Hello and may you have a nice day ahead. Book review time! I was quite excited because thank goodness, I can finish reading these books on time. This month was quite a busy month for me, in fact that I just got enrolled in a law school and just like you expected, new students have a lot of tasks to do. I got some free time today to update my monthly reads as usual. This time, the books that was added are Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman and The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

It's a #goodnessthatsathickbookicansay 300++ pages book. I read about 20-30 pages a day, and that's an achievement. I think I like this book too much because it is actually really sad. But it is very sad. It is sad how alone in life she is. It is sad when she "falls in love" with an idea of a person. How many times have I mentioned 'sad'? When I saw the title, it intrigued me and had me asking myself if she is really fine. So when I found this book on the recommended section, I started reading it right away to find out why. I heard that there will be a movie released based on this book and I am SO freaking excited to see how it looks like in the movie! #pleasemakemoremoviesonmyfavoritesbooks

So, what can I say about the book, honestly is an uplifting story that explores the unspoken sadness caused by loneliness in oneself and how a little kindness can make a difference in someone's life.

The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls

Hold on, actually I have started reading this book on May but I kept procrastinating on not finishing it although I already read it halfway but completely finished reading it in early September. This book frankly is oddly-confusing but I think the book was still a nice one, excluding for some downsides part of the stories. What I loved about this book is that it presents the poor mentality, at its worst, or even any judgment, with the quirky love we all view of our own childhood time. Goodness, I really don't give justice on reviewing some books. In fact, there was a movie released based on this book back in August and it starring Brie Larson and Naomi Watts. Gotta check it out later.

You can read this book here - The Glass Castle 

That is all for now. I may not be able to do my next monthly reads because currently the hectic life of an undergraduate student has kept me busy all day all night long and honestly, I need to manage my time between classes, reading law cases, making short notes and reading books. I may not have the time to read any new books for the upcoming month. I will read some short stories if I can have some #readingmodeon and will be doing a review on that later. 



Love, Syfka

  1. Based on your descriptions and reviews on the book, I think I'd like to read Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine but I need to finish my current read first and hopefully the book is available in the App Store.
