Hurray! :)

Hello there!

I'm back! I'm so sorry for my absence... Since I participated in the Dewey's 24hour Readathon, I have overcome my reading slump and finished a few more books.

First of all, I finished my first-ever John Green book:
Will Grayson, Will Grayson
It was okay, I was a little disappointed at the end. It could have given more closure... But that's only my opinion. It was about two Will Graysons and the one Will Grayson's best friend: Tiny. There were also two girl characters: Maura and Jane. It was sort of a mess, Everyone explaining the depth of their souls etc. I guess I'm either too old or too shallow for it. Or both. But I liked the parts about the musical that Tiny was directing. It was fun. I gave the book three stars on Goodreads...

Then I finished All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
I guess I took too long to read it, I read it so slowly because I wanted to savor it and enjoy it. But then I got lost on the timeline and who was who etc. I might want to re-read it again later, a little faster. It was a really interesting book. I liked the two main characters. I don't think I've ever read a book with a main character is blind before. It was really different. One thing that bugged me was that the book kind of left a loose thread... I can't say it, it's a spoiler... But I think I would give the book 3.5 stars.

Lately I've been reading a lot about AIDS. I have read Philomena Lee and a Swedish book, by Jonas Gardell and now I'm reading the biography of Freddie Mercury.

Well... More later! :)
