During frustrating times lately (so thankful for so many things, but also so stick of being stuck at home all the time with nothing to do), I have escaped into my favorite past time: reading.
These are the books I have read lately…
- The Help – I read it in a day and a half. It was really nice to escape in a story that had me reading and reading.
- Catching Fire – This is the sequel to The Hunger Games… Not as good as the first book but I was excited to continue the story. The ending literally gave me shivers.
- House on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet – I really liked this book. You all know I love learning about history. This book by James Ford is about a little boy and a little girl, one Chinese and one Japanese, who become friends despite the animosity between their respective immigrant groups, in Seattle during World War II. It was interesting to learn about the conflict between the Chinese-Americans and Japanese-Americans during this time, stemming from the war going on between Japan and China, among other things. The characters were amazing and I could really feel the emotions of the main character, Henry. I think the title is corny, but I would recommend the book. I like the message that it’s never too late for anything, especially that it’s never too late to find happiness for yourself.
You can see all my books on goodreads.com (let me know if you want to be friends, I need more friends and recommendations on there 😉 ).
What have you read lately? When is your favorite time to read? Your favorite place? I love to read anywhere and everywhere, but especially outside in the afternoon, and at night in bed.
