The Night of the Coronavirus Christmas by Luke Carter
I got this book from Kindle Unlimited in December when I was looking for some short reads to help me with my reading challenge but I never got around to reading it. I know Christmas is over but I didn’t want to save it for December this year so I just read it because it was only 14 pages. So this is basically The Night Before Christmas but with a Coronavirus twist. It has pictures to go along with the story which was cute. I got a kick out of it but it’s definitely not anything mind blowing.
Anne of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery
***.5 (3.5 stars)
I have been saying the same thing about the last few books I have read in this series that I feel like I’m starting to sound like a broken record. I still love Anne as a character and I am loving following her through the different stages in her life. Honestly that is what is making me want to continue on with this series because I have some issues with other things.
First Gilbert is still barely a part of the books. She makes it to where he’s basically in the background of the story which has been bugging me throughout the whole series but at this point I am kind of numb to it I guess lol. I have struggled to keep up with how much time has been passing through each of the stories. Honestly I have no clue at all how much time has passed. All I know is that Anne is and adult with a lot of kids. Speaking of kids she has named pretty much every single one of her kids after characters that were in previous books and while I am not getting them confused with each other I do wish some of them at least could have been named differently. That’s pretty much it.
I think if I didn’t love Anne so much I wouldn’t have continued on with the series.
The Dead Zone by Stephen King
***.5 (3.5 stars)
Overall I enjoyed this book. I was really loving the first half. It was moving at a steady pace and it pulled me in. The last half however felt slow to me but the reveals felt like they were rushed through. I felt like the build up to everything was amazing and the conclusion was lackluster. I’ve mentioned in reviews that I’ve written for some of his other books how he will spoil what’s going to happen later on in the book and he did that in this book and I absolutely hate it. It takes away from the shock value for me. There was some unnecessary animal cruelty in the very beginning of the book as well as some cheating later on in the book both of which I don’t like to read in books.
Have you read any of these books? I would love to talk more about them in the comments just be sure to label your comment if it’s going to be spoilery please.
