Recently Read #6

I'm rather proud of myself for how much reading I've done lately. I've read 7 books within the last 3 months and whilst that may not be much for some, it's more than normal for me. I've been making more of a effort to take the time to sit down and read and it's definitely paying off. If you'd like to keep up to date with what books I'm reading, feel free to add me on goodreads.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan
I was rather disappointed with this book; i really enjoy John Green's book normally but i just found this a bit boring. It's about two strangers both named Will Grayson, who both live completely separately lives until one night when their paths cross. There just didn't seem to be that much going on, it seriously lacked some drama and i found Tiny to be rather self centred and annoying which also put me off it. Rating: 2/5

Always the Bridesmaid by Lindsey Kelk
I really enjoy reading Lindsey Kelk's books; she knows how to concoct the perfect chick lit book and this one was no exception. Between a crazy boss, a newly married ex and now in the middle of her two best friends. One is getting married and the other is getting a divorce - Maddie is trying to be there for her friends whilst her crazy demanding boss to get a job promotion. It doesn't sound all that exciting but if you like Lindsey Kelk and you love chick lit - you'll enjoy this. Rating: 3.5/5

To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
I was looking forward to reading this as I'd heard a few people rave about it, but i actually found it quite hard to get into at first. Lara Jean writes love letters to all the boys she's ever loved, writing all the things she'd never say to them in real life and she keeps them in the hatbox that her mother gave her - they are for her and her only. Until one day they somehow get mailed out. I love the idea behind this story but i think the focus gets shifted quite a lot and the letters aren't as much of a focal point as you'd expect but it's still a good read. I also think Lara Jean comes across as really childish for someone who is 16. Rating 3/5

Papertowns by John Green
I had quite high expectations for this and did not disappoint. Quentin is summoned on a all night adventure with Margot and then the next day she disappears, Quentin soon realises that Margot has left a series of clues behind and they've been left for him. I love the sense of mystery it has to it, and it's what kept me reading because i wanted to know more about what was going on. I really enjoyed this book and I'm really looking forward to seeing the film. Rating: 5/5

Dream a Little Dream by Giovanna Fletcher
The story of this book is a little bit ridiculous, it's so unrealistic but regardless of that i still rather enjoyed reading it. Sarah's been dreaming of Brett Last, a handsome stranger from her past - it's all very exciting until her dream-stranger turns up in her real life leaving Sarah questioning everything she thought she wanted. The story is a bit far fetched but somehow, in this book it works and i don't know if it's just Giovanna's writing style that kept me hooked throughout. I still really enjoyed this and it was such an easy read too. Rating: 3/5

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
This book was nothing like i expected it to be and it's so unlike any chick lit style book I've ever read. After losing her job in the Cafe; Lou heads down the job centre and gets a 6 month temporary job as a carer to Will, whose motorbike accident has left paraplegic and taken away his desire to live. With a 6 month deadline Lou takes it upon herself to try and convince Will his life is worth living. I don't know if i can even begin to explain how amazing this book is, it's such a incredible story and it's nothing like you expect it to be - if there is one book I'd recommend out of what I've read lately it would be this one. Rating:5/5

Fractured by Dani Atkins
This is not an easy book to describe so bear with me. Rachel's involved in an accident that leaves her badly scarred and causes her life to fall apart. Five years later, after having a fall she wakes to discover everything is different - the life she leads is perfect, the accident never happened and everything she originally wanted to happen did. It's enjoyable read but at first i found it so confusing, because it jumped between both lives quite suddenly but it all makes sense the more you read. It was actually quite a enjoyable read and the ending was unexpected too. Rating: 3/5
