Recently Read


Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck- I read this in English class. I really enjoyed this book and found it was an easy read. I've heard mixed reviews about this and believe that most people who didn't enjoy it read it in school and simply got fed up with having to analyse it. I found Lennie such an adorable character who was so easy to love and feel sorry. I really admired George and had a lot of respect for him as a character and the sacrifice he had to make at the end was heartbreaking!
Would I Recommend?- Yes

The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald- Again this was another book I really enjoyed, it's quite short but it's a good novel. The character of Gatsby is very mysterious and I liked the narrative tone. I was expecting this to be a difficult read but it turns out that it runs very smoothly and makes a good read. I really want to read another Fitzgerald novel now as I really enjoyed this.
Would I Recommend?- Hell yes

Delirium by Lauren Oliver- I'll admit that I wasn't too much of a fan of this novel. I have already read Matched By Allie Condie and the plot lines are so similar. I liked the main character but I found that she and her male interest in the novel just 'fell in love' too quickly. I really struggled to connect with the characters and over all I just didn't really enjoy it.
Would I recommend?- Not Really

Next Up?
American Psycho - Bret Easton Ellis
Atonement - Ian McEwan
The Shining - Stephen King
