Recent Reads 2016 | Books 6-9

Hi my beloved readers! I’ve been manage to read 4 books since my last Recent Reads update. *pats self on the back* I hope I can keep this up. Here are the books that I read:

  1. The Anatomical Shape of a Heart by Jenn Bennett. The reason I read this book is because I want to read something lovey-dovey for Valentine’s Day. Yes, I spent my V-Day reading a book. I am so cool like that. Anyway, this book is about Beatrix Adams who wants to get a scholarship by drawing an actual cadaver. Cross path with Jack while waiting on a midnight-bus, little did she knows, it will change her entire summer plan. I loooooove this book. It’s such an easy read but I guaranteed will you make shed a tear or two. I love how different Bea was from typical girl character in YA book. It was such a fresh breath of air.
  2. On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. Everyone and their unborn child seem to like this book so much. Unfortunately, I’m not one of them. This is such a surprise for me because I love Marchetta’s other book—Saving Francesca. This book is about a girl who is the leader of the boarders at the Jellicoe School. She has to keep the upper hand in the territory wars and deal with Jonah Griggs—the enigmatic leader of the cadets, and someone she thought she would never see again. The story began when Hannah—the person Taylor had come to rely on—gone missing. This book is confusing. I’ve been stuck on the same chapter for days because I keep re-reading as if I’m missing something. I don’t want to force myself reading this meanwhile I could read other books that are better than this one, so I decided to DNF it. I hate DNF-ing a book, even a book that I don’t like.
  3. True Love Story by Willow Aster. This book is about a girl who grew up in a Christian family (i think?) and then she met her favorite rock star and they fell in love. Bleeurgh. Usually I don’t mind insta-love. But this one is so typical and cheesy, I wonder how my eyes still intact given the amount of eyes rolling I’ve done while reading this book.
  4. Octopus Pie Vol 1 by Meredith Gran. Saw this comic book on Netgalley. The cover drawn me in so I decided to pick it up, also the description sounds so humorous. Even though, it’s not quite what I was expecting, Octopus Pie still entertaining enough. I got a lil bit attached to the characters.

Those are the books that I read. Now, I’m trying to finish this monster book called Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff this week. I think this is the biggest book I’ve read for a while now. The last time I read a book this big was The Host by Stephenie Meyer (lol!). After that I’ll pick up The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig. It’s on ‘Read Now’ section on NetGalley (yay! Review will be posted soon)


Recent Reads 2016 | Books 1-5

I’ve been watching Max from WellDoneBooks on Youtube doing ‘Recent Reads’ instead of wrap up. And I thought, that’s actually a good idea. So I don’t have to unnecessarily put pressure on myself to finish a book or do a blog-post  at the end of the month. Instead I’m gonna post a blog-post every time I read three or five books.  Let’s see how it goes. Continue reading
