It sure been a while, hope everyone’s enjoying their summer.
It’s hot and annoying, extreme temperature was never my thing :P
Still give me a book, and burn the world if you want :D
I’ve yet again added to my reading challenge, and now I stand at 39 books read out of 45, I’m taking it slow for the NaNoWriMo Camp, which will end on the 31 of July *wish me luck*
Now don’t get me wrong, these books were not boring, I read them all the way after all. Any boring book ended up dead after a few chapters at best in my collection.
The first two, had all the elements you know make a great book, the problem was simply a matter of taste. While the third stand in the list for not being able to sit in others.
They did not appeal to my taste, or more accurately, the main leads were just not the kind of people I would root for.
The poor kids are:
- Hexed by Michelle Krys: This one I read in two sittings, so It’s obvious it did not lack in the page turner effect. The problem was I hated the female lead, and her love interest just the same. She’s not the kind of a person I want to get to know. What do I say, she was too much of an arrogant airhead for my liking. Some people will tell you she was a breath of fresh air, and unusual, and she was, but not in the way I liked. Still, give the book a try and tell me if you agree or disagree. For me, I’m not waiting for any sequels.
- The Heir by Kiera Cass. This is the fourth book in the famous Selection settlement. I haven’t read the series, instead, decided to give this one a look before going ahead and getting the series and I must say, the writer did not disappoint in regard to her writing. But again, though I finished the book as quickly as I could read, the main lead disappointed me. She’s arrogant and honestly, should not be made queen. Or perhaps the book just cut out too early, and she will improve in a sequel. Either way, I might not invest any time in the series soon. Do give it a chance and tell if I’m wrong.
- Paper Towns by John Green. This one I’m not totally convinced should be on this list, I didn’t dislike it, but I can’t say I like it, and did not by any means, adore it. It was a choice made because I am still too much of a coward to read the famous The Fault in our Stars. Paper Towns was a good read, and I finished it within a few days, but at the end, there was something about it that was lacking. I can’t put a finger on it, and all I can say, it was just my weird taste. Do not hesitate to give it a read though, and tell me your opinions.At the end, I bid you farewell,
Tell me what you thought of these books if you read them and I’ll see you later,
