It’s Wednesday again, and you all know what that means by now. Yes, a little recap of my reading. This week I finally stumbled on a five star book again, it was about time! I also stumbled on a book I’m not going to review. Are you curious now? Read more!
Last week I was still reading My Heart And Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga. However, I finished it soon after, but I somehow was a little disappointed. I expected that this book would get to me more, since it deals with depression and suicide. These themes are heavy, but the characters stayed very shallow in my opinion.
Furthermore, I started and finished Talon by Julie Kagawa. And here it is, finally. A five star book. You will find my review on the blog on July 3 since I have read it for a book club and we will discuss the book on that day. And yes, I decided to write this one in English. I can assure you that I was relieved to finally have a five star book in my hands after reading ACOFAS!
Then it’s time for the book I’m not going to review. Not that it was bad, it was a three star rating. However, I don’t really know what else to say about it and therefore I decided to let this review go. I’m talking about A Tragic Kind Of Wonderful by Eric Lindstrom here. I finished this book in two sittings, so there was nothing wrong with it. I just didn’t feel the connection to review it.
On last week’s poll, there were two books with an equal amount of votes. The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout and The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice And Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. I started reading the last one and that’s for a reason. My opinion on this book so far? Nah, I don’t feel it yet. I don’t know what to think yet. I will continue reading it and I really hope this gets better. Especially because I might be attending a Skype interview with Mackenzi Lee on Saturday at the YA Day in Boekhandel Donner in Rotterdam. This event evolves around English Ya and they have Skype interviews with Lisa Williamson, Mackenzi Lee and Julie Murphy. Oh well, let’s wait and see whether I will like the book!
Here comes the reason I did not pick up The Problem With Forever. This reason has a character called Damon Black and he is HOT. Yes, I’m talking about Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I expect to finish this one very soon and my review to be up this week. Spoiler alert: I’m having another gem in my hands. For the record, I know that this book has been released in 2012, but it has never been translated to Dutch. This finally happened last month. Therefore I’m just discovering this series.
I have so many books to choose from, wow. But I think I will pick up Queen Of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas and Rogue by Julie Kagawa. However, I’m not so sure about this combination yet, since there is a genre overlap. I also might be picking up Eliza And Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia or The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Queen Of Shadows is a definite go though. Thankfully I have lots of train journeys ahead, since I found a job experience place, so I have a lot of reading time.
Which book do you recommend me to read besides Queen Of Shadows?
