Hello all! I hope you’ve been well? Things around Vancouver are heating up a little weather wise, so…I’m not too excited about the heat o summer, but I am excited for how much longer the days are!
Today’s post is going to be a little different form the last few. For this week’s TBR post I am introducing e-books! I know that there’s a lot of iffy-ness that follows the stigma of e-books, but I myself am a huge fan, so here we are!
The books for this weeks post is The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender, and The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend.
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows by Leslye Walton is a book that I had heard about solely because of the book community over on tumblr. This book was a popular one around the time it had come out, but not many people seemed to have either read the book, or have liked it. I have yet to obviously form my own opinion. I very vaguely know what this book is about, and while I’m not too excited about the plot of the story, I can’t deny a book with a pretty cover.
The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger, had come into my view because of Goodreads I believe, and where I read the description (durr). When I had read the description for The DUFF, I was actually pretty excited to read it. I had only heard good things about this book. I had borrowed it from the library, but never got around to read it. And then I totally forgot about this book.
Then suddenly The DUFF was everywhere again. The DUFF had signed a movie label. And then it was read again, and was all over tumblr. And then the bad reviews started coming in. And then I was undetermined to read this book at all. I mean, I had heard such horrible things that people have said that The DUFF gives out. – I really honestly hope that the movie isn’t like that at all.
I’m not too excited about reading this novel, but I will because I’d really like to form my own opinion on what this book is or isn’t.
That’s it for this week’s post TBR Tuesday! I hope you enjoyed, and if not, I’m sorry! Do you have these books on your TBR? If you’ve read either of these books, what do you think of them?
Thank you for reading!!
