Pages (56), Days to Read (1), Rating (3/5)

This was a fun little accompaniment to the Harry Potter series. Love how much detail JK Rowling delves into.

This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E_ SmithThis is What Happy Looks Like – Jennifer E. Smith

Pages (416), Days to Read (4), Rating (5/5)

I can imagine this a teen movie, it’s that good. Kinda like a teen version of ‘You’ve Got Mail’.

15th February – 17th February

10425811LIESAL & PO – Lauren Oliver

Pages (307), Days to Read (2), Rating (2/5)

What was Lauren Oliver thinking? This was really awful; a rubbish fairy-tale with really bad characterization. Shame.

10th February – 15th February

Pages (372), Days to Read (5), Rating (5/5)

This book makes me want to travel. We all need an Etienne St. Clair in our lives. I love it!

3rd February – 8th February

How to LoveHOW TO LOVE – Katie Cotugno

Pages (400), Days to Read (6), Rating (3/5)

Really easy read with a testy subject matter )teen pregnancy), just hated Sawyer  (the male lead) . He was too annoying and I just wanted to slap Reena (the female lead), for putting up with him.

January 31st – February 3rd

17571564HYPERBOLE AND A HALF – Allie Brosh

Pages (371), Days to Read (4), Rating (4/5)

A hilarious read, set out like a comic strip. Love Allie’s character, not sure why she looks like a spazzed out shark in the illustrations though. Well worth a read.
