Room – Emma Donoghue ✶✶✶✶✶

emma donoghue room

To five year old Jack Room is all he has ever known! It is where he was born and grew up, where he learns, reads, eats, sleeps and play with his mother. Room is home to Jack, but to his mother it is prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Jacks mother has had enough and devises a plan involving Jack to escape, but she does not expect it to work. This story is told entirely in the language of five year old Jack and highlights the limitless bond between a parent and child. This is their story of the journey from one world to another new, bigger world! With a heartwarming ending.

I awarded Room five stars as this has to be the best book I have read so far this year! I really did enjoy reading this story and cannot wait to watch the film! I would highly recommend you read this book if you haven’t already! It does start off slow but then you will be hooked, believe me. Room is an easy to read, fast paced outstanding thriller for all readers to enjoy. This story does not have chapters as it is split into four different parts. Some readers may not enjoy Room as it is written from the view of Jack, but do not let that put you off or you will miss out on this heartbreaking beautiful story. Room is the perfect story for readers who enjoy bestsellers, contemporary, suspense and thrillers, it would also make the perfect read to discuss if you are part of a book club. It is no wonder Room had been nominated for the 2010 booker prize, it really is an interesting read. Enjoy!

The Twilight Series – Stephanie Meyer ✶✶✶✶✶

twilight series books

#1 Twilight
#2 New Moon
#3 Eclipse
#4 Breaking Dawn

Now, I will not be providing a description of these stories as I am 100% sure you will all have heard about Twilight in some way! But to describe it in four words would be vampires, wolves, love and fights. It does not matter, if you have only watched the films or just read the books it is one of those you either love or hate. I absolutely loved both the books and the films and was (still am) a massive fan.

If you have not heard about this series (I doubt it, but just to be safe) you need to check them out! I always read the books before watching the films but whatever you prefer. I devoured this series and really enjoyed it! I also love all the films and still watch them occasionally. I did not find this series easy to read but well worth it for the amazing stories! I fell in love with all the characters and the films adapted from the books perfectly. This is the ideal series for readers who enjoy young adult, bestsellers, romance, fantasy and paranormal! Nothing has lived up to this vampire series yet. I will NEVER forget this series for the rest of my life, it is outstanding. Enjoy.
