Bout of Books 10.0: Thursday/Friday (Day 4 + 5)

Saturday, May 17, 2014

So ... I didn't do much reading on Day 4. I only got through 75 pages (which isn't a bad thing) but I was hoping to finish this on Thursday night so I could tackle more of my TBR. But I was feeling quite lazy, so there's that.

This book discusses a really interesting concept. Mia, the main character, has to make a decision to continue or leave her life after a car accident. I have some mixed feelings about If I Stay, but overall I thought it was a good read. I watched the trailer right after and had mixed feelings about that as well. It was as emotional as I thought it would be, but I didn't like how it was so focused on her relationship with Adam, her boyfriend. It made it seem like she was choosing life or death based solely on her feelings for him alone, but the book is not like that. I don't want to spoil the book/movie for those of you who haven't read it yet, so I'll stop before I get too descriptive!

There are only two days left until Bout of Books is over, so hopefully I can get through two more books! (But now that I think about it, I can probably only read one more because I am a little behind on my schoolwork, oops. You know when you only have one more final to take, but it's a little far in the future and it already feels like summer so you can't help but do dumb things to waste time? Yeah ...)
