I believe in love at first sight. I mean, fictional characters count right?
This post is just something fun that allows me to share some books I'd like to pass on to my future child/ children.
1. The Hunger Games
Purely so they realize just how damn lucky they are. Also so I can share my love for Peeta, Finnick, Katniss and Annie.
2. Harry Potter
Harry Potter is one of the world's most treasured books so of course I'm sharing the magic with any future off spring I may have.
3. Winnie the Pooh
This one is self explanatory. Every child should experience at least a bit of the Winnie action.
4. Goodnight Mister Tom
This book, I read in primary school and did a lot of work on. I thought it was an amazing book for my age at the time (about 10/11)
5. A series of unfortunate events
All 13 of them are wonderful and are in fact the books that made me want to read more. (Klaus may have won me over with his love for books)
I couldn't find all of the hardbacks so I had to use the paperback picture
Those are the top 5 books I want my children to read, I'd love to know yours :)
So I understand I've been away for a very long time however I have my reasons, they are as follows:
-I'm in a reading slump
- A lot of changes are going on and it's hard for me to deal with them
- I was recently diagnosed with depression
- I've had a tough time with self-harm
Bad things aside I'm okay and dealing with the reading slump I'm in is part of recovery.
So, in order to hopefully blast through some books I'm making a reading challenge for myself. As I'm moving i can't start my challenge until next month, however, it would be a good time to start.
I'm planning to finish a series, start several series's and power through some of those pesky stand alone's.
My summer holidays also start in a few weeks so i'll have plenty of time.
So join me if you wish on a full month of reading commencing on the 1st of August (Woah it's August soon?)
I'll be posting weekly updates ^.^
I know that this review is of the third in the series but Jesse is just amazing so I picked his review ^.^
I really want to read this series as I have only heard fantastic things about it! Fingers crossed I can get my hands on them soon c:
Recently I have been trying to stray away from the typical, chick-lit or dystopian novels. These genres have been my "comfort zone" lately. I've been reading them because I know I will enjoy them and will read them quickly. So, I've been thinking, It's time to escape the clutch of this "zone" or "rut" I've been trapped in for far too long.
I had just bought a new book that seemed slightly different to what I have been reading although sounded similar to a book I have read when I previously strayed away from the usual when my English teacher walks up to me and hands me a book, tells me I will enjoy it then continues on to explain how it is similar to the piece of writing I had done. Guess what. It was a dystopian. This was like the ultimate temptation so I had to postpone my adventure into the unknown to read it. I'm glad I did but now it's time to change it up.
I'm currently on book two of a five part series called "the power of five" written by Antony Horowitz and I'm really enjoying it. I admit, It's nothing hugely different to my normal, typical reading but it's still different. I think I will post an overall opinion once I've read all five books.
Later, I do plan to read more classics as it has been a genre I've been avoiding for a long time. I think I will start with the great Gatsby considering I am going to see the film soon. (have you seen Leonardo DiCaprio? yum) I also want to read Pride and Prejudist, or and Jane Austen to be honest.
Wish me luck on my expedition
Made this quickly in PicMonkey. Book shleves picture is not mine. I just added the text :)
