Day 13 – A Book That Made You Sad

I love a sad book, especially the kind that has you sobbing uncontrollably while you read through your tears. I’ve read a few good ones like that.

If I had to just choose one, I would choose Me Before You by Jojo Moyes for the book that made me sad.

Day 12 – A Book That Made You Happy

Summer Blog Challenge – Day 6

Day 6 – Favourite contemporary read

There were a few titles that came to mind for this prompt but they were mostly overhyped for their time (and really, we’re they my favourite?). Titles like The Fault in our Stars, Looking for Alaska (I’m just listing John Green novels now), The Handmaiden tale and Perks of being a Wallflower. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed all of these titles and most in the contemporary section. But they weren’t my favourite.

My favourite contemporary read(s) would be Anna and the French Kiss series by Stephanie Perkins.
