|second library read!!|
SOOOO WEEKEND READS IS BACK!! I've been on-and-off in blogging in the past month or so. But while I'm not making promises, I'm here! I just borrowed my second library reads which is Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I've been eyeing this one since last semester and now I have it! I'm hoping to finishing it this weekend or early this coming week (because uni library sucks. it only has two days of lending.. ugh.. why?).
Challenger Deep | Neal Shusterman
When I came across this book months before it was released, I got suuuuuper excited. Because why not? It's Neal Shusterman. And every time I come across a Neal Shusterman book in the bookstore, I immediately pick it up (that's how rare Neal Shusterman is in here). ANYWAY, I was suuuuper scared to pick up Challenger Deep. I've read nothing but positive things about it! Reviews like that scare me a bit because what if I fail them and end up being a black sheep? The pressure, friends! BUT good thing is, it worked for me. Here's a brief 'review' because I won't be posting a separate one for this:
Challenger Deep started in a really interesting yet odd way for me. There's an alternating setting in Caden Bosch's mind (like the blurb!!): the actual world (earth to Caden!!) and the ship heading to the Challenger Deep. I really LOVED how it was written -- the anxiety, the description, Caden's own little world. I'm a big admirer of Shusterman's writing and how well he slowly develops his character and how slowly and surely he reveals everything about his world. It was just PERFECT!
I marveled that people could live so close [...] and yet be completely isolated. #ChallengerDeep— czai (@czai_) July 26, 2016
Bury This | Andrea Portes
My one and only Andrea Portes book. I wasn't interested in her other books (those contemporary books that sound like highschool drama which is an immediate no-go for me). ANYWAY, I finally finish this today. Here's my quick thoughts: I like the writing. There's not much description at what's literally going on. You have to realize what's happening base on what they think about it. (GAAAHH!! why is this difficult to talk about!?!?! WHY? I'll have a separate review for this. I promise!!). The mystery was slowly revealed. Not much thrill in here, for me though.
Genesis Girl (Blank Slate #1) | Jennifer Bardsley
I really like the concept of this book: there's a 'school' in which people are raised to turn away from the internet. Because you know... it's evil... and it kills you... apparently internet addiction is a thing and it's not a good thing because it kills you... Right now, I do not know where this story will actually go. Maybe breaking the whole 'Vestal' system (Vestals are those who has NEVER used or gone to the internet)? Let's see...
Big Little Lies | Liane Moriarty
Literally just started this. I'm a couple of chapters up and it's really intriguing.
Have you, friends, read this? What do you think? :)
Zodiac (Zodiac #1) | Romina Russell
Just because it's been sitting in my shelf for so long... Have you read this? What do you think of it?
There Once Were Stars | Melanie McFarlane
For a blog tour mid-August. I can't remember what this is about though. Which I honestly prefer. I think it's contemporary though :)
