January Wrap Up

Hello Again!

For this blog post I’ve decided to tell you all about the books I read in January, which to be honest wasn’t a lot (Oops), Being back in college definitely takes a chunk of your reading time.

A Little In Love!

The first book I read this year was “A Little in Love” by Susan Fletcher which I really enjoyed, This book is very interesting re-telling of Les Mis from Eponines’ point of view. You can find a full review here: https://booksbeforeboy.wordpress.com/2016/01/04/a-little-in-love-review/

I gave this book 5/5 stars on Goodreads.

 

The Secret Garden!

Next I went back to my childhood by reading “The Secret Garden” by Francesca Hodgsen Burnett, which was my secret Santa present this year. This was one of my favourite books as a child and even though I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as when I was younger I really enjoyed re living my youth in this book. Which does contain a beautiful story and I would still recommend it.

I gave this book 5/5 stars on goodreads (Though some of those stars were out of loyalty)

 

The Storied Life Of A.J Fikry.

This is still one of my absolute favourite books and I’m sure my friends are sick of hearing me rave about it (I actually bought a few copies for friends and family over Christmas!) Everyone needs to read this book. I don’t want to hype it up this much (Too Late) so if your interested you can read my full review here :  https://booksbeforeboy.wordpress.com/2016/01/23/the-storied-life-of-a-j-fikry-review/

I, of course gave this book 5/5 stars.

 

The last three books I read this year were actually plays, two of which I had to read for college but they still count right? I’m saying yes.

The first play I read was “The Chairs” by  Eugène Ionesco. Which although it had some nice moments overall I just found it nonsensical and a little bit irritating . I gave this play 3/5 stars.

Next I read “Anne of Green Gables: The musical” by Norman Campbell. This play is based on the book by L.M Montgomery and I was surprised to say I actually enjoyed it though I do think it would be more suitable for a younger audience.  I also gave this play 3/5 stars.

Finally I read “Six characters in search of an author” by Luigi Pirandello, which is comical in some areas but overall I didn’t enjoy this play I found it too drawn out and boring. I gave this play 2/5 stars.
