Better later than never, here ci bring you the December Wrap Up … all the books i read last month…
To be honest i expected to read more than i did, but i was feeling pretty bad the last two weeks of the month so i didn’t read much… Anyway, here it is!
The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau
♥♥♥ [and a half]
In a futuristic dystopian world were a terrible war left most places as a wasteland, only a few are sent to study in the university. But before they get there they are subjected to a lot of testingsto prove they are indeed made for the studies (or something). Many people say the book reminded them of the Hunger Games and at times i felt the same. Only in the Hunger Games Katniss really was better put together than Peeta, like, she knew better of how to survive and stuff but in this book i felt the male character was made dumb on purpose so the main feemale character will be the strong and wise one.. let’s put it this way, they are all the best and most intelligent peple their age in the country… why would he be such an idiot? at least in my opinion… Nevertheless, i enjoyed it more than expected, so i don’t really know what to say about it…
Endgame by Nancy Garden
♥♥♥ [and a half]
I wrote a complete review about this book, you can find it [HERE], so here i’ll just say that in my opinion and although i knew where the book was going i felt it should have been about bullying and just the bullying… the rest felt rushed and sort of out of place.. i don’t know…
How To Say I Love You Out Loud by Karole Cozzo
I wrote a review for this book back in December, you can find it [HERE]. It was a lovely reading, it was so bittersweet, i enjoyed it very much.
Some short stories by Stephen King
[Also, The Dune]
♥♥♥[and a half]
Because i was feeling like i wasn’t reading enough i decided on reading a few short novellas by Stephen King… I’ll just say they weren’t the greatest reads of the year, the made the time pass by though, so i won’t complain, but yeah… i don’t know i expected a little more of these…
The extraordinary journey of the Fakir who got trapped in an Ikea wardrobe by Romain Puértolas
Let me tell you that the name of the book says it all, that what the story is about… nothing less, nothing more… I started reading the book back in August but then i wasn’t into it, so i dropped it… the last days of the December i looked back on the books i started but didn’t finish in 2015 and when i looked at it i thought to myself, ‘it’s a little book, i can do it…’ so i picked it up and read it. The last book i read in 2015.
And well, that was all! those were the last books i read in 2015! what a great year for reading! I enjoyed so many books… I hope 2016 is at least half as good!
‘Til Next Time 😉
