Summer readings.

 Today I am going to talk about a few books I have read since the last book post here.

First, I finished the Hunger Games Trilogy by reading Mockingjay. I hate to admit this but Mockingjay was my least favorite book from the series. Yet, it was still very good. The story is a bit different but it all comes together in the end. It was melancholic, tough and serious, with that amazing side of it that the Hunger Games has. Although it was sad and most people complain that they cannot read the series due to its sadness, there was a lot of happiness to it as well. I had a very good time reading the series and would recommend it to anyone. It is definitely worth the commitment!

 Secondly, I read The Virgin Suicides. What an amazing story. I had heard about this for a long time and have always wanted to read it. The story always sounded so delicate and extreme to me. This is definitely a book that I am interested in. However, I did not love the way the story was told. There were not that many details, but the tragedy of it was amazing. To imagine that this could happen to a family or anyone is insane and extremely sad. I would recommend this book to those who like to read tragedies and abusive stories. If you are a romance person, stay away!

 Third I have a great reading! If I Am Missing or Dead was another story about abuse. In this case, a woman who is abused by her significant others. I loved this book very much. It teaches you a great deal by showing you what others go through on a daily bases. This is my favorite book of this list, and although a little out of my league because there was some romance and things like that, it satisfied me very much and I would recommend it to any woman. Truly an amazing story that could happen to any girl out there looking for love.

Last, but not least is Fifty Shades of Grey. I was a little hesitant to talk about this book because of all the drama and dilemma out there but I decided it would not hurt to just post my opinion here.
I bought this book thinking it would have a bit more sexuality to it, but I have to confess, aside from a few parts, the story is pretty much a romance. I am currently on the second book of the series and I still feel that way about the romance of it. It was still a good story, even though it can be a little silly at times, the character of Grey is truly the reason why I am still reading it and would recommend it.
