Summer Reading

Since I have survived my first few days and the first Monday of my sophomore year, I thought now would be a good time to discuss summer reading.
I’d have to say my two favorite authors this summer were definitely Chuck Palahniuk and Jennifer Brown.
I suggest Chuck Palahniuk to anyone who asks for books to read. Although his books are almost always confusing in the beginning, they always are worth it by the end. I don’t understand how he comes up with such intricate plotlines that always fit together and make sense by the end of the book, no matter how confused I was in the beginning. It’s simply amazing.
Read my review for Invisible Monsters and Fight Club.
Jennifer Brown is that kind of author who could probably write about anything and it would be good. I love her writing style and how she brings her characters to life. Bitter End and Hate List are two of my favorite books. Both of them had me hooked from the beginning. They are both also easy to relate to and life-like because they deal with real life situations.

This year, I was required to read two books for my Honors English class. I read Climbing the Stairs by Padma Venkatraman and The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. Climbing the Stairs was probably the first required summer reading book that I could actually tolerate, although it was the opposite for the Alchemist. I didn’t like it very much.

Well, I hope you all had a lovely summer, and good luck this school year!
