Books lately - October 2016

October is always a weird month for me,mostly because you know what you have to do,but somehow you do a totally different thing.I wanted to read so many books and ended up pushing them back,and now I don't really know what to read.

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer (audible) - I really liked this one, if before reading it I didn't really had an opinion about Amy, then now I kind of like her. I liked the book, the way she presented it in the audio version. I even think I like 'The Girl' better than both Mindy Kaling books.

P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han (audible) - I have a tendency to read the whole series if there is one, besides I was so sure I would like the 1st book that I prepared the sequel to continue reading one after another. I liked this book better than the first, I liked that the main character grew up during this book, understood more and was more 'real'.

The Debutante by Kathleen Tessaro - I missed a good 'chick-lit' book, and I've read books by Kathleen before. It took me some time to get into the book,but then the end was so abrupt.I do hate when the book ends with no enough explanations. I have my guesses but that's not enough for me.

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare - the first book in the Infernal devices trilogy describing the history of the Shadowhunters, basically a long prequel of the Mortal instruments series. I did not read any book from the Mortal instruments but did like the movie with Lily Collins and somehow I ended with this book. I liked it, although it was predictable sometimes, it is a 'classical' young-adult book. I am into dystopian novels lately so you'll see a lot of those here.

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion - I just loved this one. I think I've never seen a character like Don in any book I have read so far. And he is fascinating. Highly recommend this one.

The Girl on Paper by Guillaume Musso - depression,writers, and a girl who fell out a book who is here to fix everything. It started as a regular book but then develops into a story about friends and what they will do to help their friends.

American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld - it's a beautiful novel, I get very focused while reading it and I feel that my vocabulary benefitted a lot from it. I was never interested in life of Laura Bush or any first lady really,except Jackie O. and my mere knowledge about the life in the White House comes from movies and Scandal. But this book feels so true and Alice is confusing to me most of the time but nevertheless very affective and you like her a lot.

Elegance by Kathleen Tessaro - my easy reading chick-lit book of the month, nothing serious just a nice book about cloths and how imposrt is to have the right wardrobe for a woman.

I Knew You Were Trouble by Paige Toon - I read some of Toon's early works and really enjoyed them, so when I wanted to read a 'legit' easy book=chick lit, I decided to go with this one.Although it is a series and this is the second book I  understood the story and did not need any more details.A nice read this book, but I do feel now that my 15 year old self had a very boring life in comparison to Jessie lol.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Temple - I wanted to read this book for so long,and even started few times,but it never worked out.So when I got the audible

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion - it's a continuation to The Rosie Project and it starts approximately 10 months after the end of the first book.I did enjoy this book,but it was also quite sad to me and the surcumstances the characters had and their way of dealing with them was quite sad and annoying for me.
