Me Before You | Jojo Moyes
post image

Anyone else read more than one book at a time? I‘m reading Mill On The Floss on my Kindle whilst I travel to and from work. I‘m reading Me Before You in the break room at work and War Of The Worlds at home 🏠

dariazeoli I almost always read multiple books at once! 👍🏻 5mo
Ycart85 @dariazeoli I like having a choice depending on my mood 🤪 I really struggled with my last read and if I didn‘t break it up with other books I don‘t think I‘d have finished it 5mo
ImperfectCJ I love reading several books at once. So often I see parallels between seemingly unrelated books that brings a different perspective, especially when reading classics alongside contemporary books, like you are. Very interesting combo you have going there! 5mo

Ycart85 @ImperfectCJ both War of the Worlds and Mill on the Floss are on my 100 books scratch off poster. I often find the language in the older classics quite hard going so I like to break it up with a more modern, lighter read. 5mo
Johanna414 I‘ve always got like 4 or 5 going at once... I‘m a mood reader! 5mo
LapReader One on public transport, one in bed and another in the spa, sauna, bath or at the beach plus a couple of audio books for walking as I don‘t drive. 5mo

Wuthering Heights | Emily Bront

Second read on my 100 books bucket list. Should manage a couple of chapters before bed 😏

Mishu94 I read this wayyyy back in high school! I always think about rereading it because I don‘t remember it that well I‘m kinda scared to open it up 😂 it‘s maybe because I still remember the ending 🤦‍♂️ 4mo
Ycart85 @Mishu94 I was a bit underwhelmed if I‘m honest. I struggled to connect with the characters 🤷🏼‍♀️ 4mo
Mishu94 @Ycart85 i get what you mean, I read it when I was in my teens and you can well imagine how that must have been😂 I‘d read something about heathcliff and I‘d go ‘Ohhh heathcliff‘ 😂😂 4mo

Bridget Jones's Diary | Helen Fielding

Mehso-so

Read this in a few hours today. Was ok, I guess I‘m just not a fan of reading in the style of a diary. On the plus side a quick and easy read if you‘re looking for something on the lighter side.

Took a while to get into, really enjoyed the middle and then a predictable ending. All in all I‘m glad I read it but as I find with a lot of books, the ending disappoints.

The Host: A Novel | Stephenie Meyer

Pickpick

After reading the Twilight series what feels like many moons ago I was unsure what to expect from this. However not unlike in the Twilight books Meyer manages to convey her characters in such a way that you can‘t help but root for them! The story was unlike any other I‘ve read and if there were a sequel I would definitely be adding it to my TBR.

Alphabetised first by author, then series in order and then single titles 💜 plus I have space for at least 15 more books!

Starting this tonight. Loved the Twilight series so I‘m feeling hopeful. Also for 50p you can‘t go wrong, can you ?

Have had to put this one aside for awhile, really struggling to get through more than a chapter at a time! I already have the rest of the series and hope the rest are a more gripping read. Any words of advice? It doesn‘t help that I‘ve seen all of the tv version 🤷🏼‍♀️

jessinikkip I have the first seven and I found that I really got into them about a third or the way through book one and then stayed interested. I hadnt seen the show 9mo
Ycart85 @jessinikkip maybe that‘s the problem, hopefully book 5 will grab my interest again 🙂 9mo

Trying something new. No idea what to expect but I‘ve been in a bit of a reading slump lately so I‘ve set my current read aside in favour of this. #newread #mystery #cjarcher
