August Reads

If you’ve read my monthly catch up – which hopefully you have! – you’ll find out that this month has been extremely busy for me. Which is all well and good, and it has been a great month, but it left me with very little time to read. However, I decided to continue with this post anyway, because what I have read has been interesting and I wanted to share it with you guys! So here it goes:

  1. One Door Away From Heaven – Dean Koontz: I think this may be the first Dean book I haven’t whizzed through and adored from the very start, which was kinda sad for me, but it’s always nice to know that nobodies completely perfect. It was an intriguing topic for him to write about, making it an interesting read, but the book started a little slow, and considering how long it is, it made the book feel even longer. Nevertheless, I have no regrets with reading it, as by the end, I was thoroughly enjoying myself.
  2. The Lonely Londoners – Sam Selvon: I read this one for university as it’s on my reading list, and it was an easy, but interesting book to read. I always enjoy that sort of topic, having loved Small Island and other such books, so I’m really looking forward to studying this one when I start at Warwick!
  3. Once – James Herbert: I still can’t make up my mind about Herbert; I enjoyed The Rats and The Fog, but at the same time, it’s just a little too gruesome for me. But Gareth’s Dad absolutely loves Herbert (he’s got one of the coolest collections I’ve seen), and he lent me a load of his books to read, and I can’t deny that I really enjoyed Once. It was a strange fairy-tale sort of book, and apart from a few dodgy scenes, it was a pretty damn good book.

I’ve just started reading The Face by Dean Koontz, which is absolutely incredible, I almost didn’t want to put it down to write this post, but as I haven’t finished it yet, I didn’t want to include it! So watch out for it on next month’s post, along with some more of my uni books! What have you guys been reading?
