Books I have recently borrowed from my local libraries

I usually try to not to borrow books from multiple libraries at the same time, but it happened, so now I want to show you what those books are that I took out.

I started reading ‘scythe’ by Neal Shusterman last night. There isn’t much to say as I’m only around twenty pages in, but so far its going good. The book is set in a perfect world where everyone is immortal, however, there is the one and only way to die. To die, you have to be professionally gleaned by a scythe. Citra and Rowen has been selected to be apprentice scythes, so they have no option but begin training. They need to stick together, but then they are told that one of them will have to glean the other.

I’ve been thinking about reading this book for a while, and i’ve seen quite a few pictures of it on bookstagram so I’m assuming that a lot of people enjoyed it. I also got the sequel, ‘thunderhead’.

Another I got is ‘the catastrophic history of you and me’ by Jess Rothenberg. This is about sixteen-year-old Brie who gets her heart broken by her boyfriend telling her that he doesn’t love her, but she is about to discover how complicated love really is. Her family begins to unravel, her best friend is keeping secrets about her boyfriend’s betrayal, and then there is Patrick. With his help, she is getting through her grief, she just hopes they can have a future together.

This seems interesting so I’m excited to get around to reading it 😀

I’ve seen ‘collide’ by Emery Lord a few times in my library, I’m pretty sure I picked it up at one point but for some reason I’ve never taken it out. This book comes with two different perspectives, Jonah and Vivi. Jonah has lived in Verona Cover, California, his whole life. When his father dies he is caught in misery but he must take care of his family. Vivi, the new girl in town, is in love with life. She is gorgeous and bright. She transforms Jonah and his family, changing their lives. However, there are consequences of their collision.

I like the cover of this book, the idea of the splattered paint. This sounds intriguing and I reckon it’ll be easy to get into, so I’m looking forward to starting it.

Those are all of the books I have recently borrowed from my local libraries! Im really excited to continue reading ‘scythe’ and start the other books.

I thought I’d let you know that I finished ‘everyday’, and I ended up liking it a lot more than I was in the beginning. Towards the end I thought it was a lot more realistic and more enjoyable to read, and the message that you should always love the inside of someone more was really clear throughout the story. I’m happy I read this book 🙂

I’m halfway through ‘fantastic beasts’ and as I said in my last post it’s really fun and exciting to read. All of the creatures are so interesting to read about and I think all of their aspects are really cool! I’m planning on finishing it in the next couple of days ♡

Welcome to my blog!

Hello! I’m a teenager from England who loves to read, so much that I decided to create a blog all about my reading. This gives me more of an opportunity to share my thoughts and ideas about books so I’m very excited to begin! However, for this first post, I’m going to be doing more of an introduction of myself and my reading ( my type of books, my other hobbies, how often I read, etc).

I do also like to write but apart from reading and writing, I really like to listen to music, knit, and draw. I haven’t been knitting for long but I’ve been really enjoying it. At the moment I’m knitting a scarf which is inspired by The Night Court from the ‘ A court of thorns and roses’ series by Sarah J Maas (I’ll probably do a post in the future surrounding that series). I’m really liking it so far. It is black and dark blue wool with some distinct gold in it so immediately I recognised it as The Night Court.

I mostly read young adult romance, contemporary, and fantasy. I started reading a lot more around half way through year eight. I found the ‘Slated’ trilogy by Terri Terry in my school library and I finished the first book really quickly. I remember feeling mesmerized and excited about the atmosphere, I didn’t want it to end. I had to wait for the other two books as they weren’t yet in the library, but when the librarian got them she told me immediately when she saw me next. I read the other two books just as quick. Soon after, I finished the Twilight series that I borrowed from a near library. I’m team Edward aha!

I more or less read every day. I’d say I’m a fast reader. However, I read around fifty to sixty pages in one sitting. I don’t think that’s bad at all, but recently I’ve been trying to read more in one go and it’s going good so far. At the moment I’m reading ‘Every day’ by David Levithan and ‘Fantastic Beasts and where to find them’ by J.K. Rowling.

The first book is about a sixteen-year-old who wakes up in a different body every day. This person isn’t a permanent gender but gave themselves the name, A. There is never any warning of who it will be and where, but when A wakes up as Justin he assumes he’ll just try to get through the day like he always does, but A really begins to fall for Justin’s girlfriend. I’m liking this book, especially how the variety of people throughout the book was described. But for me, it came across that the build-up to the relationship was really rushed and unrealistic. If it was more developed I probably would like the book more as a whole. Also if there was something else added that was gripping, maybe more of an insight of the people that A is for a day. Not just their lives and who they are as a person but more that can link back to the main character. For example, if A was a permanent person, would he want any aspects of Justin?

I’m really enjoying Fantastic Beasts! This book goes through all of the incredible animals in the wizarding world from A to Z. At the start in the introduction, Newt Scamander also talks about the history of the beings and beasts, who decided what category they go in, etc. I’m finding this really interesting and cool so I’m excited to continue reading!

Thank you for giving my first post a chance! It’s been fun typing this, and I hope you enjoyed reading it ♡
