The April break is fast approaching so why not borrow a few books to read over the holiday?
Grimm Tales for Young and Old
Goodreads rating: 4.1
The Grimm fairy tales are a staple diet for both young and old. Who hasn’t enjoyed these stories at least once in their life? In this version, Pullman rewrites fifty of HIS favourite Grimm tales in his wonderful and unique style.
The original Grimm tales are VERY different from the cute Disney films. You’re in for a gritty and, at times, horrifying treat.
History Is All You Left Me
Goodreads rating: 4.13
Griffin Jennings’ life falls apart when his best friend and first love, Theo, suddenly dies (I won’t tell you how–read the book and do NOT read the blurb of the book because it has spoilers). In addition to all that grief, his OCD is controlling his life and he barely understands his own feelings.
If you love young adult fiction, then you MUST read this book because Adam Silvera is really making a name for himself within the genre. Personally, I didn’t enjoy this book much because the plot moves at a snail’s pace and I’m not a fan of romance. But if you love those two things, this book is waiting for you in the KIS library!
Goodreads rating: 4.36
It’s hard to summarise The Godfather. It’s a portrayal of the criminal underworld and the story of the Corleone family as they experience tragedy after tragedy. That’s the best I can do. But the book is REALLY good although more suitable for older readers.
The Godfather is an iconic book and if you do end up reading it, you absolutely MUST have a quote-fest with someone.
