So, sometimes I don't feel the need to post a full book review post, but in those cases, I still have thoughts I'd like to share on the book. I've decided to create a regular post to list and comment on the books I've read that month. Don't worry! I still post regular book reviews as well, these will just be monthly posts for the month. So without further review, here is my first post of that nature.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey: see review here.
Thirsty by M.T. Anderson: Meh, this book was a quick and easy read; definitely very YA. I was kind of disappointed that I didn't feel like it was wrapped up. Um, is there a sequel?
The Chicago Way by Michael Harvey: see review here.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins: see review here.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: see review here.
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling: For Kaling's first book, I thought it was very fun. I love her on tv (I was devastated when they cancelled the Mindy Project, then elated when it became a Hulu exclusive.). I feel like we could be best friends IRL and this pretty much confirmed that. It also made me feel like I could also write a book, which I'd like to do.
Grey by EL James: If I say that the 50 Shades books are the books that got me back into reading, would you judge me? Yeah. I'd probably judge you, too. I read them all last summer in about a week. If you haven't read them, they're basically the same as the Twilight series, but with more sex and no magical beings. The story-line isn't just sex, like the hype would lead to believe. The second book actually is more of a thriller. Anyways, once Grey came out, I wanted to read it. It's the first 50 Shades book, but from Christian Grey's perspective instead of Anastasia's. It stuck true to everything that happened in 50 Shades of Grey and it was interesting to know what he was thinking. It didn't take away from the fact that he's an insane, controlling stalker, but whatever. I enjoyed the book. It's definitely a guilty pleasure-type book and a fun summer beach read.
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs: see review here.
