Mid-Year Book Freak Out Book Tag- 2017

Hey fellow readers, Welcome to another post hopefully we’ll have a good time with this one. I did this tag last year with lots of silly gifs (CLICK HERE) and I am quite shocked that we are here again in the middle of the year.

Let’s just get in with the half year review of my reading… So, I have set a goal of 50 books this year and so far I have only tackled 22 which isn’t bad but last year’s momentum was good and I blame it all on the stupid adulting gig that I didn’t sign up for and my reading momentum has sort of been not great but I digress… I still read some good books and some not so great books.

The Secret History by Donna Tartt book review

Synopsis

Genre: Contemporary, Modern Classic, Thriller, Literary Fiction

520 pages

“Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it.”

P.S. Lot’s of Tumblr like aesthetic coming your way 

The story is unlike any mystery I have ever read, enticed by the idea of why the murder took place as opposed to who did it. The popularity of the book is almost similar to the plot, in that you feel left out if you haven’t read it and the obsession surrounding it will make you pick up the book so as to understand why everyone freaking loves it.

Image result for i didn't expect that gif

A stunning debut novel  I was in awe of the individual parts of this story that were put together so meticulously to form an overall stunning narrative. It was kind of intimidating when I first acquired it to be honest because of the polarising opinions surrounding it. You either love it or you down right hate it and I lowered my expectations which somehow helped me to see the beauty that this story had to offer.
