I’ve finished a few books recently, but haven’t discussed them, so here they are:
I finished Twilight yesterday after starting it the evening before. I loved it. It’s young adult, so it wasn’t difficult, but I was enthralled by the story. I thought the love story was beautiful. Ben kept making fun of me for smiling while I was reading it. It made me feel like a teenager again. Sometimes that’s a good thing. I’ve been getting more into fantasy and vampires have always held a soft spot for me (like Buffy and the Last Vampire series I was obsessed with when I was younger). But it wasn’t very fantasy-ish. It seemed more realistic. I can’t wait to go get New Moon and Eclipse and read them.
I finished this a couple days ago. I liked it. It was an easy read (although long). I thought the story was very interesting. Historical fiction is always interesting though. I’m really looking forward to the movie and I’m sure I will read her other books eventually.
I finished this awhile ago. I thought it was a little pretentious, but enjoyable. I’ve heard his second book is better, so I’d like to give it a try. It was an interesting idea with an interesting structure. I really liked it when Alex narrated – his broken English was hilarious. I know that I should have read this book a few years ago when it was big, but I’m glad that I finally got around to it.
I’m currently reading The Sun Also Rises. I’m really excited to read another Hemingway – it’s been awhile. I’m liking it so far. I’m amazed by his writing ability – the way that he can pack so much into so little.
