It has been such a hectic month, I honestly don’t know where the time has gone! As I’ve said plenty of times, I’m doing exams at the moment (very important exams!!) so I’ve been revising like crazy and attending a lot more classes than I used to do. So consequently, there’s been some rather large gaps between my posts this month, but it couldn’t be helped.
I’ve read three great books this month, all of which I have reviewed. Let me tell you more about them:
The first book I read was the second book in Ransom Riggs’ amazing Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children trilogy: Hollow City. I didn’t know what I was expecting from the sequel, but I certainly didn’t expect a book of such high standard as this. It was undoubtedly just as good as the first book, for me, and I loved every page. The peculiar photographs were just as amazing, and the characters were very well-developed. I gave it a five-star rating.
The second book I read this May, was The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I was very impressed with this book. It wasn’t what I expected and the writing was amazing. There were such deep and meaningful reasons behind everything Chbosky wrote and I really bonded with the main character; Charlie. It was a pleasant surprise after I had put off reading this book several times. I gave it a well-deserved five star rating.
Finally, I read Jo-Jo Moye’s amazing: Me Before You. Aw, I just loved this, despite it being heart-breaking and sad. The characters were just beautifully developed and the story flowed very well. The end made me cry so much. Although the story was quite predictable for me, I still very much enjoyed reading Will and Louisa’s journey and I’m so glad I picked this book up and read it. It comes with such a valuable moral and it offers a very interesting perspective which most people won’t have considered before. I gave it a 4.5 star rating, mainly due to the fact that it was so sad.
