A Few Of My Favorite Books

1

Jag är helt galen i böcker, jag läser nästan varje dag, det kan vara en halv mening till en halv bok. 99% av böckerna jag läser är på engelska, har säkert läst endast en svensk bok inom de senaste tre åren och av över 20 lästa böcker. Jag brukade hålla mig till mer romantiska noveller, men nu på senaste tiden har jag hittat min kärlek till dikt böcker, fan fictions, fakta böcker och memoärer. Här är bara en handful av mina senaste favorit böcker. All text nedan är från goodreads. Vilken är en sida jag rekommenderar till alla som läser aktivt böcker!!!

I'm such a bookworm, I read almost everyday, it can be just one sentence or half a book even. 99% of the books are read are in english, I've probably read one swedish book in the last three years now. I used to only read love novels, or teen books, but recently I've gotten into poem books, fan fictions, fact books and memoirs. Here's just a handful of my favorite books I've read pretty recently. All text is from goodreads. Which is a site I recommend to all you fellow bookworms!!!

Paper Towns by John Green
Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew...

The Reason I Jump (One Boy's Voice From The Silence Of Autism) by Naoki Higashida
Using an alphabet grid to painstakingly construct words, sentences, and thoughts that he is unable to speak out loud, Naoki answers even the most delicate questions that people want to know. Questions such as: “Why do people with autism talk so loudly and weirdly?” “Why do you line up your toy cars and blocks?” “Why don’t you make eye contact when you’re talking?” and “What’s the reason you jump?” (Naoki’s answer: “When I’m jumping, it’s as if my feelings are going upward to the sky.”) With disarming honesty and a generous heart, Naoki shares his unique point of view on not only autism but life itself. His insights—into the mystery of words, the wonders of laughter, and the elusiveness of memory—are so startling, so strange, and so powerful that you will never look at the world the same way again.

Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Charlie is a freshman. And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it.
Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mix tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But he can't stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.

Looking For Alaska by John Green
Before. Miles "Pudge" Halter's whole existence has been one big nonevent, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave the "Great Perhaps" (François Rabelais, poet) even more. He heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed-up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young, who is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart.
After. Nothing is ever the same.
