Day 1 – 30 Book Challenge

Since I’ve started my Tumblr, I’ve come across a 30 day Book Challenge. I’m interested in trying the challenge out for October, at the end of the month I’ll list everything in full. All of my regularly scheduled content will continue, so be sure to keep checking back! October’s going to be a busy month here on AshleyiSee. Here’s to learning about new books, authors and discovering more worlds to hide in!

I read The Road in three hours from start to finish. Once I got over the awkward annoyance in lack of punctuation I couldn’t stop turning the pages. The language in its simplicity and the darkness of the environment is enough to keep one wondering what’s going to happen. It’s the hope that humanity survives and continues that kept me reading. The Road is a perfect pick me up when life isn’t going well. Think your life is horrible, well at least you’re not living in a post apocalyptic world that McCarthy has created! I loved the book. I wanted more. I wanted to see just how horrible the world could become whilst at the same time wishing to see hope and a rescue. I also loved that it was quick yet the imagery will stay with me forever.
