Book Review Roundup

Over the past few months I’ve found myself picking up a lot more books to read. I’m now at a point where I both don’t feel like writing separate posts for them all, and also wouldn’t be able to remember enough about some of them to even fill one. For example, I had to google…

Book Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

When I first heard about Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl I was not very interested in reading it. I thought it would end up being an incredibly superficial and clichéd story, and I was not familiar with the author. However, in the weeks after the book was released I kept hearing about how good it was and…

Book Review: Allegiant

I started reading Divergent sometime around January and I remember enjoying it at the time. Immediately after finishing it I started reading Insurgent, and I remember thinking that it didn’t quite live up to the first novel.

Book Review: One Day

I don’t usually review the movie adaptation before the novel, but his time I finished the book after the movie. A few weeks ago I wrote a review of the movie One Day after only having read half the novel, and his week I finished the book. The arguments I made for the movie still stands,…

Book Review: Never Let Me Go

  I bought Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel Never Let Me Go a few weeks ago and finally started reading it two days ago, and was not able or willing to put it down for anything less than much needed sleep at 4:30 in the morning. I am not a literary critic, but I’ll do my best and…

The Hunger Games

A few months back I started reading the Hunger Games after having heard and read a lot of good things about it. I had not been able to read much for a while previous to this because of exams, but summer had finally started so I thought I would check it out. Most of the…
