Reading Round Up 2021 #3

 Here we are.

Another week gone.

More time spent reading (well not as much time as I'd like). Which of course means I must update you with another reading round up.

I haven't managed to read quite as much as past weeks as the book I've now started reading is over 600 pages long and I don't know about you but when I see a larger book, my reading speed seems to automatically decrease.

Anyway here are the books I did manage to read:

Game Changer by Neal Shusterman Book Review

 Ok I'm going to say it, Game Changer by Neal Shusterman is an ambitious book that blends the genres of YA and dystopia oh so well.

I have to be honest, what first drew me to the book was the front cover. It instantly made me think of the Matrix,  is that everything falling into place as everything changes? Along with the story itself it is extremely original. 

All it takes is one hit on the football field, and suddenly Ash’s life doesn’t look quite the way he remembers it.

Impossible though it seems, he’s been hit into another dimension—and keeps on bouncing through worlds that are almost-but-not-really his own.

The changes start small, but they quickly spiral out of control as Ash slides into universes where he has everything he’s ever wanted, universes where society is stuck in the past…universes where he finds himself looking at life through entirely different eyes.

This novel follows protagonist Ash, a white high school student, American football player, all round good teenager - or so he likes to think. But with one (quite significant) bump to the head during a match, everything changes, well at least for him they do.

Reading Round Up 2021 #2

 Hello lovely readers.

Welcome to another weekly reading round up. I hope you're all coping in this ongoing lockdown. Reading has definitely been my saviour. Only being able to go out for one walk a day, I'm not sure what else I'd be doing if I wasn't such a book worm.

Having read a book almost every day of the week last week, I have already read 9 books so far this month. I think it is safe to say that I'm going to reach my Goodreads (give me a follow if you like) target of 100 books read this year.

I've tried to mix it up a little with my reading. Alternating between my Kindle and my phone as well as switching from proofs/ARCS I have been lucky enough to receive, my own personal book collection and novels sent via Netgalley.
