December was an alright reading month for me, I feel like I took my sweet time writing about it though so here it is!
Before the Fall by Noah Hawley – (3/5) I was looking forward to reading this book because it was supposed to be super intense, spoiler alert, it wasn’t! It was a very bland book with basic characters who didn’t interest me. The ending and the “resolution” to the whole thing was very underwhelming and wasn’t at all shocking or unbelievable.
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath – (4/5) Basically this is about a young woman who slowly goes crazy. I couldn’t tell that she was crazy, I guess I probably wasn’t reading it that closely. It was very well written though and was an interesting story involving relationships and friendships.
Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena – (4/5) This book sounded promising and it sort of lived up to the expectations. The beginning was definitely pretty intense but I found that it all died down and the mystery unravelled halfway through. Overall it’s a decent read and there is a fair amount of suspense in it!
The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware – (4/5) I’ve seen this being compared to “And Then There Were None” somewhere, and that’s extremely inaccurate because the latter is an amazing read. This one was decent but a little bit predictable, I couldn’t tell who was the person in question but bit by bit you get the idea before what’s going on is actually revealed. Good book but had the potential to be better.
Have you read any good books lately?
