Invisible Girl

This is another of the great book mail sent from my friend and I definitely recommend it. It was a great book that definitely kept me guessing. Invisible Girl is the first book I’ve read by Lisa Jewell (I’m pretty sure) but it will not be the last!

A young girl goes missing and the lives of people distantly connected to her start to intertwine. The characters are all very different personalities and live very different lives, but that does not mean you can judge a book by it’s cover. Saffyre, the young girl, started discovering this for herself as she observed people and, sometimes, followed a little too closely. Which is how she ends up in trouble. I felt strong emotions towards the main characters in the novel, which always makes it a better read. Unless books easily make you have nightmares, definitely check this one out. It wouldn’t say it’s scary, but there is definitely a creep factor, and from more than one angle. Enjoy!

The Absurdity Of It

I won another free book through Goodreads giveaways and I don’t always read the synopsis of those books before I read them. And this one I definitely should have. The Absurdity Of It by Sophie Adam was more like a person’s running thought process throughout her life. It was very strange at first, but once I was used to the format, I enjoyed it. There are very little details provided as far as exact locations, years, age of the main character, so that was also interesting. But it was fascinating to see this person’s life from her own head: trying to figure things out, making her own way in life, deciding if she will go along with the status quo, and deciding what makes her happy.

It is definitely the most unique book I have ever read, and although I probably would not have picked it up if I hadn’t gotten a free copy, I’m glad I read it and would recommend it!

The Royal We

It feels a bit like Royal fever again watching The Crown, so this was a perfect book to read at the same time! The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan felt a little bit like a Prince William and Prince Harry story, except this time William is the one making relationship headlines. And based on my limited research, literature read, and shows watched, there are definitely snippets of truth to some of things in the book. Like the royal family vacationing in Klosters every year, which is included in the book.

The book was entertaining, albeit slow at times. I felt like they could have left out or shortened some parts. Or maybe I am just a more distracted reader this time of year. Either way, I’d still recommend it, especially if you enjoy all things royal or royal-based and with a bit of American flair. I’m planning on checking out the next book in the series as well! Enjoy!
