Hello to all my bookish readers!
This week I finished reading Mockingjay, which, to be honest, I found a bit boring, until the last section when the action intensified. And I enjoyed the ending too. Surprising in a way, but also made sense.
I managed to pick up a copy of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas for $1 from the second hand book shop, and it was so well read, I loved the feel of the pages! I had already seen the film of this book which was quite shocking, and I was interested to see how I felt reading the book. I do love to read a story written through the eyes of a child, and the naivety of the children was even stronger in the book. The ending of this story is just awful, but the twist is cleverly done, and the message powerful.
This is a story that stays with you. Like, forever.
We're off for a trip to Melbourne tomorrow, so I will go back to reading books on my iphone.
I am currently reading
so I have more than enough to entertain me!
I am linking up with Book Journey, too, to see what everyone else is reading:
Have a lovely week, full of real or bookish adventures!
