A book you love (or three!)
In January I set myself a book challenge to read eight new books. So far I have to admit that I haven’t read any of them. However I have picked up three new books I want to tell you about.
The first one is The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I recently had a conversation with a friend who suggested reading the book before watching the film. The book has a depressing feel about it but you slowly get into the thoughts process of the main character. Not the best book I’ve ever read but now intrigued to see the film. I just hope the film is more gripping then reading the book. I personally not a great fan of fiction books, prefer to read real life story. Taking on the recommendation, it was good but I wouldn’t rush to pick up my Kindle and make an effort to read it again.
The second one is Talking as fast as I can by Lauren Graham. I’ve spoke about this book before in my blog post about what I got for Christmas. I love the show Gilmore Girls, it’s always my go to show, when I need picking me up. But I genuinely enjoyed this. It was a fun, quick read, made even more fun by Lauren’s narration. I wish it had been longer but I’ll take what I can get. Lauren basically is real-life Lorelai Gilmore. The end does leave me on a cliffhanger thinking is there going to be more Gilmore Girls and what does Lauren Graham really want to do.
The third book is a strange one, but it’s Stick Man by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler. The last few times I have been visiting my nephews, Josh the oldest has watched a 30mins long animation called Stick Man. Unknown to me, it’s a book he loves and one he made my mum read to him several times whilst visiting earlier this month. I watched the animation, I thought I need to read this. Yes you guessed it, I downloaded it onto my Kindle and read the book. As a fan of Each Peach Pear Plum and the Postman books. I found this one to be fun and one I will love to read to Josh and Eoin one day.
