What I've Been Reading Recently #3

At the present moment, I'm in a bit of a reading slump and it means I am falling behind on my goal of 25 books to read for the Goodreads Reading Challenge. But about a month ago, I was on a roll and read a few books back to back. I borrowed a few books off my Aunt yesterday, who is an avid reader, and hopefully they can get me back into the reading mood.

#GIRLBOSS - Sophia Amoruso

This book has been hyped up by the blogger community for a long time so naturally I thought I should read this. Sophia tells us of her rise from dumpster diving to being the CEO of her own company. While I do think this is a great read to get motivated to do something, I was confused by the way the book was written. Is it an autobiography? Maybe because it did document her life but not in great detail. Is it a book for business advice? I don't think so. While she told us about what she did to get to where she is now, she didn't go into great lengths about everything. Also, sometimes I found that her tone was a bit judgmental and she would often say things that contradicted what she earlier in the book. Overall, it's good, but honestly nothing great.

The Woman in Black - Susan Hill

Now that I have read this, I want to see the movie because none other than Mr. Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is in it! The book centers around Arthur, who gets tasked to visit a a recently deceased woman's house to sort through her papers for legal purposes and the haunting begins. It was a good little read, nothing to extreme, maybe a bit predictable and probably not scary enough. Don't worry about getting scared, it's pretty tame so I would have liked more but I think I prefer a psychological thriller rather than an old fashioned ghost story.

Wrong Girl - Zoe Foster 

While I love reading books that can be mentally challenging, I do love to read a good chick-lit book that will take my mind of things and relax me. This book does just that. It's got a good love triangle, a girl struggling with her with the way her career is going, and a hottie right in the middle of it. I love the way that Zoe describes everything in detail and I must admit I did chuckle out loud many times. If you love Bridget Jones' Diary or anything by Sophie Kinsella, you'll love this one!
