So, a few weeks ago I entered a contest on the wonderful website called Epic Reads(which is an awesome site, I 100% think that you should check it out) and I won a contest for the book One by Sarah Crossan. I read it and it was an AMAZING book which I will now review for yall!
So, One is about conjoined twins, by the names of Tippi and Grace, and how they live their lives. It goes through Tippi and Grace's struggles as conjoined twins and the various ups and downs like making new friends and going to a new school. The story is funny, but serious and takes you through many different feelings (especially in the end) but is amazing.
Sarah Crossan writes in free-verse and the book is so beautifully written and is an amazing read that takes you through many different emotions.
I would 100% recommended reading this book because it is amazing and so emotional! And, THANK YOU SO MUCH Epic Reads for sending me this book!!! I appreciate it so much!
If you have any recommendations for books that I should read next please,feel free to comment below!
Hello! This week I will be reviewing Paperweight by Meg Haston.
Paperweight follows the path of a young girl named Stephanie(Stevie) who is signed up for a 60 day treatment facility in New Mexico. Stevie is slowly starving herself by purging and binging because she thinks that she is the reason why her beloved brother is dead. She agrees to go to the facility only because she doesn't think that she will be there long enough to do her any good because her brother's death "anniversary" is coming up. But, with new knowledge coming to her she realizes, maybe she isn't the reason why he died?
This realistic yet tragic tale is amazing and full of emotion as you replay the past and live in the present with Stevie. Her many decisions and tragedies in her life are depressing, yet you keep reading with the urge for more.
This novel is amazing because it is so realistic, and wonderful but depressing at the same time and making you experience so many feelings just like you are right there with Stevie.
Hey guys! So this week I will be reviewing the book Everyday by David Levithan.
This book is about a young soul named A. Everyday A changes bodies. A can wake up as a boy, girl, big, small, anyone really. Except that the body is always the same age as A.
One day A wakes up in a body of a boy. The day was going to turn out normal until A meets a girl who turns out to be the boy's girlfriend. It is love at first sight for A. A skips school with her and takes her to the beach instead. They bond instantly. Later that night, when they are falling asleep, A calls her. He wants her to know that everyday won't be like this. And when A wakes up the next day, he knows one thing. That he must see her again.
This book is the incredible story between these two souls. And A's life with her is complicated enough until someone else might have figured out A's secret. And he might not be the only one like this.
This book is a great paranormal-romance with twists and turns coming out of every corner. It is an amazing book that you would want to read over and over again.
This story is amazing and original and leaves you begging for more. It has many twists and turns and is an incredible tale.
Hello and welcome to The Book Enigma! This is my first post on this blog so, in honor of this first post, I will do a review on the book that really started me off reading! The Lightning Thief from the Percy Jackson!
Now, before I start this review I will give you a quick history of my reading "career". I've read all my life starting young but I only really read the books from my elementary school library. I did read Harry Potter(several times actually) but I eventually ran out of books to read. Fast forward two years to the middle of my first year in middle school. I had met a friend(Varya co-owner of this blog) and we talked about various things like cats and etc. We talked about books sometimes, but not as much as now. Then, one day she started telling me about this random book series about greek mythology. I was interested so later that day I researched it and bought the first book online. Soon I finished the series, eating up each new book with determination. When I finished reading the Percy Jackson books I quickly started the Heros of Olympus(the spin off series) then I found more and more books until I was completely obsessed with novels and in general, reading. And now, 4 years later, here I am.
So, now for my review of The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan:
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan is the outstanding start to a amazing young-adult fiction(it seems a little like a children's book like Harry Potter to me though) series. It teaches kids and teenagers greek mythology while providing a great story line. The book was actually a story that he made up for his son who has ADHD and dyslexia so all of the demigods(the sons and daughters of a human and a god exp: Hercules, Perseus, etc.) in the series have those two disabilities.
The book starts out as Percy Jackson going to a school field trip, visiting a museum. Everything starts out normal until he gets attacked by one of his teachers who was actually a herpy. Then throughout the day he learns the his best friend Grover is actually a satyr whose told to protect Percy, and that a minotaur is after him. As he flees the city with Grover and his mom the reach Half-Blood hill and is almost alright until the minotaur catches up to him at kidnaps his mom. As him and Grover enter through the mysterious gate on the hill, he find out that he is actually in a greek camp for demigods.
In the camp he meets other campers and even some mythical figures like Chiron(who was actually his history teacher Mr. Burner) and the greek god Dionysus.
He trains there with them to get stronger and to find out who his godly parent is, so that he can save his mom from Hades who thinks that Percy has Zeus's lightning bolt. And throughout his stay there he meets many new friend and even gets a love interest.
This book is an amazing start to this series. You get hooked right away and always crave for more. It is written amazingly and set in modern-day Rhode Island. I personally learned a lot about greek mythology in these books and recommended for everyone interested in the subject and even if your not, you can still get hooked on the fast-paced story line.
This book is great for young readers, because it has kid friendly language and has an amazing storyline and great use of mythology.
