Another Day, Another Book

The Fault in Our Stars was incredible. I finished reading it the other day and I am so glad that I picked it up. To be honest, when I saw the book in Indigo, I didn't really know how the story was going to be told exactly, or what the story actually was. I read the first two lines and for whatever reason, just the way it was written, I knew that I had to give it a chance. I love John Green's style of writing ... I mean, I figure I must as he caught my attention with less than ten words. I would try and describe the book to you all here, but I could never do it justice. Just know that I laughed, I cried (embarrassing) ... it was so sweet and so funny and so honest and so sad. It was more than just a story about two kids with cancer .. so, just go pick it up. It's definitely worth the read.

Today, I am starting the book, Life of Pi. I needed a new book to read and my sister had this one lying around. To be honest, I'm not really sure what it's supposed to be about. I know it has something to do with a trip to India and that's about it. So many people have been talking about how amazing this book is, so I just needed to see for myself. It was written by a Canadian author and he references Toronto and different landmarks in the book, so that will be interesting for me. It is also now a major motion picture and I figure, they don't just turn crappy stories into movies (or do they?).

  1. I read Life of Pi in high school for summer reading one year, and I loved it. The beginning is a little weird and kinda boring. But once you get through the introduction it's awesome! I hope you like it because it really is an amazing book.

  4. The Fault in Our Stars is on my winter reading list as well. Actually, it's waiting for me at the library so I'll be starting on it soon. I've heard really amazing things about Life of Pi and would probably prefer to read the book also, because movies rarely do the book justice.

    You have a lovely blog, btw.
