I swear I’ve read a hundred books since I reviewed my last read here! Yes I know, I’ve been slack with my reading project – I have read but just not written anything about them. Ok, so here’s what I call my speed book review whereby I will try and remember the books I’ve read since last year and write one to two sentences about them. Here goes!
The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien – Not sure about Tolkien’s writing but enjoyed this nevertheless. I’d prefer Peter Jackson’s version though.
The Hunger Games (all three volumes) by Suzanne Collins – the first part was great (original idea full of action pack stuff) but the last two volumes just felt ‘forced’ and ‘waffled-on’. The movie version wasn’t any better either.
The hundred year old man who climbed out of the window and disappeared by Jonas Jonasson – I enjoyed this (probably because I was in the tropics holidaying when I read it). Full of references to world history.
All good things – A memoir by Sarah Turnbull – read this when we returned back to Australia. In some weird way (I don’t usually read memoirs) I liked finding out about Sarah Turnbull’s life in Tahiti. Makes me want to visit Tahiti one day.
The Rainbow Troops by Andrea Hirata – coincided reading this with the ‘One hundred year old man…’ book (above) and enjoyed it tremendously as well. I cried because I was happy for the children. Such a triumphant story.
What! I can only remember 5 books. Surely there have been more! Anyway, serves me right for not keeping up with my reading project. Ok, ok I promise to review as soon as I’ve finished a book.
