You may or may not know, but I am a big book nerd. I love reading just like my mom and grandmother. However, I usually have the hardest time finding books that are appropriate for my age, but yet still have an interesting plot and characters. Anyone feel the pain? I have come across some that I want to read this year, so I thought I’d tell you so you can get some ideas too.
Red Queen – I’ve heard this book is good, and nobody in my family has ever read it, so I thought I’d give it a shot. There’s a first time for everything, right?
Divergent – I first heard of this book when the movie came out and our friend was in it. The storyline sounded interesting so why not read it?
The Hiding Place -Ahh y’all!! This book is one of my favorites of all time. I’ve already read it, but not in a few years. Do y’all have those books you go back to over and over again? Tell me in the comments below! I’d love to hear some new ones!
The Selection -I have seen this on a few of my friends bookshelves and I hope I get to read it soon! I was drawn to it by the pretty cover, but I looked up the summary of it, and it looked like a good one.
Anne of Ingleside -Anne of Ingleside is the 6th book in the Anne of Green Gables series. I started this series when I was younger, but never finished it. The books are some of my favorites and I can’t wait to see how the story ends! One of my goals this year is to finally finish the series, and this is the next step.
Out of the Dust -I’ve never read, or heard of this book. I saw it on a list for good books though and the plot sounded interesting. This one’s a leap of faith, but I’m excited to try something new.
Bridge to Terabithia -This book my mom suggested a year or two back, but I never read it. I decided this was the year!
The Outsiders -This book was read by my friends last year, and they all raved on how much they enjoyed it. I thought this year would be a good year to finally read it.
I hope all these books gave you some good ideas on what to read next! I know I’m looking forward to a great year of books! Happy reading!
XOXO, Mary Anneliese
