Fun Reading

Hi everyone! I thought that I would use this page to recommend books that I have read and really enjoyed.  I will try to write a little summary of each one so that you can decide if it sounds interesting enough to read.  I am also allowing comments on this page so that you can either give feedback when you're done reading, or recommend something that you feel is worthwhile.  Enjoy!

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.  ~Dr. Seuss

The Martian 

by Andy Weir 

 

This novel chronicles the adventures of astronaut Mark Watney while stranded on Mars. He is forced to put his skills as a botanist and mechanical engineer to the test while attempting to survive on a planet nearly 140 million miles away from Earth. His journey is no small feat and this book makes for a suspenseful read.  I enjoyed this novel very much and would recommend this to anyone who enjoys space and math. This novel also has a film adaptation that will be released in October 2015 starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Very strange book. This book is about a teenage girl who spends her summers on an island with her family every single summer.  Something happens to her and the reader has to follow along as she tries to remember what it is.  I think it is an okay book...definitely not a bad read, although I thought that some of the dialogue didn't sound like it would come from a teenager.  But I promise that if you read this book, you won't be disappointed plot wise.  

Looking for Alaska by John Green

So I will start by saying that I never read John Green's most popular book, The Fault in Our Stars, so I didn't know what to expect when I read this book.  I won't spoil anything for anyone, but I will say that this book took me by surprise.  It's a book about teenagers who go away to high school, and in my opinion, the characters were pretty well developed.  It kept me interested and I think many of you would find it to be a quick read.    

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

If you like historical fiction, you will enjoy this book set during World War II.  It follows two sisters who live through the Nazi invasion of France.  It's a quick read and one that I personally enjoyed very much.
