A book that blew your mind-
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie so completely blew my mind that I was texting my friends at 2 AM after finishing it in a state of total shock. The plot twist in this one is nothing short of brilliant, and it’s peak Poirot energy.
A book which gave you nightmares-
I don’t actually get nightmares from books that often but one time in middle school I had a nightmare that I was dying from the *fictional* plague in Cinder by Marissa Meyer. (This is not surprising because I have a healthy fear of creepy, terminal illnesses and I’m also one of those people who likes to go on Google and convince myself I am dying pretty much every day… not a good combo)
A book that made you think and reflect? (on existence, deeper meaning of life etc)-
I recently read Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson, and like most books on astrophysics, it made me have mini existential crisis #12903109123 of my life. I loved reading this book and devoured it in less than a day (it really is digestible for people in a hurry)
A book you rolled your eyes at-
I still liked this series, but I definitely rolled my eyes at the end of Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson when I realized the mystery was going to be dragged out for two more books! I definitely prefer standalone mysteries that wrap up in one book, but at least we got to spend lots of time with Stevie and friends.
A book that has been etched into your memory-
On a more serious note, I read Night by Elie Wiesel for school in freshman year and it disturbed me so deeply that I thought about it every day for months afterward. It is a Holocaust memoir and pretty much shattered whatever remained of my childhood innocence. I really think everyone should read this book.
- A book that made you laugh
- A book that made you cry
- A book that made you sleep with the lights on
- A book that changed the way you think/feel about something
- A book with a character you wanted to be friends with
… and anyone else who wants to do it!
