So my reading list for the month of February is rather dismal I’ll admit but in my defence I have been on back to back shoots for the past couple of weeks and I’ve signed up for my final year of my BBA studies so the assignments have started rolling in too.
I started off this past month reading Jack Kerouac’s On the Road and got about half way before I had to put it down. The book is incredibly draining and difficult to read. Has anyone else read it, if so what are your thoughts?
What I read this month:
THE STORY OF A BEAUTIFUL GIRL BY RACHEL SIMONS:
After reading 150 pages of On the Road I felt like I needed an easy read and that’s exactly what The Story of a Beautiful Girl was. I wasn’t mad about this novel it was an okayish read. However I did find it rather interesting from the point of view of how disabled people were treated back in the sixties. If you looking for an easy read about a family of 3 that spend 40 years of their life trying to find one another this one’s for you. If you looking for a classic read I suggest something along the lines of The Catcher in the Rye.
PAPER TOWNS BY JOHN GREEN:
Yes I’m a 23 year old women who’s obsessed with John Green, I’ve read all 6 of his novels. There’s something interesting in the way he writes about morbid topics such as death or terminal illness yet keeps a light, dry sense of humour throughout the novel. If you ever find me reading a novel in public laughing out loud you’ll know I’m reading a John Green novel. Paper Towns is about a girl who goes missing and a boy who’s been in love with her for years and his quest to find her from the string of clues she leaves behind. I know it sounds cheesy but it’s a poignant and hilarious read. The film is going to be released on the 5th June 2015 and stars Cara Delevingne as the main character, Margo Roth Spiegelman.
