WWW tackles 3 questions:
What are you reading?
What have you finished?
What will you read next?
Started Freaky Friday (Andrews Family, #1) last week. This book is aged – even in the way the audio is spoken. (It could also be that I’ve never read a book with a child narrator too.) I also expected it to be more like the movie, with a full switch of mom and daughter. Instead, the daughter is in the mom’s mind and “plays the part” by adopting the mom’s personality. The daughter retains the same personality.
For being a short book (~3 hours) it’s hard to get past the voice. (~50%?)
I also started Shutter Island because I wanted a break from Freaky Friday. Turns out I’m apathetic in general this week because this isn’t cutting it for me either. Interesting so far though. (~10%?)
Go Set A Watchman was as I was warned. It is a walk down memory lane for Scout, with some unexpected results. These unexpected results will cause you to completely rethink To Kill A Mockingbird. It actually diminishes the first book IMO.
Finally read The Girl on the Train and, quite frankly, have no idea why people compare this book to Gone Girl. I’m not savvy with the specifics of literature and technically being drunk can reduce unreliability, but this book didn’t provide the unreliable narrator I was hoping for. That said, it did provide multiple suspects to guess from.
I couldn’t resist Ugly Love after reading a review on The Worn Bookmark. She said it’s a great Colleen Hoover book to read after November 9 and she was right! This was a great read, although I found that the main male was a little controlling. Beware of the ending because you will cry… Thankfully I didn’t finish it at work 😉
Final Hour (Ashley Bell, #0.2) was an okay read. It wasn’t as good as the first novella, but did have a twist ending that I appreciated. Overall, I’m not a short story fan. If Koontz decides to write a book with the same lead character, I would eat it up.
I genuinely do not know what this book is about with the exception of knowing it is a murder mystery. This read falls under the challenge of “first book you see in a book store”.
I’m somehow busy this week, but hope to visit every one’s pages this weekend. Promise 🙂
