Hi bookish friends!!
Welcome to my mini review post!!
As you may have noticed (or maybe not) but I’ve not been posting as many reviews than I normally do. Life’s been busy, had a few health issues, but things are finally calming down and I’m playing catch up with all my reviews!!
Today I’m sharing my quick thoughts on some of the books I read back in February!!
(if you would like to know more about the books just click on the book images and you’ll be taken to their Goodreads page)
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion – 💙💙💙💙
This is a little different to what I would normally pick up but it had been recommend to me by several friends, so thought I would give it a go.
Although it did take me a little while to get into, the story itself is well written and after the entitle slow start I found it became easier to read. I thought the main characters were well crafted and thoroughly thought out. I found them to be believable and entertaining. Overall a fun read!!
How To Kill Your Family by Bella Mackie – 💙💙💙
I really wanted to love this more than I did. I mean it wasn’t a bad read but after hearing some great things about it I was expecting a fast paced and intense read, but sadly I didn’t get it.
The story started off good but then after about the third murder things went downhill. It became very repetitive especially when it came to the murders. The main character followed the same structure for all her murders so by the end it just got a little boring. Also, some of the situations that the main character got into felt a bit too convenient and at other times a bit too far-fetched.
I personally think that this book could have been a little shorter, with some unnecessary things taken out.
All in all, not a bad read but definitely one that could have been much better.
The Green Mile by Stephen King – 💙💙💙💙💙
Stephen King maybe one of my favourite authors, but some of his books have been a hit or miss with me. But The Green Mile was definitely a hit!!
A great paced story that draws you in and won’t let you go from start to finish. This is definitely one of Kings finer books with characters that are brilliantly drawn and you really get to know them well. I loved all but one character and that was Percy Whetmore. I’ve not liked many characters in books but this is one character that I truly hate and wish it was him in the execution chair, he was just a pure evil. My favourite was definitely John Coffey. He just came across as a big squishy giant that I would love to be friends with!!
A fab King classic!!
