It happened! I like a book precisely because of the romance. Of course there’re other factors involved but The Distance Between Us swept me off my feet. It was sweet, good light-hearted fun reading this book. I found so many reasons to laugh from the beginning right through to the end, which I loved. I like books that make me laugh. They’re such stress-relievers and wonderful distractions.
16 Things I Thought Were True is a misnomer. The proper title should have been 17 Things I Thought Were True. Yes, there were 17 things, not 16. Each of there were numbered, so I wonder why the title wasn’t changed or if it was too late to change the title, why the hashtag #thingsithoughtweretrue wasn’t capped at 16 times. The 17th occurrence could have used a different hashtag—one that could’ve ended this book with a bang.
Epic Recs is back! Well, delayed, more like it but whatever. What matters is that Olena and I are still alive and kicking, and we did pick out recommendations for each other this month. I just didn’t post this earlier because I didn’t have access to the book yet and I didn’t know how I long I would still need to wait. I had the ebook reserved the day Olena emailed me and now I finally have it in my hands. Well, as much in my hands as a digital file can be.
In April I read The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook, as per Olena‘s recommendation. Olena in turn read North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley. I hadn’t heard of The Almost Truth until Olena recommended it, so it was a new to me. It was a pretty decent book, and I liked that it was light-hearted.
