I had a goal for these past couple of months and that was to read two books. Well, I have achieved my goal. Actually, I’ve read way more than I thought I would be able to. I’ve read 7 books, which is a great thing if you think about it. At the beginning of October I said to myself that two books are enough. I thought I wouldn’t be able to read more because of my busy schedule. Apparently, I was wrong and I’m glad about it!
I will show you guys only 3 of the books which I’ve read. I think they are the most interesting out of them all. If you wanna know which were the other ones you can follow me on Goodreads, by clicking THIS.
- The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
- I knew the story and what was it about before I’ve read the book (thanks Scooby-Doo) but that didn’t make it any less interesting.
- It started slightly strange and somewhat boring, but the end definitely made up for that.
- I loved the way Dr Jekyll’s transformation into Mr Hyde was described. It was full of details and extremely fascinating.
- However, I had high expectations for this book and it kind of let me down. It was good, but not as good as I thought it would be.
2. Les Fleurs du Mal by Charles Baudelaire
- I had to read this for school and I thought it was going to be another boring read.
- It turned out to be wonderful!
- It is a poetry book and some of the poems were so complex that it was rather hard for me to understand the meaning behind the words.
- The book is divided into 6 parts and it has a total of 126 poems. Unfortunately, I forgot to flick through the book again in order to see my notes that I made before I returned it to the library. So, I don’t really remember which one of his poems I’ve loved.
- Overall, great book and I recommend it to anyone who loves poetry.
3. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
- This is the first book which I’ve read that was written by Agatha Christie and it was way better than I’ve expected.
- At first I thought it was going to be boring, but OH BOY how wrong I was.
- I just couldn’t put the book down. It got me hooked big time.
- The end was so unexpected… it was gorgeous. I almost teared up.
If you have any recommendations, I would love to hear them!
Keep on reading. Keep on growing.
