This past weekend I got snowed in and I was super bored so I used my boredom to create a new blog post, so here are a few books that I like to read when I am bored. They captivate you and make you never want to put them down!
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell – I talk about this book a lot but I can never stop reading this book when I pick it up. I am engrossed into the story every single time I read Eleanor and Park, and somehow I never seem to get bored of it. Eleanor and Park is about two very different people named Eleanor and Park and about their relationship that starts off shaky but blossoms into some more. I love, love this book and everyone needs to read it!
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier – This is a book on time traveling and I absolutely love it. It follows our main character Gwen who comes from a family of time travellers but it is believed that the gene has skipped her, that is until she finds herself hundreds of years in the past. Now with her new abilities, she is thrust into the hectic world of time traveling totally unprepared. This book has it all! Romance, time travel, humor and overall is a fantastic read that you will not want to put down.
Divergent by Veronica Roth – Divergent has such a unique concept and the writing just flows so nicely that you are whisked away into this world without even realizing it. In Divergent, we follow Tris Prior who after taking an aptitude test that determines where she belongs in her society, finds herself having to hide who she truly is. While in my opinion the last two books in this dystopian trilogy are not as good, the first one is definitely worth the read!
The Summer I Turned I Pretty by Jenny Han – This is summer contemporary book that is such a fun and easy going read. You are easily locked into this summery beach scene and overall it is just a fun time. The Summer I Turned Pretty is about our main character named Belly who is returning to the beach house she has spent her summers at since she was little. There she reunites with old family friends Conrad and Jeremiah and together they have a summer filled with romance, drama and fun.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan – In this book, we follow Percy Jackson a sarcastic and snarky character who after finding out his father is a Greek God, is thrust into a crazy world of monsters and demigods while also being blamed for stealing Zeus’s lightning bolt. Determined to prove he is not the thief, he goes on a journey to find it along with two friends before the summer solstice. This book is filled with awesome adventure and hilarious moments so I really recommend you pick it up if you haven’t. You won’t regret it!
Those are some books to read if you are bored and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading/Writing Update!
