What I Read Lately

Hello everybody,
I hope you're doing well and are having a great reading time. I am sorry I haven't been around much lately. But even though I haven't blogged, I have been reading. So I decided to share my thoughts about some books I haven't reviewed but enjoyed a lot. There are some interesting posts coming up so stay tuned for those. And have a lovely weekend...

  • All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders - This was definitely one of the best books I've read so far this year. The story was brilliantly crafted and beautifully told. I loved all of the characters. They were absolutely unique. It was immensely funny and touching to read about them all. I've heard people describing this book as "weird", but I don't think it is. It's just really different, kind of raw and utterly honest. It's visible that the author has a really expanded imagination, which makes her story unforgettable. I would encouraged all of you to read it...
  • Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli - Another absolutely amazing book. To tell the truth, I wasn't planning on reading this one at first. It just didn't seem as something I would normaly go for. But because everybody was raving about it, I decided to give it a try. And I am so happy now that I did, for this book definitely desrves all the hype. I loved the voice of the main character. I grew fond of him practically immediately. And from then on I was investigated to the story with my whole heart. Such a lovely coming-off-age story that made me kind of miss my high school years...
  • Off the Page by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer - This is a sequel to Between the Lines which is a book that tells a story about a prince who would do anything for a chance of escaping the fairy tale he is forced to live in. In this novel we follow his escapades once his wish comes true. And I have to say that I loved Off the Page even more than the first book. It was really entertaining throughout the whole time. And as sweet as ever...
  • Life and Death (Twilight Reimagined) by Stephenie Meyer - I'd wanted to read this book ever since it came out, but I waited till it came in paperback because I really didn't like the huge bind up copy with the original Twilight in it. So I finally read it and really enjoyed it. I thought the story worked very well even with the swap of genders of the main characters. But I couldn't really separate this book from the original. And sometimes I found myself confused, for somewhere in the middle of the dialog I automatically started to think about Bella and Edward. So I don't know. I guess I am too connected to them to suddenly try to applicate their story on someone else. But over all it was highly enjoyable read...
