Now that it is summer I have free time to read as much as possible before I have to start school reading again. The other week I purchased the books I was going to read off of a really great second hand website called World of Books where I bought five books to start my summer off with.
The books that I bought are:
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
My friend recommended this to me and being the friend that I am I have chosen to read it first out of the five. In fact, I have already started it and I think it amazing. It is written from the point of view of Enzo, a family dog and he recalls events of his life and his family whilst also explaining his love of car racing. It has been a day since I received the package and I am already half way through because the writing is addictive and every chapter leaves me wanting to know more about Enzo and his life.
Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
I have never read a Giovanna Fletcher book before which I find unbelievable, this was a recommendation in a YouTube video that I watched and it was explained to be a romance book but with twists and turns and I cannot wait to read this after The Art of Racing in the Rain because I think I need something to cheer me up afterwards.
How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran
This book caught my eye on the website because it sounded like a really relateable YA novel about a girl who wants to reinvent herself. I feel as though I am currently in the middle of some kind of identity crisis myself so this book will be perfect to read and hopefully give me some ideas.
We Were Liars by Emily Lockhart
I am interested to read this book because I have heard that there is a twist in it, as well as this it looks like a good size for me to just finish in one sitting if I’m feeling like I just want to have a good session of just reading one day.
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
I also saw this book in a recommendation video and the summary reminds me of 1984 by George Orwell. This book is set in the future and I always feel intrigued by dystopian universes and metaphors for government control.
My Goodreads account is here in case you are interested in keeping up with this reading journey.
