Books, Books and more Books

So far this summer I have read quite a few books
So I'll give a little review of a couple 
Looking for Alaska by John Green
I really enjoyed this book, it had a very different sort of ending than you usually get in a book. Unfortunately someone carelessly spoiled the main part of the book for me by not putting a spoiler warning on their review. I would recommend it to teenagers +. 
I am planning on buying an Abundance of Catherines by John Green and ordering his new  book Papertowns from Amazon (which is part of a secret NerdFighter plan as a birthday present to John Green of getting PaperTowns onto the New York best seller list for his birthday). 

Breaking Dawn by Stepheny Meyer *Spoiler Alert*
Ok, I  would usually not like this kind of book and sometimes I didn't but even the book had hundreds of plot holes I didn't care because I have become attached to the characters and the whole story line and basically just want to know what happens! Every time a new problem is created there is a ridiculous solution so that there is a happy ending for it. For instance Jacob and Nessie, Bella and her special power of self control (since when was self control one of Bella's strong human traits!? and how come she got two!), Alice just happening upon a half human/Vampire just in time to get back to the Vampire. I was looking forward to the battle, I think there should have been someone good who got killed as it might have jerked a tear from me. Normally in books I am crying all over the place but the only time I cried in Breaking Dawn was when I was really angry with Bella for being angry with Jacob for imprinting on Renesmee. And these were tears of anger! 
Well I suppose I am happy that Bella, Edward, Jacob and everyone got there happily ever afters but it was not a brilliant book. 

13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
An enjoyable read but I really don't have a lot to say about it. I mean it was good but not amazing. 

The Time Travellers Wife my Aurdrey Niffeneger 
This is one of my absolute favourite books now I loved it 5 stars. It was a very emotional and exiting book and I couldn't get my nose out of it for the first bit of my holiday. For the last quarter of the book I was crying my eyes out. It had a very beautiful and sad ending. 

If you love reading as well and need help finding books you would enjoy I recommend GoodReads a recommendation site for books, it's really good: Goodreads | get book recommendations from people you know
