Today is WORLD BOOK DAY so here are some books that I am looking forward to reading this year, Over the year this list will more than likely get longer so here is just the beginning, maybe you might get new read inspiration.
1 – Me Before you, By: Jojo Moyes.
Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.
What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.
What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.
2- Room, by: Emma Donoghue.
To five-year-old-Jack, Room is the world. . . . It’s where he was born, it’s where he and his Ma eat and sleep and play and learn. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits.
Room is home to Jack, but to Ma it’s the prison where she has been held for seven years. Through her fierce love for her son, she has created a life for him in this eleven-by-eleven-foot space. But with Jack’s curiosity building alongside her own desperation, she knows that Room cannot contain either much longer.
Room is a tale at once shocking, riveting, exhilarating–a story of unconquerable love in harrowing circumstances, and of the diamond-hard bond between a mother and her child.
3 – All the Game of Thrones Books, By: George RR Martin
You know whats it’s about GOT fans!!
4 – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by: Jane Austen
So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you’d actually want to read.
5- Before, By: Anna Todd
Fan Fiction based in Harry Styles?? Eh yes please!
BEFORE Hardin met Tessa he was a raging storm. DURING those first moments they met, he realized he needed to keep her for himself—his life depended on it. AFTER they got together, the world would never be the same.
Hardin and Tessa’s dramatic love affair became a vortex pulling in everyone around them. For the first time these others are given voice as they appear before, during, and after the events in original After novels. Alongside them, Hardin’s account of his first encounters with Tessa—which will change what you thought you knew about the brooding boy and the angel who loved him.
6- The Girl on the Train, By: Paula Hawkins
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins was a smash hit when it was published in 2015 by Penguin books.
A narrator describes a burial site. By the train tracks, marked with only a tiny pile of stones. The narrator states there isn’t much to mark the grave but they didn’t want to leave it without remembrance.
Again an unnamed narrator. They are losing consciousness, confused. The reader assumes they are dying.
7 – Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, By: Newt Scamander/J.K Rowling
One of Harry Potter’s featured textbooks at Hogwarts, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is about the magical creatures in the Wizarding World. The movie, which is written by J.K. Rowling, is about the adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards 70 years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.
Lots of Love,
