It’s Tuesday, so that means it’s time for The Broke and the Bookish TTT!
August 30: Back To School Freebie – anything “back to school” related. I went for “Where the protagonist goes to (some sort of) school”, which turned into a top 7:
- Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Rowell’s books really appeal to me, which is why there are – exceptionally – two books from the same author in this week’s list. This book works fan fiction into the story, which amused me.
- Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
This is a book I’d heard about for years before I managed to find it. And it’s good (but maybe not as good as I had hyped it up to after those years?)
- Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King
To be honest I don’t recall a great deal about this book, but my reading diary tells me I really liked it when I read it, so it clearly belongs in this post.
- To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
This book started a trilogy (?), and this was by far the best part of it. Can of course be read as a standalone book as well.
- Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
This is a book I enjoyed at the time, but which has stuck in my mind in the way most books don’t. I intend to revisit this book soon, to see if it’s as good as I remember.
- Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
I’m sure you all know this one, considering it’s now turned into a movie and all. (If anyone’s seen the movie, feel free to let me know if it’s terribly disappointing or worth seeing…)
- Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
This is a super sweet book about teenage love, that I really think everyone should read.
