Books Read in February

February is over, so it’s time for the annual ‘Books I Read’ post. I’ve only read four books this month, mainly because I read two books that were quite hard to get through, and one that I didn’t really enjoy at all. So that took away from a lot of my reading time this month. Oh well…

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan | 
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare | 
The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien | 
The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien | 

I liked Will Grayson, Will Grayson so much, I couldn’t stop reading. I literally had to force myself to put the book down so I could do other things. John Green is in my opinion just a really good writer, and I liked David Levithan’s pieces just as much. What I did found a bit strange was the writing style for one of the Will’s. First of all there were no capital letters, and the dialogue was written like a script (will: is saying something, will2: replies to that). tal letters, and with dialogue like this: “will 1: i am saying something. will 2: and i am responding to that”. As for City of Bones I didn’t enjoy it at all. I don’t really get the hype about these books, and I kind of wanted to read it because they’re making a movie out of it. Some strange words were used often and I literally had to look them up on the internet – Clare’s werewolves are basically just shapeshifters (which annoys me every time people do this) and yeah I just didn’t like it. Ugh. Lord of the Rings was really nice for a change, and I really enjoyed reading part two and three. It did take me such a long time to get through them, because they were written in the 1940’s or 50’s, so yeah that took a while to get used to. I still haven’t read the appendices at the back of the book, but I guess I’ll just get to that when I’ve got physical copies (which I am definitely planning on buying!)

And there you have it, the four books I’ve read in the month of February! See you next month!
