January Book Review-Book Week Day 2

Tuesday, August 4, 2020

It's day 2 of book week!!
Hey y'all, happy Tuesday!! Today is day 2 of book week!! 

If you missed my July book review yesterday, then you definitely need to check that out!! 

So your probably wondering why I'm doing a January book review when it's August, and I briefly explained it yesterday, but allow me to explain more...I didn't have my blog back in January, and I really wanted to have a full year worth of book reviews. So that's why!!

Also-It's Midnight Sun day!! Ahhh!! I cannot wait to get my hands on this book!! 

Ok without any further introduction, lets just get into it!!

1. Just Mercy (Adapted For Young Adults) by Bryan Stevenson

This book.

This book is so good, but also terrible at the exact same time.

This book tells the story of Walter Mcmillian, who was very, VERY, wrongly accused of murder. It tells the story of Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, and his journey helping Walter, and founding the EJI. 

This book is the most saddest book I have ever read, and its all true.

Based of a true story.

That is not okay. At all.  

This is a book everyone needs to read. And if you are looking for books to educate yourself, I recommend this one 100%. Bryan Stevenson is an amazing author, and an amazing person, and you will just find yourself sobbing at these true stories. Stories of brutality. Stories of injustice. It shouldn't be that way, and it just breaks my heart into a million pieces that it is. 

Read this book. Educate yourself. 

2. To All The Boys I've Loved Before
3. P.S. I Still Love You
4. Always and Forever, Lara Jean
by Jenny Han
I'm sure y'all have seen/heard about this movie, but did you know that there is a book series too?! And it is even better than the movie!! 

This book/series is about this 16 year old girl named Lara Jean, who whenever she has a crush on someone writes them a love note...kind weird, but makes for a good book!! 😂 Anyways, she never actually sends them out to the recipients...she just keeps them in her closet to look back on. The letters end up being sent out anyway, and she basically ends up getting in a "fake relationship." So yeah. This is definitely not a realistic book, but that doesn't make it any less of a great book!! 

This is such a sweet book series that focuses a lot on relationships, and family. Lara Jean is such a great character and I really enjoyed her throughout the series. Even though the letters weren't that realistic, she was a very relatable character, and I really enjoyed that. Overall, Jenny Han did a great job on this, and I enjoyed it so much!! 5 stars from me!!

5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Ahh!! The Hunger Games!!

I love this book. 

If you don't know what this book is then you are seriously missing out, because it is one of the best books ever!! 

The Hunger Games is about this dystopian society, that has a competition every year. This competition is called The Hunger Games, and it is where 24 people (12 girls, 12 boys) go into this arena and basically kill each other. Only one person survives and that person is the winner of the competition. 

This book is intense, and terrible, but it is so, so good!! 

The main character of this book name is Katniss Everdeen, and she is one of my favorite characters out of all the books I've ever read!! She is so driven, and independent, and I just love it!! This book is written so well, and it has such a powerful message behind it. 

1000/10. 5 stars. 100% love this book!!

Well that is my January book review!! Thank you so much for reading, and I will see you back here tomorrow for my February/March book review!!

  1. Love the Hunger Games and I thought Laura Jean was so endearingly sweet. I was so excited when Netflix began making them into movies.
