I don't talk about it a lot on my blog, but I am a total bookworm. Growing up, books were something of great value in my household, and almost weekly we would all trek to our local library, and when we got home, we would try and find a spot in our overflowing bookshelves to fit in our borrowed books. I almost always have a book on the go, and consistently find comfort in their black-and-white pages.
Since I've been on summer vacation, I've been reading quite a lot lately, so I thought that I'd share with you my five favourite books that I've read recently. Just to let you know, none of these books are particularly happy. In fact, the majority of them are quite sad.
Finley Hart has been sent to her Grandparents house for the summer. Her parents needed some time alone to talk, so they shipped her off to her father's parents who she has never met. When Finley has has one of her "blue days", which happens quite a lot, she writes about the Everwood, a forest of her invention in her notebook. But when she arrives at her Grandparent's house, she finds the Everwood right behind it.
When Sora is diagnosed with ALS, he turns to an Internet chatroom for a source of comfort. Feeling trapped in his own body, he finds friends in strangers, and learns more about life, and death, each day.
When Ceony Twill graduates at the top of her class from Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined, she is crushed to receive an apprenticeship in paper magic instead of metal. Yet while she is learning from Magician Emery Thane, she discovers the wonders of paper magic. But when an Excisioner, a magician of dark magic, arrives at their cottage and rips Emery Thane's heart from his chest, Ceony must embark on an extremely dangerous quest to save the life of her teacher.
