JANUARY TO FEBRUARY BOOK WRAP UP
The past two months have been really fruitful for me and I read a lot more books than I have read in my entire life. It’s really great that I am finally doing bookstagramming and get to meet other fellow book lovers and readers. They help me in finding the books that I may be curious to read about. It really inspires me and my love for books grows stronger. So here is the Wrap-Up for the past two months.
1. Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic.
So far this is the first inspirational book that I have read. It illustrates how God helped Nick get through his struggles, pain, depression and suicidal attempts that he encountered during his life. It shows Nick’s victory, how he inspires other people and how other people inspire him. This would be a great read for those individuals who need some push with their struggles in life, and will definitely help them feel blessed and thankful.
2. Bird Box by Josh Mallerman.
The trailer of the movie Bird Box is everywhere on social media but I can say (since I’ve read the book before watching the movie) that I like the book more. It feels very dark, engaging and thrilling. Getting to read the perspective of the characters, how they feel, their worries and fears make it more exciting and I just love it. I love how the author writes it, which I find very catchy.
So, I decided to get some poetry mixed in my reads. I love how Lang Leav writes her poetry with delicacy and simplicity. Every poem is engaging and I was able to relate to them. It’s easy to understand. This has more poems than prose on it, and I like how the rhyme goes.
The Lullabies is Leav’s second book and she has more prose than poems. I love this one more than her previous book. The prose are simple but their meanings are deep. I like how she delivers each poem and brings out emotions since its based around heartbreak and pain.
5. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (TATBILB) by Jenny Han.
Letters, Letters, Letters, it all started with her letters. I love how this book is like a contemporary love story of teenagers. It’s a cute story and I like the twist of Lara Jean’s letters. The pretended couples become real depicting their struggles, confusions and feelings. This is a trilogy book so if you don’t plan to be disappointed with the ending (spoiler: it’s a cliffhanger) it’s better to get all books.
6. P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han.
This is the sequel of the TATBILB. It enumerates more of their struggles, especially of Lara Jean’s. It shows jealousy, heartbreak, pain, and confusion, like a typical love story these days. However, it doesn’t fail to illustrate how great love is, that love will always protect one another and how they will always be for each other no matter circumstances one faces.
7. Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han.
This is the final book. It explains the struggle of both Lara Jean and Peter during their term at college. Also, they try to grapple on how they can be together after despite having issues and characters that try to break them apart. It also states the love story of their father which I find really intriguing and exciting. This trilogy is a really good read, it’s very engaging and exciting.
It’s the first detective read for me. It is stimulating, and the twist in the story makes the reader totally immerse in the book. It’s a unique story which involves students and how the incident mess up their lives. I am amused that almost everyone is involved in finding the real killer. It also has a sidelined and minimal love story which adds to the charm of the overall story.
Another book from the same author as above but not a sequel. I REALLY REALLY LOVE THIS BOOK! It encompasses a whole town (I think it’s a town) which is really interesting for me since it involves a very large setting! I also love that the main character is a girl (spoiler)(there’s a boy also) and admire her passion for mystery and thriller. I like how the story covers past, present which makes it more challenging to find the killer! It is one of the must reads.
10. Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott.
This book involves a lot of scientific jargon’s, hospitals, diseases and love. It shows how love can overpower anything even a deadly disease! Also, it draws sad emotions out of the reader in a setting where you can’t even touch the one you love. It just hurts reading this book, however the book illustrates that love really has no limits, and that it can go beyond which makes this book really beautiful. This is also going to be a movie adaptation that will be released sometime this year itself.
