BOOKS TO READ OVER HOLIDAY BREAK



I think holiday is the best time for reading books as you can easily find time for it. Because I am a horribly slow reader I've decided to make a "Holiday Reading List" in which I've included four books. I hope it will motivate me to read faster or at least more frequently. I know that for many of you, reading four books in eight weeks is a piece of cake, but for me - it's a challenge. 

I'm already in the middle of one of these books. I've started reading "Billy And Me" by Giovanna Fletcher about two weeks ago and I'm loving it so far. I'm reading it even slower as it is in English, not my native language. I'm really curious about what will happen in the second half of the book!

The next book I'm going to read is called "The Lost Hero" and it is the first part of the series "Heroes of Olympus" written by Rick Riordan. I've already read the whole Riordan's series called "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" which I totally loved and that's why I've decided to start the next series. 

Next one to read will probably be "City of Bones" - the first book of the series called "Mortal Instruments" written by Cassandra Clare. The reason why I chose this book is the film that is to be released in August this year. As I always think books are better than films, I really want to read the story before watching it on the big screen. 

The last one is the legendary "Fault in Our Stars" by John Green. I don't really know what to expect from it but I've seen far too many pictures, quotes and gifs on Tumblr so when I saw it in the bookstore, I just couldn't help but buy it. I have high expectations of it and I really hope it doesn't disappoint me. 

Have you read any of these books? What do you think?

  2. Billy and Me - quite a good book, definitely not a bestseller type, but it's so nice to read it during lazy, sunny afternoon.
    City Of Bones - god, I don't remember if it actually is THAT good, but I really enjoyed reading it couple of years ago. Unfortunately series is getting boring after 3rd part. Still looking forward for the movie!
    Fault in Our Stars - This is on my 'Holiday Reading List', with other Green's books. No idea why didn't I read them by now.

  3. I've read the series by Cassandra Clare, well, up until book three as at the time that was where it ended. She has since released another two i think. They were quite good :)
