— feeling happy
Usually, i write reviews for few books there are few more books that i read which goes unannounced. For those i have come up with an idea of doing monthly wrap-ups where in i list out the books i read in that particular month and may be share a few thoughts about them because according to me every book is importance in its own way.
So, this month after a long time I’ve finished 5 books. After a long time because in the past few months I had actually reduced my reading to 1 or 2 books per month which is very sad and frustrating because my aim is to read at least 4 books per month i.e. one book per week. So yay!! This month i’ve reached my target. So here they go..
1.Handmaid’s Tale by Margret Atwood (Reviewed in the below post)
2.The Thing About Love by Julie James
3.Blind Obsession by Ella Frank
4.Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane
5.Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera
The Thing About Love by Julie James : 3/5
I’ve always loved Julie James books. I like that she has a strong female character and equally strong male characters as protagonists. Their quirky, sarcastic line for each other is one of the things i enjoy in her books. So i had to pick this book as soon as the book was released that too it was a long wait. But..But..But i didn’t enjoy this book as much as i thought i would. There was something i didn’t like about the book may be at times the information about FBI and the job'of the protagonists were more in detail than necessary that was something I didn’t expect in Chick-lit, also the ending was over the top.All said and done it was okay but i wouldn't miss another JJ’s books.
Blind Obsession by Ella Fran: 2.5/5 I just picked this book because it was there in my Kindle for a long long time. This is the first book I’ve ever read by this author and honestly i liked her writing it was fluent, and though the start was great but the middle became boring more like repetitive especially those sex scenes. Yes, I know it’s an Erotica and I also came to know that erotica is not for me. But actually it has got a great review, one of the other reasons why i picked it up. I’ll say it was an Okay read.
Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane: 4/5 Finally i read this book. From so long i wanted to read this book but i was scared of all those hypes that surrounded, but after reading i was not disappointed at all. Yeah i did make one mistake though asking my husband ‘how was the movie?’ because i didn’t know he would give away half of the clues. My Bad! And after that he kept teasing me with one or the other spoiler so i had to rush through this book to finish ASAP. All i can say is it was worth it. Great twisted story and great twisted characterization
Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera: 3/5
This month’s last but not at all the least book is ‘Juliet Takes a Breath’. I picked up this book after a BookTube reviewer’s review. There were lots of praises so i thought of giving it a try. Let me start by saying that this book did not disappoint me in fact i loved Juliet, i wish i had a friend like her so thoughtful, so sweet. The initial parts were great i rushed though them but after half of the book i felt as if nothing is really happening in it and then it became boring. But, overall reading this was a great experience for me because this was my first lgbt book. I had never tried one before as i thought i would never get it but after meeting Juliet, i think i do.
