Followers by Megan Angelo is a sci-fi novel that will give the reader pause. The concept is shocking and addresses many issues in today’s society. Also, the characters that are spellbinding and interesting, yet all have something to hide. It really questions the way we live our lives attached to our online personas.
Normal People by Sally Rooney is a book that is actually difficult to review. It is understandable how this literary fiction set in Ireland is generating a lot of buzz. The story is beautifully written and explores many interesting themes. However, the plot moves very slowly and the characters are hard to connect with.
I have just started this one and I am already really enjoy it. I love a great thriller and this book definitely seems to have all of the right elements for a page-turner, for sure. I haven’t read any other of Reisz’s novels before and I am going to have to check out some of her other works after reading The Lucky Ones.
BOOKS TO MOVIES 2018
It seems every time I turn around there is a new movie or TV show being announced that is going to be adapted from a book for the screen. Some of them have been optioned and are not even in production, but it is very exciting for book lovers who enjoy seeing their favourite stories brought to life. While there are a multitude of book to movie adaptations to look forward to this year, I have tried to narrow it down to the ones I feel the most eager to see.
