Day 26: “A book that changed your opinion about something”

I think I’m going to choose “The Millennium Trilogy” by Stieg Larsson because reading these books made me realise that A) Translated Fiction can be pretty good, and B) crime and thriller are genres worth pursuing because before I wasn’t interested in them and now I read more than I used to!

Day 25: “A character who you can relate to the most”

I had to look back through a bunch of reviews to remind myself of possible candidates, but I think I’m most like Emma from “One Day” by  David Nicholls, although not just because we share a name, but because we both struggled to find career success and deal with life post-university, tried to get publishing jobs and had our hearts broken.

What I have been reading:

I took “Divergent” by Veronica Roth with me on holiday and finished it this afternoon! I will write a review for it soon, but for now I’ll just say that it was OK but it wasn’t one of the best books I’ve ever read.

Other bookish things:

I’m entering the last week of my 30 Day Book Challenge for this month. The questions seem to be getting harder now!

Other things (unrelated to books):

I have just spent this week on holiday in Croatia! It was really hot and sunny, although it did rain for 2 days. It’s the furthest south I’ve been and it was way hotter than anything I’ve experienced before but it was beautiful!
