It’s been a while since I did a Wrap-Up post, but I haven’t been super active the past two months and so it would have been pretty boring haha! I haven’t read a ton of books throughout February, but I posted some tags and discussions and so here we are!
Books I read in February
I read 1984 by George Orwell for school and I had mixed feelings: I loved the beginning, it was super intense and I was very intrigued. However, the slow pace over the course of the book kind of ruined that intensity and I ended up rating it 3.5 stars. However, after some research it has occurred to me that this might be one of the most important books in terms of totalitarianism and all-powerful states.
I also reread (half of) Six of Crows which was absolutely magical. I’m not the biggest fan of rereading books because the suspense is not as present as the first time – boy, was I wrong. Best decision I ever made. The characters are everything, I was able to discover precious details and hadn’t it been for school, I’d have finished this book in one days time.
After reading Six of Crows I decided to give The Gilded Wolves a try because everyone’s always comparing the two – and it was the biggest mistake ever. Yes, the two books have similarities, but only because TGW is a cheaper replica with more boring and less intense plot. I’m not totally disliking this, but it won’t be a five-star read either!
I started a new category Mini Movie Reviews and The Gentlemen was my very first! The movie was brilliant, full of awesome actors (McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Hugh Grant and Michelle Dockery), a suspenseful plot and so much humor!!! I can only advise you to watch this new movie, especially since its set in London!
