BookTube-a-Thon-me

Hello, hello… I completed BookTube-a-Thon! Yeah!!

Just kidding! I totally and I absolutely failed! I finished 4 books only and I had to change some books from my TBR, but I’m kind of a glad with my reading progress! So, let’s see what I read and which challenges I completed!

~~~

  1. Jill Hathaway – Slide (Чужди очи)

So, the first book I finished was “Slide” by Jill Hathaway, with which I completed the challenge to read a book with a person on the cover. I planned it and it happened! I’m very glad that I read this book – it gave me chills, but I was totally invested in story and wanted to know what is going to happen! I kind of a liked the main character and I think she was answering to her age and having this strange abilities. I haven’t expected this end, well, I have some close thoughts, but the real end surprised me and I gave the book 4/5 stars!

2. Jill Hathaway – Impostor (Чуждо влияние)

The obvious decision was to pick the next book in the duology, which completed the challenge to finish a book in one day. Well, I absolutely didn’t expected the story to go this way! This one gave me chills as well, but also had some more love in it and this “mother” things, which happened weren’t realistic to me. But overall, I think it was a good book. The whole duology is very interesting and I do recommend it as a teen and little mystery book. I’ve enjoyed it a lot and I gave 4/5 stars to “Impostor” as well, so 4/5 stars to the whole duology.

3. Stephanie Perkins – Lola and the Boy Next Door (Звезди за Лола)

So, I planned to read “The Dress” by Sophie Nicholls to complete the challenge to read a book bought because of the cover and I read 70 pages and DNF’ed it! It wasn’t my book and I may read it at some point, but not sure. And… I decided to switch the book and read “Lola and the Boy Next Door”, which was also some kind of a cover buy for me and this book was good. Currently I’m at this contemporary mood, so I thought “why not?”. I liked Lola better than Anna, even though she had those crazy ideas and did lots of stupid things during the book, but it was interesting and I liked Cricket – he’s probably my most favorite male character from the whole trilogy. I gave the book 4/5 stars.

4. Stephanie Perkins – Isla and the Happily Ever After (Рисунка за Айла)

I haven’t felt like reading “The Forever Song” for the challenge to read a book about a character, which is different for me, so I switched again and decided to read “Isla and the Happily Ever After” – Isla is half French and half American, so I’m count this as a difference as I’m Bulgarian! This book is the last of the trilogy and my most favorite of the three – Isla and Josh are not perfect, but all the feelings this book gave me, made me think about some important stuff as a relationship and not only love relationship, but also relatives relationship. I gave it 5/5 stars and I’m planning to write review about it, so wait for it!
