Mini Book Reviews #1

I’ve become obsessed with books again. I want to read all of the time and all I think about is books. Obviously, that will be reflected here on my blog.

This post is the first of a series that you may see popping up every couple of months on this blog. I can’t know how often I will be posting my mini reviews as it depends on how much I’ve been reading. However, I’ll share my mini book reviews whenever I’ve read enough to make a decent post.

Now, onto the mini book reviews…

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson

I’ve never been a huge fan of self-help books but I figured I’d listen to this audiobook. Maybe it’s just that self-help books aren’t for me or maybe this book just sucks, I really don’t know. But anyway, if you want to hear a privileged white man telling you something that you probably already know, then you might like this book.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

This book made me feel every emotion that you could wish for a book to make you feel. I completely fell in love with the story and it made me see the beauty in life again. Anne of Green Gables makes me want to walk through nature, take in the beauty and laugh with a friend. Such a beautiful book.

Rating: ★★★★★

Have We Met? by Camille Baker

I really didn’t know how I felt about this book at first and ultimately I just decided that it was average. Some parts of the story are great and they make you want to never stop reading. However, there’s parts where you just want to scream at the characters and tell them to stop being so stupid. I also wish that we got to find out more about some of the side characters. There was potential for greatness but it just fell slightly short.

Rating: ★★★☆☆

The House with Chicken Legs by Sophie Anderson

The first two chapters of this book were a little confusing. However, I’m so glad that I kept going because this book was great. There were so many plot twists and each one of them made me more excited to keep on reading. This is a middle grade book but I feel like anyone would enjoy it no matter their age.

Rating: ★★★★☆

The Twits by Roald Dahl

Re-reading this book gave me all the childhood nostalgia. I laughed almost as much as I did as a kid and I will always appreciate this story for that. This book isn’t one of Roald Dahl’s best but it’s still wonderful.

Rating: ★★★☆☆

The Girl Who Reads on the Métro by Christine Féret-Fleury

This was quite a lovely little story. I had never heard of it before but I stumbled upon it and noticed that it was a book about books which I would never say no to. This story makes me want to cosy up with a cup of tea, a blanket, and a good books. It’s not the most amazing book in the world but it’s quite a nice comfort read.

Rating: ★★★☆☆

So, those are some of the books that I’ve read recently. I’m looking forward to sharing more of my reads with you in the future.

What’s the best book that you’ve read recently? I love hearing your book recommendations!
