Hello Everyone and welcome to the first Daily Reads post of August. I didn’t put one up last week as there was a July Wrap up and August TBR post put up instead which would focus on the books I planned on starting last week anyway. However as my birthday has just passed and I got some new books the August TBR may have changed slightly so let’s take a look at some of the books I plan on reading this week.
One of the new books I bought last week I am hoping to start and it is Landline by Rainbow Rowell. I was so excited to get my hands on this book as I loved Eleanor and Park and have been craving more of Rowell’s work ever since. Therefore I am hoping to get stuck into this book and it’s super quirky plot. Landline tells the story of Georgie and Neal who’s marriage is on the rocks. After telling Neal that she can’t go and visit his parents for Christmas she doesn’t expect him to leave without her but when Neal leaves with the two kids for the airport, Georgie wonders if this is it for their marriage. While Neal is away Georgie finds a way of communicating with Neal in the past and has the opportunity to fix their marriage yet she wonders if it would be better if their marriage never happened.
This plot just has Rainbow Rowell written all over it, conventions out the window, beautifully written and an investigation into relationships and the influences of the outside world. I can’t wait to start it.
The next book I’m hoping to read is The Death Cure by James Dashner. I have had this one on my TBR for some time now and I just want to get stuck into the first few pages. I love The Maze Runner series and no matter how much you think you know the plot or the characters, I am always left surprised, shocked and wanting more.
The Death Cure is the third book in The Maze Runner Series and picks up where the second book ended as the boys are now remembering their past. Thomas now knows he can’t trust Wicked and his future lies in the hands of the glader’s but with the biggest task yet lying ahead of them will any of the boys survive the death cure? It is just so exciting; fast paced and feeds my hunger of dystopian books. I need to start this one during the week or I think I will explode with excitement.
The third book I am hoping to start this week is Paper Towns, like The Death Cure it has constantly been pushed further down my TBR as my impatience has led me to other books. As it is a John Green book I am expecting no more than an epic, emotional and thought-provoking read. However I am trying my best not to have such high expectations for this book in case I am slightly disappointed or ruin the whole reading experience for myself. Although in saying this I have heard nothing but good things about this plot and can’t wait to read it.
Paper Towns tells the story of Margo Roth Spiegelman who has been loved from afar by Quentin Jacobsen. One night Margo jumps through Quentin’s window dressed mysteriously and urging him to join her in a bid for revenge. Following their all-nighter when Quentin gets to school he can’t find Margo anywhere only to learn that there are clues left for him which should eventually lead to Margo. As he gets closer he begins to question whether he really knows the woman who stole his heart.
Once again this books just sounds like a creation of John Green, hints at romance, a questionable relationship laced with emotions and mystery. I can’t wait to read it and delve into the world of Margo and Quentin.
So it looks like I’m planning on keeping myself busy this week and as this is the case I hope everyone has a great week. Keep checking back as I hope to have some reviews up this week and a Read-A-Thon post up in the next few days.
