The Art Forger by B. A. Shapiro. This was just a really nice little book about painting and art history. Most of this book is about a woman learning painting techniques so she can forge a painting, I realise that’s not for everyone but I really enjoyed it.
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness. So I like young adult, but I get so annoyed with YA books when a romance plot gets shoved into something where there really shouldn’t be a romance plot (I’m talking about you Across The Universe ). This book did such a good job of being a story about regular kids just trying to get on with their lives while there is a typical YA story going on around them. It was fantastic.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I like the concept behind this book, for those of you who don’t know this is the full fanfiction written by Cath in Fangirl (at least I think it is). The book was reasonably good but the entire way through I couldn’t help but compare it to Harry Potter. This book felt like a Harry/ Draco fanfiction, I think Rainbow Rowell did a very good job of making it feel like a fanfiction but yeah, it felt like a fanfiction.
Pandora’s Star by Peter F. Hamilton. I don’t think I’ve ever read a space opera before and I really don’t know why. This book was so good. And it’s only half of the full story, I have the sequel on order and its taking way too long for it to arrive. RAGE. Yeah I’ll probably do a full review of this.
