Happy Tuesday bookworms!
Lately, I’ve been in a much better head space and so much more happy even though I do get the occasional depressive episode but they don’t last as long as before. In celebration of that I decided to make a list of books that make me happy. Some of these may be books that I mention a lot (sorry!).
The Lunar Chronicles – Marissa Meyer | Okay, technically I haven’t finished it yet due to my reading slump, but I swear these books can make me laugh and cry and feel all sorts of emotions. Plus, I can spend hours looking at the Lunar Chronicles memes online.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – Lewis Carroll | I can read this over and over and never get tired of it. Although the films are very different, I can’t help but love them as much. There was a point where I would even read this to my niece while we were out in my backyard having some sort of tea party or right before her bedtime with her little brother.
Ready Player One – Ernest Cline | I have a slight obsession with the 80s even though I’m barely a 90s baby (1998 baby) and this book has so many 80s references it makes my heart happy. I felt myself fangirl every time Cline mentioned something I love. I’ve been told by my cousin that I would love the film, but after watching the first half hour I was a wee bit disappointed with the changes but I have to admit it was a little badass. (Someday I’ll get around to finishing it)
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli | Although there were parts where I was very pissed off but it was because of what happened and not the book itself. Simon is a special funny little bub that I must protect at all costs. And no, I haven’t seen the film adaptation yet but I will soon! Despite the differences, I heard it’s an amazing film.
The Upside of Unrequited – Becky Albertalli | Although I felt like I was reading a my own journal and felt sorry for ‘myself,’ I have to admit this book will also have a special place in my heart. I would LOVE LOVE to see a film adaptation to this book and once I get my hands on Leah on the Offbeat, I want to see that too. *I will have to say when I first read this I was doubtful I would ever have someone like Reid, but oh how the tables have tabled. (and yes that may be a reason why I’ve been much happier).
Everything Everything – Nicola Yoon | This book is sooooo adorable I love it so much. Olly and Maddie are my babies and I must protect them forever. After
reading devouring this book I watched the film and omg I had a book hangover for DAYS. As I’m writing this, I’m really tempted to reread it or rewatch the film… hmm..
That’s all folks! What books make you happy?
Until next time!
