So I don't have as many books to share about this time around, but I'm confident the next few weeks will yield lots of reading time, so I thought I'd share about these:
Thumbs WAY up:
Eleanor & Park, by Rainbow Rowell: Y'all. This book (which, yes, is written for teenagers, get over it) melted my heart. The relationship between two teenagers has never been so perfectly captured. Its a quick read, too, so I highly recommend it. Man, I wish my library loan hadn't expired, I would read it again . . .
Thumbs almost, but not completely, down:
Allegiant, by Veronica Roth: I was PUMPED for the last book in the Divergent trilogy. And I was disappointed. More than anything, this book felt very jumbled and the writing was pretty bad. But, my review is not the same as everyone's, so give the trilogy a try.
Looking for Alaska, by John Greene: same author as The Fault in Our Stars (if you haven't seen the trailer, grab a few tissues in advance. You're welcome), so I was really excited about this book. There just didn't seem to be a lot to it. Maybe I was expecting something as sweeping as TFIOS, but this didn't tickle my fancy.
