My Feelings From Riddhi

A book you did the mistake of reading during a slump

A book that I thought would get me out of a slump, but only made it worse? I literally just finished Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn – I thought it would be brilliant, and while the queer rep was great and the story was fun, the writing style made me want to rip my head off. It was very primary school-esque.

Although, it’s made me appreciate how good the writing styles are in most of the books I read!

A book that is super unrealistic, and unreasonable, but you love it all the same

All the best books are completely ridiculously! It’s pretty unlikely that The Nobleman’s Guide To Shipwrecks and Scandal would have actually happened, given the historical context, but it makes me love it even more. Find out why in my review here!

A book that was way too deep for you to enjoy.

The Great Gatsby totally went over my head. I found all the characters irritating and really didn’t understand the big meaning behind it. Did you? Let me know in the comments!

A book character you feel a strong connection to.

I really love Leah from the Simonverse – I got into that series when I was pretty young and it’s like I’ve grown up with her. I’d also love to be able to play the drums as well as she does!

A book that made you feel whole.

That’s a pretty hard one. The feeling of completing a series, especially if it’s an exceptional one, is always bittersweet but turning the final page on The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater made me feel pretty whole. I knew I wouldn’t be forgetting the series in a hurry!

People I tag:

My prompts:

  • The saddest book you’ve ever read
  • A character that made you really angry (this was one of Riddhi’s prompts and I really like it!)
  • A hopeful book
  • A book coming out soon you’re excited for
  • A book that made you feel clever – the opposite of the prompt I answered, one that was deep but you enjoyed!

I’m a teenager (and a Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore and books. Pretty much any book I can get my hands on but my favourites are Young Adult, fantasy and science fiction. One day, I decided to share some of my opinions on some great - and not so great - books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it and I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of book reviews (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.
