Amy Curry is not looking forward to her summer. Her mother decided to move across the country and now it's Amy's responsibility to get their car from California to Connecticut. The only problem is, since her father died in a car accident, she isn't ready to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger. An old family friend, he also has to make the cross-country trip - and has plenty of baggage of his own.

This book was literally breathtaking. A beautiful and instructive story about travel, love, friendship, founding yourself and facing your own fears. Great plot, lovely characters and wonderful summer climate. And of course - one amazing trip.

I felt a lot of emotions reading it. It’s a story that arouses the hunger of travel and exploring your own world. You won’t regret reading it! 

"The best discoveries always happened to the people who weren't looking for them." I will certainly read this story many times. Just marvelous! :)

Hush Hush


Becca Fitzpatrick

Hush hush

For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life!

[publisher's description]

The book is about fallen angels and forbidden love. It’s very well written in simple language and that’s why you can read it quickly. The plot is unusual, interesting and it makes you willingly continue reading. The characters are very thoughtfully created. Each of them is different, and their character features work together perfectly and create truly logical and credible personalities. The characters’ feelings are described in such a way that you can easily imagine them and thanks to this you can understand the actions of the heroes. You can also put yourself in their places and try to think what you could do.

The story is surprising and full of suspense. So much so that after reading the first part you are eager to delve into the next ones.

I chose “Hush Hush” because I love books on this general subject and this story did not disappoint me. So I really recommend it to everyone who likes reading stories with a little bit of fantasy and love in one.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before


Jenny Han

To All the Boys I've Loved Before

This book is about 16-year-old Lara Jean and all her love letters. They aren't love letters that someone else wrote to her, these are ones she's written herself. She never tells her crushes that she loves them but instead writes a letter about it and hides it in a hatbox under her bed - one for every boy she's ever loved. Her letters are her most secret possession. There are five in total: to Kenny from a camp, Peter from the seventh grade, Lucas from her homecoming party, John Ambrose form Model UN and Josh. She writes a letter when she has a crush so intense that she doesn't know what else to do. Re-reading her letters reminds her of how powerful her emotions can be, how all-consuming. When she writes them, she pours out her heart and soul in them and says all the things she would never say in real life because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed and suddenly Lara Jean's love life gets from imaginary to out of control...

This book is perfect for romatnics. Jenny Han, the author, debuted with the book "The Summer I Turned Pretty" and then wrote "To All the Boys I"ve Loved Before". For a 39-year-old woman she writes in a very "young" language. The whole story is very consistent and funny. I think this book can feel very realistic to young people because it shows almost every aspect of our lives. I really like and recommend "To All the Boys..." to everyone who likes to read love stories.

Second Chance Summer


Morgan Matson

Second Chance Summer

Taylor Edwards’ family might not be the closest-knit - everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled, but for the most part, they get along just fine. Then Taylor’s dad gets devastating news, and her parents decide that the family will spend one last summer all together at their old lake house in the Pocono Mountains. As the summer progresses and the Edwards become more of a family, they’re more aware than ever that they’re battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance - with family, with friends, and with love.

[publisher's description]

This book evoked a lot of feelings in me. First of all, this is not a love story! Of course there is a little bit of romance... BUT the story is mainly about facing adversities, forgiveness, regaining the people we care about, and saying goodbye to our beloved. I think this is a perfect book for everyone, regardless of age or preferences, because each of us encounters some problems in life and needs someone who will help us get through hard times. And I also think, like the author, that everyone deserves a second chance...

I highly recommend this book to everyone! :)

PS. Provide yourself with tissues!!!

The Scorch Trials


James Dashner

The Scorch Trials (The Maze Runner, Book 2)

Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escaping meant he would get his life back. But no one knew what sort of life they were going back to... Burned and baked, the earth is a wasteland, its people driven mad by an infection known as the Flare. Instead of freedom, Thomas must face another trial. He must cross the Scorch to once again save himself and his friends...

(publisher's description)

 

The book is written in a language that doesn't bore the readers and encourages them to continue. The story is surprising and holds us in tension. In fact, when I was sure that something was going to happen something completely different happened. The places are described in such a way that you can easily imagine the action taking place in them.

I recommend the book to everyone who would like to read an interesting book with elements of fantasy.
