Presh's Reading List

So for those of you that don't know me... I read a lot. I mean I sincerely love reading. Sometimes I end up reading more than studying and not a good thing. But ever since I was little books  have just been one of those things that make me genuinely happy.

So my lovely brother gave me a gift card to Barnes & Nobles and I carefully picked out four books that I'll review.(There wont be any spoilers I promise... just brief synopsis's of each book...what I felt, what I thought...) There will be one review every month that way you can look up the book, buy it or borrow it from the library and read it with me.

So here are the 4 books in the order I'll be reading them:
April: Girl In translation By Jean Kwok 


When Kimberly Chang and her mother emigrate from Hong Kong to Brooklyn squalor, she quickly begins a secret double life: exceptional schoolgirl during the day, Chinatown sweatshop worker in the evenings. Disguising the more difficult truths of her life-like the staggering degree of her poverty, the weight of her family's future resting on her shoulders, or her secret love for a factory boy who shares none of her talent or ambition-Kimberly learns to constantly translate not just her language but herself back and forth between the worlds she straddles.
May: Thirteen Reasons Why By Jay Asher


Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker–his classmate and crush–who committed suicide two weeks earlier. 
On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list.

June: My name Is Memory By Ann Brashares

Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. For all the times that he and Sophia have been connected throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart.
But just when Sophia (now "Lucy" in the present) finally awakens to the secret of their shared past, the mysterious force that has always separated them reappears. Ultimately, they must come to understand what stands in the way of their love if they are ever to spend a lifetime together.
July: Delirium By Lauren Oliver


There was a time when love was the most important thing in the world. People would go to the end of the earth to find it. They would tell lies for it. Even kill for it. Then, at last, they found the cure. Now, everything is different. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Haloway has always looked forward to the day when she'll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. But then, with only ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable.

Happy Reading! 
And Until next time,
Live Beautifully!
Presh :)
