Reading progress update: I've read 318 out of 518 pages.
Sophie's World - Paulette Møller,Jostein Gaarder

 

I'm over 50% done with this book and I'm surprised with the twist. Sophie and the others are characters in a story read by Hilde. It reminds of the twist with The Lego Movie.

[REVIEW] My (Not So) Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella
My Not So Perfect Life - Sophie Kinsella

I've been under a lot of stress because of graduate work so I tend to gravitate towards lighthearted books that won't make my heart (or soul) feel sick. This book is one of them.

 

I enjoyed it enough, but as an avid Kinsella reader, something was missing. A spark, perhaps? I didn't care for Katie/Cat Brenner that much. I couldn't really say I have a grasp on her person after finishing. Her love interest and the entire romance plot felt tacked on and hollow. Her "love" for Alex happened way too quickly.

 

I did enjoy her relationship with Demeter, which I'm surprised to say.

I loved how they became friends in the end. Also, like other reviewers have pointed out, if you read the blurb you basically read 50% of the book. It's rather mindnumbing. 

(spoiler show)

Overall, the entire story felt too superficial and it made me sad because I really wanted to care.

Girl Code: Gaming, Going Viral, and Getting It Done
Girl Code: Gaming, Going Viral, and Getting It Done - Andrea Gonzales,Sophie Houser

That was a pretty interesting read, and an encouraging one, in a world where encouraging girls to go into technical careers is still not such a given (yes, even in 2018).

Also, bonus points for introduction to Python at the end, with a few examples of short, easy programs you can try. The only coding I've done so far was with Scratch, and I'm not very familiar with Python apart from a short foray with Ren'Py, but this basic syntax was very easy to get. I like that the authors chose something 'simple': I believe it won't look discouraging to someone who knows nothing to coding.
