So, we just finished our midterm examination for our Major subject, and I think the best way to let the stress out of my system is reading these books. It’s not that many since I think I’m gonna be busy this month, but who knows, maybe a miracle will happen.
Here they are:
I bought this book in the middle of February from a preloved bookstore. It was in a good condition and very cheap, so why not? Also, I’m trying to read books that don’t fall in the YA category. I’m on page 75 right now and everything is doing good so far.
A generation has passed since The Change that rendered technology inoperable around the world, and western Oregon has finally achieved a degree of peace. But a new threat has risen in Paradise Valley, Wyoming. A man known as The Prophet presides over the Church Universal and Triumphant, teaching his followers to continue God’s work by destroying the remnants of technological civilization they encounter-and those who dare use them.
Rudi Mackenzie, son and heir of the mystic Juniper, must journey with seven friends across a continent in chaos to the Sunrise Lands to solve the riddle of what destroyed a civilization. And as the friends journey farther into the interior, enemies may be within their own band as well as outside it…
I’ve been wanting to read this one since 2016. Also, there is a movie adaptation coming up so I’m really really excited. So far, I’m on chapter five and everything is doing absolutely good. This is fast-paced so I think I’m going to finish this before The Sunrise Lands.
Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.
With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.
A movie adaptation is also coming based on this bundle of beauty (I mean, look at that cover). I haven’t started this yet, but I’m really pumped to!
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
So, those are the books in my TBR this month. If you have something you want to say, like, which book should I finish reading first, please comment.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, EVERYONE!!!
