It has been a while since I posted these review shots but here I am. I will be posting these mini reviews on the first Monday of every month, as per my old schedule. And I have a huge review backlog so I will utilizing this chance perfectly.
This week I have three books that everyone, well almost everyone, I know has read already and everything that is to be said about them has been said. So I am gonna make them short and quick, a.k.a bite sized mine reviews.
Book Name: Simon and the homo sapiens agenda
Series: Creekwood #1
Author: Becky Albertalli
Characters: Simon Spier, Martin Addison, Abby Suso, Nick Eisner, Leah Burke
Setting: Shady Creek, Georgia, The USA
This book put a smile on my face. I started to read the book just before I watched the movie, as per my usual rule. And I didn’t want to end at all.
Every character was freaking adorable and well adorable. It is a simple boy meets boy story with a hint of mystery angle in it. The writing was so perfect that I read another one of the author’s books. Everyone should read this one.
I loved that the book asked the correct questions about LGBTQA, without being too preachy about it. It also spoke about friendship and family support.
Book Name: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
Series: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
Author: Jenny Han
Characters: Lara Jean, Peter Kavinsky, Kitty, Margot, Josh
Setting: Charlottesville, Virginia, The USA
I will be reviewing the whole series than each book, as I read them in one shot without stopping between them. I usually don’t love book series but this one bowled me over.
The story revolves around Lara Jean, an introvert who writes letters to her crushes to get it out of her system. Unexpectedly those get delivered to all those boys and hilarity ensues. The leads are so relatable and again family relationships and friendships form a big role in the series.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is a a cute story that was converted to a Netflix film just a while ago due to the hype it created. And I assure you the film does not disappoint as well.
Book Name: Nordic King
Author: Karina Halle
Genre: Fiction – Romance, Contemporary
Characters: Aurora, King Askel, Clara and Freja
Setting: Copenhagen, Denmark
Aurora is selected to be the new nanny for the Nordic royal family. She is from the Australian outbacks and is no way considered fit to be teaching the royal princess or to be the King’s new girl friend – or is she?
Even though the plot is kinda predictable I enjoyed reading this one. I liked the family dynamics and the friendship between the kids and their nanny. Perfect for a cold afternoon read with cup of coffee.
So how did you like these books? Do you do mini reviews on your blog? Do you like reading them? Let us talk about it.
