Hey guys! I hope your day has been amazing so far! Mine has, because …. IT WAS ABOVE ZERO TODAY! I almost forgot what the sun looked like. XD
Yesterday, I made myself a set of bookshelves and I really really wanted to show them to you. But that kinda sounded boring. So I thought I would go through my shelves and show you all my books aswell! 🙂
So this bottom shelf is for books I have read and enjoyed or, books I want to read.
And this top shelf is for books that have a sentimental value. That might sound really dumb but it’s true so, phht.
So now I guess, I’ll just show you my books and tell you my thoughts on them. 🙂
First up, ‘Tales of Beedle the Bard’ by J.K. Rowling. Sorry for the face, I borrowed this one from the library.
(Disclaimer; You won’t get my fangirling unless you’ve read Harry Potter.)
I really love all the little detailed illustrations.
I think it’s funny Hermione translated it and, I mean you’ve gotta love Dumbledore’s
some what over complicated notes!
So, I thought this book was a fun addition to the Harry Potter series. Some of the stories are a little weird but they’re all really fun. So, for andyone who wants to read ‘Babbity Rabbity and her Cackling Stump’ I would recommend this book.
Next is ‘Jane Eyre’ by Charlotte Brontë.
I have a some what beat-up copy, that I bought from the library for 50¢.
I haven’t read it yet, but I’m starting it tonight, and I’ll tell you what I think soon. 🙂
Then, I have ‘The Glass Castle’ by Jerry Jenkins and Trisha Priebe.
I really love the cover. It’s just so pretty. XD Anyways, I haven’t read this one yet.
Next is my very very favorite… ‘The Sacketts’ by Louis L’amour. These books are THE BEST. Period.
This volume has ‘Galloway’, ‘The Sky-Liners’, ‘The Man From the Broken Hills’, and “Ride the Dark Trail’. So far I’ve only read “Galloway’, and “Ride the Dark Trail’. ‘Ride the Dark Trail’ is one of my all time favorite books, I love Em Talon, and Logan, who my brother is named after, is… just awesome. If anyone can tell me what Em’s ranch is called they get, um… five fake bucks? But seriously comment what Em’s ranch is called and you’ll have my undying respect.
Oh, Galloway was really good too. XD
Next I have ‘A Cup of Cold Water’, by Christine Farenhorst. I have always been really interested by Edith Cavell, and this book was no different. Miss Cavell was inspirational and I love reading about her. This book was very interesting, I liked how it was historically accurate. So, yeah. Go read this one too.
Now, we have ‘The Mysterious Benedict Society’ by Trenton Lee Stewart.
I really love the cover. So, I like this book a lot. I had fun challenging my self to figure out the puzzles be fore they gave the answers. Also, just in case you think the way to answer the questions on Reynie’s first test is ridiculous, my grandma once took a test like that so don’t scorn too soon. 😉 Over all, a really funny and interesting book, definitely a good read!
Next, ‘The Tennant of Widfell Hall’ by Anne Brontë.
So, I started this book quite a while back. I’ve found it slow and a little hard to read. In the beginning I was confused as to who the narrator was, assuming it would be a girl. I finally figured out that the narrator is the brother, but it took me a while. I think I would have enjoyed this one if it wasn’t so slow. 🙂
Ok, onto the first and second ‘Land of Stories’ books, by Chris Colfer.
So I really liked theses books. I thought they were really fun, although I think the idea of adding to fairy tales is a little over used already. But they are definitely a good read.
Now we have, my pride and joy….
My American Girl books!
Firstly, I have ‘Samantha Saves the Day’, and ‘Samantha Learns a Lesson’. I haven’t read either yet.
I have ‘Meet Molly’, next. I thought this book was cute and fun. I especially agree with Molly about the turnips. ;D
‘Meet Addy’ brings up the important historical issue of slavery. Sadly this book ends in a mega cliffhanger, and I can’t get the next one. 😦
‘Meet Josefina’ I didn’t like as much as the others. I’m not sure why, it just wasn’t my favorite.
‘Meet Kirsten’ I really enjoyed. I especially loved the end. 🙂
And lastly, I have ‘Saige’, which I haven’t read yet.
Next on the shelf, we have ‘The Gammage Cup’.
This book is a good read for a younger audience. (8-12-ish) I thought the ‘Fancy’ names were hilarious. But now that I’ve read Harry Potter, I can’t read it with out think ‘Why do they keep insulting the main character.’ XD
Now on to ‘Divergent’ by Veronica Roth.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s kind of like ‘Hunger Games’ or ‘The Giver’, but different. I would recommend it but cation younger readers, there is some mature subject matter. 🙂
Next, three books I’ve never read, two by Louis L’amour, and ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’ by Thomas Hardy.
Next up, we have a compilation of Jane Austen novels.
There are seven books altogether, only two of which I have read so far. I always love classic books and so I for sure recommend all of these.
Next is my Mom’s book.
This book has five stories inside. I really enjoyed all of them, except for ‘Kirkland Revels’. I found it a little too dark. But I thought all the other ones were really good.
Next we have two ‘Tintin’ comics. I love Tintin, and I especially love drawing him. 🙂
Now I’m going to go onto the second shelf, but I’m not going to go into too much detail.
First I have my special colouring books,
Second, my Odysseo Cavalia book from when my dad and I went to the show. BTW, it was amazing.
Third, ‘Silent in an Evil Time’ which is about Edith Cavell.
Fourth, fifth, and sixth, I have two joke books, and a signed copy of ‘The Stolen Princess’, by Katherine Wilson.
Seventh, my three ‘Mandie’ volumes.
Next, ‘You’re All My Favorites’, and last, but not least, Taryn, Claire, and Charlie’s journals.
So, That’s my bookshelf! Please tell me what you think and don’t forget to comment the name of Em’s ranch down below!
Bye for now!
