Reading is one of the cheapest and satisfying hobbies I have had from a young age. These are some books I can’t forget about and think every girl should read (or boy).
I was introduced to this book at quite a young age because of my higher reading ability. I’ve been hooked since and got to study it at A Level too which I am thankful for because without it I would have miserably failed studying Shakespeare!
I have no religious faith but I like to go to church sometimes just to learn more about what people devote their lives to and be in a sociable environment. This book really touched me and I’ve not forgotten it at all, I think I read it in a day or two. When I finished I realised it was written based on a story in the Bible which has also made it very memorable – my first Christian novel read!
I only read this book because I liked the bold black hardcover copy I found in my local library and had heard of the author. So pleased I picked this wildcard because it’s a well written book with a strong storyline. I’ve also watched the film adaptation and was equally drawn in so I recommend to watch that too.
This book came into my life just think as I was leaving school, and I believe it was my first ‘grown- up’ book to read for pleasure. The film too is good but I do prefer the book as it leaves more imagination for the characters.
The Kite Runner
Amazing book. I felt emotionally stirred by this one, having studied it for A Level I’ve really got to understand it on so many new levels.
To Kill a Mockingbird
I studied this for my GCSES English coursework and I am so lucky to have had a great book to study and enjoy at the same time. This book is timeless and will always be a favourite of mine. The film is also heart touching so I recommend to watch that if you haven’t!
