Since Im new to the whole WordPress blog thingy, I’m not exactly sure how I’m going to go about doing this. I’m going to try doing it a certain way and we’ll see if it works.I read a total of 11 books and reviewed 4 of these so let’s get into this.

1.The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters

Goodreads

My Rating:4/5 stars.

One Thing I  Liked About It: The romance between two women in the midst of the the early 20s

One Thing I Disliked About it: The lack of direction, and the open ending that kind of made me wonder what the whole point of the book was.

2.The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley

Goodreads

My rating:5/5 stars

One Thing I Liked About it: The rawness  of the story, and how the narrator dealt with his grief

One Thing I Disliked About it: The  love interest was underdeveloped, and didn’t have much depth to him.

3.Lies You Wanted To Hear by James Whitfield Thomson

Goodreads

My Rating:4/5 Stars

One Thing I liked About it: The topic of parents fighting over their children and how out of control it can get.

One Thing I disliked About It: The fact that most of the characters were extremely misguided

4. Paul Dans le Nord by Paul Rabagliati

Goodreads

My Rating:4/5 Stars

One Thing I liked About it:The fact that it was set close to where I live and mentioned places I knew

One Thing I disliked About it: There was really no plot, and no drive to it. It was just about teenage angst.

5.More Happy Than Not By Adam Silvera

Goodreads

My Review

My Rating:5/5 Stars

One Thing I liked About it:The way the story was constructed, and the carefully built plot twist that blew me away.

One Thing I disliked about it:I can’t really think of anything, but the sadness that this book caused me wasn’t very fun.

6.Hominids by Robert J Sawyer.

Goodreads

My Rating:4/5 Stars

One Thing I Liked About it:The idea of two parallel worlds, one of humans and one of neanderthal

One Thing I Disliked About it:The initial confusion especially when reading about the neanderthals.

7. Smoke by Ellen Hopkins

Goodreads

Rating:4/5 stars

What I Liked About It:The sense of closure that Patty finally got after so much suffering.

What I Disliked:The way the verse was worded in certain parts, sometimes I found it flowed quite awkwardly and just read like prose in poem format.

8.Half Bad by Sally Green.

Goodreads

Review

Rating:4/5 Stars

What I Liked About It: The characters.

What I Disliked About it:The Plot and the direction in which the story is going.

10.A Room Swept White by Sophie Hannah

Goodreads

Goodreads

Review

What I Liked About It:How enrapturing it was, and the big reveal at the end.
