So I guess my new years resolution is to always have a book on the go and write blog posts. I got given an Amazon voucher for christmas and I do enjoy reading and really benefit from it so i purchased some books. One of the books I bought is called “I Let You Go”, written by Clare Mackintosh. I don’t really how I came about deciding to pick this book but let me just start by saying its super depressing.
Looking back at it now, the title is pretty depressing but I didn’t really connect the dots. Its about a tragic accident and about the investigation and the characters situation about how she deals with this accident. I’m about half way through and I really want to continue because I’m optimistic that its got some crazy twist right at the end, but my god its so morbid. Its written well and I like the characters.(sometimes I just don’t like a certain name or character and it puts me off the whole book). I’m just not in to the really sad stories… Im just thinking in my head whilst I kind of read, man this is so sad, I don’t want to be sad, why am I reading this again?
So in conclusion, I’m going to continue reading it BUT also get another book on the go. The next one in line is…”The Girl On The Train”, by Paula Hawkins. This books shaping up to have a lot more mystery and really anything could happen. (I’m gathering all of this from the brief description on the back). So I’m going to start The Girl On The Train immediately. Not right this very minute because I’m writing this post at 2:34am after an 8 hours shift.
The final book I’d like to touch on is one that my mother suggested I read called “Intervention” by Julian May, she basically said it’s a fabulous science fiction book and she thinks I’d rather enjoy. I’ve never actually read a science fiction book before as I’m definitely more visual in general but my favourite genre of film is science fiction because It’s just so visually satisfying, for me anyway.
So yeah thats where I’m at with my books.
