I’ve been so caught up the past week and a half revising Hunter High that I haven’t gotten ’round to updating…again!
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest: Enjoyed it. Found it hard to put down. A good wrap-up to the trilogy, but left me wanting to read more stories about Lisbeth. I wonder what the series would have tackled next if Larsson had lived.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules: An easy read for a Saturday morning. I like the dry humour and school situations, though the main character Greg isn’t really that nice of a kid. I think he deserves everything he gets.
Your Voice in My Head: A memoir by the British author and screenwriter Emma Forrest. Not always a huge fan of memoirs, but I liked this one because it was kind of written like a love letter to her psychiatrist. He died from cancer and she spends the book struggling to understand why he didn’t let anyone know of his illness. The book also focuses on her relationship with a movie star, which ended abruptly after six months and after he said he wanted to have a baby with her. He did a complete 180. Jerk.
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief: I read this book three years ago and decided to re-read it after two friends remarked that Hunter High reminded them of this book, with respect to the adventure set-up. I can see; it follows the hero’s journey.
