Paris in Love Eloisa James
Apparently the author is romance author. She must be quite popular to get away with this atrocity. If I wanted to read your twitter updates, I'd follow you on twitter. Now I want my $11.99 back!
I dislike the twitter concept anyway. Call me out of touch, but I prefer to read a blog post that takes more than half a second to punch out on a cell phone. But to pick up a book and find it full of these disconnected tidbits was just infuriating.
I won't even give this "book" a real review. Ug. /end rant.
|The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins|
I also read The Hunger Games Series this month. I know I'm super behind the curve, but after hanging out with a friend who is very into juvenile fiction, I was inspired to try to read it again. (I'd tried once, but our Kindle Account blacked out the pages so I ended up reading The Dark Tower series instead).
I enjoyed the book series. It reminded me of a cross between The Giver by Lois Lowry and Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. (As a side note, a found out there is apparently a 4th book in The Giver series looking up the spelling of the Author's name, yay!) I didn't think The Hunger Games was as good as either of the other series, but that could also be a generational preference. I expect if I had read it when I was younger, I'd like it as much or more. I am unlikely to see the movies, although I'm curious how they'd portray the costumes.
I am also in the process of attempting to read the most boring book ever written on the most boring topic ever considered.
|The Meaning of Everything by Simon Winchester|
I'm really lacking in books I'm excited to read at the moment. Although if our current sleep troubles continue, baby sleep books are going to top the list! :)
