Five Books You Should Read This Month
October is National Book Month
“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
So, I heard this month, October is National book month and I thought why not do a top five books you must read post, they are books I have read and I think you should too.
Number one on the list (in no particular order) is Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten.
When Sasha’s best friend, Xavier gets back to his cheating ex, Ivy, Sasha knows she needs to protect him. So she poses as a guy online to lure Ivy away. But, Sasha’s plan goes sullenly wrong. And she soon learns to be careful of who you pretend to be or you might be surprised by who you become.
This book, is told in multiple points of view.
Now, that you have read the synopsis, cancel out whatever your mind is telling you, this book has some serious plot twist. You’d be glad you read it.
Number Two is Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
I don’t think I need to say too much on this book because I did an extensive post on it already. Read it here.
This book brings culture to life in such a beautiful way, you will definitely be touched.
“All the stories are true”
-Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments.
This quote brings me to my Number Three on the list, Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
This book is the second in a trilogy called The Dark Artifices, and it’s also from the Shadowhunter books written by Cassandra Clare. You are probably watching the TV show but, I can assure you the books are better. So if you are a lover of fantasy, a world within a world kind of books, then you should try reading Shadow hunter series. You can start with The Mortal Instruments Series. Thank me later.
Number four is Born a crime by Trevor Noah
Well, Trevor Noah needs no introduction and his book is about his childhood, growing up as a mixed race child in apartheid South Africa, well technically speaking, apartheid died few years after he was born but, it didn’t really take all the diseases it left behind.
This book has just the right amount of humor, and it talked majorly about racism, Trevor’s childhood and sexism among other things.
It’s definitely one book you must read.
And finally on this list is Miss Peregrine’s Home For Gifted Children by Ransom Riggs
This book is what I am currently reading, so I am still kind of deciding my feelings about the book but, I added it to this list because it’s sort of has a flow that I like. From this list you can definitely tell that I have a thing for fantasy. I’ll probably do a full on this particular book after I’m done. But you can read it and decide for yourself.
Thank you for reading. Please you can drop a list books you think I should read in the comment section. Have a wonderful day.
