Rounding out the year with some awesome books!
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
Still, there are times I am bewildered by each mile I have traveled, each meal I have eaten, each person I have known, each room in which I have slept.
My general thoughts: I read the stories for class. That being said, I wouldn’t mind reading them for fun. What’s more, the endings are realistic. If you aren’t a fan of happy and unrealistic endings, you’re in luck.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
If you must fail…fail spectacularly!
My general thoughts: I love the photographs, I love the story, I love the characters, I love everything about this book. Especially how the pages feel under my fingertips.
Modern and Normal by Karen Solie
…you’re wondering how you hoped/to find peace in a place that doesn’t want you.
My general thoughts: I wish I was a better poet so I could appreciate these poems more. This happened to be the shortest book I read all year, which explains why I finished it within a few days.
The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey
We’re here, and then we’re gone, and it’s not about the time we’re here, but what we do with the time.
My general thoughts: It’s a fun, fast read. Well, it would have been fast if I didn’t have school and exams to worry about.
Now onto what I hope to read next month…
A Night Divided by Jennifer A. Nielsen
Why: Because these “Books of the Month” posts keep me accountable. And I’m deliberately deciding what to read next so I don’t have to decide once I finish the book I am currently reading (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl). I plan on finishing that book before this year finishes, but since I need to publish this today, I’ll include Me and Earl and the Dying Girl in next month’s post.
I hope you had a fantastic reading year. And if not, you can always make next year amazing.
