Books in June

These are the books I hope I'll get to in June. Very different books pretty much. It'll be fun. 

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

So, 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 by Kurt Vonnegut
I bought 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.

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Neil 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.

Lord of the Flies by William Golding
Classics 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.

Emma by Jane Austen
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 fix that.
