Eliza and her Monsters

By Francesca Zappia
385 pages

The feels. Oh my, the feels. The protagonist, Eliza, has issues. Anxiety etc. Her issues feel so real and relatable and understandable -

This book was just so good. I can't even articulate. I was almost late to work this morning because I just wanted to keep reading it.

The Martian

By Andy Weir
369 pages

I was interested to read this because I saw the movie on a plane and really enjoyed it. From what I remember, the movie is pretty close to the book.

The weird part is that even though I knew what was going to happen, there was still a lot of page turning suspense for me.

I liked to book a lot!

An Ember in the Ashes

By Sabaa Tahir
446 pages

I've heard a lot of hype about this book, but to be honest it took a little while for me to get into it.

The plot is interesting, the worldbuilding is pretty solid, and the characters are likeable.

I read it because I was considering it for incorporating into my curriculum next year. I won't, but I am glad to have read it.
