Hello everyone, and happy Monday! 😊 How was your week/weekend?
Today, I’m here with a fun idea I snatched from a post of Isabelle’s (read hers here), in which I will spell my name using book titles! Thank you, Isabelle, for giving me the idea and letting me use it!
In this post, I will find a book starting with the same letter as one of the letters in my name. If the title of a book begins with something like “the” or “a”, I won’t count that. Let’s get right into it!
R – Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. From what I remember, this book was very interesting. It is the only book I’ve read that features time travel, and it contains lots of mystery and adventure. I read this book a couple of years ago, so I don’t quite remember everything about it. I do remember that the time-traveling aspect got a bit complicated and complex to understand in the later books, but it was still pretty good.
E – Echo by Pam Muñoz Ryan. This book follows one harmonica, and the stories of three children, who come to have the harmonica. It was written for middle-grade audiences, though I enjoyed it thoroughly. It was a very imaginative and well-crafted story.
B – Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys. Ruta Sepetys is an amazing historical fiction author, and I’ve read four of her books, this one being the first. This book got me interested in historical fiction novels, so it is special for me. This book taught me about the work camps in Siberia, something I had little knowledge of before. Ruta Sepetys really brings history to life in this book, following a fifteen-year-old Lithuanian girl, Lina. It was a bit brutal and heartbreaking, but also a very hopeful story.
E – Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. This isn’t my favorite book, but I needed another book for E. It follows Maddie who has a sickness that prevents her from interacting with the outside world (basically allergic to the world, as the Goodreads synopsis puts it.) I think it was sorta cute, but just not my favorite overall.
K – The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson. This was such a crazy read, but I loved it. It is now one of my favorite fantasy series. I enjoyed the mystery elements of it, and all of the characters were very well done. It follows Lia, a princess who flees from her kingdom on the day of her wedding, to a small village. Two strangers then arrive, one the prince she was to marry, and the other an assassin sent to kill her. It was so nerve-wracking not knowing who was who, but it was a very fun read.
A – All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I read this book a while ago, so I don’t quite remember everything about it, but from what I remember, it was very good. It’s a historical fiction novel set during WWII and is narrated by two characters, Marie-Laure and Werner. I sort of want to reread it soon, because I can’t remember much of the plot. 😄
H – The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. This is one of my favorite series and one of the books that got me into reading as a hobby. If you’ve never heard of this series…where have you been? It follows Katniss, a teenager living in a future North America, renamed Panem. Every year, twenty-four children are chosen to fight to the death, and when her sister is chosen, Katniss volunteers, taking her sister’s place. I don’t have much else to say about this book/series, except that team Peeta is the only right opinion. Lol, just kidding. (Am I, though? 😆)
This was so much fun! 😃 I hope you enjoyed reading it! Have you heard of any of these books? What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
Thank you for reading! I will be back next week with a new post. Bye for now!
