To change the routine of my life, I started thinking about doing something challenging for me during this month which was Mars, but I couldn't think of anything.
Until a friend of mine told me that the SEKKAT library opened again after months of maintenance,
it was my second year in college but I didn't get a chance to go inside that library so I said why not go inside and discover the books they have in.
The library was big, and the inside was nice I did really like it, they have books in all the subjects taught in Hassan II university, and also books in English.
I noticed that they have books of the famous American author Danielle STEEL, and at that moment I figured out my challenge it was to read four books by Danielle STEEL in this month.
After reading some pages of one of her books I told myself I can win this challenge why not specially that the style the author writes with was easy to understand for someone who has my modest level in English.
And to start the first book I chose was The long road home, I was so excited while reading it that I finished it in a week, that was quick for someone who didn’t read a book in a two years, the story was catchy, tells the story of a girl Gabriella, her journey in life from childhood to her twenties, what I did really liked about this book was that the main character Gabriella during the story lived in three different places , in every one of those places I learned new vocabulary that was fun.
The second book I borrowed from the library was RANSOM, I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed The long road home. if I knew what ransom means when I picked up that book I would not take it. I’m not a fan of the FBI and police stories but I can’t deny the fact that the book was good and I managed to finish it.
The third book I took was BITTERSWEET by also Danielle STEEL this time I failed to read to whole book, I stopped at the chapter 7 and the main raison I think was that the story wasn’t interesting for me and it was pretty predictable, beside that there was something that really annoyed me in third book and I had noticed it in also the second book I read, was that the author always repeats some sentences, and also describes how the characters were feeling after any action they did. I’m not in a position at ALL to criticize a famous author as Danielle STEEL, but it was just how I felt.
The month of April began and I just read too book and seven chapters of Danielle steel books, that means that I failed to accomplish my challenge, but I’m not disappointed of myself I had fun reading those books, I regret all those years that had passed without me reading in them I will try to read more also in this month.
P S: I feel guilty for not finishing BITTERSWEET I’m going to finish it one day ….but not soon!!!
