So today I’m doing a list of some of my favourite books… Obviously I couldn’t show all of them because I love way to many, way to much!
“Desptite the tumor-shrinking medicine that had bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten”
Middle School My Brother is a Big Fat Liar by James Patterson and Lisa Papademetriou (279 pages):
“Being Rafe Khatchadorian’s little sister isn’t easy… Rafe broke school rules for fun. Rafe’s report card never saw an A. Rafe made a million enemies in school. And now everyone thinks I’m just like him! So I’m going to prove them wrong. It’s time for some serious payback.”
Alice-Miranda in Japan by Jacqueline Harvey (332 pages):
“When Alice-Miranda, Millie and Jacinta travel to Japan during the school holidays, they are in for a fascinating trip. Dolly Oliver, the family cook, has been invited to speak at a conference in Tokyo on her Just Add Water food creation- but she is even more interested in her newest invention, and vows to try it out while overseas. Alice-Miranda becomes embroiled in an elaborate missing persons hunt when a gift from her father confuses the authorities. Things come to a head when Alice-Miranda and her friends are invited to dinner at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, and the plans of a jealous sister begin to unravel, with startling consequences.
Anne Frank the Diary of a Young Girl, with an introduction by Eleanor Roosevelt (268 pages):
“Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank’s remarkable diary has since become a world classic- a powerful reminder to the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit. In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, they and another lived cloistered in the ‘Secret Annexe’ of an old office building. Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever present threat of discovery and death. In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and amusing, her accounts offer a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was cut tragically short”
Anne Frank’s Tales From the Secret Annexe (203 pages):
“You’ve known for a long time that my greatest wish is to be a journalist, and later on a famous writer. We’ll have to wait and see if these grand illusions (or delusions!) will ever come true, but till now I’ve had no lack of topics. In any case, after the war I’d like to publish a book called The Secret Annexe”
Wonder by R.J Palacio (310 pages):
Girl Online by Zoë Sugg (444 pages)
“Penny has a secret. Under the alias Girl Online, Penny blogs her hidden feelings about friendship, boys, her crazy family and the panic attacks that have begun to take over her life. When things go from bad to worse, her family whisks her away to New York, where she meets Noah: a gorgeous, guitar-strumming American. Suddenly Penny is falling in love- and capturing every moment of it on her blog. But Noah has a secret too. One that threatens to ruin Penny’s cover- and her closest friendship- forever.”
Girl Online: On Tour by Zoë Sugg (338 pages)
“I lean into his chest and feel his heart beating; I can’t help but think this is way better than Skype. I stare up at his chisesled jaw, messy dark hair, and deep brown eyes. How did I get so lucky? I’m normally the unlucky girl who’s always caught in the rain without an umbrella, who never has her number drawn in the school raffle, and who always loses at Monopoly. Maybe life has been storing up all my wins just for this: so I can be with Noah.”
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K Rowling (332 pages)
“Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter ‘H’. Harry Potter has never heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry’s eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizadry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!”
