What to do in Summer? Read the days away!

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR BOOKS! PROCEED WITH CAUTION!

 

Summer is a great time to catch up on some reading. For a few posts in this series I will be doing book reviews, and maybe book lists. Some of you may not enjoy reading, that is okay. But whether you do or don’t, reading is a good thing to do. Maybe if you don’t like to read, it’s not so much that you don’t like the actual reading, it’s that you don’t like the type of books you read. Believe me, there is all sorts of books out there!

Today I will do a couple of short reviews, on various books. Tell me if you would like to see more reviews, also, tell me if you would like a book list.

Anyways, on with the post!

Because of the Rabbit by Cynthia Lord

Title: Because of the Rabbit

Author: Cynthia Lord

Year Published: 2019

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Pages: 183

Age: 9+

Sexual content: None

Swearing/cussing: None

Other: There is a boy who has some behavioral disabilities and other kids talk behind his back at one point.

My Thoughts

I love this book. Hands down love it. Actually, I love all the books I’ve read by Cynthia Lord. I found the book very interesting, and really enjoyed reading about Emma. The book is told from Emma’s POV (Point of view), so you get to see what she thinks like. The book transported me into a 5th grader starting school for the first time (she was homeschooled). Overall I really liked this book.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

 

A Good Kind of Trouble

Title: A Good Kind of Trouble

Author: Lisa Moore Ramée

Year Published: 2019

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Pages: 358

Age: 12+

Sexual content: None that I know of

Swearing/cussing: Minimal

Other: There is a lot of racism in it, that is what the book is about. The entire book is based on race, but not in a bad way necessarily. Also, Shayla, the main character, wants boys to like her, and she likes a boy.

My Thoughts

I like it. This book is a page turner as well as an eye opener. It gives you a different perspective on race. I would definitely recommend this book.

I give A Good Kind of Trouble 4 out of 5 stars because some of the content might not be suitable for less mature people.

 

The Night Diary

Title: The Night Diary

Author: Veera Hiranandani

Year Published: 2018

Genre: Historical fiction

Pages: 258

Age: 13+

Sexual content: none that I know of

Swearing/cussing: Minimal

Other: There is some violence, although it is described by a twelve year old girl writing letters to her deceased mother, so it is not to graphic.

My Thoughts

I liked The Night Diary for several reasons. One of the reasons is because it is historical fiction, and I love historical fiction. Another reason is because it was about an event I had never hear about. Lastly, because of the format it is written in. The girl is writing letters to her deceased mother in her diary, and I love formats like that. I found this book very interesting, although I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone. Overall I really liked this book.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars because the format does not suit everyone, and at times (for certain people) it can be harder to read.

 


 

Well, that is all for now. Again, tell me what you think!

TTFN (do you know where that is from?)

  1. Ohh, books! Reading is one of my favorite things to do. I plan on doing quite a bit of reading over the summer, since I’ll have more time. I hope to complete reading 20 books! It’s my some-what little goal. 😄 I’m excited to see if I accomplish this goal!

    1. Yeah, summer is a great time to read. 20 books is a good goal! I’m afraid I don’t have a certain goal, I just have a list of books I want to read (it is over 20, I believe). What type of books do you like to read? I like a lot of types, but I mostly read Historical Fiction, girl-detective mysteries, and realistic fiction.
