December Wrap Up

Hey there dears! Today’s post will be about books I’ve read in December and a few details about new projects coming up this year. For most of us, 2017 was a hell of a year. With goods and bads, I think we all succeeded in most of our goals.

As for me, last year was more about changes, trying new things, adapting to new situations, and things that turned my life 180 degrees.Enough said about that, now let’s get on our desired topic, a small December wrap-up:

  1. Mindy Kaling – Why not me? -> I knew Mindy K. from a TV Series I was watching: The Mindy Project, which I like it and still watching it. When I saw she has this book released, I wanted to read it. The details found in the book were more than enough for me to change my opinion about her and Hollywood personas as well. She is kind of frank with most of the situations and I enjoyed that. It is more like a journal where you can read about her career’ struggling, her behavior, and much more. This was a 4 out of 5 stars.
  2. Samuel Bjork – I’m traveling alone -> Crimes, serial killer, mystery, thriller, and so on. I must say that, from all the books that have so many tags, this one respected them with every page and line. The details of the crime scenes, the lives of the protagonists, the chapters’ complexity, are all on point. I really liked it and most of the time I’ve felt like I was right there, next to them. The story itself might be a bit harsh for some of you, as the killer has as target young 6 years old girls. Now, this book is the first one of a series, and I can hardly wait to read the other one too. Hope I won’t be disappointed. This was a 4.8 out of 5 stars.
  3. Deborah Bee – The last thing I remember -> Apparently, there are many books where the main character is in a coma and hearing is all they have left. It’s written from 2 points of view. As the police are trying to figure out what happened, fractions of the action itself are mixed with forgotten situations the protagonists went into. Abuse in at least 3 forms, a murder, a secret life. The ending, as you can imagine, is when the protagonist is saying the first words. This book, not only that gives you mixed feelings but also makes you lose your minds. You can guess how it will end, who did the murder, and so on, but until the last page, you will go through a lot of details you don’t need, absurd situations, and confusing or nonsense lines. Too bad, because the idea was good, but the way the story was written was not a success. This was a 3 out of 5 stars.
  4. Nicola Yoon – Everything, everything -> I almost feel bad for the feelings I have. Not only that I saw this book as a weird combination of the movie Bubble boy and the Taylor Swift – “You belong to me” clip, but I also think it was a bit too cheesy. I waited for this book for so long, but what I’ve read disappointed me way too much. I think it is overrated. As for the movie (cause I thought it will be better than the book) I was so angry when the lines were mixed, the story was different, and the essential parts were omitted. It was a failure and I do believe is one of the most popular books that everyone loved it and I hated for the bottom of my heart. This was a hardly 2.7 out of 5 stars.

As you can see, December was a bit of a meh for me. But hoping this month will be better. As I promised you, I do have some news for you. I saw you guys enjoyed reading my lifestyle articles, habits I was writing about, and other things related or not to books. So, I will bring them back. Also, this year the blog will come to its final appearance. And, as always, if you have any topic you want to discuss, any suggestion, let me know and I will make sure the post will be a special one. Stay tuned and see you next time.
