Book Reviews





Hello there ❁❁ 今日は先週のブログで言ってたブックレビューをアップするね!もしかしたら日本語版が出てない本もあるかもしれないけど、そしたら洋書のリンクを貼っておくね。
Here's the promising book reviews!  I tend to choose easy readings so sorry for people who loves more good readings but these are the books I read so far this year :)

前のブックレビュー/Previous book review:"Girl Online" by Zoe Sugg

Amazon (Japan)
Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
My rating: ★★★☆☆

この本はただティーンエイジャーの可愛いお話っていうわけじゃなくて、今問題となっている精神疾患や精神病が関わってくるお話でこのお話に自分と照らし合わせて考えることができる人もいるかも。英語で読むのにはすごく簡単な本だったし、キャラクター一人一人を楽しめたけど、もっと主人公Audreyの過去、不安障害の原因は何だったのかを知りたいって思った。読んでいる間、いつどこで知れるかワクワクしていたのに!だけど、この本自体は楽しんで読めたし、Audreyの苦しみと良くなっていくのがお話を通して感じれたから★★★☆☆かな :) 

Honestly, it was not only very cute story but also, with some serious issues that many people could relate, including me.  It was very easy-read to me and I enjoyed each character: Audrey, Frank, Felix, Mom, Dad, and Linus.  However, I kinda wish there was more story about Audrey's past which caused her anxiety problem.  I was dying to know what actually happened and it almost made me frustrated.  Overall, I enjoyed it and could see Audrey's struggles and improvements through the story so I gave ★★★☆☆!!

milk and honey by rupi kaur
My rating: ★★★★★

この本は小説ではなくてポエム集。ぶっちゃけ自分がポエムを読むなんて思わなかったけど、これは人生の中で読んだ一番美しい本かもしれないっていうくらい、読んでよかったって思ってる。女性の身体や恋愛の仕方について考えさせられる内容で、一瞬で読み終わっちゃった!また読み返したい、そんな本。彼女の言葉は美しくて、日本語には訳せないような、英語読めてよかったって思える作品。

Okay, this book is the most beautiful book I've ever owned.  I'm so grateful that I could find this book!  (Thank you for Orion.) It made me think about being a woman, having a body, and love.  Honestly, I'd never been interested in poetry when I was in Japan, and now I'm obsessed with it since I realized how beautiful the words can be. Anyway, I just can't explain how stunning this book is.  I would read again and again.  So, if you love reading, and beautiful words, I highly recommend this!

Girl Online On Tour by Zoe Sugg
My rating: ★★★☆☆

YA(ヤングアダルト)小説だからとっても簡単!でもやっぱりZoeの本じゃなかったら読んでなかったと思うな。とにかく超キュートなラブストーリー!これは続編だから読んでみたい人は1作目から読んでね!やっぱりYA作品は英語が簡単でスラスラ読めるのが好き。お話は可愛すぎて背中がかゆくなるくらい胸キュン的な感じを久しぶりに味わったって感じ笑 1作目に続いて、主人公Pennyの成長が微笑ましいし、やっぱり好きなキャラクターは彼女の親友のElliotって確信。あんな友情があったらいいな♡ 11月に出る3作目が楽しみ!

I know!  I have been reading YA novels!!  Seriously, if I wasn't a huge fan of Zoella aka Zoe Sugg's YouTube channel, I didn't even try to read such a cute story like this.  However, YA novels are so easy to read for me since I used to hate reading books in English!  And yes, this story was almost cringy and too cheesy but I liked it.  I enjoyed reading and finished in a flush!  It was super easy to read, and since it's second book of Girl Online, I'm happy to see how Penny is changing through the journey.  And still, my favorite character is Elliot!  How amazing their friendship is!  Now, I'm excited to read third book which is coming out in November!


Amazon (Japan)
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
My rating: ★★★(3.5)

この本はたくさん人生において使える、考えさせられるメッセージが詰まっている人生を変えれるような本。だから読んでよかったと思うけど、あたしはそこまで楽しんで読めていなかった気もする。確かにインスピレーションがたくさんだけど、なんだかスローな感じ。それでもエンディングにわお!って思ったから好きだったな。

I borrowed this book from my best friend in Ottawa.  I'd never heard about this story but I would say this book is "life changing" kind of book.  It has so many great messages that you can take with after you read.  However, I feel like I didn't enjoy as much as I should've.  It was okay and great at the same time.  This was definitely inspirational but also slow.  I really like the ending!

あと4冊で2016年の目標達成! 4 more books till 10!
Hope you enjoyed my book review ;)
