October Wrap Up

Another month has come and gone and another month of me trying to get over my slump has passed. I think I did quite well this month with my reading and I feel like I am getting back to my old book obsessed self.

Paperbacks and hardcovers:

1. ”Kui tuvid kadusid” by Sofi Oksanen

You might know this book as ”When the Doves Disappeared”. This book confused me. It was just so weirdly written and pretty much every five seconds or so I would lose my train of thought. It took me like two weeks to read this book so it was definitely hard to get through. I gave it a 2,5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.

2. ”Juudit” by A.H.Tammsaare

This play was amazing! I was really surprised because usually Tammsaare’s work is not something that really appeals to me, but I loved this. It was brilliantly written and I read it through twice…so I think you can see just how good it was. Loved discussing this in Literature and I seriously hope that all the other books we are going to read are this good. I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.

3. ”Marina” by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

I love the way Zafon writes. It’s so beautiful and thrilling. ”Marina” definitely didn’t come anywhere near ”The Shadow of the Wind” but it was really interesting and I did enjoy reading it. I started writing a review but I have writer’s block now for some reason so it will be up a bit later. I gave this book a 4,5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.

4. ”When We Were Animals” by Joshua Gaylord

This book was disturbing. Like, reading this made me feel so uncomfortable for some reason and I cannot say that it is a totally bad thing, but I then again feel like I cannot say that I loved this book. It was good and I do recommend people check this book out, especially if you are into coming-of-age stories. I gave this a 3,25 stars out of 5 on Goodreads.

So I think it is no surprise when I say that my favourite book of the month was: ”Juudit” by Tammsaare. It was just too good for words.

My least favourite book of the month sadly is: ”Kui tuvid kadusid” , I really thought I was going to like this. There are people that love this book, but her writing is just not for me.
