I finished reading An Abundance Of Katherines by John Green. At just over 200 pages this has been one of my shorter reads on my to-read list so I finally had time to purchase and read it!

Thoughts? A short and sweet book. As a Young Adult book it felt slightly juvenile to me, the content felt a little shallow and without a great amount of detail. I felt like there was not as much character development as there could have been, and the ending was predictable. As a young adult myself, I felt like this book could have been aimed more at teens rather than my own age group. All in all I enjoyed the read and breezed through it in a few days. It was easy to pick up and leave off, and it was a comfortable and light read.

Quiet days spent reading in cafes are like battery recharges.

I finished reading The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter on Sunday. I enjoyed the short albeit morbid takes on classic stories and they were all very easy reads. Some of the stories are only two pages long, so a definite recommendation for a busy individual.

I started reading An Abundance Of Katherines by John Green and I like it so far. I enjoy how John Green writes and though his writing sometimes seems aimed at younger YAs, I think they can also be applicable to those older too.
