I’m pretty sure I went on a massive hiatus without warning everybody and was missed incredibly, right?
Okay. So maybe you were just missing my chocolate hugs but that’s beside the point. I’m 12 days late doing this ‘re-cap’ and sooo behind on like, um, everything? I’m so awesome, right?
But when I returned to WordPress, I saw that the post, draft place thingy layout CHANGED and no-one bothered to inform me. WHAT IS ALL THIS MODERN STUFF? Ew….
But shall we start now? Because I’m sure everyone is getting pretty bored by this point and I do not like to bore. My purpose is to read books and eat. Oh and of course entertain you little potatoes.
Books I Bought
As you know I’m a poor little potato, so umm, I only brought two books.
Crooked Kingdom – FIVE STARS. Oh, my. That was just so beautiful and wonderful and can I cry some more?
The Mystery Of The Clockwork Sparrow – 3 STARS. London. A Department Store. The 90’s. A Mystery. What a wonderful, refreshing read and combination. I liked this quite a bit and definitely worth my money!
Books I Borrowed
The Bubble Boy – 2 STARS. Don’t hate me! I know it’s quite diverse as it’s about a boy with a condition that doesn’t allow him to go outside. I think that was quite interesting to read about but, I just found it really boring.
The Uglies by Scott Westerfield. – 1 STAR. Okay, don’t hate me again! So many people say this is a teen favourite but for me? It was SO boring. Like, REALLY SUPER boring. I thought it’d get better but it didn’t? I WAS EXPECTING SO MUCH and they gave me this? Not my cup of tea.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – 5 STARS. Finally, something I ACTUALLY ENJOYED by Patrick Ness. It was so beautiful and wonderful and TISSUES AND TEARS. I thought the book was going to be childish but omg, that was a surprising read.
The Fever Code by James Dashner – 4 STARS. It was a little disappointing but WE GOT ANSWERS and I loved Dashner’s writing style in this. I GOT TO BE BACK WITH THE GANG and it was lovely.
Split Second by Sophie Mckenzie – 3 STARS. Not my first time reading something by this thrilling author and it was okay. Nothing amazing but I’d say worth my time.
The Perks Of Being A Wallflower – 5 STARS. Just wonderful.
The Devil’s Angel By Kevin Brooks – 2 STARS. It was such a random short book. So random.
Yep, here’s some LIFE updates, because you want to know all about my life.
WORLD BOOK DAY. To be honest, we should celebrate books EVERYDAY but never the less, I dressed up as SHERLOCK HOLMES. Anyone just freaking out at how awesome my costume was and IS? LIKE HULLO.
LEIGH BARDUGO TALKED TO ME. I AM FAMOUS.
International Women’s Day. YAS, let’s appreciate! I’m so bad because I didn’t even remember to wear some red. BUT IT WAS PARENT’S EVENING so don’t blame me. BLAME MY SCHOOL.
I’ve found a new blogging friend, MAY! I just thought I’d pay my respects to the Mango Queen because she’s so sweet (no pun intended) and wonderful! Our conversations are to die for because she’s so witty and funny! And have you seen her new blog look? *dies*. She’s such an awesome blogger – so CHECK HER OUT?
