What I've been reading | September


Paper Towns - John Green

Earlier this year I read 'The Fault In Our Stars' and like the majority of people I fell in love with the story of Hazel and Augustus. I enjoyed John Green's writing style so much that I decided to give Paper Towns ago and I am so, so glad I did!


The story follows a boy called Quentin, who is infatuated with a girl called Margo, who he used to be best friends with. Margo's now a popular girl and doesn't really speak to Quentin any more, until one night she appears at his window and takes him on a wild adventure, which leaves Quentin optimistic about their future as friends. Only the next day Margo isn't at school, she's disappeared and it's up to Quentin or 'Q' as they call him, to find her.  It's a really beautiful story that is so funny in parts and touching in others. I enjoyed it every bit as much as The Fault In Our Stars and can't wait to read more of John Green's work.

Bridget Jones Mad About The Boy - Helen Fielding

If you love Bridget Jones (either the books or the films) then you will adore the latest addition to the story, Mad About The Boy. The story is of course told from the point of view of Bridget Jones, now in her fifties and let me tell you A LOT has changed. I can't say too much without spoiling it, but if you are looking for a hilarious yet heart warming easy-read, make it this one. You don't need to have read the other Bridget Jones books (I haven't) though it'll help a little if you've seen the films as you'll know more of the back story. I laughed and cried through this book and don't think I'll ever stop loving our Bridget.

Crescendo and Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick

This month I also read Crescendo and Silence (books two and three) from the Hush, Hush series. If you are thinking of reading this series, I highly recommend checking out this review of the first book. The story follows the same characters, but with new obstacles and evils testing their relationship. I really enjoyed both books far more than the first one and was pleasantly surprised how the story has advanced and the direction it is going in. I've just got the last one to read now! 

So there we have the four books I read this month! I am hoping to continue this series of posts from now on, though there won't be as many books in the next ones (I was on holiday for a week so had lots of time to read). I hope you enjoyed this post - let me know if you read any of my recommendations!

  3. I really wanted to read Paper Towns but unfortunately not for the same reasons as you! I love John Green's writing style but never really enjoyed any of his other books - I'm not quite sure why. I think it's because I prefer more happier books? Nonetheless, I really want to read Paper Towns in the hope that this one changes my mind! x

    1. I completely understand what you mean Louise! Not sure Paper Towns will change your mind, as I wouldn't say it's an overly happy book, but I found it really captivating and it was certainly funny in parts! xo
