The Handmaid's Tale Duology

5 min read

I will be comparing these books to the show, The Handmaid’s Tale. If you have not seen the show, you can still read these books. However one thing the show is valuable for, is developing the details of the first book. I will not be giving any specific spoilers for the show, but I will be speaking generally about it. Decide on your own if you want to keep reading.

The Light We Lost

4 min read

The Light We Lost has some very interesting concepts and themes. I chose this book because it is based on the most historical event of my life, September 11, 2001. I am fascinated with 9⁄11 because I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I found out about those planes on that day. I was in sixth grade, and I was in the school library because it was school picture day.

The Nobodies

Have you ever read a book that just pulls you into its universe? The characters become your friends and your family. You cannot stand for it to end as if you can tell that the characters don’t want to lose you as the reader either. The Nobodies is that book for me. It is the first book that I have read this year that I was fully able to immerse myself in and become friends with the characters.

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

4 min read

“Book nerds are daredevils, as you know.” (pg. 46) After reading the synopsis of this book, I realized that the main character, Nina Hill, was correct with this sarcastic thought about remaining in her preferred genre for book club. The synopsis could not have described a more “me” character, other than the single and childless part. But I’m here to tell you that if I were both single and childless, I would be living the Nina Hill life and there would be books about me.

I’m fickle; that’s no surprise to anyone who really knows me. I change my mind as often as the wind changes directions, but I have never started a book thinking I did not enjoy it and then pushed through to finish with it in my top 5 favorite books ever. Have you ever experienced this phenomenon?
