Opal
After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different…and I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Origin
Daemon will do anything to get Katy back. After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?

This week I would like to focus my attention on the following book:

scrabby-little-nobody


Goodreads | Bookdepository



Title:
 Scappy Little Nobody
Author: Anna Kendrick
Published: 2016
Length: 304 pages

What it’s about (synopsis via Goodreads):

A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect.

Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen starring in films like Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air, Twilight, and Into the Woods, Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird, and “10 percent defiant.”

At the ripe age of thirteen, she had already resolved to “keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. But here’s the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out.” In Scrappy Little Nobody, she invites readers inside her brain, sharing extraordinary and charmingly ordinary stories with candor and winningly wry observations.

With her razor-sharp wit, Anna recounts the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture as only she can—from her unusual path to the performing arts (Vanilla Ice and baggy neon pants may have played a role) to her double life as a middle-school student who also starred on Broadway to her initial “dating experiments” (including only liking boys who didn’t like her back) to reviewing a binder full of butt doubles to her struggle to live like an adult woman instead of a perpetual “man-child.”

Enter Anna’s world and follow her rise from “scrappy little nobody” to somebody who dazzles on the stage, the screen, and now the page—with an electric, singular voice, at once familiar and surprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious).

How I got it:
I bought it via a site called bol.com.

When I got it:
It just got in the mail a couple of days ago.

Why I want to read it:
I love Anna Kendrick, her writing a book gives me such joy. Besides that I am participating in a reading challenge. The goal for me is to read as many new genres as I can. Non-fiction is a new genre for me.

On the first day at his new school Leo Denton has one goal – to be invisible. Attracting the attention of the most beautiful girl in year eleven is definitely not part of that plan. 

When Leo stands up for David in a fight, an unlikely friendship forms. But things are about to get messy. Because at Eden Park School secrets have a funny habit of not staying secret for long …

When I got it:
This book has been on my shelves for ages. I can’t believe I haven’t picked it up yet.

Why I want to read it:
This is a diverse book and as I’ve told a couple of times I want to read more diversely. I don’t know much about being transgender and I want to learn more. I want to broaden my horizon and know more about the people that live in this world. It is said to include a whole spectrum of topics. Of course sexuality and gender but also bullying, family relationships, poverty and abandonment. That intrigues me because it can easily be to much. Is it in this book? Anyway for those of you who have already read it, would you recommend I pick it up soon?

Why I want to read it:

This week I would like to focus my attention on the following book:

room


Goodreads | Bookdepository



Title:
Room
Author: Emma Donoghue
Published: 2010
Length: 321 pages

What it’s about (synopsis via Goodreads):
To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it’s where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits.

Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it’s not enough…not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, one that relies on her young son’s bravery and a lot of luck. What she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

Told entirely in the language of the energetic, pragmatic five-year-old Jack, Room is a celebration of resilience and the limitless bond between parent and child, a brilliantly executed novel about what it means to journey from one world to another.

How I got it:
I bought it via a site called bol.com.

When I got it:
I honestly don’t know anymore. A while ago. This book as been on my shelves for quiet some time.

Why I want to read it:
First of all, doesn’t the synopsis not draw you in immediately? It did for me. There’s something so fascinating about the synopsis. I can’t really explain it. Perhaps is the fact that it gives me the creeps, although I don’t know why. Not only the synopsis is intriguing, also the fact that it’s written from the point of view of a five-year old intrigues me. Second, I heard so many great things about this book. Al lot of either book bloggers or book tubers that I trust have given this book a five star rating. Third, there’s a movie already out and I wanna see it. Before I see the movie though I have got to read the book!

Dead girl walking”, the boys say in the halls.

When I got it:
A couple of weeks ago. It was one of my last book buys of the year 2016.

Why I want to read it:
It was a book that immediately peaked my interest. I myself have had anorexia and it’s nice to relate to a book. Other then that i want to read more diversely and reading about mental illness does just that.
