Books in August

On the first of each month I am going to do a post to show the books that I read in the last month… Just so I can show what I thought and to see how many I read! So here we go…

The Time Traveler’s Wife – Audrey Niffenegger
The Cuckoo’s Calling – Robert Galbraith/J.K. Rowling
The Travel Auction – Mark Green

Shoe Strings – Christy Hayes // About A Boy – Nick Hornby

I did a review earlier this month on The Time Traveler’s Wife (here!), and I really enjoyed it!

I only found out about The Cuckoo’s Calling when it was discovered that J.K. Rowling was the author, and I’m glad I bought it because I really loved it! It’s the sort of book that I do like to read, and it kept me guessing. I actually wasn’t expecting the ending!

The Travel Auction and Shoe Strings were found on Amazon in the free books. The Travel Auction was really different, and I liked how the story was told. It’s definitely worth a read! Shoe Strings was kind of your typical romance novel, with a little twist to add the extra. Yes, parts were obvious and you knew what would happen, but don’t you always?! I love a good romance novel, no matter how repetitive they can get!

Finally, About A Boy… I just read this for the first time and I loved it! The film is good, but the book is so much better!

Five books this month – more than I thought actually! I read Shoe Strings in a day though, when I went to Wembley for the challenge cup! Nearly 10 hours on a coach helps with reading…
