Villains Trilogy by Serena Valentino

fullsizerender7

I would rate this series ★★★★★

I am a huge Disney fan so when I found out about these books I had to read them immediately. I devoured them pretty quickly. It is Serena Valentino’s take on the villains from the Disney stories we all know and love. It shows a different side to them so that you can understand why they turned out the way they did. I really enjoyed this series and was sad when I finished it but another book is expected to be coming out October 3rd 2017.

Being Jazz: My Life As A (Transgender) Teen by Jazz Jennings

28698224

I would rate this book ★★★★★

What can I say about this book? Jazz Jennings is amazing. She’s only young but she knows what she wants in life and she goes after it. She is an advocate for the LGBTQ family, she stands up for what she believes in, she loves her family fiercely and they return the love just as fiercely. I love everything there is about this girl. She’s a great role model, she’s a lover of mermaids, as am I. This book chronicles her life as she transitioned from Jaron to Jazz, it talks about her struggles going through life when people are less than kind, the judgements she gets, not being allowed on the girls soccer team because she is a “boy”, her relationships with her family, friends, boys (or lack of attention from boys), her love of soccer, exclusion from every day life things most people take for granted, etc. It’s such a great book I highly recommend this one. It is very educational and informative.

The Maze Runner Series by James Dashner

 

th

I would rate this series ★★★★★

This series was huge a number of years ago and I regret that it took me so long to read it. It is about a boy named Thomas who was dropped into a Glade without his memory, he is 1 of I think 15 other boys who also have no memory of how they got to where they are, they just adapted. They all have assigned jobs and have to learn how to do them and there is one rule in the Glade, never go into the maze at night. Continue reading “The Maze Runner Series by James Dashner”

Big Trouble by Dave Barry

I would rate this book ★★★★★

This book is about a man named Puggy who is a very simple man who finds himself in the most funniest situations. I couldn’t stop laughing at this book from beginning to end. My mom had recommended it to me and I was instantly drawn in by the situations in the story. Puggy is homeless and finds himself a tree in someone’s back yard, he decides to live in the tree, and he can see everything that goes on from where he’s at. He falls in love with the house keeper because of the music she plays in her bedroom, he witnesses what he thinks is a break in and tries to intervene which ends in complete hilarity, he finds himself in the company of bad men who stole a nuclear weapon, these are just some of the situations he gets himself into. It is one of the funniest stories I’ve read in a long time and I highly suggest it, it’s just too good to pass up. I am definitely going to be reading this again.

If You Ask Me by Betty White

9972053

I would rate this book ★★★★★

I love books like this and plus it’s Betty White who couldn’t love her? So obviously I had to give her a high rating. This book is one of the books she had written, I think she’s written at least 3 books. This book is laugh out loud hilarious. It talks about her times on Hot In Cleveland, SNL, Golden Girls, and many behind the scenes stuff too. It mostly talks about her life’s passions: animals. She’s met Koko the gorilla, she has multiple dogs, and she does a lot of charity work for animals in need. It has some information about her husband who has passed away some time ago, and their life together. Betty is a great animal loving person and she’s so funny. I would definitely read this again and her other books. If you want a laugh out loud biography this is the one you should read.

 

The 5th Wave Series by Rick Yancey

I’m sure you’ve heard of this one. If not it is about a girl named Cassiopeia or Cassie for short.

Soon enough they find out The Others are there to rid the Earth of humans. They begin attacking in what the humans are calling the 5 waves, The first wave was called “Lights Out” and it was an electromagnetic pulse that wiped out all of Earths technology and anything that runs on electricity. The first wave killed around half a million people. Continue reading “The 5th Wave Series by Rick Yancey”

Miracles From Heaven by Christy Wilson Beam

I would rate this book ★★★

A while ago I read Miracles From Heaven, I was conflicted about reading it because it talks about Heaven and God. I was drawn to the book because of Annabel’s medical history. I was born with Spina Bifida so with having that I grew up in and out of the hospital, meeting multiple doctors, and having multiple procedures. So I related to her really well.
