Warriors Book Series
by Erin Hunter


I chose to reread the first book because of nostalgia. Anyways, it revolves around the story of a house cat who stumbled into the wilderness. There, he would have to adapt to his environment and survive. Cool book, but doesn’t struck out to me now than before.
 
 


Night Elie Wiesel
by Elie Wiesel


Cool book. Story revolves around the experience of young Elie during the Holocaust and the challenges he endured along the way. A moment that struck me the most during the book was when his father died right in front of him. Poor boy must of had some trauma after that one. Would recommend to a friend.
 
 


The Boy Who Dared
by Susan Campbell Bartoletti


The historical fiction novel is about a boy named Helmuth Hubener (main character/protagonist) living in Nazi Germany during World War II who initially was silent and obedient to Nazi/Hitler's rule due to fear of punishment despite internally feeling furious that his country's national socialist ideologies took away the rightful freedoms of Germans, unreasonably blamed and attacked Jews for problems, as well as spread false information about Germany's involvement in the war to prevent rebellion. However, eventually, Helmuth grows courageous and brave to take a strong stand against the Nazi government and its oppressive laws by typewriting leaflets explaining the truths about the war while also criticizing the government for its cruel principles and spreading lies to cover up these truths from the German people. Moreover, Helmuth attains knowledge about what's really happening in the war to write these leaflets by secretly listening to foreign news channels that tell the truth or reality (for example BBC) on his shortwave radio and spreads these leaflets across the city he lives in with the help of his friends. Helmuth acknowledges the risks he's taking by opposing the government, yet he continues to do this to tell more Germans about the truth and to fight for what is truly right. In the end, Helmuth and his friends are caught by the Gestapo, but Helmuth takes all the responsibility and blame upon himself in the People's Court in Berlin to ensure that his friends are not sentenced to death while he's sentenced and executed on October 27, 1942. Lastly, I loved this novel, because of the new insight and perspective of a German boy who did not face complications like Jews since Helmuth was a Mormon yet he opposed the government, unlike most others who remained silent. Also, I loved this novel due to the courage and bravery of Helmuth to face death to save the lives of his friends which inspired or made me admire his character in the story. Therefore, the journey of the brave, courageous, and determined Helmuth who conveyed his thoughts and the truth to Germans about the Nazi government by opposing its oppression through his writing (leaflets) made me love this novel.
 
 


Verity
by Colleen Hoover


The story begins with a young girl and her mother who was battling cancer. Due to this scenario I believe that it would be a great novel if you are interested in character development and romance.
 
 


Monday's Not Coming
by Tiffany D Jackson


I really liked this book because of the suspense. I think the author did a good job at making you feel like you were also trying to figure out what happened the same way Claudia was. I also really liked the plot twist, as it was very unexpected. The only thing I didn’t like about the book was the way it jumped back and forth to different times, it made it kind of confusing. Overall, it was a pretty good book and I would recommend it to others.
 
 


Verity
by Colleen Hoover


Verity opens with author Lowen Ashleigh having a very bad morning. Her mother died the previous week after a year-long battle with colon cancer. Lowen had a difficult relationship with her. I believe this story is very good and Triggered a lot of emotions inside me.
 
 


Mans Search For Meaning
by Viktor Frankl


"Man's search for meaning" is a book that really brings readers to think about the value of life and what it all means. It follows the accounts of a man in a concentration camp who documents the horrors and trauma of the experience. The book is known for its psychological writing where the author employs a psychotherapeutic method, which involved identifying a purpose in life to feel positive about, and then immersively imagining that outcome.
 
 


Cruel Prince
by Holly Black


I personally loved this book as the plot had me on the edge of the seat. The main plot line is political, but it has a side plot of romance which makes the book even better. The world building in this book exceeded my expectations and it got me to feel like I was there with them. Overall, I would give this book four stars because it’s very good but it is a little slow at first.
 
 


Break With Charity
by Ann Rinaldi


A Break with Charity is a good book to read if your really interested in reading about Salem Witch trials. However the book is kind of dragged out at some parts, but otherwise it’s a really good book. My favorite thing about this book is how relatable the characters are for the readers.
 
 


Hunger
by Michael Grant


As a continuation of the Gone series, it doesn’t fail to bring up new mysteries while uncovering even more knowledge about the strange, twisted world they live in ever since the bubble was created. Hunger is only the second book and not only does it cover all stretches of imagination, but also a logical reality of food becoming a shortage when not originally rationed properly.
