Saga Volume 1 | Brian K Vaughan
post image

So continuing my backlog of reviews... This is Book 2 for #13books13weeks. There was a lot of love all over Litsy during one of the readathons, I thought I‘d give it. This is the second graphic novel I‘ve read, so not a lot to compare it to, but I really enjoyed it. The story was intriguing and the characters were well developed. The illustrations just added to the story (I was afraid they‘d be distracting).

The Time Traveler's Wife | Audrey Niffenegger

Honestly I don't know what took me so long to finish this book. I enjoyed it a lot. Maybe it was just because work was so stressful that I had a hard time following the book with the time traveling when reading after work. I finally finished it to finish the first quarter of #booked2018 #unconventionalromance

This was an easy nice read. Not the passion I was expecting and I will say this was a very unconventional romance, but anything is possible if you ever watched married at first sight.

The Night Watch | Sarah Waters
post image

This is my second Waters book and I really enjoyed it. The novel begins after WWII and follows the characters backward in time. I thought the unconventional timeline worked really well, revealing secrets and what led them to be the people they are in the first part of the novel.

This is my last book for the first season of #Booked2018 ! #unconventionalromance 🎉

Minervasbutler Great book! 2y
Laughterhp Loved this book and Then there were none!! 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Lots of good picks there! I‘ve enjoyed two Sarah Waters books but still have this on my shelf. 2y

One Day | David Nicholls
post image

Even though “Dex and Em” frustrated me for a majority of the story, they still kept me entertained. I enjoyed the format of glimpsing their lives on one day over the years, full of ordinary moments, and seeing their growth as people and friends.

I‘m a little early with this #FreakyFriday read, but I was already planning to use it for my #UnconventionalRomance for #Booked2018. #MountTBR

monalyisha Love seeing these reviews! 🙌🏻 This one‘s been on my TBR forever! 2y
Smangela Loved this one :) but agreed frustrated for a lot of the book haha! 2y
wanderinglynn I loved the concept, but ultimately had to rate it so-so because of my frustrations with the characters. 2y
Cosyreader Oh wow you‘ve started early! I‘m trying to race through my current reads so I can start your list haha! 2y

I was assigned to read this book 16 years ago in my Modern British Lit class. Well, I have finally finished that assignment! 😜
You know how an ending can make or break a book? Well that‘s what happened here. I was fairly convinced that this book was a solid meh, but I enjoyed the last twenty pages or so. Apparently I‘m a sucker for a happy ending—gets me every time. #UnconventionalRomance #Booked2018

BarbaraTheBibliophage This one‘s a classic! 👏🏻👏🏻📚📚❤️❤️ 2y
AmandaL I started this then had to return it to the library... I better request it again. 2y

Mrs. Fletcher: A Novel | Tom Perrotta

I was searching the #unconventionalromance hashtag and realized that I read Mrs. Fletcher in February and could use it for this prompt. So that‘s that and the rest are in the picture. Now I can plan for the next season! #booked2018

Cinfhen Woohoo!!! Congrats and good luck for the prize drawing 🎉🎉🎉 2y

This was a nice book to read in between heavier stuff. I needed a break last night so I picked this up and could have easily read it in one sitting had I not been so tired. I loved the concept of Levithan literally writing a dictionary based on a (fictional) relationship. It was sweet but searing. There wasn‘t enough of a plot to get invested in the actual story, but enough to make it realistic and bittersweet. Great readathon choice.
