These are the books I hope I'll get to in June. Very different books pretty much. It'll be fun.
Marissa Meyer wrote an awesome version of Cinderella where Cinder is a very
badass cyborg, living in a society that doesn’t like cyborgs. The second book
in the Lunar Chronicles is based on Red Riding Hood. It is set in the same
world as Cinder, and as far as I know Cinder appears in the book. When I
finished Cinder I was really anxious to read Scarlet but I didn’t have it. Now
I’ve read a bunch of other books in between, so I hope I’ll catch up again. I
think it’ll be fun. I like fairy tales, I used to love them when I grew up, and
I love reimagined fairy tales, so this’ll be fun. Excited.
Slaughterhouse-Five on my iPad mainly because I had heard Vonnegut was awesome
and the book was really cheap for kindle. I think that was why. I am finally
going to read it though. I didn’t really know what it was about, but now that I
know it’s about aliens and time travel I’m even more excited. It sounds really
cool, and I am always trying to read more classics, so that’ll be fun.
Gaiman is one of my favourite authors. He writes so beautifully, and I love
him. Also he is releasing a new book this year, so I feel like I need to catch
up and finish his books. At the same time I don’t want to finish them all too
soon. I’m too weird. Anyways, Neverwhere is about Richard Mayhew who discovers
an alternative, hidden London under the other London. There are angels and
labyrinths and everything else that’s fun. I am excited. Also I am looking
forward to the next Neil Gaiman book. That’ll be fun.
you said. This is apparently a modern classic. It’s about a group of ordinary
small boys marooned on a coral island. At first it seems like fun, but then
eventually their little society breaks down and they discover a primitive and
terrible part of themselves and a primitive world. Sometimes you speak to
someone and watch some TV show and they refer to something or other and you
don’t get it, but everyone else does. I don’t imagine Lord of the Flies will
solve all of those problems, but at least I’ll get some references. I watched
Hamlet and suddenly a lot of stuff fell into place, so that’ll be fun.
If I have
time I think I’ll read some more Austen. I am taking an English class and our
teacher has suggested some books we might read. One of them is Emma, and I
really liked Pride and Prejudice, so I think that it I’d quite like to read
Emma. The book is about a young single woman named Emma Woodhouse who doesn’t
particularly want to get married. She does however quite like interfering with
the love lives of other people. When she tries to find a match for a friend of
hers the whole plan sort of unravels and blows up in her face. It’s not the
kind of book I like reading, but I sort of hope Jane Austen’s awesomeness can
