REVIEW: You by Caroline Kepnes

 

“You are a woman and I am a man and we belong in the dark together.”

REACTION AFTER READING THE BOOK

I am still in shock at how scary and wonderful this book is.

I am, seriously, still dumbfounded by how much I enjoyed reading this. I don’t know what that says about me, but I was fascinated with how Joe’s mind work.

ASK THE BOOK COMMUNITY: Dnf-ing books

ASK THE BOOK COMMUNITY is a series that I am planning to do on my blog where I’ll be posting some bookish topics on Twitter to get more insight on what other readers’ responses are about the said topic.

This week, the topic I asked the book community was about not finishing books or most commonly known as DNFing.

Before I continue, I would like to thank everyone who joined the discussion when I posted this topic on Twitter. If you are on Twitter, please follow them because these are some genuinely lovely people.

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY: Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

“Back then, I had an oversize sense of self-importance and absolutely no self-worth. It didn’t matter how gorgeous I was or how great my voice was or what magazine I was on the cover of. I mean, there were a lot of teenage girls that wanted to group up and be me in the late seventies. I was keenly aware of that. But the only reason people thought I had everything is because I had all the things you can see.

I had none of the things you can’t.”
– Daisy

Everyone was talking about Daisy Jones & the Six last year. However, because I try to stay away from hyped books as much as possible, I didn’t read this book until early this year – It was the best decision ever.

I am in love with Daisy Jones & the Six. I completely agree with all the hyped stuff everyone has been saying about this book because it was amazing. Nothing short of amazing.

LET ME TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE STORY:

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY: Psycho-Pass Season 1

“In order to measure a person’s worth, you must do more than push them. The real way to test their worth is to give them power. When they gain the freedom to act outside the boundaries of law and ethics, you can sometimes see their souls.” – Shogo Makishima

For fans of The Blade Runner and the Minority Report, this is an anime that you will surely fall head-over-heels for.

Going in, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was just checking around Netflix, trying to find a new show to binge-watch, when I came across Psycho-Pass. Based on the synopsis on Netflix, you don’t get a lot of what it was about – Boy, was I surprised to see that this was more than just your regular anime.

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

DISCLAIMER: I have read this book back in 2016 and posted this review on Goodreads but my thoughts about this still has not changed. A lot of my Goodreads friends have loved this book; I was one of the few that did not love this. All The Bright places will be getting a movie starring Ellie Fanning, and while I believe she’ll do a great job of being Violet, I’m not sure if it’s something I’ll be watching if the story is much like the books.

DISCLAIMER 2: Don’t be fooled by that title. This book does not have a happy ending. Sorry to spoil things for you. But I just needed to say it. It’s one of the things I didn’t like the book.

BOOKS I MUST READ IN 2020

For someone who claims and swears by her love of books, I have not been very good at showing it, especially last year. I think I read such a few books I can’t even remember what they were. Lol.

Anyways, I promised myself I will be reading books this year. And I also promise myself I will be reading the unread books that have been waiting for me on my shelf. I have quite a few that I would have loved to read last year, but didn’t.

Here are some of the ones I am promising to read before the end of this year (hopefully).

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY: The Witcher Season 1

thewitcherSo that was surprising. I did not expect to love this series to be completely honest.

I love fantasy. Whether it’s a book, a TV series, movies, or whatever – I eat them up – but The Witcher was never in my radar until I saw the trailer with fucking Henry Cavill, clad in all black with elvish white hair; Damn. How can you resist watching that?

giphy (2)

So yeah. I watched this after the hype has gone down a bit because that’s just how I am. I tend to not like watching stuff that are so hyped up, because sometimes I fear I will get pressured into liking it because everyone does.

So anyways, like I said, I finally watched it.

This was how I looked like after the first episode.
