it’s friday, and I wouldn’t miss a book friday here on the blog. Since it’s back to school week here on Teacup of Love, I thought it would be interesting to write about back to school books! Just something interesting to help relax between all the school drama.
I remember when I was in school, going back after the summer vacation was hard; I could no longer spend all my time reading whatever I wanted, but had to cope with boring textbooks. I always longed for saturdays when I could sit and just read for hours. Also…on school nights – having the time to read a chapter or two of an interesting book really helped me relax and unwind from schoolwork.
Today I’m giving you a list of 5 books I would personally love to read if I was going back to school this fall. Some I haven’t read, while others I’m very familiar with. I hope you can find some time to enjoy one of them (or all) in between classes or after a long day at school.
Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
Make sure you’re heading to the right kind of school this fall. When at St. Vladimir’s Academy, you get to train with vampires and experience some full-on vampire drama and action. This book series will definitely get you hooked and make you spend all your spare time reading!
Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley
This is a heartwarming book about Corrinne, who has to learn how to live on less…a lot less! Used to spend money in New York, she is sent to live with her grandparents in Texas when her father loses his job. This book is about how to deal with recession, how to make new friends, life-changing experiences and family. I highly recommend it!
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
If you’re ever going to read a classic – this is it! It has castles, romance, ghosts from the past, secrets, action and a lovely twist. You can brag about reading an old classic + become your english teacher’s favorite student this fall. And after finishing it, you can go see the movie!
The Hobbit or There and Back Again by J.R.R. Tolkien
If your schooldays are long and boring, why not escape into a whole different world? If you love the Shire, food, wizards, dwarfs and hobbits in general, you will ADORE this book. You follow Bilbo as he sets out on his big adventure…and yes, there’s a dragon in there somewhere.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
If you want something more serious, something historical and something “real”, then this book is definitely for you. It has a real twist to it narrator wise, as it is death himself who tells the story. The book is not so much about death as it is a story of day to day living during the world war 2. The book is said to change your ideas on how living during the world war 2 was like.
