So today’s challenge seems pretty easy. You just pick three books that you that read this year as recommendations for the rest of the year. However, it is not that simple. I went from a list of ten books to a list of five, in which I decided which three books I would choose. I hope I am not cheating since two of these books are part of a series. I have also linked the original reviews with each book. If you want to see the reviews, just click on the book titles. Let’s begin.
- The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann – I have recently finished reading the book a few weeks ago. I fell in love with the book and I am now trying to finish the series. The book can be described as combining Harry Potter with The Giver. You have a bunch of kids who are deemed unworthy in their world to be sent to be killed but got rescued and are being taught magic. I enjoyed everything about this book, especially the magic system, in which I believe that you will love too.
- Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi – Again, I will admit that this is another series. I will admit that my review for the first book is not that high. I felt that the story was a bit flat. However, I am not recommending the book for the sole purpose of the story but for the artwork. The artwork is beautiful, stunning, and breathtaking. It is something that everyone has to see. I will let you know, that the series does improve with each book.
- I Killed the Mockingbird by Paul Acampora – I will admit that I am a fan of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, and I do believe that part of my love for this book is because I love Harper Lee’s book. It is just a fun, short, quick read, and I feel it would be great to read it at the beginning of fall. However, I have discovered that if you truly love To Kill a Mockingbird, you would love the premise and storyline of this book. It is a really good coming of age story.
So those are my book recommendations. Enjoy your weekend.
