Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge Meh. Good writing; I was ist really bored. It was like a bad version of an SJM novel. That’s all. Advertisements
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen 3.5/5 stars. This isn’t as good as Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights, but still a lovely story! I only knew to follow on because I’ve seen half of the miniseries. Without it, I think I may have been extremely lost while trying to follow the story.
Passenger (Passenger #1) by Alexandra Bracken WOWOWOW! This book was AMAZING! It was so interesting with such sassy characters, it was really enjoyable to read (yay!). I really hope there’s a sequel??? This couple is adorable. Overall, it’s just a bunch of fluff. But I like it. It has hot pirates, time travelling and a sizzling (but still Teen rated) romance involved. I am also a history buff so this journey was… Read More
Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss #3) by Stephanie Perkins 5/5 stars. IM DEAAAAAD. I CANT BELIEVE THIS IS THIS LAST ONE. I WANT MORE. Okay so I honestly thought the other 2 sequels wouldn’t match up to the romance of Anna and St Clair. And I was right. For Lola and Cricket (they weren’t nearly as interesting or passionate). But I was also wrong. For Josh… Read More
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov Of course this is a sick concept. But I love the complexity nonetheless. It is written so beautifully. From beginning to end, I never once read a sentence that I thought was worth less than the 5/5 star rating I’ve given the novel. You can easily take either side for this novel: H.H. was a gross, pedophilic man, or Lo was responsible for H.H.’S obsession. I choose both…. Read More
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD I CANT EVEN FATHOM HOW TO WRITE IT IN A REVIEW!!! Sure, it’s “”””””old”””””” English, but hey– if young Cal, who clearly needed glasses and had a short attention span, can understand it and thoroughly invest herself into it; then anybody can!!! From page 200, the whole book does a what the f*ck and turns so dramatic and fanfictiony, I LOVE IT…. Read More
Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver This book was boring, I was falling asleep the entire time. It had so much potential as a great thriller, but the characters and set up was one of the shittiest organisations I’ve ever read. Including high school creative writing pieces. My friend has given this book to me, TWO times in a row on my bday, so if you want a copy, feel free to ask…. Read More
A Diamond Guitar by Truman Capote All I can think is: “okay…… so?” Way too short for me to get attached, sorry.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote That was BEAUTIFUL!!! I remember hating the movie so much, and I can see it’s nothing like the book! This had a lot more of a meaning behind it, rather than in the book it’s very superficial. Of course, this is still Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and it still holds notions of superficiality (but more to it). Holly was an extremely complex character that I would have… Read More
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë This was so beautiful!!!!! So romantic, it touched my soul! I tried to read this a few years ago but wasn’t getting into it. I’m glad I saved it for when I’m older, I think I value it a lot more! So so so so so beautiful, I will definitely read it again 🙂
