Happy Tuesday, everyone!
So who else is excited not to go back to school this year? Me. 😂 I haven’t been so thrilled to see September arrive. I truly haven’t. But you have my sympathies if you do. Copious amounts of reading may help. Or an upcoming graduation may be better.
This week’s topic dor Top Ten Tuesday, we get to discuss school-themed books. I’ll stick with books that take place at school, savvy? Good.
The Hate U Give
Have you ever wanted to pick up a book, but you hesitated every time you looked at it on a store shelf? Well, The Hate U Give is that kind of book to me. It’s a revolutionary read. And I need to read it. But I need to be in the right frame of mind.
One of Us Is Lying
I’ve been contemplating reading this book. But it sounds so damn good though. Murder, mystery, and a killer on the lose. What else do you look for in a book?
Look at the cover. I think I’m in love. 😍 I’ve heard a lot about Rainbow but haven’t read any of her books. But I’d love to get to this one before the sequel comes out. And frankly, I can’t call myself a “Supernatural” fan if I don’t read this book with the show’s theme song in the name.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
How can I make this list without putting a Harry Potter book on here?! That’d be insane. One reason why I love Order of the Pheonix is the beginning of Dumbledore’s Army. I loved it. And I enjoyed how the students banded together.
Ugh, this book bloody killed me. I know this choice may be controversial since the book revolves around a school shooting. However, it’s one of the few YA stories that address the consequences of such a horrible event. And I love how Kelley brings a new perspective to it.
The Black Witch
I followed HarperCollin’s latest Frenzy Presents on Twitter. Laurie attended the event, which I wish I could have gone to. Unfortunately, life got in the way. I’m hoping to delve deep into this book. Embracing a destiny, learning magic, and an evil looming are all that I’m looking forward to.
Thirteen Reasons Why
I wonder if I’ll ever read Thirteen Reasons Why. When it came on Netflix, I was so thrilled to pick it up. Like Aftermath, it discusses difficult situations students face: rape, suicide, bullying. When the controversy hit about the author, I questioned my decision. A part of me wants to read it. But I’m still on the fence.
