Books Of The Month: June

Hello everyone! This month I have 2 books that I recommend because sadly, I didn’t get to read much. You would think with me breaking my leg I would have more time on my hands but with work, spending time with friends, my cats constant existence, and prepping for WJMC 2018 (I leave on Friday!) I have not had much free time. I hope you enjoy these 2 books!

  1. Every last word by Tamara Ireland Stone. This book is about a girl named Sam who seems to be your basic popular girl, but in reality she is struggling with OCD and just the fact she can’t be honest with her “friends”. She goes on a journey with someone named Caroline, and becomes more comfortable with not just herself, but dealing with her mental disorder. This story really moved me and helped me come to terms with the fact some friends just will never understand your struggles, but there are always people who may not understand, but will always support you and help you grow and heal as a person.
  2.  As I Saw It by Marvin Scott. I read this book to help me get ready for WJMC, so I could start to see the world like a journalist, and while this book was not my normal style of reading, I learned so much about how a journalist sees not only his research, but the world overall. If you are considering going into a form of communications or even into the arts, I would recommend cracking open this book, you will see the world in a brand new way.

I hope you all enjoyed this post! I hope you try one of these books!

Books of the Month: May

Hello everyone! Books of the month is officially back! I took a mini break from it due to lack of time to read anything except school books. Since those kinda suck I figured it would just be best to wait until I had more time to do my BOTM. I hope you enjoy!

  1. If you are looking for a book to tear your heart into teeny tiny pieces, All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven is just for you. I had to read this book over the summer before my freshman year for my English class, and I loved it. It was like a John Green novel without all the sappiness and gooey heart eyes. To this day, I love the story of Violet and Theodore.
  2. I think pretty much everyone has read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. But if you somehow haven’t, you definitely need to check it out. The only reason I am putting it in my Books of the Month is because while the US hasn’t started throwing us into districts and having kids murder each other, it is starting to go in that direction. Maybe we can find a way to fix our problems in this book.
  3. Finally, Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. This book is AWESOME, and so many memories for me hide in this book. I read this book so many times through middle school and my copy went everywhere with me. This book is basically about the main character (Tally) getting ready to get her surgery to become a Pretty and spend the rest of her life partying. Once Tally meets her new friend Shay, everything changes, and soon she is rebelling everything she ever knew. This book is one of my favorites, and worth the read.

All of these books have had such a positive influence on my life these past few years. I hope you all cherish them as much as I have!

Hello Everyone!! This month went by so fast, but it is almost March, which means it is time for… The Books of The Month!

  1. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. This book was absolutely life changing. It is based after World War 2 and the backdrop of the book is Operational Hannibal. Four people of different countries are trying to find their way back home safely. They are all hiding from the German Soldiers and trying to sneak onto ships. This book will make you sit in your room sobbing at 3 a.m. It really makes you understand how truly lucky you are.
  2. Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn. This book has always been a favorite of mine. It is short, yet sweet. This book made me wish I could go on a crazy night adventure with a cute boy with good music taste :))

I am so sorry for the short list, this month I had to read lots of books for school. I would not recommend them to anyone. Thank you for reading and I will talk again soon!!

Books of The Month: January Edition

img_11611Hello Everyone! I´ve decided that from this month forward, I am going to blog about the books I have read this month!

For this month I have only 3 books, but all of them were extremely good and I highly recommend all of them.

  1. Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. I had to read this book for school, but I really enjoyed this book! It is the play about Rome under the rule of Caesar and how people conspired to kill him to take his throne. I think that if you do not have to read this book for school, it is definitely something everyone should consider reading.
  2. Wicked by Gregory Maguire. (Almost) everyone has seen the movie Wizard of Oz or has seen the Broadway Musical Wicked. This book will make you laugh, cry, and laugh while you cry during some of the more heartfelt scenes. This book is probably one of the most powerful books I have read on my own time since I started High School. It is the epitome of good vs evil and anyone will be able to relate to a character of this book.
  3. The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur. While Milk and Honey is Rupi Kaur´s most popular book. The Sun and Her Flowers is full of poems that promote healing, self love, and happiness. The poems rang from 3-4 lines to filling up an entire page, but each line is written from the bottom of her heart.

Thank you for reading. I hope you try reading these books or are inspired to try new genres!
