BOOKS: winter break.

Winter break's over and so are my moments of pure joy. 
(Winter break's during June/July for us)

Here's what I have to say after 2 months without the daily struggle of making my feet march until my university: no amount of time will ever be enough for me to mentally prepare myself to get back to yet another semester Law school. #depressedsofia

Anyways, lemme go straight to the point: here will be listed the books I read these past few weeks. 

The Penton Legacy Trilogy, by Susannah Sandlin - got them on Amazon, using Kindle Premium. It's about this war between the Vampire Tribunal against the residents of Penton, Alabama. Full of action, drama and sexy characters, it was a quite pleasant reading. However, I must add this: it's cheap writing. I don't know how exactly to explain that expression, but that's what kept popping up on my mind while I read the books. If it weren't for my insane lack of curiosity control, I'd probably not have finished reading the first book.

Stephen King's novels - Stephen King is one of my favourite authors. Until the end of the last semester, I'd read everything he'd written, but, due to uni entrance exams and whatnots, I lost track of his novels and hadn't read his latest releases - pictured above.

Divergent series, by Veronica Roth - Watched the movie, got curious, read the damn series, enjoyed it far better than I expected. I don't know how to rate it, so I'll just say that it's way better than Twilight, and somewhat as good as Hunger Games. Or as bad as. Same level. 

Lauren Weisberger novels - I read The Devil Wears Prada ages ago. Then, while going through Kindle Premium, I saw that there was a sequel to it - Revenge Wears Prada, which I missed because 2013 was my crazy senior year. I decided to re-read the first book so I could read the second (as if I didn't have a billion other never-read books awaiting me); read the second & got so caught up in her work that I also read Chasing Harry Winston and Last Night At Chateau Marmont. (I read Everyone Worth Knowing in 2007).

♥ Lauren Weisberger.
