Follow Friday!

I know I haven't participated in a while, but I'm back and better than ever! ;)


This week's question:


 What are the best and worst books you've read in the past month?


Answer: Hmm.. this one's a toughie. And not because I haven't read some awesome books in the past month - because I totally have - it's just that I haven't read any books that deserve the title of 'worst'. So how about this: I'll give you my absolute favourite book of this year (so far) and my least favourite. Sound good? Yes? No?


Ok, so without a doubt my favourite book this year was The Fault in Our Stars, but Nevermore was a close second. Hands down, shoes off, [some other euphemism that means without a doubt]. TFiOS made me cry so hard that my pillow got all nasty and soggy and I had to throw it in the wash and sleep with only one pillow that night. This was me at 4am after I finished:




This was me writing my review the next morning:



And this is me thinking about it as I write this post:


 

Ahem... I'll be okay, I swear. MOVING ON.


My least favourite book of the year (so far) was probably Past Perfect, but that's just because it was a little too fluffy for my tastes (none of the angst or intense emotions that lil' ol' me craves in a contemporary lit novel). But there's nothing wrong with that, you know? The writing was awesome and funny and the book was still a fun read - it just wasn't my favourite.

  2. I still haven't read TFIOS, if you can believe it. I'm so behind, but I have too many books to read. I'm so glad you - and everyone else! - enjoyed it though. I'm really looking forward to the cry-fest that will ensue when I eventually read it.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. I loved TFiOS too! I kept putting it off because of how much I knew I was going to cry. But it was so worth it when I did finally read it.
