Okay, so I’ll admit, I did pretty bad reading this month. I spent half of the month of January getting organized after my move home and the other half just sort of trying to figure life out. I did have time to read a couple of books for my book review and my goal is to have even more books to review next month!
I’ve been obsessed with this movie since it first came out. I sort of ended up in the theatre, watched the movie, and loved it! A couple of weeks ago I was watching it yet again and saw there is a book. Of course I immediately had to get it and start reading! I enjoyed reading the book, but I will say it was very different from the movie and not quite what I was expecting. The book is about several older people who move to a retirement home in India and their time there. It starts by explaining how they ended up there and the rest of the book talks about their adventures while they’re there.
Okay, okay, so I know Harry Potter is nothing new, and I’ve definitely read this book before, but since it’s one of the books I was reading this month I figured I would include it. My family owns most of the Harry Potter audiobooks so I’ve been reading the book during all of the driving I’ve been doing this month. And I must say, Harry Potter never disappoints. All of the books are so well written and the plot is exciting and complex, but not too much so. If you haven’t read this series yet, better late than never!
After reading this book, I have no idea how I feel about it. I must say I kept reading the book because I thought it would get better. It just never did though. I was expecting something very different when I started reading it. There were a couple of points where the plot started picking up and then quickly died down again. Also, there was a lot of football talk and unfortunately I’m just not that into football.
I’ll be back next month with plenty more reads! In the meantime, be sure to check out my previous months book reviews here.
