The Unpopular Opinions BookTag | Or A Fun Way to Disagree!

I’ve been going through my huge list of pending tags, trying to pick something for this week and it felt like the perfect time to ramble and present before the Internet all of my unpopular opinions! (Who doesn’t like to do that?!)

Thank you, Ida@CassiopeiasMoon for tagging me! (it was quite a long time ago) But I am finally here to give my very controversial answers. Her reading tastes are the best! Make sure to check out her blog and also the Unpopular Opinions Book Tag. Continue reading “The Unpopular Opinions BookTag | Or A Fun Way to Disagree!”

March Wrap Up

For me, March was not the best reading month, was always busy at work and at uni and it was hard to squeeze some time for reading in between. But I figured out that I tend to read way more when I have an e-book either on my tablet or on my phone (usually on my phone), as I travel a lot during the week it is easier to pull out your phone and keep reading, sometimes even in classes (don’t tell anyone please!).

I’ve read a total of 7 books and I DNF’d one..

  1. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
  2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
  3. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  4. Stardust by Neil Gaiman (and even watched a movie)
  5. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
  6. Kill School: Slice by Karen Carr
  7. Runes by Ednah Walters

Haruki Murakami just wasn’t for me. His short stories told me nothing and it was too boring to continue reading. I am not completely giving up on his writing but I might wait until a more appropriate set of mind before giving him another  chance.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and Kill School by Karen Carr were by far my most favorite books this month. Karen Carr is already working on a sequel and I cannot wait for the next book!

Hope this month brought you some very good reads as well. I would love to know what you’ve read last month and what you are currently reading. Let me know in the comments below.

Book vs Movie: Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Book: Stardust
Author: Neil Gaiman
Publisher: АСТ Москва
Year: 2009
Rating: ★★★ / 5

It was a light easy read, a true fairytale. For some reason its simple storyline, naive characters, subtle romance, magic world and creatures made me very happy.

I wish I would have a physical copy of this book (I read it as an e-book) so I’d be able to bookmark every page that made me smile or just feel bubbly and childish so every time I have a bad day I’d go back and reread those quotes or pages to become a kid for just a little bit, believing in a good versus evil battle where the difference between black and white is crystal clear.

The book tells us a story of Tristran Thorn, a naive (as he seemed to me) young boy, his journey to prove his unending love for a beautiful girl, going through different adventures as he wandered in a mystical world, meeting magical creatures, some good some bad, some friends some foes.
