Today’s post is being posted on a very exciting day. Today is the day I go to my first blogger event of 2018! I am so excited
Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly challenge, find the Goodreads group here. This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is forgettable books!
1. All I Ever Wanted by Lucy Dillon
“Nancy is four, nearly five. She talks all the time: in the car, on the way to nursery, to her extrovert older brother, to her collection of bears. But then, one February morning, everything changes. Nancy’s mum and dad split up. Her father Patrick moves away from their Bristol home to Newcastle. And Nancy stops talking.
Eva is forty-four, nearly forty-five. She didn’t expect to be the third wife of a much-loved household name, but eight years ago, she and semi-retired bad boy Michael Quinn fell in love. Eva knew marrying a much older man meant compromises, but it was the love of a lifetime for them both – until Mickey dies suddenly, leaving Eva alone with his gossipy diaries, their two pugs, and a distressing voice in the back of her mind, wondering if perhaps she’s sacrificed more than she meant to.”
I really liked this book but when I think back to what actually happened in this book I really cannot remember it. A lot happens in this book but I cannot pin point anything specific. I don’t think I’ll ever read it again thought but it was a good book at the time.
2. The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey
“How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.
Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone.”
This is the second book in the 5th Wave series. I have just begun listening to the audiobook for the third and final book in the series and it has made me realise how little I can remember about the second book. I have no idea what happened in the second book. Something significant happens but I don’t remember it. I wish books in series came with a what happened previously section!
3. The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti
“A teenage misfit named Hawthorn Creely inserts herself in the investigation of missing person Lizzie Lovett, who disappeared mysteriously while camping with her boyfriend. Hawthorn doesn’t mean to interfere, but she has a pretty crazy theory about what happened to Lizzie. In order to prove it, she decides to immerse herself in Lizzie’s life. That includes taking her job… and her boyfriend. It’s a huge risk — but it’s just what Hawthorn needs to find her own place in the world.”
This book in my opinion wasn’t written too well. Everything seemed jumbled and very slow moving. The one thing I have forgotten about this book is the biggest thing that happens in the book. I just can’t seem to remember who Lizzie Lovett is in relation to our main character and what happens to her.
