erychan86: (Real Life: Books)
Last year I set my Goodreads Challenge to 30 books.... When I reached my goal I set it up to 36 and I ended up with 40 (38 plus a short story and a graphic novel) I set my goal at 30 again this year, but I will probably change it down the line! Thing is I am starting with a book that is 606 pages long! So I feel a little bit overwhelmed already LOL!

I'll soon do either the book meme or a personal top 5 of the books I've read this year (and I'll do the same for shows and movies probably), but for now: Here's what I've read this month:




Lord of the Flies
Originally published: 1954
Author: William Golding
Genre: Classic
(reading time Nov 27 - Dec 18)
★★★★
A great classic! I loved going back reading some of these books this year! This is another heavy one! A book that must be read multiple times on our lives to allow us to reflect on something very important about the human kind. I'm glad I did it this year, I'll probably come back to this book again later on in my life!




The Princess Diarist
Originally published: October 18th 2016
Author: Carrie Fisher
Genre: Non Fiction / Autobiography
(reading time: Dec 19- Dec 23)
★★★★
I wanted to put my hands on this book as soon as I've heard the rumor Carrie was writing it... I have to confess I was way too interested in the truth about her and Harrison, especially if given in the form of diary pages written by a 19 year old Carrie...

I enjoyed this book more that I expected... I wasn't after all expecting a lot of details about how they did it, when they did it, how many times, how was it,... but I appreciate the way it was written. I've never read anything from Fisher and I enjoyed her way of telling stories, she's - as much as this adjective might sound weird when used for her - candid... she tells you thing for what they are... she seems True to herself and to her fans...

The Little Bookshop on the Corner
Originally published: Feb 11th, 2016
Author: Jenny Colgan
Genre: Fiction
(reading time: Dec 24 - Dec 31)
★★★★
This was a surprisingly good read! A very light book, highly recommended. The characters are very enjoyable and feel quite real and have layers! I enjoyed the dialogue and the whole narrative. A very good book!

I wasn't expecting the romance and I wasn't expecting it to happen that way! The only "negative thing" I can say is: I felt the end was a little bit rushed, 50 more pages would have not hurt to explore a little bit more Nina's situation in the romantic department... It feels like it happened too fast and it wasn't properly trigged!

But it was a good book and I really enjoyed it! I will read more about this author!
