I wasn't sure whether I liked it at first either, but about a third in I started to enjoy it the side plot is a bit ridiculous sometimes, but there are funny moments when the hundred-year-old man tells about his life story, having been part of many significant events in world history of the 20th century. it's an easy read too

I'm shocked I haven't done a list update for so long.

1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
2. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
3. Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
4. Princess in the Spotlight by Meg Cabot
5. The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann
6. Saving Grace by Darlene Ryan
7. Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson
8. Unbearable Lightness by Portia de Rossi
9. The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
10. Princess in Love by Meg Cabot
11. Ulysses by James Joyce
12. The Trial by Franz Kafka
13. The Death of Bees by Lisa O'Donnell

14. Charlotte's Web by E.B. White - cutest thing on earth.
15. The Last Night of Love, the First Night of War - Camil Petrescu - school re-read.
16. Procrustean bed - Camil Petrescu - loved it even though I'm not a fan of school reads.
17. The Sisters (The Ordeal, #1) by Aleksey Tolstoy - It was really good. Very touching and I got very excited reading it.
18. 1918 (The Ordeal, #2) by Aleksey Tolstoy - not bad, but I wasn't a fan of the parts where revolution was described.
19. Bleak Morning (The Ordeal, #3) by Aleksey Tolstoy - it was okay, very slow at parts though.
20. A Comprehensive Handbook for Traditional Chinese Medicine Facial Rejuvenation by Ping Zhang - loved it even though I'm not a huge fan of scientific books. I found out so many new really informative things.
21. The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov - slow begining but it was a real masterpiece
22. The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides - my expectations were so much higher for this book especially because I didn't like the film that much. It was a good book. Amazing writing style and amazing language and the plot is great but I felt like it was missing something. I gave it 4 stars out of 5.

Curently reading:
Divergent by Veronica Roth
