Inferno – Dan Brown

Every addicted Dan Brown fan must read. Or should I say it is a must read for every addicted Robert Langdon fan. I loved the book but of course after reading Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code, the bar is set outrageously high for this author.

Personally I have read a bunch of reviews on this book particularly but well personally I am every into Dan Browns way of storytelling and the intense research he does on the subject he is writing about. I admire how well he gets the details of artwork, symbols and places he writes about.

Sienna was a character I liked in the beginning but was a bit hesitant to like, and I was right about that in the end. It is a book worth wile reading, but I would reccomend it to people that do enjoy Dan Browns storytelling style and have read at least one of his previous books. As I have read on the internet it might not be the ideal book for everyone but it was entertaining and kept me on my toes waiting for the next exciting event to take place.

I cannot wait till the next Dan Brown book comes out, even though I hope they do not film a movie of this book because I hate all the movies. No offense Tom Hanks! I just envisioned it differently and I don’t think the movies capture the essence of the stories.
Overall ratting: 3,5/5

Have a great weekend!

The Scarecrow – Michael Connelly

I couldn’t be more excited to review what might be one of my all time favorite Michael Connelly books. I don’t be biased because I have read a couple of reviews on Goodreads about this book but those comments still won’t change MY opinion of the book which is that its an

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G book.

Scarecrow is the second Jack McEvoy the first being my all time favorite Michael Connelly novel “The Poet”, which is quite weird because my favorite character is Harry Bosch. ❤️

Quite astonishing that my favorite novel from my favorite author isn’t about my favorite character.

Continuing…..

Jack is getting kicked out of the newspaper due to his age and being replaced by a beautiful young reporter, he agrees to train her inorder to stay an extra week at the newspaper to finish up a story on a murder he just received… The book starts off slow like every other one but eventually it hooks you so much you can’t stop. And Jack reminds me of Michael Connelly sometimes (michael was also a journalist before he started writing books), but I know Michael says that Harry is more like him and puts all his life experiences in that character. Connelly makes his novels real, what’s happening in the world most likely will be included in his novels. I think I enjoy this authors work so much because its so real. I really have no frustrations concering this book… (Well they haven’t made a movie yet hahah)

Overall ratings: 5/5

Have a lovely weekend and a great day!

Paper Towns – John Green

The latest book on my “I have read” list is: Paper Towns by John Green. I have read “the fault in our stars” last year while it was a hype all around the world and I enjoyed the book. With that book it was most certain that the ending wouldn’t be “happy”, but the storyline is cute and very inspiring. Well let me continue about the book at hand which is “Paper Towns” this summers new hype. The storyline of this book starts off fun with a night with Margot that “Q” (aka Quentin the main character of the book) will never forget. After this night the book gets all mysterious as Margot disappears.

SPOILERS Do not continue reading if you do not want to know things that happen in the book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am warning you !!!!!!!

Do you really want to do this….

Yeah sure go ahead but I warned you there would be spoilers…

What really made me frustrated during basically the entire book is that no one other than Q seemed to (excuse my language) give a shit about the girl who disappeared, this kids in high school prefered planning their outfits for PROM rather than FINDING the girl that DISAPPEARED (ran away) not even her parents went to find her or even tried. Okay okay I get she ran away various time and after you cry wolf all the time people start not believing you but even if she is of legal age and therefore in the eyes of the law a adult that choose to run away, you would think any parent would still feel obligated to find their child. These were my initial frustrations which occurred throughout the entire book, the final frustrating moment came at the end when Q and his friends find Margot in someplace near New York and she ends up not leaving with Q even though she clearly likes him now. This ending got me thinking that Mr. Green does not enjoy writing happy ends.

Overall it was a good book, I still prefer “The Fault in our Stars” but that is my personal opinion of course. I have yet to watch the movie but will post my reactions on that movie once I watch it.

My overall rating for this book is: 3 Stars

 As always thank you for reading and have a wonderful day!

Identity Crisis? Or not!

identity_crisis-291x300

There are times, like right now. When I don’t know who I am anymore. It’s a feeling of lose. I’ve always had these. One day I know who I am, and I’m a confident and happy person. Other days I don’t what I’m doing with my life and just want to quit everything and start over.

Identity crises are normal for people my age, at least that’s what they tell me. It’s normal to not know what you want to do in life. There are people that born knowing they want to be a doctor or a ballerina, I’ve wanted to be both and none of them stuck. I hate seeing blood and I’m a good dancer. I have these crazy ideas. Stories that I should write down, songs I should compose before I forget the words. I sometimes tell myself: I’ll write it down later… But then you forget the story or the song. I love music, always have and when I was younger I wanted to be a singer. Until I discovered I couldn’t sing, so I decided to write songs instead. Write songs down and try to sell them to famous singers. I even wrote David Foster an e-mail, he never wrote me back. So after that I kind of stopped.

It was stupid of me to stop. You should never stop doing something you love, it breaks you. Leaves you questioning who you want to be and who you are.

So I stopped writing songs (not really) and started writing other things. I remember in third grade when my writing teacher told me I was creative and had such great ideas. At the time it didn’t matter to me. I hated reading when I was younger and writing wasn’t something I saw myself doing. But look at me now…

New Nicholas Sparks Book

 

Nicholas Sparks just announced that he has a new novel coming out. (YEEAAAAAHH) I am a huge fan and am very anxious to read his new book. I only hope it’s not like the last one – The Best of Me. I didn’t like it, maybe it was just because it didn’t end the way I wanted it too. I actually started reading because of Nicholas Sparks. The Notebook was my first favorite book and after reading it, there was no way to stop me. 

I guess could say Nicholas Sparks made me the book junkie I am today and for that I will be forever great full for.

I actually have various favorite Authors, but nowadays I am a huge Michael Connelly fan. I have almost every single book and simply love Harry Bosch.

Most people would say I’m crazy for loving books so much, but I don’t care. Reading a book is like flying, or entering a new world.  Every Book is different every Author writes different. It’s always very interesting to read a classic and then read a NY Times Bestseller from now. The language is different. The styles have changed.

I love reading, do you?
