The Book Nook

 

 

I loved this book. Sorry, I had to get it out in the first sentence. I absolutely loved this book. It kept me intrigued the whole way through, I literally fought my exhaustion on many occasions┬ájust to finish one more chapter before blacking out into slumber. the only gripe I had with the way Du Maurier handcrafted this melodramatic murder mystery was how it ended. The reader is basically left to answer the question of did she or didn’t she. I think no matter which way you end up making your mind up about it, it’s hard to not feel like you’ve been left hanging as the reader.

Now, on the other hand, this novel in film form just does not cut it in my opinion. There have been three attempts to crack the code in film form. The most recent premiered this summer. It was directed by Roger Mitchell, who also directed one of my favorite romantic comedies Notting Hill.

The new and improved My Cousin Rachel is rated PG-13 and stars Sam Claflin and Rachel Weisz. While both of the actors do a fantastic┬ájob in their individual roles, the film just doesn’t come together with the way the novel does. It’s just a matter of the classic cliche, The book is always better than the film.

If you’ve read the novel I’d like to know whether you think she did it or not, let me know in the comments below! If you haven’t, I definitely┬árecommend you do as quickly as possible.

 

 

 

 

Red Queen

I gotta say, this past month’s book has been hard for me to get through. I find myself getting distracted by other things almost every time I open the pages. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure its a great book for young adults and, well, adults who really dug the whole Hunger Games vibe. I think if I had been in that kind of mindset at the time I would have really gotten into it. Unfortunately, I picked this book up from Target one day because it was on sale, and I had seen it a million times at Barnes and Nobel.

I have to admit, I was fresh off a Game of Thrones season 7 high and fiending for knights in shining armor fantasy. And yes, I ended up judging a book by its cover. I thought I was getting renaissance romance, but I was left with Katniss Everdeen. Again, I’m not trying to bash this book in any way, it’s just not the vibe I was looking for at the time. If you loved The Hunger Games I’m sure you will find this book hard to put down. ┬áIf you’ve read this novel, please leave some commentary down below. Did you like it? Did you hate it? Whats up?
