September Book Review.

Monday, October 5, 2020

Hey, y'all!! Happy Monday!! It's book review day!! Except I'm not excited for this book review. I had the hardest time, I repeat, the hardest time with books this month!! I could not find anything that I enjoyed!! So if you have any book recs for me, leave them in the comments!! 

1. Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender

I did not like this book. 

Like at all. 

This book is about a girl named Alexis who lives a pretty dysfunctional life. And her sister is weird. Very weird. Alexis starts to notice that her sister is acting even more weird than normal, and she starts to get concerned.

I had to force myself to finish this book. The characters weren't good. It wasn't very interesting. It was just blah if you get what I mean. 

I don't know what else to say. I don't recommend this book. 

2. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey 

I also did not like this book. 

It just dragged on. 

I read the first few chapters, and I liked them, and then I reached about 1/4 way through and started to get bored by it. 

This book is about an alien invasion that comes in 5 waves, which I don't understand that - just come in one wave!

I think that maybe I would like this book if I were to reread it, but as for now, I don't like it. I'm not sure why I didn't like it, except for the fact that it was so long. I just had a really hard time finishing it. 

3. The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson

For those of you who have been here for a while, you would know that I read Truly Devious back in June, and I liked it. It was quite a mystery, and it kept my attention the whole time. Well, this month I read The Vanishing Stair, which is the 2nd book in the trilogy, and I sorta liked it.

I feel like this book just wasn’t as interesting as the other one. It didn’t keep my attention liked the first one did. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t great. It was just missing something for me - It didn't keep me on the edge of my seat ;(

4. The Shack by Williams Paul Young

This book is about a man who’s daughter was killed, and he comes to know God through the healing process.

I thought this was a super sweet story, that was also super sad. It was touching, but I felt like something was missing. This is based on a true story, but I feel like the writing of this book wasn’t all too great.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great and touching story, it just wasn't my favorite.

5. Lord of the Flies by William Goldberg

Back to the classics!! I think I’ve decided to read one a month, and this month it was Lord of the Flies!!

Yeah...I didn’t like it.

It wasn’t the worst, but I didn’t like it. I’m not sure why I didn’t like it, but I just didn’t. And yup, that’s all I have to say. 

Well, that's all for today folks!! Don't forget if you have any book recommendations, leave them in the comments!! Have a great Monday!!
