Personally, I’m not necessarily a Sci-Fi fan. I’m not a Sci-Fi fan at all but I still gave this one a shot. I have a friend that usually recommends me really good books so I followed his advice when he told me that I HAVE to read this one.
One of the best literary choices I have ever made was picking up Dark Matter by Blake Crouch.
If you want to know a page-turner, this is the one. I literally had to have some self control and not read it too fast. I had to slow down and read only like a few chapters a day, but that didn’t work as expected… I passed my limit… a lot of times.
*takes a deep breath*
You know from the beginning that this is going to be an awesome experience. It makes a statement from the first pages and you don’t forget it very easily. I’ve never read a book that involved time travelling before and I would start with this one all over again if I could. This was one of the cases when I wished I could delete the memory of a book and then reread it.
I would also like to bring out the fact that Blake is really smart and you can clearly see that by the way he organized the plot and his writing. The plot has tangles and twists and turns but you will never feel like that. He knows how to make the readers UNDERSTAND, and that’s super important since many times a good book can leave the reader unsatisfied because by the end you still can’t get anything that happened in it.
I haven’t read a lot of books in december but even if I did, I don’t think I would pick a better one than Trevor’s biography.
I promise you will fall in love with it. You don’t even have to know him or be a huge fan (I know I wasn’t… I didn’t even know who he is) but that book is one of my favorite nonfiction books.
Totally recommend. To read my review, click on the title of the book.
I can’t believe I get all the feels when I see this one on the shelf. All the Bright Places. It made me cry and it made me so sad I just couldn’t get over it for a while. It was just like I was in her place and his death happened in real life. I also really thought Finn could make an awesome boyfriend and I got attached to him I don’t even know how. FINN DESERVED BETTER, JENNIFER! Maybe if something this tragic wouldn’t have happened I wouldn’t have loved him this much but I really believe it would’ve been better for all the readers if he wouldn’t have died and make this beautiful “poetry” out of it. Like it wasn’t enough that he was dead he kept being awesome even after he died. This one’s a page turner alright?!
George Orwell’s 1984 all the way. I bought it and then I read it and I read it again and I skimmed it afterwards. It destroyed me and I loved it and I made all my friends read it so they will be destroyed too and everyone was happy and it all went well. You should go read it too now. Seriously. I’m not a fan of politics or anything like that but THIS ONE IS A GEM!!
I thought I’m gonna have a heart attack or faint or something. THAT’S HOW MUCH I LOVE COLLEEN HOOVER’S BOOKS.
I think it is pretty clear, since this is a Colleen Hoover book, that I’ve read it in a few hours. I found myself in the same situation as “I don’t know what to read, I’m gonna get myself a cup of Colleen Hoover” which turned into 2 cups cause I HAD to read the next one too because I didn’t calm down with it.
I love both Layken and Will. I love Will more though, he kinda reminds me of Jim Halpert’s character from The Office. Always funny and cute and smart.
I was impressed by the idea of slamming. I didn’t know that it is actually a thing, initially I thought Colleen came up with the idea but afterwards I found out that people are actually doing it. And I love it. Also, I think it was awesome that Colleen actually wrote the slams the characters performed and I loooved theeeem!
Colleen has some really awesome ideas, like the glass vase full of life tips stars to help them when they need it the most when they won’t have anyone else besides them and their brothers (and Will’s grandparents).
By the end of the book my chest was aching. Literally. And then I couldn’t stop thinking about them. And then I’ve read the second book. Review to come.
