October Wrap Up

And November is here which means it’s almost time for Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Yay! But that also means it is time for my October Wrap Up. I read a total of  seven books for a total of 1,942 pages. I really wanted to read more but I am just glad to be out of my reading slump once again. And here are the books I read in October:

1 | Boy 21 by Matthew Quick

272 pages

Young Adult Sports Contemporary

Pretty interesting story following two boys who, in their own way, are out of place  and both play basketball. Only Finley plays basketball to escape, whereas Russ doesn’t play basketball as a way to forget. Russ is a rich kid who is brought to live with his grandparents in a less wealthy neighborhood after the death of his parents. Finley is one of the few whites kid in a predominantly black neighborhood. Their stories intersect when Finley’s basketball coach asks him to watch over Russ and try to encourage him to play basketball again.

At first I found this story weird. I’m like man this boy must really be trying to avoid some deep stuff to refer to himself as Boy 21. But as we learn more about Russ, I begun to love the story.

My rating: 5 stars

April Wrap Up

Well April is officially over. It passed way too fast for me. Shockingly I was able to climb out of my reading slump. And with that being said, I read 6 books and 5 novellas in April for a total of 2,129 pages. It was a great comeback being that I read more in April than I had so far this year. So here is what I read in April:
beautiful bitch

1 | Beautiful Bitch (Beautiful Bastard #1.5) by Christina Lauren 

160 pages 

Adult Contemporary Romance

Where to begin? Hmmm…I really don’t know. Let’s just say that while I did enjoy this book I expected it to be more about this vacation they took. However, over half of the novella is about the events that took place before this said vacation. That had me upset to the utmost degree. But as I said I did enjoy it and was happy with the ending.
