I’m sorry! I’ve been gone for a while. This apology is mostly directed towards myself, because I hate when I don’t blog. However, I had a bit of a technology malfunction and I had to buy a new laptop. Fortunately, this one is lovely and will allow me to blog once more. Yay!
So, since I’ve been gone, I have decided to do some book reviews! I’ve been reading quite a lot lately and I wanted to share some good ones with you.
EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE
by: Jonathan Safran Foer
This book manages to be adventurous, witty, and heartbreaking all at the same time. Told from two different points of view, the novel chronicles the life of young Oskar Schell, a boy whose father was killed in the 9/11 attacks. The other story is told in the form of narration and letters by Oskar’s grandparents. You will fall in love with quirky Oskar instantly. Foer tells the story through both words and images, adding pictures amongst the chapters to help tell the story. I heard the movie wasn’t the best, but the book is definitely worth reading!

If you like medical memoirs, you will enjoy this. I’m basically the biggest dork ever for reading this in my free time, but I think it’s really interesting! It’s all about the patients of a renowned neurosurgeon, aka entertaining as well as educational. Awesome.
I am currently reading a few others, but I’m not quite finished with them yet, so I will review those as I finish!
If you’re looking for a quick read, Extremely Loud and Incredibly close only took me about a day, because the story is so compelling.
Read with me! I’m reading:
Have a good weekend!
