The One Where there are 6 mini reviews in one post : More Mini Book Reviews

I hate myself for being forgetful procrastinator, I started writing reviews for these novels but like an idiot I didn’t finish them so we are sticking to mini reviews.

1. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – 5/5

  • This was painful but beautiful, so damn beautiful.
  • From the very start you can see the ending coming but that doesn’t shield you from the end.
  • The idea is very unique and the monster, though scary was kinda like a ray of hope for our main character.
  • This book gave me goosebumps towards the end, I could have never thought that the Truth can be so terrifying.
  • I highly, highly recommend it.

2. The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern – 3.5/5

  • This book is also pretty different from what I have read before.
  • It shows how the death of her father affects the life of a young girl and her mother, as they are uprooted from their old life into a new one.
  • This is something that has been done before the unique part about this book was that it had a touch of magic, our MC finds a book which can literally tell her the future, hence the name.
  • With that it also had some unpredictable twists and the book was addicting, hard to get into at first but after a point it was difficult to put it down.

3. Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills – 3/5

  • Initially I had given this book a 4 stars, since I read during exam period and it provided me with the break I need but pondering back on it after exams I releasing it wasn’t a 4 star read.
  • It was a cute book but extremely forgettable, I genuinely remember nothing about the novel other than the friendship that developed between two certain characters which sucks, I wish I remembered more but I don’t.
  • It remember it being sweet and fluffy and that’s about it

4. The Wizards of Once by Cressida Cowell – 4/5

  • I think this was the first Middle-Grade Novel that I read in a long time and I was surprised by how much I liked it.
  • The relationships and the character developments were done extremely well and the story was very easy to follow along.
  • The illustrations are marvelous and the story is engaging
  • Plus the character names are hilarious, there is one pixie named squeezejoos (adorable) also there is pet spoon (Cuteness overload)
  • The cuteness is not the only strong part of the novel, the writing style is also very nice and immersive.
  • If you are looking for a MG series, I definitely recommend this.

5. The Lost Girl by R.L. Stine -3/5

  • This book had great potential and it was using that potential until the ending which, in my opinion, was pretty anti-climactic.
  • This book had everything magic, spookiness, eerie atmosphere, a good story and well-written characters
  • This story is engaging, easy to follow and quick to get through
  • But the ending, sigh, no.

6. Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss – 3/5

  • This is the first non-fiction novel that I have ever read and it was nice, it read like a fiction novel thus it was easier to read.
  • It was thought provoking, memorable and well-written (okay so I don’t really know how to review a non-fiction novel, it seems like I have entered a whole new realm)

Tell me about the books you have read recently.

    I know! It kind of sucks when you’ve finished way too much book then forgetting you haven’t written any reviews for them.

    A Monster Calls had been a rec read to me, I have seen the movie and I never bawled like that over a movie and judging you reaction I will be too with the book. Cecelia Ahern’s books are very hard to put down! I am glad that it made the cut. And The Lost Girl is intriguing!

    1. I agree and the worst part is that I could have written the review but I was too last too.

      I am not usually a crier, especially not over books and movies but this one ripped me to shreds.
      Cecelia Ahern is an extremely talented writer, I love the way she is subtly able to include magic in her stories.
      The Lost Girl is a good but just not enough
