Books Of The Month: January 2016

New year, new books!

Me and Early and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

One phrase description: The style stands out.

Quote:

The foundation of any good working relationship is trust.

My general thoughts: There was a lot more profanity in it than I expected. I know people say it’s funny and comedic, but I didn’t feel that way. Maybe it just didn’t appeal to my sense of humour. And I technically finished this book in December 2015. It was a nice way to round out the year.

A Night Divided by Jennifer A. Nielsen

A Night Divided by Jennifer A. Nielsen

One phrase description: A mix of history and story.

Quote:

Our strength came from the collective…

My general thoughts: I liked the concept and premise more than I liked the writing.

On Writing by Stephen King

On Writing by Stephen King

One phrase description: You can never go wrong with reading about writing.

Quote:

All I ask is that you do as well as you can, and remember that, while to write adverbs is human, to write he said or she said is divine.

My general thoughts: King is King. He will always be King. I loved everything about it. Also, I can see myself rereading this book in the future. I can’t recommend it enough.

What’s coming up…

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz

  1. I would like to read Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl. It still seems interesting. As for the last book… Let me know how you like it. It was recommended to me by a friend, but I have yet to read it.
