Book rêveur

Short notes on my travels through the Universe of Books. 

Very short 2 star reviews and more

Watch Over Me - Tara Sivec The Dry Grass of August - Anna Jean Mayhew Uncharted - Tracey Garvis-Graves

I have a problem - too many books, too little time. Yeah. So, I decided to make quick reviews of some books that were ok or worse.

 

Watch Over Me - Gosh, it wasn`t so long ago, but I don`t remember almost anything about this book. For me it was boring, too much like self-help bullshit. 2 stars 

 

The Dry Grass of August - It started well and had this heated-summer-laziness-slash-something-bad-is-gonna-happen vibe. And then... I don`t know.. It just got messy, author was jumping from one thing to another. It was interesting to feel the 1950s atmosphere and read about racial segregation but that`s all. I was disappointed, it could be a much better book. 2,5 stars

 

Uncharted - Ok, I LOVED On the Island, so I had to read this novella, to find out the story behind The Bones. It was nice to meet Anna and T.J., but Owen and his story was poorly written. It was like author was very busy and wrote this story in a hurry just because everyone is asking for it all the time. Nothing of that magic I felt in On the Island. 2,5 stars

 

 

Just a quick side note. I`m not a native English speaker, so I guess my posts have some grammar mistakes and poor language. I apologize for that. I`m an avid reader for many years. For more than 6 years a have a book blog in my native language. This blog I started as an exercise not to forget to write in English. Yesterday I finished 80th book in 2013, so here is just a small part of what I have read. If I`ll have time, I`ll add more books I`ve read in 2013, but I don`t suppose I`ll go back in past and add every single one.
