buckley
I just could’nt seem to connect with any of the characters at all, i somehow liked Olivia but she got a bit dull after a while and i had problems following the story in the book. i think it’s a little «it’s me, not you» – kind of thing.
I’m Fine and neither are you by Camille Pagàn
This was my «read in the same spot» – badge book and it got me emotional and thoughtful at times, i do recomend it. But honestly the ending was a bit rushed.
Leah on the offbeat by Becky Albertalli
I just loved it so much, i read it for The Reading Rush, where i put this one in the «A book i wanted to read last year» You can read why HERE i also, put it at my 5 star read on TRR.
City of Bones By Cassandra Clare
For years i’ve been unsure and toying about reading it since people hyped it up so much and i was so afraid of not liking it. I did actually end up watching s1 of the shadowhunter series before reading the book ( GASP, I KNOW RIGHT?), and i did like the show ( yes i know it has it’s flaws and fault bla bla) But, i also loved the book alot. It was very hard to put down and the only characters i truly disliked was Eric and Valentine, i wanted to kick Valentine where the sun don’t shine. – GIVE ME THE SECOND BOOK ASAP.
Oracle’s War by David Hair & Cath Mayo
It was interesting read and another take on the mythology wich i liked. A little longpased though, but i might pick up the first book. seemingly as this is nr 2.
The murmur of bees by Sofia Segovia
I had slightly problems following the story because it jumped back and forth between characters and sometimes i didn’t know who it was and what happend. I’m sure it’s a beautiful story, but it wasn’t for me
The Rookie (fire’s egde 2#) by Abigail Owen
This book wasn’t for me, honestly i tried to get into it, but i failed. I’ve read some dragon shifter books that i liked, so i guess i might be picky? idk?
The Burn by Kristal Dawn Harris
The book had potential and was interesting at first, but i could honestly not connect with the characters, plus it alt felt very rushed to me – in one moment she disliked him and wanted nothing to do with him and in the next she suddenly accsepted the burn, very quickly. I tried my hardest to like the book, i really did. But it wasn’t just my cup of tea, i guess.
Touch me (Lusty Liasions 1#) by Nancy Frase
This book was over almost before it began, at 28 pages it was superfast phased.
It all happend in a blurr and in the next, we were at the end. I didn’t get time to learn much about the characters, nor connect or find time to actually like them. I seriously wish that it was longer, so we could see more of Maggie and Evan, learn to know them and possibly like them. I really tried to connect with the character, but as said it was too fast to even like them – and that is a minus to me. Had it been longer, and we got a build up with both of them and see their life, i might have given it more stars.
Untamed Hearts by Colleen O’ Conell
2 stars (more like 1.5)
The characters kept annoying me, i ended up not liking or caring about them at all. i tried my hardest, but just meh?
Shadow Music by Elisabeth Rose
It was a very interesting read and you could almost «see» and feel how obsessed Nina got with Mirand and Piers. And that was somewhat creepy, but it was interesting and i’m glad the happy ending occured nontheless.
Summer of 69′ by Todd Strasser
Lucas started out as a lovesick puppy and ended up for me as a pot-smoking wierdo/idiot? i could not care for him, at all.. i was bored and exhausted trying to follow the story.
On the come up by Angie Thomas (46% in)
Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (7% in)
I’d say 13 books is good! even though many of them are DNF’s.
