    Books Reviewing challenge

    Think of this as a little assignment with a deadline that is - now.

    I'll give you the rules in a moment, but before we go there, there a few things I need for you to comply with.

    It's simple. I want the review in this order.

    1. Title

    2. Author

    3. Genre

    Then your opinion. It has to be really short so it doesn't get boring. Max: 35
    lines

    Here's my little review:

    Taking Chances

    Molly McAdams

    Romance

    It's a fascinating book about a bittersweet love triangle. Eighteen-year old Harper, wanting to get a taste of freedom, deliberately leaves her home for college - where she meets two boys she immediately falls in love with and a reliable roommate.

    The book was the best and worst I ever read. Best because I just love triangles and I wanted to know what happens to the characters. Worst because it wasn't the best book I've ever read. The characters were a little faded out and Chase, one of her love interests, doesn't get enough chances to prove himself. Which is ironic considering the title, when being all about chances it should atomically be what the characters get. But no, some characters don't get mercy from the author. I also felt it was a bit rushed in parts. Chase definitely should have gotten more book-time and the ending was terrible. I'm not a fan of really sad endings but they're at least realistic. Molly decided (spoiler alert) that she would end it with rainbows after the thunder and rain of drama.

    Those who will not reason, are
    bigots, those who cannot, are
    fools, and those who dare not,
    are slaves.

    War and Peace
    Tolstoi
    Society/ war/ love
    A complete description of russian society from the time of Napoleon's war against Russia and a complex introspection of the main character while he is facing life.
    It has all you need to make you forget to sleep and keep reading. Is a 4 volume work so be prepared if you are a binge reader with a lot of food and free time.

    I'll give it a try, but I downloaded way too many books in the last holiday, so there's not much room to squeeze in a few books.

    Have you read any romantic book?
