3 Books I Love

Wednesday, 8 July 2015

So I've been doing quite a bit of reading this year, and a lot of you are asking for book recommendations. I do have quite a particular taste in books- (YA) But maybe that's because of what I write, and how young I act half the time. But I thought I'd give you three books I've recently read and enjoyed. So maybe you want to read them too?
  1. My Heart & Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga - This book is about a girl and a boy who are complete opposites but find themselves in a unique friendship because of their one similar situation- They both want to kill themselves. What I like about this book is that the more you read it the more you find out, the more you like it and the more you connect with the characters. It was a book that I started to get sad as I headed towards the end, and thought about once it finished. It also dealt with very mature themes, and real themes that happen day to day in life.
  2. A Flash Of Blue by Maria Farrer - This is about a girl with guilt. A year after her brother died she finds herself being drawn towards her dead brothers best friend, however this doesn't make things simpler, in fact this is where the trouble really starts. I liked this book because the events that occurred were so unexpected. At first I was a bit skeptical to how i felt about this book, but the more I read it the more I loved it. I just wished it was longer.
  3. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell - Now this book is written in the third person. Usually I don't like reading in the third person that much, because I always thought that you couldn't properly connect with the characters- I was wrong. This book is about Eleanor and Park, both very different to the world and different to each other. Slowly they begin falling for one another, falling in love like they have nothing but yet everything to lose. This is quite a steady book- it's not fast paced, but I think there was something very clever behind this, because you feel like you spend so much time with the characters and you really go on this journey with them. I think Rainbow Rowell is a very clever writer and she has created a beautiful book.
Okay so that is it. I hope you liked this, and if you have any recommendations feel free to comment down below or tweet me.

  1. I haven't read any of these books but am eager to after reading your review. I recently read 'Room', by Emma Donoghue and was very impressed! Its about a young boy and his mother who live in one room after being kidnapped, it is writen from Jack's perspective and follows their story in the only world Jack knows, and [SPOILER] their escape! Would recommend it to anyone looking for a new read! :)

  3. I love Rainbow Rowell's books. I can't even decide which one is my favourite. xD
    I've just started reading Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. It's about a girl, whose father is a circus magician, but they have real magical powers. And her father wants her to duel with his rival's apprentice. I'm only a couple of chapters in, but I love the book's atmosphere. =)

  4. I LOVED Eleanor and Park! It was so sad but still satisfying! My favourite books are The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (seriously, read it!) and I finished The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes yesterday and it was amazing!

    Also, where is your jumpsuit from if I might ask because I love it!

  5. I adore the Tobey and Midge series by Rosamond du Jardin. They aren't quite YA in the truest sense because they were written and take place in the late 1940s and early 1950s, but they are definitely intended for teenagers. The series follows first Tobey and then her younger sister Midge through their high school years in a suburban town in 1950s America. The series is a look into this vanished world of sock hops and malt shops, but also depicts life in a big family, sister relationships, and just growing up in general while trying to figure out who you are. I love these books and have reread them so many times. They are light and quick and perfect summer reads.

  6. Amelia, I think that you would really like Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer. It's about a young girl who is sent to a boarding school for emotionally troubled teens and is put in a special English class. All of the people in the class are given journals and they discover a magical land that they call Belzhar that they can go to when they write in the journals. It's one of my all-time favorite books and YA at its finest.
