Up until 8pm last night, I was sure that I wouldn’t have completed all five challenges. But, I managed it???
And I only made one change to my original TBR (which is a miracle in and of itself).
Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire – 3 stars
This book was hyped everywhere: Book Twitter, Bookstagram, BookTube and even book blogs. So, here was me expecting THE WORLD from this one. I did not get the world. It was enjoyable enough that I wanted to keep reading but I wanted to fall in love with this one.
So, I have a question, have any of you read this book? Do you think it’s worth it for me to continue on with the series. I Need To KNOW!
(ACE rep, trans rep)
Pet Sematary by Stephen King – 5 stars
Jud Crandall is a precious little old man who has poor judgement okay? So, I’d thank you to not slander him. Now that I’ve said that, let me talk about the book. The grief that Louis feels after his son (Gage) dies is palpable and it made it so clear why he made his final decision.
This book has all of the spook factor of the movie so if you were a fan of that, then you’d enjoy this one as well.
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera – 5 stars
FULL REVIEW COMING SOON!
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon – 4 stars
What an odd little book. First off, when it started with Chapter 2 I thought something was way off. Then our MC explains that he prefers prime numbers and I breathed a sigh of relief that I didn’t get a broken file or something.
Christopher has Aspergers and so his outlook on life is unique and this book is confusing but Christopher is often confused and READ THIS BOOK!
October Country by Ray Bradbury – 3.7 stars
I’m really sad about this one. I had hoped that I would love all of the stories in this one. Instead I found that I could have lived without reading some of them without losing anything. With that being said, my two favorite stories in this one were: There was an Old Woman (Aunt Tilly isn’t here to play with you people!) and The Cistern (chilling, and a bit heartbreaking).
It isn’t a terrible compilation, so give it a try if you want.
Until next time, keep reading
