“I would give anything to have that memory back–to see what it was like between us when we loved each other enough to believe it was forever.”
I had finished Never Never less than a week before I decided to read Part Two. The mayor cliffhanger ending left me wondering what would happen next and I just couldn’t resist temptation any longer… And I have to say this part was even better than the first. Unfortunately it ended with a pretty big cliffhanger as well and Never Never Part Two basically left me even more clueless when it comes to what really is going on with the main characters. The wait for the third part that is scheduled to be published early next year is going to be a painful one… Because I honestly don’t have a clue what is coming next. It’s the first time I’ve read anything by either Colleen Hoover or Tarryn Fisher, but I will definitely read more of their work in the future. The main characters aren’t exactly likeable, but the plot and prose has me hooked!
WARNING: do not read this summary if you haven’t read the first part yet! It will most likely contain spoilers, even though I’ve made sure to keep it short.
Silas and Charlie still don’t have their memories back and are nowhere closer to finding out the truth about why and how they lost it in the first place. To make things even worse: Charlie goes missing. Silas has to race against the clock and his memory loss to write down enough information to help him find her again… And remind him why he needs to in the first place. Things are not as easy as it seems and people soon will start making the wrong conclusions about their suddenly ‘renewed’ friendship.
Both Never Never novella parts are short, intriguing, entertaining and basically leave you with more questions than answers. I really enjoyed reading them, but in a way I wish I would have waited until the third part is published… Because it’s going to be a long wait to find out what happens to Silas and Charlie in part three. I would definitely recommend reading these novellas though; they are without doubt worth reading even though the main characters aren’t likeable.
I’ve started reading The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins the other day and so far I’m really enjoying it. Fingers crossed that it will live up to the hype! I’ve also decided that I want to finish The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt before the end of the month, so I will try to dedicate more time to it. Hopefully I will be able to finish it before my next WWW post!
WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
Partly thanks to the Bout Of Books read-a-thon last week I was able to finish no less than NINE books. I guess this month is going to be a new record! I’m seriously behind on my reviews though, so I will have to start writing them soon before I start mixing up the different plots and characters…
The first one on the list is Fairest by Marissa Meyer. Not as good as the main series, but it was interesting to learn more about how Levana became the person she is in the series. The prose was solid as always.
I continued with My Heart And Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga, and itwas just as good as I was hoping for. Interesting characters, prose, plot… And the author described depression really well.
I read The Death Cure by James Dashner next and wasn’t impressed. I felt it lacked a proper plot and I wasn’t a fan of the ending… Definitely my least favorite book of the series so far. Joyland by Stephen King was good: I loved the 1973 carnival setting and the prose was interesting as always. I didn’t see the ending coming for sure! The Geography Of You And Me by Jennifer E. Smith was my TBR jar pick last week and unfortunately not as good as I thought it would be… Some of the scenes just were too cheesy for me.
Next up is Me And Earl And The Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews. I’m still not sure what to think of it; it’s highly original, but I’m not sure the humor didn’t go too far at points or if I actually liked some of the main characters.
I then couldn’t wait any longer and read Never Never Part Two by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher. This part was even better than the first and unfortunately ended with a big cliffhanger as well. Anatomy Of A Misfit by Andrea Portes wasn’t that great. I didn’t like most characters or the fact that it has a love triangle and the ending felt forced.
Last up is All Fall Down by Ally Carter, a read I have been looking forward to and even though it wasn’t what I was expecting, I ended up really enjoying it! The ending is a mayor cliffhanger though; I need the sequel!!!
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
I will probably try to read The Kill Order by James Dashner so I can finish the series…Hopefully I will like it better than The Death Cure. I have been wanting to read Legend by Marie Lu for ages, so hopefully I will be able to finally start that series… And I have been wanting to read None Of The Above by I.W. Gregorio for a long time as well. The last one on this list is my newest TBR jar pick: I Was Here by Gayle Forman. This one was already on my Bout Of Books TBR, so I will probably get to it soon.
