Books.


I just thought I would jot down a few reviews of the books I have read so far this year. I don't get to read much. Just a couple of minutes a day, really. I have only read 4 books so far this year. I like to read, but unfortunately I just don't really have the time.


The Secret Cure by Sue Woolfe.Well, I found this book quite, ummm, boring to be honest. It lacked real depth for the first half of the book and I kept reading, just in case it got better. It didn't. It ended abruptly and kind of left too many things unanswered. I may have a look at her two earlier books though as I found an article written by The Age and they said that the others she has written are better. It was ok. But just ok. Say 3 out of 10?


Top Ten by Ryne Douglas Pearson
A shortish book, but it kept me enthralled. I found it interesting and on the go, two things which make for a good book in my opinion. Interesting. Out of ten, lets say, 8.


Pillow Talk by Freya North
Steve bought me this book as a present. I think he was hoping it would be a romantic novel or something. ;) It was good. I liked the flow of the story. It kept me engrossed and I kept skipping ahead to see what the main characters were up to. I am terrible for doing that when I like a book. It was sweet and certain elements were familiar to me, like Petra (the main character) and her relationship with her parents. I could totally relate. As for a score, how about 8 out of 10.


Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
How switched on is Dan Brown?! Another awesome awesome book by Brown and I think I would have to give it 10 out of 10 to. Awesome. There is so much detail in this book it isn't funny! I am going to seek out his other two books he has written that I haven't read, Digital Fortress and Deception Point. Great book. If you like intelligent thrillers, then seek out this book!
