Day 25: Favorite book you read in school
My freshman year of high school, I read To Kill a Mockingbird (by Harper Lee) and I absolutely loved it. I read ahead. I was obsessed with court cases and law at that stage of my life (I wanted to be a lawyer). This story is also about so much more than law and the judicial system. It teaches us a lesson; don’t judge someone by what others say about them. Rumors can be a 180 of the truth a lot of the time.
Day 26: A book that changed your opinion on something
Second Chance Summer (by Morgan Matson) changed my opinion on giving the past a second chance. By that I mean that if we have a second chance to make things right, we should do it. I was a firm believer of never touching the past, but in order to forgive and move on, sometimes we have to revisit the past.
Day 27: The most surprising plot twist/or ending
The ending of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green left me shocked and a mess. I never saw it coming. At all.
Day 28: Favorite Title
‘Forever’ is an overused word in a lot of YA love relationships. Forever is something we have come to expect in a lot of YA novels when it comes to the resolved love relationship. The book title, The Truth About Forever (by Sarah Dessen), brings to our attention that there is more to forever than we might think.
Day 29: A book everyone hated but you liked
Let It Snow by John Green/Maureen Johnson/Lauren Myracle
My love for this book is deep. Why? I don’t think I even understand. Actually, I do. I love that we have three authors interpreting a town in three different ways and characters are all seen differently yet somehow it all flows together and we end up with one cohesive book. I love it!
Day 30: Favorite Book
The book of Ruth from the Bible. The story in the book of Ruth is about redemption that transcends nationalities and unites everyone in God. It also has a love story. I always imagine how Boaz looked and just add thoughts of what he might have thought when he first saw Ruth. I would also love Noemi to be my mother in law. Such a sweet lady.
This concludes the 30 Day Book Challenge. Guys, its been fun! I really loved doing this (even though I know that I wasn’t exactly very consistent). I’ll try to do a different challenge soon or participate in a new feature soon!
