Hello! I got a bunch of Chapters gift cards over Christmas, which means that It’s time for me to replenish my stock of reading material. Today I’ll share three books that I’m either currently reading or want to read in February. I’m trying to branch out my book selections a little bit- I’ve been reading a lot of fantasy, which I love, but I feel like I need something different. This list isn’t numbered because I want to read these books in no particular order. I hope that this post gives you some good book ideas!
They Both Die At The End
I’m currently reading this book and I have to say that it’s pretty good so far. It’s about two teenage boys that get a call saying they’re going to die by the end of the day. They don’t know when or how its going to happen, only that it will. Through an app they meet up with each other and basically go out to make the most of their “End Day”. The story is well written and jumps between different perspectives, which makes it more interesting, and is also a bit emotional because these boys have to say their last goodbyes. But above all, I love it because of it’s message- live everyday like it’s your last.
On The Come Up
This is Angie Thomas’s second novel. Her first, The Hate U Give, was a great read and I suggest that you check it out if you haven’t already. Anyways, On The Come Up is about a girl whose father was an amazing rapper, and she wants to become just like him. However, her family is going through some tough times, and now she needs to make it big in order to help them out. I’d like to read this book because I loved The Hate U Give, and it sounds like an inspiring story. Plus, it’s not fantasy!
Two Can Keep A Secret
This is another book from an author whose first book I’ve read. One Of Us Is Lying is a mystery from Karen M. McManus. Two Can Keep A Secret is about a girl named Ellery who goes to live with her grandmother in Echo Ridge, and a boy named Malcolm whose brother was the prime suspect in a murder in Echo Ridge. Then new threats come up, a girl disappears, and the two teens have to find out what happened. I’ve been sucked into the world of mystery novels after reading One Of Us Is Lying and Paper Towns, so I’m excited to read this!
So yeah! That’s what I’ll be reading this month;) If I get through those and start another book, I’ll let you guys know what that book is. Happy Reading!
Yours Truly, MyDayIsBooked;)))))
