How To Be Bad

How To Be Bad

E.Lockhart, Lauren Myracle, Sarah Mlynowski

I got this book for Christmas, started it on Boxing Day, and finished it on Boxing Day. I found it interesting, fun and adventurous. It was easy to get into and i just couldn’t put it down.

The 3 girls the story is about, Jesse, Vicks, and Mel, are completely different. They might all work in the same place, and live in the same town, but that doesn’t mean anything.

“Jesse is as thoughtful as uptight, and keeping a secret she knows will change her life forever.”Read4Teens

“Vicks is a wild-child, seemingly o so confident, but also anxious about her absent boyfriend.”

“Mel is the new girl in town – the rich kid, needing to get over some of her fears and find some friends.” ( How To Be Bad- Blurb)

They are desperate to get out of Niceville, and see some different scenery. Through fights, arguments, alligator escapes and much more, these 3 girls find themselves coming together and sharing secrets. It’s a fairly easy read, containing fun, sassy female characters and a road trip, what else do you need.

This is a Summer Book List must-have. It’s funny, sad and makes you wish you were there with them.

If you decide to read this, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

The Fault in our Stars

My review of one of my favorite books!

Hazel Lancaster is a 16 year old cancer stricken teen. She has thyroid and has to carry an oxygen tank wherever she goes. Hazel sees herself in some ways as living on borrowed time, ever since the Miracle, when she barely survived a cancer crisis and continued to live with the help of drugs and her ever-present oxygen tank.

Augustus Waters is 17 year old whose osteosarcomas made him lose his leg. Augustus is also Isaacs’s friend.

Isaac is a cancer stricken teen from Hazel’s support group. He has eye cancer and has already lost one eye, and is already on his way to losing the other.

 

Hazel’s doctor suggests she goes to a support group, and her mum tells her it would be a good way to socialize and make more friends. This is where she meets Isaac. Isaac is really the only friend she makes at support group. One day Isaac brings a friend of his to support group.

Hazel and Augustus meet at support group. Augustus is Isaac’s friend. After support group, hazel and Augustus watched a movie together.Hazel tries to keep her distance from Augustus at first, but Augustus is able to find a way through Hazel’s walls.

Hazel starts to fall for Augustus, even though she doesn’t want to, as that will add another casualty to the list when she dies. Because she knows the way it will destroy her parents when she dies.

Slowly but surely, Augustus’ cancer starts to come back. When Augustus went in for an MRI, ‘it lit up like a Christmas tree’. Augustus is told he only has a short amount of time left. He doesn’t tell Hazel until he knows he has to. Amidst all this, they go on a trip to Amsterdam together.

Even though this book is sad, it is also full of joy and humour. It might make you cry, it will definitely make you laugh and you will be smiling throughout it all.

Hazel and Augustus are what some consider to be the perfect couple. Except they both have cancer.

 

They are like many of John Green’s characters, nearly impossibly perceptive, witty and full of humour.

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy the book as much as i did.
