I Finished A Book
Yes, I did. I finished the first book of 2017 and it wasn’t terrible. I have a Goodreads goal of reading 40 books this year, and I’m down to needing only 39 more. It’s a good feeling knocking that first one off the list.
While you can check out my Goodreads page to see my review, I decided to put it here as well. Every word for word.
The first book read: The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer
After many moments of not liking this story. I’m happy to report that I liked the way the story played out. There were a few things that made me crazy, i.e. the MC name changing frequently. While I understood it, it annoyed me. Also, feeling that the characters were too familiar to those of “Twilight.” Especially when it came to the love story.
Also, there were parts of the story, where it felt like it should have been a straightforward love story instead of this action/adventure love combo. For me, it felt as if these two stories should not have been mashed together, up until the end, when I was super happy with the way it had played out.
“The Chemist” had its good points as well. The last ten chapters, it was hard to put the book down. I became invested in the characters and needed to know their ending. I needed to know if the MC would be able to pull it all off since the skills and knowledge were not 100% the best. Old movies and books are where she had picked up her training in other matters. The epilogue really sealed the deal. I was satisfied with the ending of these characters. It felt natural to its conclusion.
At the end of the day, I would read this story again, while I’m not in love with it like I have been with other tales, it was good. I liked it.
that is all.
