A Series I Own But Haven’t Read Yet.. #bookwormproblems

I seriously have a book buying/ book hoarding problem! But which bookworm doesn’t right??

I’ve decided to challenge myself this year by actually reading some of those beautiful covers sitting on my overflowing bookshelf, starting with some of the book series I own but haven’t started yet.

I think I’ll start slow and choose one a month with the help of my book jar.

Have you read any of these? Do you have a fave from this pile?

Book Jar Pick: Wonder by R.J Palacio #wonder #middlegradebooks

I wanted to try something different. The last month was an epic fail in terms of sticking to my TBR choices. But I like to be positive! After all, it’s almost a new year which calls for a new plan!

I’ve decided to start a book jar to help me choose my next read..

Genre: Middle Grade

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2

Kinder than is necessary. Because it’s not enough to be kind. One should be kinder than needed.

The words that come to mind when describing this book is: Inspiring & emotional.

This book broke my heart in so many ways, but in a good way! You can’t help but love Auggie. ❤

The Characters..

This story has multiple POV’s, but is mainly told through August’s eyes. I loved reading what was going through some of the characters’ minds and their feelings towards Auggie.

I really hated Julian. I seriously wanted to beat the crap outta him! His parents pissed me off too! It was the prime example of how fake and awful people can be.

Aside from Auggie, I loved Summer.  She didn’t care what people thought and her intentions were genuine (a rare trait).

I highly recommend reading this one if you haven’t already!
