This year I set a goal on Goodreads to read 24 books as part of their 2015 challenge. So far I am on track. I read two books in January!
Wild by Cheryl Strayed and The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
Both books are now movies, neither of which I have seen.
I was wildly unimpressed by Strayed’s book. She seemed whiny to me. I didn’t really get the sense of what she learned about herself or her struggles in the wild. Her book seemed like a ripoff of On the Road by Jack Kerouac but on foot. I’m sure in this case the movie has to be better than the book.
The Fault in Our Stars left me crying like a little baby. It’s definitely a teen / young adult novel that will leave you feeling mushy gushy yet heartbroken. I loved it, though. I’m infinitely thankful I didn’t see this in theaters with other people. I’m looking forward to seeing it now with a box of tissues on hand.
