Spring Recommendations!

Apparently spring is right around the corner for us so I decided to get you guys excited with some spring recommendations. These books are books that will make you feel pumped and ready for the sunshine!

kissingfrogs-framedKissing Frogs by Alisha Sevigny – Kissing Frogs is about a popular girl named Jessica who’s only chance at saving her less then excellent biology grade is to go on a trip to Panama to save the gold frog. This book is loosely based on the Frog Prince and is filled with new experiences, romance and lots of sun! I really enjoyed this quick read and it will definitely put you in the mood for some sun.

isla-and-the-happily-ever-after-stephanie-perkinsIsla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins – Isla is the third main protagonist we have in the Anna and the French Kiss/Lola and the Boy Next Door kind of trilogy thing. While this is my least favourite of the three, it definitely makes me feel in the spring/summery mood! In Isla and the Happily Every After, we follow Isla, a shy girl who has had a crush on an artist named Josh since the first day of high school and after an odd encounter with him in Manhattan, their relationship begins to blossom once school starts back up. This is a very fun, adventurous and light hearted book that you will zip through.

hidden-2boracle-2bfinal-2bcover-2b-1The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan – I don’t know why but this book gives me spring vibes allll over. Maybe because it follows our main character, Apollo who in Greek Mythology is the sun god. Yeah that is probably it. Anyways, in this book Apollo is turned into a mortal and finds himself completing a series of tasks to regain his immortality. As Rick Riordan’s books always are, it was a humorous journey and as always I really enjoyed it!

selection-cvrThe Selection by Kiera Cass – The romance in this book really, really reminds me of spring for some odd reason, but honestly, all contemporaries seem to fit into the spring/summer category…well except for a few. In The Selection, our main character is America Singer who enters a competition at the castle, trying to win over Prince Maxon’s heart. Things are complicated though when she has feelings for somebody else other than the prince though. This book is a rollercoaster of emotions but leaves a smile on your face by the end.

Those are a few spring recommendations for you and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Beginner’s Guide to: Readathons.

Not-So-Popular Book Recommendations

I was thinking of a blog post to do and I realized I had a few books on my shelf that were great but not very many people read so I decided to post a Not-So-Popular Book Recommendations post!

Kissing Frogs by Alisha Sevigny is a cute, finding yourself contemporary that is based on the fairy tale, the Frog Prince. It is about this girl named Jess who to be able to pass biology has to be sent to Panama along with some of her other classmates to help save the Golden Frog. When she looses her ring at the bottom of a pool, Travis (someone who she had a history with) retrieves it and as a reward wants 3 dates from Jess. The plot may sound a bit cheesy but the book is great and a really fun and easy read!

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman is a historical fiction book with a hint of fantasy and some Greek mythology in it too! It follows 5 different people, Alexander who is the heir of Macedonia, Katerina who’s mission is to kill the Queen, Jacob who will fight whomever and whatever to win Katerina, Haphaestion who also wants to win Katerina and is a murderer who is hidden by the prince, and Zofia who is a Persian princess that is set to marry Alexander. I thought this book was amazing and I loved following all these different characters because they were all so complex and interesting. I really recommend this book!

The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan is an urban fantasy trilogy set around Egyptian mythology. I know that Rick Riordan is well known but I barley ever see this trilogy shown or talked about and it needs to be because its a great, educational trilogy! It follows Sadie and Carter as they unravel their past that seems to intertwine with the Egyptian gods after their father is taken by the evil god, Seth. Their are 3 books in this series: The Red Pyramid, The Throne of Fire and The Serpent’s Shadow. Please read them!!!
