Check: a book turned into a movie. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.


If you think the movie was great, this is even better.

5/5 stars

Check: A book with a one-word title: Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

So much drama.

I thought this was supposed to be a YA romance. But honestly, it might be the plot of a telenovela, which is probably why they are turning it into a film.

Hoover's writing style excites me, specailly the parts where Holder and Sky are kissing but not really kissing. Hahah.

However, the last parts I was just skimming. Maybe because of all the drama thst was going on inside Sky's head. I understand that that was crucial, but you'll still get it even though you read pass through it.

3/5 stars

Checked: A book you can finish in a day: the Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

The Statiscal Probability of Love at First Sight by Stephanie Perkins.

Great title right? I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

How the story was resolved. Especially Hadley's trouble with her father, who was the reason why she was going to London anyway. How she resolved even her feelings for Charlotte, her new strepmother. Plus of course, Hadley and Oliver's story.

No suprise there, actually for me there were no surprises anywhere. There were no curveballs. The reader would always be one step ahead of the character, knowing this and that with the hints provided  for, but I guess the execution was worth it.

I dont mond spoilers or any obvious hints as long as the way the author tells it is indeed better than what we expect.

Plus, What's up woth the crying babies? It's like whenever there is a baby the author was quick to point out that it would be crying?

How are you doing with your reading challenge?
