Book Review: YOU by Caroline Kepnes

YOU_300wide1“When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.AA

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.”

Book Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

16101128“After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors? To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes until she meets Evan Walker.

Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother-or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.”

🍁🍂 September TBR Wrap-up!🍃🍂

Hello!!

Last month I set myself a goal of reading 5 books that I recently brought when splurging at Dymocks. Last month I only got around to reading one full book and three quarters of another. This was mainly due to being very busy at Uni with assessments and what not. I’m disappointed really that I didn’t get to read the books I told myself I would read last month, so this month I’m going to just give myself 3 books, just so I can achieve this goal during the October month.

The books that I read fully was ‘Ugly Love’ by Colleen Hoover (Book Review can be found here!). This books was a little disappointing to me, It was very hyped up so when I brought it I was trusting all the reviews of this book from either bookstagram or goodreads and didn’t end up reading the blurb, so I had no clue what it was about until I opened it up and started reading (yeah I know, I’m a bit silly). Don’t get me wrong, parts of this book made me laugh and smile like a weirdo when I read it, but it was just a little confusing and in certain parts I just wanted to scream at the characters because they got on my nerves. However, I did rate this book a 4/5 stars and I do recommend that you read it, however read the blurb and see if you like that first!!

The second book I’m still reading is ‘The Assassins Blade’ by Sarah J. Maas. This book is good so far, however I’m getting really distracted whilst reading it. I only end up reading a few chapters then leaving it (this would be mainly because I have been hooked on the series ‘Tomorrow when the war began’ by John Marsden and seriously can’t put it down right now) However this book has been pretty good. I love the characters, especially Sam, like seriously *insert love heart eyes emoji here* and the main characters is also quite an awesome character. A full book review will be published later when I finish the book (which hopefully won’t be too long)

Thank you for reading!

Octobers TBR will be up on my blog very soon (hopefully tomorrow!)

Book Review: Ugly Love – Colleen Hoover

51SUqssIb2L

 “When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up.

He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her. Never ask about the past. Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all. Hearts get infiltrated. Promises get broken. Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly
.”
