Hi,everyone! One of my main new years resolutions is to start reading books again so I’ve joined up to Goodreads and I’ve found some books which I want to read this year. I thought you guys would like to see the books which I like the look of and you might even like the look of them too 🙂
- Undone by Cat Clarke.
Jem Halliday is in love with her gay best friend. Not exactly ideal, but she’s learning to live with it.
Then the unspeakable happens. Kai is outed online … and he kills himself.
Jem knows nothing she can say or do will bring him back. But she wants to know who was responsible. And she wants to take them down.
I haven’t really read books with someone loving their gay best friend so I thought this could be amusing! Also, I want to read a book about loss and how people carry on with life afterwards. This seems like a packed book with alot of drama in it so hopefully, I will be able to get hold of this book somewhere 🙂
2. Cruel Summer by James Dawson
A year after Janey’s suicide, her friends reunite at a remote Spanish villa, desperate to put the past behind them. However, an unwelcome guest arrives claiming to have evidence that Janey was murdered. When she is found floating in the pool, it becomes clear one of them is a killer. Only one thing is for certain, surviving this holiday is going to be murder…
I’ve been recommended to murder mysteries books so I thought this would be a good book to get started to before I move on to Sherlock Holmes 😉
3. And we stay by Jenny Hubbard
Senior Paul Wagoner walks into his school with a stolen gun, he threatens his girlfriend, Emily Beam, and then takes his own life. Soon after, angry and guilt-ridden Emily is sent to a boarding school in Amherst, Massachusetts, where two quirky fellow students and the spirit of Emily Dickinson offer helping hands. But it is up to Emily Beam to heal her own damaged self, to find the good behind the bad, hope inside the despair, and springtime under the snow.
Okay as you see I’m abit morbid but I think this would be quite a good book and I haven’t read a book where someone tries to kill the character (okay, that’s a lie) but I really want to read it.
4. Trouble by Non Pratt
In this dazzling debut novel, a pregnant teen learns the meaning of friendship—from the boy who pretends to be her baby’s father.
When the entire high school finds out that Hannah Shepard is pregnant via her ex-best friend, she has a full-on meltdown in her backyard. The one witness (besides the rest of the world): Aaron Tyler, a transfer student and the only boy who doesn’t seem to want to get into Hannah’s pants. Confused and scared, Hannah needs someone to be on her side. Wishing to make up for his own past mistakes, Aaron does the unthinkable and offers to pretend to be the father of Hannah’s unborn baby. Even more unbelievable, Hannah hears herself saying “yes.”
It seems like quite a funny book to read. I don’t know how it will be but it just seems that it will be. It has very good ratings so why not read it? The only thing I’m scared about doing is buying it in the shop. haha.
5. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother–or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
I wanted to read this book for a while now after finding out Nick Robinson is going to be starring in The 5th Wave film so I thought why not read the book before the film 🙂 It seems like it’s going to be abit like the Hunger Game/Maze Runner/Divergent mixture so I think it’s going to be perfect for me.
6. Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
Madeline Whittier is allergic to the outside world. So allergic, in fact, that she has never left the house in all of her seventeen years. But when Olly moves in next door, and wants to talk to Maddie, tiny holes start to appear in the protective bubble her mother has built around her. Olly writes his IM address on a piece of paper, shows it at her window, and suddenly, a door opens. But does Maddie dare to step outside her comfort zone?
I think this sounds like a really fascinating book and I think I’m going to fall in love with Olly. I think this would be a good book for some of you guys as well who are going through anxiety at the moment.
7. The Manifesto on How to Be Interesting by Holly Bourne
Bree is a loser, a wannabe author who hides behind words. But when she’s told she needs to start living a life worth writing about, The Manifesto on How to Be Interesting is born. Six steps on how to be interesting. Six steps that will see her infiltrate the popular set, fall in love with someone forbidden and make the biggest mistake of her life.
This seems like an very interesting book (get it, hahah).
8. The Last Summer of Us by Maggie Harcourt
Limpet, Steffan and Jared. Three best friends crammed into a clapped-out rust bucket of a car on a whirlwind road trip to forget their troubles and see out the end of the summer. But no matter how far they drive, they can’t escape the hidden secrets and slow-burning romance that could upset the balance of their friendship – perhaps forever.
I think this would be a great summer read, I’m so looking forward to summer 🙂
9. Don’t Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski
We weren’t always like this. We used to be average New York City high school sophomores. Until our homeroom went for flu shots. We were prepared for some side effects. Maybe a headache. Maybe a sore arm. We definitely didn’t expect to get telepathic powers. But suddenly we could hear what everyone was thinking. Our friends. Our parents. Our crushes. Now we all know that Tess is in love with her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That, um, Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper.
Since we’ve kept our freakish skill a secret, we can sit next to the class brainiac and ace our tests. We can dump our boyfriends right before they dump us. We know what our friends reallythink of our jeans, our breath, our new bangs. We always know what’s coming.
Some of us will thrive. Some of us will crack. None of us will ever be the same. So stop obsessing about your ex. We’re always listening.
I sometimes like a cheesy teen flick so why not this?!
10. Maze Runner Series!
As you may know I love the film Maze Runner and Sorch Trails but I haven’t read any of their books so one of my blogs this year is to read, all of them!
