I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite hobbies is reading. To me, reading is such an awesome way to relax, and if a book is good, it transports me into a brand new world of fun events and characters. If I get really invested in a book, I don’t mind reading for hours at a time!
However, despite my love for reading, I never shared my absolute favorite books from my collection with you all. So, that’s what I’ll be doing today!
P.S. The order of the books are completely random, and not according to which book that I enjoy the most. I love them all! As well, these are just a few of my many books, so while I love them, that does not mean that they are my favorite of all time: they are just a few of them!
- All Four Stars by Tara Dairman ✨
Synopsis: Gladys Gatsby has been cooking gourmet dishes since the age of seven, only her fast-food-loving parents have no idea! Now she’s eleven, and after a crème brûlée accident (just a small fire), Gladys is cut off from the kitchen (and her allowance). She’s devastated but soon finds just the right opportunity to pay her parents back when she’s mistakenly contacted to write a restaurant review for one of the largest newspapers in the world. But in order to meet her deadline and keep her dream job, Gladys must cook her way into the heart of her sixth-grade archenemy and sneak into New York City all while keeping her identity a secret! Easy as pie, right?
My Opinion: I really enjoyed this book a lot. Gladys is a really charming, determined, imaginative, and inspiring character. I loved how descriptive this book was when describing dishes that relate to different cultures. I also admire how it proves that anyone can be a chef, no matter their age.
2. Frozen II: Forest of Shadows by Kamilla Benko ✨
Synopsis: Anna of Arendelle wants nothing more than to be helpful to her older sister, Elsa. But as far as Anna can see, ever since Elsa’s coronation, her sister has been doing just fine without her. And now, Elsa will be setting sail for a grand tour of the world—leaving Anna behind. But a mysterious sickness strikes Arendelle, and Elsa’s tour is delayed, giving Anna the perfect opportunity to finally help. When Anna discovers a secret room in the castle and incants a magic spell, she hopes it will make her dream of curing the sickness come true. Instead, a more sinister dream comes to life. This thrilling original middle grade novel bridges the epic adventures of Frozen and Frozen 2.
My Opinion: To be honest, this is one of the best, and most detailed, novels that I have ever read. The author was able to make this book so detailed and descriptive, so it was hard to put down from the start. I love how it takes place between Frozen 1 and 2. Therefore, if you haven’t seen the second movie yet (like me), it really gives you a deeper understanding of Anna and Elsa’s past, and how that has affected them as adults.
3. Sisters by Raina Telgemeir ✨
Synopsis: Sisters is an autobiographical graphic novel written by Raina Telgemeier as a follow-up to her earlier graphic memoir Smile. It details a long summer road trip taken from San Francisco to Colorado by her family and explores the relationship between Raina and her younger sister, Amara.
My Opinion: I really enjoyed how family-oriented and relatable this book was. Sisters is the second addition to the Smile series, which are the true stories of the author when she was a teenager. I love how it shows the ups and downs of sisterhood, and even though they don’t always get along, Raina and Amara (the two sisters) were able to put their differences aside and show each other kindness, in the end.
