Hi everyone! I am an aspiring author slash college student who loves to read which is probably obvious, and I love to share what I read with people, again, obvious. I think everyone has a book out there for them, its a matter of looking hard enough to find it and having a positive attitude about reading it. Anyways I hope you all find this blog helpful. Please feel free to comment and ask questions, that's why I do this!
So this is a page where I will post some of my favorite books along with their pictures. Its different from the home page because these are some of my personal favorites that I can read over and over again and they never get old. The home page is suggestions that everyone might like. If your taste in books is similar to mine, you might find this page helpful. :)
These go in no particular order because I think picking a favorite book or author is like picking a favorite child. You just don't do it.
1. Graceling-Kristen Cashore
I have read this book multiple times and I learn something new everytime. I love the setting (somewhere in the times of kings and courts and knights) and I love her well developed plot and hilarious characters. I was never bored. Ms. Cashore is a brilliant author and I love her other novel that she published after Graceling called Fire.
The Hunger Games
2. The Hunger Games Series- Suzanne Collins
I have few words to describe the originality of this series. It an incredible story of life, love, politics, and survival. The future of America is called Panem. The once great nation has dwindled to 12 small sections called Districts. The main character is brave, smart, and funny. She is relatable and understandable. Its an amazing story and it amazes me every time I read it.
3. The Host- Stephanie Meyer
This is a Sci-Fi book. I'm usually not a Sci-Fi person because I think they are just to out there and hard to understand. I will admit that the Host took a while for me to catch on to. It was around chapter seven that I began to say 'oh ok'. Some advice for those of you planning to read the Host: WHATEVER YOU DO, READ THE PROLOGUE. ITS IMPORTANT. THE ENTIRE BEGINNING OF THE STORY, (LIKE I SAID 7 CHAPTERS) SETS UP THE REST OF THE BOOK. YOU WILL NOT UNDERSTAND IT OTHERWISE. AND LAST, ITS OK IF YOU DON'T GET IT. IT THE KIND OF BOOK THAT YOU HAVE TO READ TWICE TO FULLY UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING. I didn't figure any of that out until I almost gave up on it completely. I'm really glad I didn't. This story of an alien invasion of the present day is well written and the characters are great. They all have strong wills and personalities.
