i wanted to make one separated post now that 3 months have passed from the 12, which means the first quarter of the year passed (thats scary actually)
the 50 books challenge.
im at 10/50 books at the moment.
– Amie Kaufman: These Broken Stars – 4*
– Yangsze Choo: The Ghost Bride – 5*
– Rainbow Rowell: Eleanor and Park – 4*
– Veronica Roth: Divergent – 5*
– Veronica Roth: Insurgent – 5*
– Veronica Roth: Allegiant – 4*
– Mindy Kaling: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? – 1*
– Neil Gaiman: The Ocean at the End of the Lane – 4*
– John Green: The Fault in Our Stars – 2*
– Holly Black: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown – 5*
so .. as i said previously i found Ghost Bride kind of inspirational and nice to live through as a book.
Eleanor and Park was lovely with its naivity, and childish honesty. i liked the feeling it created, and that finally a 16 yrs old that behaves like a 16 yrs old.
the Divergent Trilogy was awesome. i didnt like the third book. i found it boring, and really distracting (the two view. after getting used to one.)
the Mindy book was simply super boring for me. i am really not the comedy type of person, i dont find 98% of the jokes people say or tell funny at all. so i dont really watch comedy movies, and dont read humour books. my humour sense is somewhere really far from them. .. i still gave it try, because the last time i read a humour book it was about 11 yrs ago, when i decided its really not for me. .. seems like some things dont change. if you peel off the continuous attempt to be funny .. you find nothing in the book.
the Gaiman book was … really .. nice. inspirational and really great world, it was enjoyment to imagine the entire thing. its like feeding my imagination and creativity.
The Fault in Our Stars .. isnt a kind of book i would have started to read, if not for someone (i dont remember who, sorry, someone from the internet, i think twitter maybe) who recommended it with great enthusiasm, because how great the book is … … well, its probably not for me. was interesting to read, just for the info, like .. how someone in that situation might live her days. even though i have seen it, i still see it around me, exactly that, lighter, and worse as well.. i see it, i know it, but i have no idea how does it feel from within their head. for that matter it was interesting. otherwise i didnt enjoy it. at all.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown … is again not a book i wanted to read if not for the great recommendations. the youtube channel: answerly has started to review the book, and .. i have met the book before but i was like “nooo, this is clearly not for me”. i mean.. look at that cover. yakk. (yes, i proudly am a person who judges by cover.) .. but then the girl on the channel was also like this, and then the next week she was like “woah, omg”. so i also decided to give it a chance. and it really was a “woah, omg”-kind of experience : D its the kind of book that you cant put down.
currently reading: have not been decided yet : D … Patrick Rothfuss: The Name of the Wind .. has the highest chances at the moment, but it only gets clear when i do start to read it (probably tonight. .. or right now. .. naaah, tonight, i have too many works to do, cant get lazy now ^ ^” )
if you have recommendations, books you enjoyed really really much tell me please, leave a comment/message, im in desperate need of good books! : D
also, im curious about other opinions about these books, other books, your booklist~
