Release date: September 13th, 2016
My rating: 2/5 Stars.
My favorite quotes:
“We choose what we want to do and who we want to be. Sometimes you gotta fight hard for it, but it’s worth it, to choose for yourself.”
“Home’s what you make it…. Could be a ship. Could be what you carry around on your back day after day. Could be family. Or maybe just one person you love more than any other. That’s home.”
I’m quite disappointed in this book.
Before its release on September the 13th, Traci Chee’s The Reader seems to have received quite a lot of hype already, and after the release, it has been getting high ratings and very flattering reviews on Goodreads. But I’m going to go on a limb and say that half way through the book, I lost most of the interest and enjoyment reading it. Upon finish, The Reader is very mediocre compared to other young adult novels.
Let’s talk about the good things first. Keep on Reading!
