I was freaking out that I wouldn’t have anything to update you about but well done me I managed to read a book. For the last few days I was away and I just had my kindle so I didn’t read Clockwork Prince although I will read that as soon as I’ve read my two library books that need to go back.
So this week I actually read a bit more than one book so whooo. I read Playlist for a Broken Heart by Cathy Hopkins as well as two short story things called Dream Dark and Dangerous Dream by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
The two Beautiful Creatures stories I read were about 2 stars out of 5. They were nice little things for me to read when I was in the car but they weren’t that entertaining. It might have been because I wasn’t sure what was going on all the time because I read the Beautiful Creatures series ages ago. I think that there should have been more explanations in there as I forgot half of what had happened.
Also I didn’t really like how the stories focused on Link and Ridley as I’m not really interested in them and they sort of annoy me. I think that they should have been stories from Lena’s POV because I think it was mostly Ethan’s POV in the series. The actual series I would give 5 stars out of 5 though because it’s just ugh.
Right let’s talk about Playlist for a Broken Heart. To begin with I was a bit like God here we go when she was saying her parents had gone bankrupt and she had to move to Bath to live with her cousins. However, I was pleasantly surprised when her new life went fine, so I didn’t get annoyed over a sob story. I love Cathy Hopkins and every single thing she’s written- this book is no exception.
The plot was that the girl had bought a homemade cd from a charity shop, and she wanted to find the boy that made it. I loved it because it was so cute and girly, although it could’ve been a bit more romantic. If there’s not a sequel then I wish this book had been longer. At the end I was finally like whooo let’s get this party started but then it ended and I was like ugh tell me these peoples life stories.
Ooh also if you like romantic stuff read Mates, Dates The Secret Story- it’s probably in my top 10 books of all time. Actually I reckon Cathy Hopkins is in my top 10 authors of all time too.
