  2. The Happy Prince by Oscar Wilde

    The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz by L Frank Baum. This is a rare occasion where the film is better than the book. I think most of us have seen it a least once. The story follows Dorothy as she finds herself in Oz and wants to return home. She meets three strangers who become her friends who also want something from 'The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz.' Considering this is a children's story I found it rather dark. The ending in the film Sometimes people take a classic book and turn them into films. Which are more fun and entertaining. This is one of those times. Two stars. Film based upon the book five stars.

    I have just finished Landline by Rainbow Rowell. It was dull, the characters irritating and the plotline flat. The main character was a writer for a comedy show but there was only one time I felt any kind of emotion other than indifference, and that involved the MC mum's pet pugs. I was able to forget that she (mc)and her husband where trying to work on their marriage. For me which was pointless as I didn't see anything to prove their love for one another other than them saying it. This apparently won the GoodReads choice awards in 2014. Before I read One Of Us Is Lying a ya mystery/thriller. I accidentally spoiled myself the ending. I did find the beginning to drag but as the story unfolded it got interesting. My favourite character was probably Addy. A solid 4 star and highly recommended.

  9. Books in the rest of 2019

    I don't often tend to keep up with new books but I have added a few that have been/are to be released this month (June) City Of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert Recursion by Blake Crouch I'll Never Tell by Catherine McKenzie. About books I am hoping to get to this year. I would like to read more classics. In particular pre 1900 as well as perhaps finishing the Chronicles of Narnia. I only have two more books in the series. The rest I guess will be whatever catches my eye at the time.

    Paper Towns by John Green. Two stars. I really wish I liked this one. I read TFIOS a couple of years a go because I was curious to all the fuss, and loved it. I did like some parts of the books, in particular part 3. However, I wasn't very enthralled with the rest. The main character was good. I liked him for the most part and his friends for the most part. I'll probably try another John Green book sometime in the future. The Ice Cream Girls by Dorothy Koomson. I must have had this author on my tbr for one of the longest times. I loved every page of this book. It was very cleverly done, as we follow two girls and their past. The twist at the end was great, I cannot believe I didn't see it coming. But I suppose that is a good thing. Would highly recommend but with a warning because of the subject matter. Five stars.

    Thank you Unfortunatly it was not to be. I ended up rating it 1 star. I have the Mother of All Christmases too. I may save that for the end of the year! I think you will like Perfectly Imperfect Woman. Or at least hope you will. Hi, Luanna. Welcome
