Books Read : 3
In my opinion, there is no better feeling than having a really good reading week after a bunch of mediocre ones.
In the past few weeks, I have really struggled to finish any of the books I have picked up, but luckily it seems that I am back on track and have managed to start and finish three books within the past week, something that I am pretty proud of, not gonna lie.
So about those books…
I started the week off strong by picking up Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan.
I really enjoyed how Percy’s character has already progressed from much from the first novel, I found him to be a lot more relatable. I also really enjoyed how Percy and Annabeth’s relationship developed throughout the novel, it was heart-warming to “witness”. And overall I just really enjoyed the pace the book, there weren’t any chapter that dragged for me, I managed to finish this book in just under two days so it was a fairly quick read.
Once I finished Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monster I was in the mood for a historical romance for some reason for I picked up Until Forever by Johanna Lindsey.
I went into this book fully expecting to enjoy it, as I have all her other novels but boy was I wrong.
Everything about this novel just irritated me. The main character contradicts herself though out the entire novel, it got to the point that I actually despised the main character by the end of the novel. She is portrayed to be a “modern day” woman but has conservative views on everything, She also is meant to be a feminist character but more often than not takes it to the extreme of coming across as hating men. Overall, she is just a highly frustrating character that I really didn’t like.
The novel was also very slow paced with little to no progression in the story line in each chapter. I also felt repetitive at times as the story consistently shifts between several time periods.
The only aspect of the books that I found intriguing was the theory behind time travel within the story, but it also tended to be confusing because I personally feel that that aspect of the story was really built upon, which I feel like it should have been.
Overall I just don’t recommend this novel but I have read many of her other book and really enjoyed them, so rather gives those a shot.
I then finished the week off by reading The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas.
