This week is Books You Feel Differently About. Maybe you thought about it and decided to change your rating, or you reread it and liked it more or less the second time around.
This book was hyped up for me and though I didn’t know exactly what to expect, I was left a bit disappointed. It was a really quick read that I kind of liked while reading it, but when it ended I remember thinking, that’s all? After thinking about it some more, I can appreciate the book for what it is. It explores the delicate relationships that can be found between a mother and a daughter. Most women can relate to fragility and complication that mother/daughter relationships are often fraught with.
Who hasn’t heard of this one? Yet another book that was hyped as the next Gone Girl. After I finished this one I rated it 4 stars, but looking back I think this is more of a 3 star read for me. Ani is just bitchy and there were really no epic secrets revealed for me. Even the main twist didn’t leave me as shocked and stunned as the description promised.
John Greene as author is over hyped for me and the more I think about Paper Towns the more unimpressed I am. At first, I thought, oh this book was ok. Now? Nope, wouldn’t recommend it, there are far too many other excellent YA books out there. It was just bizarre and frankly I was bored reading most of this. I did like Ben though, the only good part of this book.
I only rated this book a 3 originally but now I would bump it up to a 4. I read several of Sparks’ books consecutively and this was the latest one. I think by the time I got to See Me I was just over it. I had read 4 or 5 of his books in a row and if you’ve read anything from him, you know that his books are a bit formulamatic and altogether predictable. But I have to give him some more credit, he really knows how to write a fantastic contemporary romance. I was just burnt out on his books when I read this one
