The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins is a psychological thriller centered around the life of Rachel Watson. Rachel is an alcoholic who is grieving her divorce with her exhusband Tom. Since she takes the 8:04 to work every day, she becomes familiar with the houses she passes, so familiar that she creates a storyline in her head of a seemingly perfect couple in the house by her exhusband’s, who she names Jess and Jason.
I’ll Give you the Sun by Jandy Nelson is a contemporary YA book about a pair of twins, Noah and Jude. Noah and Jude have always been super close but multiple life changing events and lies have torn them apart. The book is written in a dual-perspective, changing every other chapter. Noah’s story is told when he is 13 and Jude’s when she is 16. At 13, Noah is artistic and in love with his new neighbor, Brian, and Jude is wearing red lipstick and high heels.
My recent book purchases:
1. Rebel Belle (In paperback!!)
I’ve been waiting to read Rebel Belle forever! First of all, the cover is absolutely adorable. I want to display it on my bookshelf forever and ever. But not only does it have a gorgeous cover, book bloggers have been raving about it ever since its release in April last year. From what I’ve heard, Rebel Belle is funny, sweet, and actionpacked. Rebel Belle definitely doesn’t seem like the typical chick book.
Hopeless, by Colleen Hoover, is the story of a 17 year old girl name Sky. Sky isn’t at all like your normal teenager. She is completely secluded from technology (she doesn’t even know what lol means) and she’s been home schooled for as long as she can remember from her adopted mom, Karen. She has a promiscuous reputation that only is more exaggerated by being best friends with her next door neighbor Six.
