So my goal this winter is to read the following three books. Now recently it has been all audio books because I can listen to that while at the gym or in the car and I haven’t really been able to sit down and pick up a book so these are the followings books I want to read/listen to this winter:
- Girl Online by Zoe Sugg – now I have already been listening to this book for a few days now so I’m on a roll with finishing this book. This is the second book in Zoe’s Girl Online series and this is what this book is about: Penny joins her rock-star boyfriend on the road in Europe in this entertaining sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller, Girl Online, “a compelling and satisfying coming-of-age tale in the digital age” (Booklist) by the award-winning YouTube vlogger popularly known as Zella. When Noah invites Penny on his first-ever European tour, she can’t wait to spend the summer with her rock-god-tastic boyfriend. But, between Noah’s jam-packed schedule, less-than-welcoming band mates, and threatening messages from jealous fans, Penny wonders whether she’s really cut out for life on tour. She can’t help but miss her family, her best friend Elliot, and her blog, “Girl Online.” Can Penny learn to balance life and love on the road, or will she lose everything in pursuit of the perfect summer?
- Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – I love the idea of a new Harry Potter story and I love the idea of it being in script form so I can’t wait to read this and I hope it is a quick read because of the format this book is in. This is what this book about: The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later. Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016. It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – now you all have heard about this series and I have actually never read the whole series. Yes I do know what happens in the series but I do want to actually read these books from beginning to end so this is why it is on my list. If you don’t know what this book is about here it is: The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike. And strike it does. For in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockheart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls’ bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley’s younger sister, Ginny. But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone — or something — starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects…Harry Potter himself!
What is your winter reading list? what books should I read?
