Sazed's 2017 Reading in Past Book Logs Posted April 10, 2017 · Report reply On 24.3.2017 at 9:15 PM, bobblybear said: I didn't enjoy Midnight's Children either. In fact, I don't think I finished it. I wanted to like it because like you say, it's a modern classic, but it just didn't do it for me. Yeah exactly, I appreciate that it'S a classic, but I'm just not much of a fan personally :/ On 25.3.2017 at 1:14 PM, Madeleine said: I'm beginning to feel the same about The Book thief - am giving it til page 250, then it will be decision time. The Book Thief is actually my favourite book of all time, did you end up finishing it? I have been incredibly busy with uni stuff again and haven't really had a chance to post on here at all, but I have since read The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, which I gave 2 stars, because I found Holden Caulfield to be so. Incredibly. Annoying. It was really driving me mad haha! I also finished listening to The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, which I gave 5 stars. I bought and already read When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi, which also got 5 stars, what an incredible, emotional book. A coupld of days ago I needed a bit of a break from uni stress and I read The Miserable Mill by Lemony Snicket in one sitting. It got 3 stars, since it was entertaining and actually a bit different from the previous three stories in the series, but overall it was quite boring and... weird.
