I love to read and I try to finish a book at least every two months. In the past year I have read many good books but these three stood out. I hope you will read them if you get the chance!
The Great Gatsby:
The Great Gatsby was written by F. Scott Fitzgerald and was published on April 10th 1925. This is my third favourite book. I really enjoyed reading this book. Here is the summary,
After his war service, Jay Gatsby accumulates a fortune from organized crime and invents a new persona for himself. He buys a luxury property on Long Island, across the water from the mansion where Daisy now lives with her new husband. He throws extravagant parties to attract her but but her arrival only signals the unraveling of Gatsby’s cherished dream. This book is really good I recommend reading it if you have the time!
Snow Like Ashes:
Snow Like Ashes was written by Sara Raasch and was publish October 14, 2014. It is my second favourite book. Here is the summary,
Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and it’s citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now the people of Winter’s only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been searching for a chance to steal back Winters magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.
Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee. Training to be a warrior she would do anything to help Winter rise to power again. So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore their magic, Meira decides to go after it, only to find herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics- and to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.
Cinder is the first book in The Lunar Chronicles which was written by Marissa Meyer. These books are my favourite series! Here is the summary,
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless Lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . .
Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future
This series is really good, I recommend reading it if you have the time!
