Here we are again with another FABULOUS Guest!! It’s Jody from thatonegirlwhoreads.com! She’s an amazing friend and was willing to answer my questions/scenarios! If you haven’t checked out my other TWYMMF posts, please do! I have the original posted, as well as Guest Michellislife’s post. During my TWYMMF posts, I give out scenarios and list books that would help you if you were feeling that way. Let’s begin and Thanks Again, Jody! 🙂
I’m really in the mood for something creepy! Anna Dressed in Blood, a book I feel doesn’t get enough hype although they are filming a movie about it so hopefully that will change. It’s about a boy who kills ghosts that have died in tragic ways and have the ability to kill people. It’s a very Supernatural type of story. Also, can’t help but add The Diviners by Libba Bray. It’s historical fiction and creepiness all balled into one. It had a unique cast of characters and the main bad guy will make you not want to read it at night, that’s for sure.
Have you read a string of disappointing books? Need something that will grab your attention? Read this: Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini, witches, multi-dimensions, magic, romance… What’s not to love. Do you want paranormal elements, but NOT creepy? Try this The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge, this is about a girl in the late 1900’s who’s family moves to an island because of a scandal in their hometown. She discovers a secret her father has been keeping about his work and the reason that the townspeople have it out for them. So fascinating, unique and imaginative.
Seeking something touching? Jody’s got it covered! Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. This follows an island bookstore owner through stages of his life, the joy and sorrow, trials and celebrations that he goes through with the people around him. It was kind of a slow read for me but still one that I loved so very much. It’s an amazing story.
Feeling lonely and need a book with a great cast of characters? This is for you… Ha, you know I can’t be given this topic without saying The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater… So now that I’ve said it, I’ll give you another one to check out too lol The Search for WondLa by Tony DiTerlizzi, this is an adorable middle grade trilogy following the adventure of Eva 9. She grows up in a small pod underground with her robot MUTHR. One day it gets attacked and destroyed and she basically has to go in search of other people. She meets a lot of aliens and some interesting people on her journey for the truth. Plus, the author illustrated it and he’s amazing so… Win, win 🙂
