A collection: Books

March 13, 2013

Yay, today is the day that I start my collection series! I thought that I would start off with something easy and then move into a nail polish collection later on once i've gotten into the swing of things. Pretty much all of these books are super popular so you have most likely heard of them but I hope you enjoy anyways, and if you haven't read them yet I will be doing a little mini review (not a summary) of what I thought about the books. Also, some of the books I have yet to read because I am currently reading Lovely Bones right now for my English class, and also I read 2 books in about 2 weeks and I thought I should probably slow it down and space out my reading.

'hunger games, catching fire, and mocking jay' by suzanne collins
Alright let's start off with the hunger games... I went to see the movie about this time last year and I really enjoyed it, and I was one of those people that doesn't read the book and only watches the movie. I am trying to change that though, so for Easter my mom got me the first hunger games book and I read through it so quickly. They did make the book so similar to the movie that when I was reading it I got kind of annoyed that I already knew what was going to happen, but I guess that's my fault. Later on I got the second and first book, I really liked the second book and I hate to say it but I still haven't finished the third book. It just got really boring, but maybe if they make a third movie in like 3 years or whatever I will finish it but I highly doubt that.

'the perks of being a wallflower' by stephen chbosky
So if you haven't heard of this book or the movie, I don't even know what to say to you because this has been raved about everywhere. I honestly think this is a good book, and if you want to be one of those people that hates it just because its popular you can go right ahead. The reason I did read it was because the movie was coming out and I wanted to see what all of the fuss was about. It defiantly meets up to its high standards, and the movie captured the book perfectly. Go read the book if you haven't yet because it is one of those "must reads".

'its kind of a funny story' by ned vizzini
Ah yes, this book. It is one of those books that you can't go about your day without thinking about it at least once. The reason why it stuck in my mind is because during the time I was reading it, I was going through a really tough time and I think this book helped me through it. It has a really good plot to it so I suggest you google this book because I won't be able to explain it well enough. I started to watch the movie on Netflix and stopped about 20 minutes in and I still haven't finished it, maybe I should do that...

'the fault in our stars' by john green
See I told you, many very popular books. This is the first book I have read by John Green (don't hurt me), BUT I have bought a couple more which you will see soon! I finished this book in about 4 days because I couldn't bring myself to put it down. It is such a cute book and so moving, but I am sad to say that it didn't make me cry. I don't really cry because of books, or movies even so that would explain why... No wait, Marley and Me & The notebook made me cry but that is it! Anyways, if you want a really sad book that you can curl up on a rainy day with a cup of tea this is the book for you.

'thirteen reasons why' by jay asher
OH MY GOODNESS THIS BOOK! I love this book so freaking much, it is also one that I couldn't put down. It isn't as popular as the other one's but i'm pretty sure there is a hefty amount of people out there that have read it which probably explains why it is a nationwide bestseller. The cool thing about this book is you can go on youtube and hear the tapes that the girl has made, which would probably make more sense if you looked it up right now... Okay go ahead i'll wait for you............... Yeah it sounds pretty awesome right? That's why you need to go out right now and get it, i'm just saying.

'14,000 things to be happy about.' by barbara ann kipfer
 I'm not sure that I would call this a book, mostly because it's not the type of book you plan your whole day around to read. It is exactly what the title says, just a bunch of things the author wrote down that makes her and other people happy. I am only 30 pages into the book because I read through it whenever I am feeling a little low or need a bit of inspiration. I usually keep a highlighter attached to the book to highlight anything that stands out to me, if you get this book I suggest that you do the same! :)

'paper towns & looking for alaska' by john green
Ignore the fact that this picture includes a book that I have already mentioned. :) Okay so these are the two books that I have still not read because of the book that I am reading for school.  I heard that Looking for Alaska was really good and I thought I would buy another John Green book while I was at it so thats when Paper Towns comes in. Once I finish these books, I am hoping to by Will Grayson Will Grayson and An Abundance of Katherines because based on what they're about they sound pretty good.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you liked it and I hope you come back for more of my collection series :)

    The first Hunger Games book was definitely the best. I call myself a Hunger Games fan, but I am sorry to say it all went downhill from there.
