The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - Ann Brashares

I found some more very old reviews, and thought to post them all now, so that they are once and for all all together ;).


Some of my friends recommended this book to me, but I wasn't blown away by the premise of four girls sharing a pair of jeans.

The book was OK, but not really something I like to read. The story was a bit simple. It's a nice read between two other books, but nothing special

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - Ann Brashares I really enjoyed this, much more than I expected. I've heard of this book for years, but I never took the time because I expected it to be too aimed at the young for my tastes. It is definitely a book about and for teens, but it speaks to all ages. It makes you think about things. All of the girls are in situations where decisions have consequences. They make mistakes and have to right them. They grow and learn that everyone else has faults too. I'll continue the series.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - Ann Brashares

These books were seminal to my teenage years. I was roughly the same age as the characters in each book (+/- one year). But I haven't read them since then.


I almost stopped my reread because on one of the first pages there's a comment about people eating dogs in Korea. Seriously? This book was published in 2001 and everyone involved should have known better. I can only hope that bit has been edited out of subsequent editions.


The story feels rushed like there's not enough space for all the emotions Brashares is trying to cram into the book (this didn't bother me as a teen). It doesn't feel dated though, so that's something. I'm going to reread the whole series (yes, even Sisterhood Everlasting). I want to see how the rest hold up.

April was a good month for me, I didn't have a single sick day and I read eleven books.  My final April book lasted two days past the end of the month, unfortunately, but it's finished now and I hope to never think of it again *shudder*.


Hopefully May will mean a return to more uplifting books, looking at this month's challenge list I don't think that will be a problem.  Like last month I won't get started on May's books until tonight, the 2nd, also like last month (and every month so far this year) I didn't manage to actually read all the books I challenged myself to read.  I only have nine on this month's list, but as most of them are library books I doubt whether I'll actually be able to get all of them, not even considering whether I'd actually be able to read them all in 29 days.


May: My Free-Read Month (my self-imposed Jan-Apr challenges have ended or been temporarily paused and I can once again visit the library)


1. A Romance Set in the Future - Divergent (Divergent, #1) by Veronica Roth (others may say this isn't a 'romance' per say, but it has an element of romance, or at least it appeared to from the movie and I wanted to read it and it was already on my 'to read' shelf and I now own a copy, so therefore it's a 'romance'), 489 pages (read from May 2-5)


2. A National Book Award Winner - The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, 229 pages (read from 5-7 May)


3. A Book from the Library - The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman, 384 pages (read from 7-10 May)


4. A Book that is Published in 2016 - Marked in Flesh (The Others, #4) by Anne Bishop, 399 pages (read from 10-12 May)


5. A Book - City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1) by Cassandra Clare, 485 pages (read from 12-15 May)


6. and its Prequel - Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1) by Cassandra Clare, 479 pages (read from 15-18 May)


7. A Book that Takes Place During Summer - The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants (Sisterhood, #1) by Ann Brashares, 294 pages (read from 18-20 May)


8. A Book with a Blue Cover - The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1) by Phillip Pullman, 397 pages (read from 20-23 May)


9. A Book about a Culture you're Unfamiliar With - The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, 324 pages (read from 23-26 May)


10. A Graphic Novel - Watchmen by Alan Moore (might have to change this one as I can't get it at my library or Amazon, will have to think about it)


Anyone want to take bets on whether I'll get all the way through this list, or how many I will actually read?  I reckon six from this list and another two or three sneaky impulse pickups from the library that aren't actually on the list (although, considering how extensive my 'to read' shelf is any book I do pick up will likely already be on that list).

Reading progress update: I've read 147 out of 294 pages.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - Ann Brashares

Am I supposed to like Bridgett? Because I dont.


And I am feeling so bad for Carmen. What was her dad thinking? I want to cry for her.
