I know we are already into the month of May, so this post is a little late but I just had to put up a book post and what better post than a to be read! Although the month of May will be a busy month, I am determined to finish these books!
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Synopsis: Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.
What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time. (source)
This book was being made into a movie adaptation that will come out June 3rd, 2016 in North America. I really look forward to reading this and hope it lives up to the hype.
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
Synopsis: Greg Gaines is the last master of high school espionage, able to disappear at will into any social environment. He has only one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time making movies, their own incomprehensible versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics. Until Greg’s mother forces him to rekindle his childhood friendship with Rachel. Rachel has been diagnosed with leukemia—-cue extreme adolescent awkwardness—-but a parental mandate has been issued and must be obeyed. When Rachel stops treatment, Greg and Earl decide the thing to do is to make a film for her, which turns into the Worst Film Ever Made and becomes a turning point in each of their lives.And all at once Greg must abandon invisibility and stand in the spotlight.

This book was also made into a movie and I would love to watch the movie but according to the 10th Readers Commandment “thou shall not watch movie before reading the book”. This books seems very quirky and light hearted, even when addressing death. Often times, books become dark when discussing death but I feel like this book will add a little but of light but still keep it realistic.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K Rowling
All Harry Potter wants is to get away from the Dursleys and go back to Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby – who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike. And strike it does. For in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockheart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls’ bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley’s younger sister, Ginny. But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone–or something–starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects… Harry Potter himself.(source)
“A fan favourite, if you haven’t read Harry Potter, get out from under the rock your living under”. Well unfortunately this is me. So I made it a bonding activity with my little sister to read the series. We just finished the Philosophers Stone and now we are on the the next!
