uncommon readerThe Uncommon Reader – Alan Bennett

Pages (120), Days to Read (1), Rating (5/5)

A charming and witty tale you could read in one sitting. Such a cute little ‘what if?’ kind of tale.

blackoutBlackout – Emily Barr

Pages (77), Days to Read (1), Rating (5/5)

This psychological thriller had me gripped from beginning to end. It’s a great quick read.

9780142410707_custom-937c8a14ae3737ec420c733288cba59afd9f1ce3-s6-c30An Abundance of Katherines – John Green

Pages (215), Days to Read (4), Rating (4/5)

This was by far the worst John Green experience I’ve had and I found Colin, the main character really annoying .  It’s only saving grace was the quirky storyline



1st March – 5th March

How They Met and other Stories -David Levithan

Pages (307), Days to Read (5), Rating (3/5)

This made for some uncomfortable reading at times and I found I very difficult to identify with some of the characters, but I love David Levithan’s writing style.

24th February – 1st March

gabGabriel’s Angel – Mark A. Radcliffe

Pages (291), Days to Read (6), Rating (4/5)

This is an emotional rollercoaster read. Loved the idea of angels running therapy sessions in the space between heaven and hell.
