During my trip to the library last month, I picked up four books. It was a great way to get back into the swing of reading regularly. The books on my shelf just haven’t been interesting to me lately. Here’s what I thought about my library books. Click the titles for full reviews.
Ghost by Jason Reynolds
I enjoyed Ghost a ton. I feel like it was a great story, super well written. It’s moving and even though I didn’t always agree with Castle, I understood his actions. I understood his motivations.
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
I liked this one a whole lot too. I feel like it’s one a lot of people can relate too. Great representation of the coming out experience.
Tyler Johnson Was Here by Jay Coles
I was not a fan of this one by far. I posted a mini rant about it earlier this week, so be sure to check that out if you want the full details. Overall, this book just felt super unrealistic and it was a hot mess.
Ten Things I Hate About Me by Randa Abdel-Fattah
I feel like this was a book my middle school self would have loved. It falls in that category of contemporaries I was obsessed with when I was twelve. My current self just isn’t into that kind of writing anymore.
