The Night Circus
By: Erin Morgenstern

Ahhhhh!!! I love this book so much, it's one of my top 10 all time reading books. But I could say not everyone would love this book. It's a young adult, fantasy book. 

The story evolved around this very unique and mysterious circus. The night circus is a circus that only opened exactly the sun sets. It not just have a one tent but a lot more. A one big center tent with a huge clock at the top center of it and with those small tents around it. It traveled around the world for people to entertain but beyond those curtains and entertainment a duel has begun. A girl and a boy that is destined to fight each other. They have trained since they are kids just to get prepare for their duel.  Unbeknown with how the game work but things started to be on chaos once their hearts has met.

By Angie thomas

The hate u give is a contemporary book and like children of blood and bone it is also a book that is written inspired by the real lives of black men.

She is now struggling to talk and stand for his justice and for all the abusement they have receive just because of the mere fact that they are black people. Khalil who is unarmed was mercily shot by a white police officer who shamelessly turn the story upside down and turn khalil a bad guy. This book talks a lot of important things such as racist and brutal killings. It is a must read.

The perks of being a wallflower
      By: Stephen Chbosky

First of all I don't have the physical book of this, I only borrowed the book from a friend. The perks of being a wallflower is a YA fiction books. It's a good very good read. 

The writing style of this book is in a letter style by Charlie which is addressed to the readers. The story is all about the Charlie's whole school year and all his experiences and things that had happen to him. Charlie is a late bloomer who has a very good heart and innocent mind. He had meet new friends when his one and only bestfriend Michael died. Now that his new friends introduce her to the real world he had learn a bunch of things that he doesn't even know exist so all in all it's just about his high school days. It's an easy read. 

 “Things change, friends leave. And life doesn't stop for anybody.”  

And those are all the 7 books that I have read this month and Yey! I have achieved my goal to read 5 books. Maybe it's because all the books are good and I just can't stop reading. Anyways that's all for my monthly book wrap up. Adios.
