Hi, all my reading buddies! This week I've managed to read and finish three books!
I found this one on Kobo, and it sounded so interesting. I'd heard of it, but never read it before. It was only three chapters long, and it was pretty weird and quirky, but I enjoyed it! Such an odd read, about a man who wakes up one morning to find he has become an insect. Truly bizarre. Gotta have a bit of sci-fi in your life now and then!
I also finished The Great Gatsby and have mixed thoughts about it.
The writing is beautiful, but I couldn't really take to the characters. I think I will enjoy it more when I see the movie. The Robert Redford one from the 70s might be a bit old-fashioned now, but I'm really looking forward to the Baz Luhrmann version, which I am sure will be a visual feast.
Another book I finished was Everneath.
It started off a bit teenagery, but once I had more of an idea of what was going on it became pretty interesting and a page turner. It helped that there was a countdown at the beginning of each chapter as to how long the girl had on earth before she was dragged backed down to the Everneath (a hell-like existence, it seems). In the end it was the love story that I appreciated the most.
And this week I am reading (drum-roll please) The Hunger Games. I think I am about the last bookish person in the world to read this series and am looking forward to it!
