Library Book Haul (#10)

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I blogged. I recently went to the library and decided to do another Library Book Haul. It’s the 10th one! You guys have really been enjoying these book hauls 😀 This book haul consists of three YA books and three YT (Young Teen) books. Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven would’ve been part of this haul but I started and almost finished it. A review will hopefully be coming your way soon!

*All Covers Are Linked To Goodreads*

1. If I Ever Get Out Of Here By Eric Gansworth (YA)

If I Ever Get Out of Here

Lewis “Shoe” Blake is used to the joys and difficulties of life on the Tuscarora Indian reservation in 1975: the joking, the Fireball games, the snow blowing through his roof. What he’s not used to is white people being nice to him — people like George Haddonfield, whose family recently moved to town with the Air Force. As the boys connect through their mutual passion for music, especially the Beatles, Lewis has to lie more and more to hide the reality of his family’s poverty from George. He also has to deal with the vicious Evan Reininger, who makes Lewis the special target of his wrath. But when everyone else is on Evan’s side, how can he be defeated? And if George finds out the truth about Lewis’s home — will he still be his friend?


2. None Of The Above By I.W. Gregorio (YA)

None of the Above

A groundbreaking story about a teenage girl who discovers she was born intersex… and what happens when her secret is revealed to the entire school. Incredibly compelling and sensitively told, None of the Above is a thought-provoking novel that explores what it means to be a boy, a girl, or something in between.

What if everything you knew about yourself changed in an instant?

When Kristin Lattimer is voted homecoming queen, it seems like another piece of her ideal life has fallen into place. She’s a champion hurdler with a full scholarship to college and she’s madly in love with her boyfriend. In fact, she’s decided that she’s ready to take things to the next level with him.

But Kristin’s first time isn’t the perfect moment she’s planned—something is very wrong. A visit to the doctor reveals the truth: Kristin is intersex, which means that though she outwardly looks like a girl, she has male chromosomes, not to mention boy “parts.”

Dealing with her body is difficult enough, but when her diagnosis is leaked to the whole school, Kristin’s entire identity is thrown into question. As her world unravels, can she come to terms with her new self?


3. The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) By Maggie Stiefvater (YA)The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)

(I recently read the first book and fell in love. The review will be up ASAP)

Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself.

One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams.

And sometimes he’s not the only one who wants those things.

Ronan is one of the raven boys – a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan’s secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface – changing everything in its wake.


4. It Ain’t So Awful Falafel By Firoozeh Dumas (YT)

It Ain't So Awful, Falafel

Zomorod (Cindy) Yousefzadeh is the new kid on the block . . . for the fourth time. California’s Newport Beach is her family’s latest perch, and she’s determined to shuck her brainy loner persona and start afresh with a new Brady Bunch name—Cindy. It’s the late 1970s, and fitting in becomes more difficult as Iran makes U.S. headlines with protests, revolution, and finally the taking of American hostages. Even mood rings and puka shell necklaces can’t distract Cindy from the anti-Iran sentiments that creep way too close to home. A poignant yet lighthearted middle grade debut from the author of the best-selling Funny in Farsi. 


5. Nothing But Trouble By Jacqueline Davies (YT)

Nothing but Trouble

Odawahaka has always been too small for Maggie’s big scientific ideas. Between her stuck-in-a-rut mom, her grumpy grandpop, and the lifetime supply of sludgy soda in the fridge, it’s hard for Maggie to imagine a change.

But when Lena moves in with her creative spirit and outrageous perspective, middle school takes off with a bang. Someone starts pulling the kind of pranks that send their rule-loving new principal into an uproar—complete with purple puffs of smoke, parachuting mice, and a scavenger hunt that leads to secret passageways. Suddenly the same-old football games, election for class president, and embarrassing stories feel almost exciting. And for the first time in her life, Maggie begins to wonder if there might be more to Odawahaka than she ever saw coming!


6. Every Single Second By Tricia Springstubb (YT)

Every Single Second

A single second. That’s all it takes to turn a world upside down.

Twelve-year-old Nella Sabatini’s life is changing too soon, too fast. Her best friend, Clem, doesn’t seem concerned; she’s busy figuring out the best way to spend the “leap second”—an extra second about to be added to the world’s official clock. The only person who might understand how Nella feels is Angela, but the two of them have gone from being “secret sisters” to not talking at all.

Then Angela’s idolized big brother makes a terrible, fatal mistake, one that tears apart their tight-knit community and plunges his family into a whirlwind of harsh publicity and judgment. In the midst of this controversy, Nella is faced with a series of startling revelations about her parents, friends, and neighborhood. As Angela’s situation becomes dangerous, Nella must choose whether to stand by or stand up. Her heart tries to tell her what to do, but can you always trust your heart? The clock ticks down, and in that extra second, past and present merge—the future will be up to her.

Tricia Springstubb’s extraordinary novel is about the shifting bonds of friendship and the unconditional love of family, the impact of class and racial divides on a neighborhood and a city, and a girl awakening to awareness of a world bigger and more complex than she’d ever imagined.

But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.

There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker, Reid. He’s a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.

But now, the future he’s been imagining for himself has gone far off course.

To make things worse, the only person who truly understands his heartache is Jackson. But no matter how much they open up to each other, Griffin’s downward spiral continues.

Except . . .

There’s Hannah, the gorgeous girl from the neighboring school, who attracts him and distracts him. There’s his mother, whose quiet unhappiness Ben is noticing for the first time. School is harder, the pressure higher, the scholarship almost slipping away. And there’s Rafe, funny, kind, dating someone else . . . and maybe the real normal that Ben needs

But when the truck transporting Li Ping shows up, its precious cargo has vanished into thin air. The FBI steps in to investigate, and Teddy is happy to leave the job in their (supposedly) capable hands. After all, FunJungle has never encountered a crime this serious. But when someone threatens to blackmail Teddy’s girlfriend, Summer, if he doesn’t solve the crime, his involvement in this mystery is no longer black and white.

fullsizerender-6


*All These Book Covers Are Linked To Goodreads*

Anne of Windy Poplars (Anne of Green Gables, #4)

This was another great book in the Anne of Green Gables series. It was intriguing and pulled me in from the beginning.

This is a great story! There is lots of obstacles, success and worry for the characters to deal with. It’s set in the 1930s so it’s definitely different. I love it so far!

Book Review|The Porcupine of Truth

Hey everyone! Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a great week so far. Now you can hopefully relax! Today I am going to be doing a book review. As you can tell by the title, I am going to be reviewing The Porcupine of Truth by Bill Konigsberg. This is the second book by the author. You can find the first book’s review here. Without further ado, here we go!


Title: The Porcupine of Truth

Author: Bill Konigsberg

# of pages: 336
Genre: LGBTQ, Adventure
My Rating: 4.5/5 stars
Goodreads Rating: 4/5 stars
Amazon Rating: 4.7/5 stars

Amazon Summary:

Carson Smith is resigned to spending his summer in Billings, Montana, helping his mom take care of his father, a dying alcoholic he doesn’t really know. Then he meets Aisha Stinson, a beautiful girl who has run away from her difficult family, and Pastor John Logan, who’s long held a secret regarding Carson’s grandfather, who disappeared without warning or explanation thirty years before. Together, Carson and Aisha embark on an epic road trip to find the answers that might save Carson’s dad, restore his fragmented family, and discover the “Porcupine of Truth” in all of their lives.”


Critic Reviews (Credit Given):

* “A friendship between a straight boy and a lesbian is relatively rare in YA fiction and is, accordingly, exceedingly welcome. And that’s the truth.” — Booklist, starred review


* “Konigsberg weaves together a masterful tale of uncovering the past, finding wisdom, and accepting others as well as oneself.” — School Library Journal, starred review


“Bill Konigsberg’s The Porcupine of Truth is at once heartwarming and heartbreaking, a funny and thought-provoking road trip with remarkable friends Carson and Aisha, who share tough lessons about mending fractures, forging bonds, and discovering grace. Undeniably human and unforgettably wise, this book is a gift for us all.” — Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle and Winger


My Thoughts:

This was an amazing book! It’s the first time I’ve seen a straight boy and a lesbian be friends anywhere. This book is about Carson finding out about his grandpa’s past. At the beginning of the story, Carson meets Aisha. He falls in love with her at first but then learns that she’s a lesbian. Carson and Aisha become extremely close. His dad is an extreme alcoholic who is dying. Carson decides that he needs to find his grandfather and reunite him with his dad before he dies. Aisha and Carson travel across the country to find his grandfather following clues from people they don’t even know. To find out if they find his grandfather and more, read the book 🙂 I rated this 4.5/5 stars because there is some breaking and entering. I don’t think it was the best choice that could’ve been made. I hope more authors can put  diverse friendships like this in YA.


That’s a wrap! This is a great book. I definitely recommend it. Do you want to read this book after this review? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book reviews!

Top Ten Tuesday: Why I Love…

Hey everyone! I apologize for not being active during this last week or so. I had finals and lots of studying to do. It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday! This meme is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and the Bookish. You definitely need to check them out if you haven’t already. This week’s topic is:

Ten Reasons I Love Xcould be a certain book, character, author, your indie bookstore, a fandom, a tv show, reading, a hobby, a genre. Honestly anything you want to gush about..

This topic has endless possibilities. I have decided to do Ten Reasons I Love J.K. Rowling.


Ten Reasons I Love J.K. Rowling:

  1. She’s an amazing author!

What’s not to love about an author who knows how to write? The way she makes the words flow across the page blows my mind. I still wonder how the idea of Harry Potter came to her.

t

2. She created the Harry Potter characters.

Without her there would be no Harry, Hermione, Ron, Ginny, Mr. Weasley, Mrs. Weasley, Hedwig and all the others. Without her, the world wouldn’t be the same.

3. She donates to charity!

J.K. Rowling gives the majority of her money to charities. She’s donated at least 160 million dollars to seven or more charities. She’s donated so much that it knocked her off the Forbes billionaire list.

4. She named a HP character after a fan who died from cancer!

Natalie McDonald was the a nine year old girl from Canada who died from cancer. She wrote to Rowling about how much she loved the books. Rowling wrote back but Natalie had already passed away. Natalie McDonald in the book was a Gryffindor. You can find her in The Goblet of Fire.

5. She interacts with her fans on Twitter.

Unlike some celebrities, J.K. Rowling interacts with her fans. She’ll even get into arguments if she doesn’t agree with something someone said.

6. In 2010, Rowling created a clinic in honor of her mother Anne who died of MS.

This is the sweetest thing ever! She turned 45 in 2010 which was the age her mom was when she passed away.

7. The “K” in her name is a tribute to her grandmother!

Her grandmother’s name was Kathleen!

8. Her battle with clinical depression led to the creation of the Dementors.

I put this on here because she used her real life struggles to get ideas for her book. That shows that she isn’t afraid to embrace her past and look to the future.

9. She started writing at age 6.

This has really turned into a J.K. Rowling fun facts post XD I love her for this because she started writing at such a young age. It was about a rabbit who had the measles.

10. Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling share the same birthday!

That’s just amazing. I love that she had Harry have the same birthday as her.


That’s a wrap! Do you know any other facts/amazing things about J.K. Rowling? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday: Beach Reads!

Hey everyone! I didn’t do last week’s TTT topic because I had absolutely no ideas. Once again, I don’t have many ideas. I didn’t want to skip another week though so here I am! Top Ten Tuesday is an awesome meme hosted by the wonderful people at The Broke and the Bookish! You definitely should check them out. This week’s topic is:

Beach Reads Week — top ten great beach reads, ten books I plan to read on the beach, ten beach reads for those who don’t like typical ~beach reads~, ten authors who are my go-to for beach reads, etc.

The problem with this week’s topic is that I don’t read at the beach. I will just do books that I think would be good beach reads. It might end up being a flop. We will just have to see!


Ten Beach Reads:

  1. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon.

I have not stopped raving about this book! It’s a lovely contemporary that kept me smiling. Olly and Madeline are so darn adorable. This would be a great beach read because it would keep you reading and smiling  no matter how hot you are.

2. Simon and the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I have raved a ton about this book too! It’s another contemporary but this time it’s LGBTQ. Simon and Blue’s relationship was so adorable! This would be a great beach read because you could be reading their sweet emails while relaxing near the ocean.

3. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.

This is a children’s book but it’s also a classic. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a book about a boy who gets an exclusive tour of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. This would be a great beach read because it’s an easy read and you could enjoy all the delicious sweets while lounging in the sand.

4. The BFG by Roald Dahl

This isn’t much of a classic but is still a funny and easy read. This book is about a friendly giant who goes on an adventure with a little girl named Sophie. The movie adaption is also going to be in theater this summer! This would be a good beach read because it’s quick and has lots of silly moments that would keep you giggling.

 

 

5. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

This is yet another overly raved about book. It’s about a girl who writes fan fiction and a boy who works at Starbucks and their adorable romance. This would be a great beach read because you could enjoy the developing fan fiction and imagine sitting in Starbucks with a nice cold Frappuccino.

6. Divergent by Veronica Roth

This is quite the dystopian book! It’s about factions who are against each other. It centers around a girl named Tris, her family, friends and faction. This would be a great beach read because you could lessen the intense moments and suspense by being by the ocean.

7) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

This is quite an intense three book series! It centers around Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark,Gale Hawthorn and so many more. This would be a great beach read because you could be glued to Katniss battle to the death in the Hunger Games while kites soar through the air.

8) The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I’ve definitely raved about this book countless times. It’s a book about two cancer patients who fall in love. This would be a good beach read because you could follow Hazel and Gus on their romantic adventures while sitting in the warm sand.

9) Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

This is another beautiful contemporary book. It’s a classic teen romance with an insecure red head and a half Asian who loves comic books. This would be a great beach read because you could remember those tough teen relationships while relaxing on the beach.

10) Paper Towns by John Green

This is list is filled with books I’ve raved about countless times. This is about the crazy friendship/crushing of Quentin and Margo. This would be a great beach read because you could travel across the country while sitting under the beating rays of the sun.


That’s a wrap! This week’s list is filled with a mix of popular YA books and some children’s books. What do you think about these books? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Top Ten Tuesdays!

Top Ten Tuesdays: Historic Settings

Hey everyone! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesdays! This weekly meme was created by the amazing people at The Broke and The Bookish. This weeks theme is:

Top Ten Historical Settings You Love/ Ten Historical Settings You’d Love To See or Top Futuristic Books You Love/Ten Futuristic Societies I’d Love To Read in Books — basically this week is all about the past or the future….spin it however you choose!

I have chosen to do Ten Historic Settings I’d Love To See.

Ten Historic Settings:

  1. Verona, Italy where Romeo and Juliet is set

It would be so interesting to see the place where Romeo and Juliet was set.

2) North Carolina where the Wright Brothers started to experiment with flying.

It would be so cool to see where the Wright Brothers started to fly.

3) New York City where 9/11 took place

This is a picture of the Statue of Liberty with the World Trade Center burning in the background. I want to see the memorial for all of those lives lost on 9/11.

4) Pearl Harbor where the attack happened.

 

 

It would be interesting to see where the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and if there’s any wreckage still there.

5) The White House

Many historical things have happened at the White House.

6) The Titanic

 

It would be so cool to see where the Titanic movie was filmed and where it was recreated/built.

7)The Iconic MLK March

 

It would be amazing to see where Martin Luther King Jr. lead his march.

8) Where JFK is buried and assassinated.

It would be interesting to see where JFK was assassinated and where he is buried now.

9) North and South Korea border

So much has happened here.

10)The Lincoln Memorial

This would be amazing to see!

 


That’s a wrap!!

Where do you want to visit? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Top Ten Tuesday!
