The Maze Runner- Reviewed

I just happened upon James Dashner’s The Maze Runner. I’d had no  intention of starting with a new YA series, but I came across it in an Amsterdam bookstore for 5 euros so I just picked it up. Synopsis and review after the jump.

BZRK review

I brought this book with me in February to Indonesia, but my friend who’d forgotten to bring any reading material seized it and made use of it himself. I started reading it after having gotten back. I wasn’t really sure I’d enjoy it though. Summary and review after the jump

A Hologram for the King- review

While I have wanted to read a Dave Eggers novel for a while, I never really took the initiative to buy his works. Many friends had recommended The Circle, which I planning on getting soon, but in spite of that, I never got any of his books. I finally came across A Hologram for the King while at a book fair. Two things immediately popped out at me; the title- which made me think it was some sci-fi story, and the cover itself (see picture) which I found gorgeous. Summary and review after the jump.

Vile Bodies- reviewed

This one’s been on my shelves for a while now. I promised myself, After reading Evelyn Waugh’s Put out more flags, and A Handful of Dust (review of the former here)- and enjoying them, I thought that I would jump on to this one, but it’s only now that I actually took the time to read it. While it took me a while to get into it I eventually finished it, so here’s a synopsis and my review.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson reviewed

I was at the airport in Jakarta, killing time before my flight back to the Netherlands, when I entered a bookshop and found John Green and David Levithan’s Will Grayson, Will Grayson. The book I had brought on the trip had been seized by my friend, who had forgotten to bring reading material. Thus I bought Will Grayson, Will Grayson so I would have something to read as well.  I laughed in that terminal at some points and shook my head in anger at others. But enough about my crippling sanity, back to the book.
