Review: The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion



Image from Goodreads
Title: The Rosie Project
Learn more about it on Goodreads
Available on Amazon

Synopsis: Don Tillman, thirty-something brilliant Geneticist, is looking for a wife. As a man of Science and reason, he is going to use his knowledge of experimental design to find his ideal mate. He will use a questionnaire, he will go on dates, he will collect information, and analyze data until The Wife Project is completed.

Then he meets Rosie. Logically, she is not an ideal candidate for The Wife Project. She smokes, she curses, and she's constantly late. 


Still, Don thinks she's the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. Plus, she's interesting and intelligent. But she is also on a quest of her own; to find her biological father. So she enlists Don's help and his search for a wife takes a backseat.


Soon Don learns that he can have fun with Rosie and chaos would not ensue just because he did not have every minute planned out. 

My Review:  Oh how I love this book. Let me tell you about it! 

The Rosie Project is an amazing book. It is funny, thoughtful, and intelligent. It is interesting form start to finish. I could not put this book down and I did not want the story to end.

Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays is a meme hosted by Should Be Reading

This week's musing is a random rant about books/reading. 

Last week I heard about a new book; We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I've never heard of this author before, but based on the description of this book, I want to get my hands on a copy as soon as possible. 

Also, it seems that every book-tuber and people with Twitter only have high praises for this book.

Here's the snippet from Goodreads: 

    A beautiful and distinguished family.
    A private island.
    A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
    A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
    A revolution. An accident. A secret.
    Lies upon lies.
    True love.
    The truth.
 
    We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National       Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. 

    Read it.
   And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE. 


I do enjoy a good mystery. 

I'm thinking this plot might be something along the lines of The Secret History by Donna Tartt. But maybe since it's for a younger demographic, it might be a little less heavy. 

We Were Liars will be available on May 13th, 2014. 

Are you intrigued? Would you pick up We Were Liars? or Have you read it already?

Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays is a meme hosted by Should Be Reading

This week's musing asks:

Describe one of your reading habits. 

I get most of my reading done in transit. I take the train everywhere and I really like spending my commute reading. I read while I wait for the train and while on the train. 

I also spend my break time reading. I usually have my Kindle with me and it's really easy to just pick up where I left off. And of course, I read in bed. I think it's the best way to unwind. After hours in front of the computer and looking at my phone, picking up a book is very relaxing. 


PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT. I want to know your answer to this week's Musing Mondays.

Thanks!

The Sunday Preview


The Sunday Preview is a weekly post where I will be sharing tidbits about a book I'm currently reading. 

For the past week I have been enthralled by Leon and Louise by Alex Capus.

This book is about the love story of Leon and Louise. They met as young adults during the Great War. Although they were eventually separated, they never forgot about one another.

Life and wars have kept them apart. But will they end up together in the end? Will they have their happy ending?

We'll see.

I've read more than half of the book so far and I'm excited to know where the story goes. I received my copy from NetGalley.com but this book is available on Amazon.com and bookstores.



What about you reader? Have you heard about Leon and Louise
Have you read it? 
What did you think of it?
