Book 184 of 500!

This book was called This Is Me From Now On by Barbara Dee. I really enjoyed this book as well, and it was another quick read for me. About girls in Junior High and dealing with best friendships and a new girl in town, and her being a little odd and getting one girl into trouble!

Book 183 of 500!

This book was Trading Faces by Julia Devillers and Jennifer Roy. It was about identical twin sisters who are starting junior high, and they end up switching places and cause a whole bunch of problems!! It was a really cute book and a really fast read. I also love how this book had the 2 authors, who are also identical twin sisters, each write a chapter and switch off like the other book I just read!!! I think this is my new favorite style of reading and books!!

This book was Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Playscript by J.K. Rowling!! This was the story of what happened many years later after the original Harry Potter series ended, and now Harry and all the others are all grown up and have kids of their own! It was AMAZING!!! I really wish they would have made this into a movie with all of the same actors! It would have been so awesome!!! I read this so quickly! I also loved that it was written like a play, I love reading books like that, makes it so much more fun!!!

This book was Grand Canyon’s Phantom Ranch by Robert W. Audretsch. I saw it when Darrell and I went to the Grand Canyon for our 1 year anniversary trip and we took the mule ride down the canyon, but we just did the day trip, down and back up in a day. So we never actually got to go to Phantom Ranch. So instead I got to read this book about it and see all of the pictures. It just made me really want to do the mule trip again but this time stay 2 nights down there before heading back up!!!

This book was called The Rule of One by Ashley & Leslie Saunders. The book was about identical twin sisters and also written by identical twin sisters where each sister wrote one chapter about the twin they were writing about and they took turns back and forth which I thought was pretty cool. My dad also really loved this book it was about where the government had a rule of one child per family only, and if you had more than one you got in trouble and the other child would get taken, including if you had twins, you had to choose which one you wanted to keep. It was very interesting and very good, and apparently there is a sequel being written! I sure hope so!

Book 179 of 500!

This book was called The Air Raid Killer by Frank Goldammer. It was taken place in a town in Germany during the end of World War 2. I thought it would have more to do with the Holocaust, but it really didn’t. It didn’t start getting good until halfway through the book, because it was about horrible murders that were taking place in this town, but how the detective had to deal with it while also being told what to do by the Fuhrer and his henchman.

This book was Pride Over Pity by Kailyn Lowry. She is one of the Teen Mom’s from the show 16 & Pregnant and then Teen Mom 2. Darrell and I have been watching these shows since the beginning, and most of the girls wrote books, so I’m trying to read them all to really go further and see what their lives were like and are like! It was a good quick read!

This was another book in the I Am Number Four series by Pittacus Lore. This one was called The Legacy Chronicles: Chasing Ghosts. This story is just so good, it’s so hard always having to wait for the next book in the series! And then when I have it, I read it so fast when I just want it to last! I really can’t say it enough that everyone should read this entire series!

Books 175 & 176 of 500!

Both of these books are short stories by Gwen Cooper. But about cats! They are titled: Fanny Trouble and Spray Anything! Honestly it’s been awhile since I read these, so I don’t quite remember the details, but I do remember they were funny! And they are true! And I love that I get another free cat story every month written by her about her cats thanks to my dad buying me a year subscription!!!!

I’m putting these 2 books in the same post because they are both by Gwen Cooper. They are called Cat Carrier Tango and Them!! I love Gwen Cooper and her stories about her cats! Cat Carrier Tango was HILARIOUS! It was about trying to get 3 cats to the vet in NYC and all the mishaps! Them was about being overtaken in their apartment by moths!! Also very funny!!

Fugitive Six: Lorien Legacies Reborn by Pittacus Lore. This is another book in the I Am Number Four series my dad and I read!! I can’t believe this series is still going on, but so glad that it is! It’s hard to believe that my mom introduced the 2 of us before she died, and we still get to read them! I can’t stress enough how great this book series is!!

This book was I Am, I Am, I Am: 17 Brushes With Death by Maggie O’Farrell. I don’t know where I got this book or why, but it was VERY interesting! This person Maggie, has actually had 17 brushes with death in her lifetime!! Some of them were and could have been VERY severe too! It’s really hard to believe all these things happened to her and yet she is still alive and well!!

This book was Bulletproof by Maci Bookout. Maci was one of the original OG girls from the MTV series Teen Mom, which stemmed from the show 16 and Pregnant. Believe it or not, Darrell actually has watched this show with me from day one!! I’ve always wanted to read all of the girls books and finally got this one. Definitely a quick and interesting read for me!

Book 169 of 500!

This book was The Secret Holocaust Diaries: The Untold Story of Nonna Bannister, by herself. I read through this book very quickly. If you know my interest in the Holocaust then you know that all of these types of books definitely interest me. But I love the ones by the actual survivors so that we can really try to feel and understand what they all went through. I highly recommend this book!

Books 159 through 168

I’m putting 10 books in this post because they are from the I Survived series. They are:

  1. Sinking of the Titanic
  2. Shark Attacks of 1916
  3. Hurricane Katrina
  4. Bombing of Pearl Harbor
  5. San Francisco Earthquake
  6. Attacks of September 11, 2001
  7. Battle of Gettysburg
  8. Japanese Tsunami
  9. Nazi Invasion
  10. Destruction of Pompeii

These books were awesome, even though technically they were written for teens! Obviously I real through them VERY quickly, but these are my favorite types of books!! I was very sad when I finished all 10 however I  just found out that there were actually 18 books but my set only came with 10! So I’m glad there are 8 more I can read, but bummed that my set didn’t include them all, guess I need to go find the rest of them now!!
