A small list

While I have a few many books to review, and some of them from a few (or more) weeks ago, I thought I would do some mini-reviews. If you want to read the synopsis of the books – click on the picture and I’ll send you somewhere where you get to read it.

The Gost and the Goth – Stacey Kade
I was actually a little disappointed when I started reading this novel. I thought that it would be more humour in it. It was a nice read in the end, but not what I had expected. Maybe the next book in this series is better. This is the first book in a trilogy.

Heist Society – Ally Carter
It is always nice to read a story from a thief’s point of view (as long as it is a nice thief). I think I am going to re-read this novel quite soon because I do not remember as much as I would like of it. I have not decided whether I will read it in Swedish or English this time, though. Liked this more than I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You, also by Ally Carter. This novel feels like it’s written for slightly older people than the other one and therefore, the writing style is a bit different. Am looking forward reading the sequel Uncommon Criminals (after I have re-read this one).

Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins
I have read really good reviews on this novel. Everybody seems to love it. I did not think it was that amazing, but it was a really nice read and I am quite sure that I will read it again. Definitely a book worth reading. It is cosy, easy read and just cosy. I love that Anna’s hamster (I think it is a hamster? ) is called Captain Jack. A Doctor Who reference? Or Jack Sparrow?

Meet Me at the Cupcake Café – Jenny Colgan
There was a lot of cupcakes in this one. Tempted to try to make one of the recepies, but will have to google a bit first while I’m not using the same measures. This novel has a slow pace, quite nice. Even though I though it almost was a little too slow in the beginning, if I remember correctly. Easy read feel-good novel. With lots of cupcakes.

Abandon – Meg Cabot
I am not really sure what I think about this book. Firstly, I’m not really sure what it was about. Well, I got the idea; the girl who dies and then comes back to life. But I did not really get the point with it. It did not feel like that much happened. I prefer Meg Cabot’s other books.

Shatter Me – Tahereh Mafi
The idea with not able to touch anyone is interesting. Felt like it took some time before the novel started going forward, though. Liked the end better than the first half of the book. It will be interesting to see how Tahereh Mafi continues this series.

En sån där vidrig bok där mamman dör – Sonya Sones
Gillar hur den här boken är skriven. Den är skriven på någon form av vers vilket gör den både speciell och snabbläst. Först trodde jag att det faktum att den var skriven på vers skulle dra ned känslan på boken lite, att det skulle vara stor skillnad till en “vanlig” bok. Så var det inte. Tycker om Sonya Sones sätt att skriva och jag ser fram emot att få läsa fler böcker som liknar denna.
