Hello witches or wizards,
How are y’all doing? It’s finally time for my readathon update, just telling you how my reading has been.
I’ve read two books so far, Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
The two of them were great books but if I had to choose I’d say TSHOEH is my favorite of the two. I loved how you learned what it was like to be a woman and part of the LGBTQ+ community in the 1950’s and what it was like behind the scenes of the film business back then. There was a major plot twist in TSHOEH that I did not see coming, I really loved this book, but at one point during one of the marriages it got a little “boring” I wanna say. It’s just that she wasn’t in the film business as much anymore and so I got less interested but there was still this mystery that kept me reading which did not disappoint me at all. And I loved the romance in this book, like, really loved.
My experience with Everything, Everything was totally different but not in a bad way. I had already seen the movie so I knew what was going to happen but it was still worth the read. I’m more attached to this story now that I’ve read the book. I loved Maddy, Olly and Carla. The titles of the mini chapters were great, they were one of the things that just made the book a little better. Just like The Sun Is Also A Star, this was a quick read and the way Maddy sees the world made me think of how beautiful it is.
I changed Beauty Queens with The Opposite of Always because I’m participating in another reading challenge from HWC Fierce Readers Or Not (if you speak French go and check it out 😉 ) and so I can “kill two birds with one stone” I think it is? I’m about 150 pages in and got the feeling I’m going to love it. This book is hilarious, I promise 😉 😀 I haven’t finished it yet (I’m not even half-way through) but I think I’m going to think it’s underrated (if you can follow 😉 ).
That’s it for this update! Let me know in the comments how your readathon is going and if you couldn’t participate just let me know how your reading is overall!
