Book review of The Stars at Oktober Bend
Until roughly half way through this book I was not enjoying it . I was confused by the lack of capital letters and the all over the place. However, when was explained, using no capital letters, it suddenly made sense. I was able to piece together things that had already happened in the book so I could understand and enjoy the rest of this book. The unentertaining book turned book turned into an emotional tale of love and friendship. It follows Alice on her journey to recover from an accident, which is heart-warming when you actually find out what is happening. I ended up liking the book but I still found half of it boring and was difficult to read, i couldn't get lost in it the way I wanted to. In short, it took a while to get going and in my opinion that is not a good book. On the other hand, the second half of the book was engaging and really improved the book. I rate this book 6.5/10.

Review of The Stars at Oktober Bend and Wolf Hollow
'The Stars at Oktober Bend' was a very good book but at some points it was hard to understand. It was a very good story to read and I really enjoyed reading it. At some points it was it was a very sad book, especially at the end. Overall, it was a very good book. 'Wolf Hollow' was a very good book to read, but halfway through it got quite boring, but when I read on to the end I started to enjoy it a bit more. When I got to the end of the book, I wanted to read it again. Overall, this was a good book. My favourite book out of the two was 'The Stars at Oktober Bend' because it suited my interests more.
