My Thoughts on Crooked Kingdom, Frankenstein and Simon vs. The Home Sapiens Agenda | Spoiler-free – Vlog #8

So I forgot to update my blog with the recent video that I uploaded on my Youtube Channel ! But here it goes now!

  1. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – 5/5 on Goodreads!
    I won’t write a lot here because I share almost everything in this Biblio-thoughts episode:

 

2. Frankenstien by Mary Shelly: 3/3 on Goodreads!

I’m glad to have picked it up! I really wanted to read the original classic and it was some experience! It’s a pretty intense book overall. It starts with a series of letters written by Captain Robert to her sister, where he describes his emotions, loneliness  and his urge to share his days with someone close. In those letters, we also get to meet a man who was found in the icy sea water, almost dead, saved by the ship’s crew. Initially quite, this man starts opening up to the captain and explains how he got here. Victor Frankenstein tells his story to the captain in hopes to warn him about his mistakes and asks him to learn from them.
In Victor’s story, we meet his family and friends and his experiment. The experiment which, in his head was to be something magnificent, turns out to be “hideous” and a humongous mistake as he describes it.
This “creature” comes as a curse to not just Victor’s life but also to everyone around him. Would Victor meet the monster’s demands or sacrifice his peace for the greater good?

This was the gist of the story. Here’s how I felt about it in a few words:

3. Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli: 5/5 on Goodreads

I share almost everything that makes this book nearly perfect but I forgot to mention 1 point!
I loved, absolutely loved, Simon’s school teacher for standing up for the right and against bullying. Thank you, Becky Albertalli for strong characters!

For rest of the reasons, watch the video here:
