Books Of The Month | May 2016

What I Finished:

The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz

The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz

One phrase description: Slow in the beginning, fast at the end.

Quote:

…it isn’t the subject that determines good journalism, it’s the reporter’s attitude.

My general thoughts: I thoroughly enjoyed the Millenium series by Steig Larsson. And even though Lagercrantz isn’t Larsson, reading this reminded me that I still love the original characters. I say that it was slow in the beginning because a lot of time was spent introducing and developing new characters. By the end though, I found myself caring. So I devoured the last several chapters quite quickly.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

One phrase description: Italics.

Quote:

From now until the end of your days, you must lie.

My general thoughts: It was a tad bit too predictable for me. Or maybe I’m just better at seeing foreshadowing when it’s right under my nose. Maybe both? I anticipated the betrayal long before it happened. A fun read regardless.

What I’m Currently Reading:

Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Where She Went by Gayle Forman

First impressions: So far I’m liking it more than If I Stay.

What I Want To Read Next Month:

The Finisher by David Baldacci

The Finisher by David Baldacci

Why: Because Baldacci.

As always happy reading!

  1. I didn’t bother reading Where She Went. I didn’t enjoy If I Stay and I was disappointed by it. I think my expectations of it were higher than what it actually was.

    1. I was disappointed with If I Stay as well. I heard great things about it. I wouldn’t have picked up Where She Went myself, but I got the book as a gift so I figured why not give the sequel a chance.
