Review: Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk

FightClub

Too much testosterone.

Fight Club has been my second Palahniuk read. So far, there’s one thing I’ve noticed: It’s either he loves putting sexual element to his books or he’s just pretty horny. You decide.

Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

Statistical Probability of Love at First SightBullshit.

“Hadley meets the perfect boy. Oliver is British, sits in her row.”

Bullshit. This part of the blurb is hilarious. Is being British one of the qualifications to be called perfect? I’ve read the novel. Pretty sure he’s no near Johnny Deep (aka perfection).

Review: My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

My Life Next Door

Typical.

Samantha, a white girl, thinks she’s so “normal,” and I quote, “..blond hair, blue eyes, freckles, nothing special” Damn right you are! You keep on talking like that and you’ll be every other girl in the neighbourhood. You’re a rich girl. I’m sure we can find and buy you something special. So stop fucking moaning.

Review: Night Film by Marisha Pessl

Night Film

GO HOME NIGHT FILM, YOU’RE DRUNK

If you’re planning to read this, you’re pretty much fucked.The fact that this book didn’t warn me about its contents, which btw includes devil worship and witchcraft, is plain evil and just mean. If they placed Stephen King on the cover, then I would’ve known what I was dealing with. I can’t just guess what’s the book is about. I can read the blurb but it isn’t even close to the actual plot. So yeah, I was fucked.

‘I was looking forward to us growing old together. Me and you, growing old and dying together.’

‘Douglas, who in their right mind would look forward to that?’

Douglas Petersen understands his wife’s need to ‘rediscover herself’ now that their son is leaving home.

He just thought they’d be doing their rediscovering together.

So when Connie announces that she will be leaving, too, he resolves to make their last family holiday into the trip of a lifetime: one that will draw the three of them closer, and win the respect of his son. One that will make Connie fall in love with him all over again.

The hotels are booked, the tickets bought, the itinerary planned and printed.

What could possibly go wrong?

Teaser Tuesday: Noggin by John Corey Whaley

Noggin by John Corey Whaley

I want to tell you a story about how you can suddenly wake up to find yourself living a life you were never supposed to live. It could happen to you, just like it happened to me, and you could try to get back the life you think you deserve to be living. Just like I did.

Currently reading a Young-Adult! Hah, it’s about time! And I’m actually enjoying this. It’s actually funny, well sometimes it is. And I like how nonchalant and happy-go-lucky the main character is.

It’s about this guy, Travis Coates, who has a cancer. And the only way to save him is to preserve his head (yes, ONLY his head) by freezing it. Next is to get a different body and reconnect it to his head. And they wait for five years, and now here he is.

I haven’t gone long though so I could only give you the story’s overview. But it sounds fun! And I had enough of YA romance for now. So this might work out.

Have you read this book? What do you think? Comment down below, so I would know!

Waiting on Wednesday: You by Caroline Kepnes

You by Caroline Kepnes

Publication: September 30th 2014 by Atria/Emily Bestler Books

From Goodreads:

Love hurts…

When aspiring writer Guinevere Beck strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe works, he’s instantly smitten. Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: She’s gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and as sexy as his wildest dreams.

Beck doesn’t know it yet, but she’s perfect for him, and soon she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom made for her. But there’s more to Joe than Beck realizes, and much more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect façade. Their mutual obsession quickly spirals into a whirlwind of deadly consequences . . .

A chilling account of unrelenting passion, Caroline Kepnes’s You is a perversely romantic thriller that’s more dangerously clever than any you’ve read before.
