Coronavirus has had us all confined to our homes for over 100 days now and is there really anything better to do than to fill your long lockdown days reading with mugs of tea and blankets? Answer: quite possibly! In this post, I will be sharing some of the worst and best books I have read recently!
After finishing this book back in January, it left me thinking about it for days. It was sad in a brilliant way. It was one of the best books I had read in a very long time. I highly recommend it as it really does change your perspective on things. It's a classic. I cried.
Rating = 5/5
I first saw this on the lifestyle section on Asos and it immediately grabbed my attention. It was an interesting read, however, it wasn't too brilliant as the tips were just as easily accessible on Pinterest.
Rating = 3/5
Usually, for me, books are better than films. However, in this instance that was not the case. The book was pretty decent but it didn't cut it for me and I much prefered the movie.
Rating = 3/5
After hearing a lot of positive things about this, I decided to give it a go. However, it reminded me way too much of The Fault in our Stars by John Green, which I definitely enjoyed a lot more.
Rating = 3/5
Absolutely brilliant and my favourite book so far for sure! I loved everything about this book from the characters to the final page and I even managed to read it in less than a week!
Enlightening. Peculiar. Hilarious. This book felt like an entire journey itself as you went through the ups and downs of Alderton's life. I loved it.
Over 60 feminists around the world contributed to writing their own take on feminism in this curation. It was exciting and different all the same. I found it extremely interesting reading how all these women came about into the movement. This book needs more recognition!
A Christmas novel that I read in June! This book was beautifully written over a decade of love and sorrow. You will cry and you will laugh!
I read this book to branch out of my reading comfort zone and it sure did that! It covered sensitive topics such as war, death and brutal killings. It makes you appreciate what you have and to be thankful for it. I really liked it, much to my surprise.
After reading 'The Flatshare' I was eager to read another by Beth O'Leary. Although, I didn't enjoy this as much. I found it difficult to connect with the characters and the similar names all made it very confusing for me. I liked the plot and that was about it.
Thank you very much for reading!
