Summer reads.

I really need to get in the blogging routine again… I always used to schedule my posts and I have to say life was a lot easier when I did that but since the holidays started I haven’t been doing it and now that I ‘m back to school and have loads of homework it’s quite hard to go back into that routine.

The reason why I didn’t post my weekly post on Friday was because I was on my period and it was the very painful kind where you can’t move so you just watch YouTube videos instead and cry your eyes out because your watching an impression video of the characters from Tim Burton films which was beautiful… Basically when I’m on my period I get highly emotional and anything can make me cry.

Anyway, Anyhow… Here is a list of the books I have read this summer!

The face on the milk carton by Caroline b. Cooney

This has been one of the most annoying series I have read.  Let me explain…

So the first book I thought was brilliant, the second was okay but started to get boring as nothing was really happening so as nothing was happening I thought that they would be an amazing plot twist at the end. Guess what…There was non…But the ending just forces you to read the next book so much so your in a vicious circle until you’ve read all the 4 books and you just get very disappointed at the end of the series. The only thing that got me going was that it was very easy to read and of course the suspense. I give this book a 3/5

Everyone needs to read this book at least once in their lives especially if you like fantasy/ gothic books ( actually gothic in only some parts).

I give this book a 4/5.

The night itself by Zoe Marriott.

I read this book because I wanted to read something different so why not try a book about a Japanese samurai girl living in England. I loved this book! It was easy to read. There was loads of film and book references which I loved even though I didn’t see the matrix. There were some Japanese spirits which I discovered. I learnt that Sonic the hedgehog’s friend is a spirit! ( the brown one) I don’t blame you if you don’t remember that cartoon.  Plus all the characters in the book are so loveable!  I give this book a  4.5/5

We were liars by E.Lockhart. 

I mean this book is completely beautiful! READ IT NOW!

I give this book a 5/5.

Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman.

Oh my god this book I’m reading at the moment is incredible it’s about segregation which is the first book I have read on this topic. Please give it a read!

I give this book a 5/5 so far.

 

That’s it! Have you read some of these books?  Which was your favourite book you read this summer? Has anyone read J.K Rowling’s new book? Have a great day and remember to read loads!

Bye!

 

Celebrities recommend books

Hello to all the bookworms out there! I’ve had this Idea of doing this post when Zoella posted a video on her book club picks (I’ll include two of her recommendations in this post) I found it very interesting so I thought that maybe other people would find interesting seeing celebrities favourite books. I think that this post shows a side that of famous people that we don’t tend to see and it’s nice to know that they are more like us than we think they are.

The opposite of loneliness by Marina Keegan, recommended by Emma Watson basically the Queen of acting. After reading this book she started chatting with other people who had read this book on twitter. An affecting and hope-filled posthumous collection of essays and stories from the talented young Yale graduate whose title essay captured the world’s attention in 2012 and turned her into an icon for her generation.

The invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, recommended by James Patterson.  “It’s a combination of reading a great book and watching a great silent movie.” Honestly I think we should totally trust him , he’s not a writer for nothing after all. The novel revolves round 12-year-old orphan, Hugo Cabret, who lives in an old apartment above a train station in Paris, where he tends to the 27 clocks in the building each day.

Station eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, recommended by Emma Roberts. She posted a photo of it on Instagram, I think the cover makes the book look so exciting!The novel takes place in the Great Lakes region after a fictional swine flu pandemic, known as the “Georgia Flu,” has devastated the world, killing most of the population.

Gravity and Grace by Simone Weil, recommended by Madonna. Yep… I know she has time to read.

The last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper, recommended by Steven Spielberg. I mean Spielberg is the king of directing great movies, trust me he can sense good stories.

The Power of Positive thinking by Norman Vicent Peale, recommended by Donald Trump. I was quite surprise about this,because of all the things he says.. I’m quite interested in this book and I would love to see how Donald Trump thinks.

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon, recommended by Zoella. This book just looks very intriguing to me. “My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.”

The potion diaries by Amy Alward, recommended by Zoella.” It’s so cool”. So I personally really want to read this book because I absolutely love fairy tales and fantasy. “When the Princess of Nova accidentally poisons herself with a love potion meant for her crush, she falls crown-over-heels in love with her own reflection. Oops. ”

I might do another one of these I enjoyed making it. I think the book which I most want to read are the potion diaries and station eleven. Which book are you reading at the moment? Any recommendations?

Thank you for letting me take a minute of your time. Bye!
