‘Romanov’ Nadine Brandes
I usually love retellings, but I have to admit that I didn’t like this one as much. It was very different from what I have already known about Anastasia. I liked the main character – she was everything a main female character should be, and I liked the tsar’s whole family. The love interest really annoyed me, and the plot was boring throughout the whole book, only to have everything culminate at the end of the book.
‘P.S. I love you’ Jenny Han (‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ series)
The beginning of the book was really disappointing – every single scene was really awkward, even for a book about teenagers. As the book progressed, it got more interesting. There aren’t a lot of things to say about this book, other than it’s an easy read. It’s perfect for relaxing, and it can easily be read in one sitting.
‘Always and Forever, Lara Jean’ Jenny Han (‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ series)
It’s a really good conclusion to a series. Usually, the last book in the series is the worse, but I have to admit that ‘Always and Forever, Lara Jean’ kept the level of the previous books. It was predictable but still great to read. We got to see the characters with love grow up and get ready to go to college. Also, I liked seeing Lara Jean’s more crazy side.
‘Becoming’ Michelle Obama
It was no doubt my favourite read of the month. An autobiography of the former First Lady of the United States instantly caught my eyes in a bookstore, and it didn’t disappoint me. It was a great insight into both childhood and the adulthood of Michelle Obama, who is definitely one of the most influential people in the world.
