Hey guys! Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m probably the only single person in the world that actually likes Valentine’s Day so I hope that if your single or have a significant other that you have a great day filled with chocolate. Today I thought I would do a post talking about my top five favorite books with a love story. These are all primary contemporary love stories so no Syfy or fantasy on this list (sorry).
#1 Everything, everything by Nicola Yoon: This book is about a girl named Madeline who basically is allergic to everything and hasn’t left her house in seventeen years. A boy named Olly moves in next door and he has his fair share of family problems. The two start messaging online and start forming a relationship. I know this sounds a little cliché but it’s really great. The main character is relatable and not afraid to go after her dreams. It’s a really great story about first love, family, and putting yourself out there.
#2 Anna and the French kiss by Stephanie Perkins: I read this book for the first time back in 2014 (or 2013 I can’t remember) and I still love it. This book follows a girl named Anna who is sent to a boarding school in Paris for her senior year. She meets a great group of friends and slowly starts to fall for one of them named, but of course he’s got a girlfriend (cause they always do, am I right?) I love this book because it’s so pure and funny and is filled with lovable characters. This is also a great book to read if your in a reading slump.
#3 Eleanor and park by Rainbow Rowell: Oh man this is another book that is so pure and amazing and perfect. It’s about these two characters who are both misfits and have weird family lives. I love the romance in this book because it’s two people who come from crappy lives and then they find someone who finally gets them.
#4 Me before you by Jojo Moyes: I read this book last summer when the movie came out and I loved it. It’s such a cute fun read. Now I know I just said it’s fun but they do discuss some topics that are really not fun but it’s still a great book. This book is about a girl who becomes a aid for a man named Will Traynor who is paralyzed after a motorcycle accident. This is one of those great contemporaries that make you laugh, fall in love, and cry all at the same time. And once your done reading this you can watch the movie because the movie is equally great.
#5 The Hamilton affair by Elizabeth Cobbs: This one is for all you historical fiction and Hamilton fans. This book tells the heartbreaking love story of Alexander Hamilton and Eliza
Schuyler. You’ll love this book if you’re a fan of the musical Hamilton or if you love historical fiction romances. This book is just great and really shows you the lives and hardships of the people who where there at the beginning of the United States.
Well that’s all I have for you today, once again I wish you a lovely Valentine’s Day and I hope you enjoyed this post and check out all these books. Don’t forget to like, comment, and follow. Happy reading!
Hey guys! Today I will be reviewing and discussing the fever code by James Dashner. This book is a prequel to James Dashner popular maze runner trilogy. If you’ve never heard of the maze runner, 1 where have you been? 2 don’t worry cause no one really cares about these books anymore. Don’t get me wrong I love them but their just not that great anymore. Sadly YA dystopian books are dead, sad but true.
Anyway like I said this book takes place before the events of the first book in the trilogy. This book answers a lot of questions fans have been asking for ages so even if you don’t really care about this franchise anymore but you were a big fan back in the day you should still pick this up so you can finally have some closure in your life.
At first I gave this book four stars but if I’m honest it really only deserves three stars. I had quite a few problems with this book but honestly it’s probably just because I haven’t been in this world for so long and I was a very different person (and reader) back when I first read these books. Anyway that’s all for the none spoilers for this post. If your interested in this book go read it and then come back to this post.
First let’s talk about what I didn’t like about this book because honestly there’s quite a bit. First off I feel like this book was advertised like it was a must read and it would change the whole series but it really doesn’t (except for maybe something at the very end but we’ll talk about that later). I feel like this book lacked a full circle story and plot. It’s been so long since I’ve read these books that I forgot so much about the characters so I wish I re-read the last book before I read this one.
I never read the kill order so should I have read that before I read this book? Let me know in the comments.
My favorite part of this book was just being able to see all the characters before they went to the maze. I loved all the scenes with the whole group just hanging out and escaping the crappy situation they were. It was interesting to hear about their first few days in the maze and how they reacted.
One thing that I’m still really confused about Teressa . After reading her letter at the end of this book I just have more questions. Was she working for wicked during the whole trilogy or did dr. Paige trick her like she did Thomas? I’m a little mad about that James Dashner took my favorite character to this direction and I wish we had a little more clarity.
Well I guess that’s all for this post. Sorry it was so short I guess I was just a little disappointed so I don’t have much to say about it. I hope you guys enjoyed this post and don’t forget to like, comment, and follow. Happy reading!
Late nightQuite house
My anxiety asks un answerable questions like,
Did I just lose a friend?
How long till all I know is gone?
Is she mad at me?
Are we making a mistake?
Will I look back on this night and think about how foolish I was?
And of course my thoughts do what they always do in my quiet moments, think of him.
Does he know how I feel?
Does he love her?
Should I tell him how I feel?
Should I walk away so I don’t get hurt from the pain of not being the one he chooses?
A house asleep.
My anxiety awake.
Feeding me lies a smarter girl would know aren’t true.
Hello everyone! Today I will be sharing with you my January wrap up and February tbr. January wasn’t a great reading month for me because I’ve been really busy and I’ve used all my free time for writing. I wanted to read four books but I only ended up reading two books.
#1 Salt to the sea by Ruta Septeys: My first read of 2017 and I loved it. This book follows four characters during World War II and it we find out that all these characters are hiding something. I gave this book four stars and I have a full review on it if you want to learn more.Salt to the sea book review
#2 The infinite sea by Rick yancy: Sadly I really didn’t enjoy this book. I don’t know why but I just can’t get into this series. This is the second book in the fifth wave trilogy which follows a group of teenagers trying to survive the alien invasion. I wish I liked this book but I just couldn’t get into it. I gave it three out of five stars.
Okay now let’s talk about my February TBR. It looks like February will be even crazier then January but I’m still going to give myself four books to read because apparently I like to torture myself.
#1 The fever code by James Dashner: I’m actually currently reading this book and I’m halfway through. This book is a prequel to the maze runner trilogy by James Dashner which is one of my favorite series. I’m really enjoying this book so far and there should be a review up soon.
#2 The house of the scorpion by Nancy Farmer: This is another book that I’m actually currently reading and so far enjoying. This book is about a boy who never leaves his house until he meets a group of kids and then he finds out there’s something wrong with him and he’s been hidden from society. I hope I like the rest of this book and hopefully I’ll write a review for it.
#3 The last ship by Rick Yancy: I know I just said that I didn’t enjoy the infinite sea but I’m tired of having these books sit on my shelf unread so I’m finally going to read the end of this series. This book is the third and final book in the fifth wave trilogy and hopefully I’ll actually like this book unlike the others.
#4 A whole new world by Liz Brashwell: I don’t know a whole lot about this book except that it’s a Aladdin re-telling. Basically it’s about Aladdin if he never found the genie lamp. I bought this book ages ago and since it’s Valentine’s Day I thought it would be nice to read a re-telling about one of my favorite Disney couples.
And that’s all I really have to talk to you about today. Let me know how many books you read in January and what you plan to read in February. I hope you guys enjoyed this post and don’t forget to like, comment, and follow. Happy reading!
