is a list of the books I shall attempt to read in August. All different kinds
of books, even though two are by the same author. I’m a rebel Yo. I should
never say Yo. I’m not street at all. I am pretty awesome though. Or weird, either
or. Anyways, here we go.
I’ve wanted to read this for a while. I love
Jennifer Lawrence, and that is the main reason. It’s about a man named Pat who
has just been released from a mental hospital. He thinks he’s been away for a
couple of months. But it’s really been years. He thinks his life is a film
directed by God and that the “silver lining” will be his successful reunion
with his wife Nikki. He spends his time exercising and reading complicated
books. He also becomes friends with Tiffany, a slightly odd girl who has also
moved home recently. They seem to have a very odd relationship. It seems very
interesting, and weird, and I’m looking forward to it.
So Mister Gaiman, we meet again? I’m excited
dude. I’ve been reading some Gaiman this year, and it made me excited, found
out he was publishing another book and I got equally excited. The Ocean at the
end of the Lane is about a man who comes home to his hometown to attend a
funeral and remembers something odd that happened when he was a child. He is
drawn to the end of a lane where he used to play as a child, where he met a
young girl named Lettie and her mother and grandmother. A man stole a car and
committed suicide in it when the main character was little. Something dark was
unleashed, and the little boy saw it. Lettie promises to take care of him and
protect him. It sounds sort of perfect and sort of weird, I’m excited.
the Gaiman. I’ve heard so many awesome things about this book. It’s a children’s
book, I think, about a girl who finds a copy of her flat behind a weird door
she has always been curious about. She finds her “other” parents, with creepy
black button eyes. They want to make her theirs and she tries to escape and
save her real parents. It sounds so scary, and exciting, and creepy, and I’m
looking forward to it, so much. Also, Neil Gaiman, dude.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
I want to read this book because it sounds
interesting. Also I kind of have to read a book written by a woman for a
Goodreas challenge. And this is written by a woman, I suck. Anyway, it’s about
a world where people have weird and interesting skills, called a Grace. The
people with these skills are exploited. The protagonist, Katsa, has the Grace
of killing. She is used and exploited by the king of her homeland to kill and
torture his enemies. She then meets a young man named Po, who is the prince of
another country, his Grace is combat skills. And then there’s some sort of
tension or something. I’ll find out. The cover art is gorgeous, and I like main
characters that aren’t necessarily good-guys.
like puking, and I don’t know why. Because of the aforementioned challenge I
have to read an orange book, I seem to only have one; the Alchemist. I’m not
entirely sure why I have it, or why I’m judgy, but I will try anything once, I
guess. So I’ll see what happens. It’s not a very long book. I think it’s weird
that I’m talking myself into reading this book, but I will.
read another one, but I don’t know which one yet, or if I have time. We shall
