January 2011 Summary Book Reviews

I've been busy in January that I've only five books read during that month. However, despite of it, I've reached half of the books I challenge this year. Yes. So silly of me that I challenged myself to read ten books for this year. But I'm sure I've reason out it on my post early this year. Surely, I'll pass over what I intended to finish and I'm planning on adding the number of books on my challenge. I'd been lazy of doing reviews too with the books I've read. So here are the five books I've read for the month of January with their small review.

Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Maragaret Stohl

I made a review of this and you can view it here.

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

I didn't like this book. I didn't like the concept or the story of the book. It seems weird for me the comparison of eyes of human and wolf--it didn't bought me. The obsession of Grace is also an act of inhuman-ness that I can't really understand. The story was plotless. Over-all, I didn't really like the book.

The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks

I choose this book hoping this would be good, but it turned out to be not. The mystery was really annoying that as though it laid there and me--as a reader--was just waiting for the story to end. The suspect was too given to be true and I reckon it's not a good a sign of a good book.

Ender's Shadow by Orson Scot Card
I made a  review of this book and you can view it here.

Mystic River by Dennis Lehanes

If you'll ask what book to be recommended when it comes to mystery-drama? this is perfect. The book has given the clues, yet, I doubt you're going to guess the murderer. I like this book but not much as you think since it seems mystery-drama is not my cup of tea. However, this is a good book when exploring new genres.
