Considering I had exams from the 9th – 21st June, I managed to finish five books. I’m pretty pleased with this, despite the fact that I am still 4 books behind schedule for my goodreads goal, though I’m hoping to make this up over summer.
I enjoyed all of the books that I read, I must say, with my lowest being three stars (I think Murakami is just a little too strange for my taste, though it was still enjoyable).
Bronze – The Adventures of Tom Sawyer – Mark Twain
This book was so much fun. Tom is an adorable character who is always in trouble and I guess could be irritating, if he weren’t so entertaining. This is a children’s classic and so was fairly easy to read, but it was perfect to read during exams to relax and forget about stress for a while.
Silver – Me Before You – Jojo Moyes
I think I may do a full review of this book at some point, though don’t hold me to that! I really enjoyed this book, though there were a couple of things that I did find a little disappointing. Mainly that I guessed the ending about halfway through, so I didn’t find it as emotional.
Gold – A Midsummer Night’s Dream – William Shakespeare
This play was absolutely fantastic. Shakespeare is wonderfully witty and this is definitely one of my favourites by him. I read this as I listened to it as an audiobook and I would definitely recommend doing this, as it makes it easier to follow with all of the different characters etc. It’s lighthearted and entertaining, so if you want to try Shakespeare but don’t fancy the tragedy that is found in Hamlet and Macbeth, for example, this is a great place to start!
