Okay, so I should have written this post earlier in the month but never mind.
I managed to read three books last month and here they are:
- Famous Five: Five On A Treasure Island by Enid Blyton
- Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
- The Murder of Bindy Mackenzie by Jaclyn Moriarty
The Famous Five was kind of boring and I wish I had read the books when I was younger. During my obsession with buying Enid Blyton books last month, I got hold of some books in the Famous Five series. I wonder when I'll ever read them.
Eclipse was refreshing and I was really absorbed in the story. As usual, a lot of exciting events took place in the book between the good and evil vampires, the unexpected alliance between the vampires and the werewolves, and so on. I would love to buy Breaking Dawn now but I've signed up for the Ban On Spending Challenge which is being hosted by Drey. If you need a challenge to help refrain you from buying anymore books before reading what you have at home, do consider joining the challenge.
As for The Murder of Bindy Mackenzie (TMOBM), well, I didn't expect for a murder plot to even occur. It seemed like a normal school story about a high-achiever who seems to be a little socially-challenged.
I wished the book had been thinner but I'm not really complaining. It was a fun read for me although it was draggy for other people. I came across various reviews on the book and enjoyed reading them all. Some didn't like the concept of using diary entries and e-mails as it was confusing. Some didn't like Bindy at all. But I liked reading Bindy's musings and her e-mails, letters, etc. Through them, an image of a robotic Bindy formed in my mind. She does seem so formal and everything!
Moriarty has other books which I want to look out for. I've read that The Year of Secret Assignments is better than TMOBM, so that book is definitely on my to-buy list or something. :) I don't actually have a physical to-buy list. I keep the list in my mind. Perhaps I should sit myself down and write it out.
Oh, I was supposed to take my lunch, right? :D Well, guess I forgot about it. Okay then, I'm off now. Bye!
