I'm a little behind on my months end posts right now, so I'm going to spend the next couple days catching up. My monthly goal check in should be up tomorrow :)
I got lots of reading done this month thanks to spring break! I read 5 books this month bringing my total to 17. Only 35 left to my goal of 52 this year!
Here's what I read this month:
1. Alex Cross, Run- James Patterson
I have read every Alex Cross book that has ever come out (19 so far in the series). I've read almost every book that James Patterson has written, aside from the teen ones (about 67, if my counting is correct). I love his writing style, and I really like the characters that he develops. That being said, I like his earlier stuff better. There is a lot less to try and figure out in the more recent books, and I prefer a mystery that stumps me. This book was good though, and I'll definitely keep reading this series.
2. Gone Girl- Gillian Flynn
The best book I read this month, hands down! I loved this book from the beginning to the end. Just when you think you have whats happening nailed down something happens to make you not so sure anymore. I loved it!! I'll most definitely be reading more of Gillian Flynn's books!
3. Dear John- Nicholas Sparks
I must admit, I've read this book before, but it was a few years ago before the movie came out. I decided to read it again after I bought the movie for $5 at Walmart. The book is about a million times better than the movie, and the endings are totally different! It's almost like 2 different stories. I liked that in the book they focused more on the relationship with his dad, and you just got more time to know the characters!
4. Message in a Bottle- Nicholas Sparks
Another Nicholas Sparks book that I've read before, but couldn't really remember what happened. Apparently there is a movie for this book too, I am going to have to watch it and see what I think :)
5. Defending Jacob
This was a close runner up to my favorite book of the month. My Kobo recommended this book for me and after reading the summary I thought it sounded like a good one so I downloaded it. Good call, Kobo! It was suspenseful, and really well written. It's about a boy named Jacob who is accused of murdering one of his classmates. The evidence seems to point to him, but his father refuses to accept that and is determined to prove him innocent. Definitely a worthwhile read!
Any book recommendations? I have a few books lined up for next month, but I'll be needing more soon!
