Hello Everyone! 😛
Reading has always been something I’ve been very passionate about and as a child, still to this very day you’ll always find me with my nose in a book whether it be in the middle of the night or in the car.
I have been reading ridiculously this month and I’ve gathered an amazing collection of books but I’ve narrowed it down to my top 3 picks for this month. There will be a mix of different genres and authors and a brief description for each book so there’s guaranteed to be something for everybody. I promise no spoilers! XD
The Memory Book – Lara Avery: Samantha is diagnosed with a rare disease and before she knows it her whole world crumbles to her feet, slowly all her memories are slipping away and her future which she has planned so perfectly comes to an end before it has even begun. Realizing her life is slipping away Samantha starts a diary where she records each day in detail, disobeying rules, going to parties and falling in love. This book made me learn to embrace life and live it to the fullest. Once you’ve read this you’ll have a completely different outlook on life.
The Walled City -Ryan Graudin: When I first picked this book up I never thought I’d like it as much as I did. Ryan Gradin described the Walled City in such grave detail and to believe that this place actually used to exist in Hong Kong is unbelievable! There are three rules of survival in the Walled City. Run Fast. Trust no one. Always carry a knife.
Dai: Traffics drugs for the most ruthless man in the Walled city. To seek his freedom he needs help from someone who can be invisible.
Jin: Hides under the radar, evading the street gangs. Jin disguises as a boy in order for her only chance to search for her lost sister.
Mei Yee: Is trapped in a brothel, dreaming of escape but the girls who try and fail die until one day she sees a unexpected face at her window.
Damaged and betrayed these three come together to beat the clock and to find freedom from the city walls.
The Manifesto on how to be Interesting – Holly Bourne: Holly Bourne captures the struggles of many teenage girls in this very relatable book. If I didn’t include this book in this month’s favourites this review would have been incomplete. This book taught me everything and truly made me love myself for who I am.
Bree is by no means popular. Most of the time, she hates her life, her school and her parents who are never home. So she writes. Bree has always aspired to be a writer but when she’s told she need to stop shutting the world out and start living a life worth writing about, The manifesto on how to be Interesting is born. A manifesto that puts her friends, family and life at steak but just how far will Bree go before she realises her own mistakes?
So this concludes my January favourites book review, hopefully one of these books has captured your attention. If you read any of these please let me know what are your opinions and also if you have any suggestions or are interested to know some of the books I’ve be reading throughout this year just let me know! 😉 ❤
See you soon,
