I have started this series of articles where I recommend books based on a particular mood! These books are ranging from four to five stars and some of them are my favourites. I read some books recently and classified them based on my moods. Here are personally recommended books!
Read the first article of this series here>> Recommending books based on your mood!
This book is set in the year 1988. Abby and Gretchen are high school sophomores who have been best friends since fourth grade. After spending time in the pond in the woods, things are never the same. Gretchen starts acting weird. She becomes irritable, moody and changes a lot. Abby starts investigating after bad accidents occur. The two girls have to beat the devil with their strong friendship.
I have read paranormal fiction after a long time and this was a perfect read. The friendship between Gretchen and Abby bounded the whole story. The references from 1988 were added aptly. Listening to songs from the Spotify playlist given in the book was a great add on to the story. Give this book a read as it is filled with paranormal, friendship and 90’s nostalgic vibes!
Steal Like An Artist is about exploring and finding your own creative side. Having fun in your work and turning it into art is what this book conveys. Building up ideas, copying some with alterations makes us an artist. We need to keep moving ahead with our work without letting the criticism control us.
This book is a short read, but it taught me so much about being creative. Day by day, we are getting busy with our own work and are leaving the creative side. Steal Like An Artist will make you hold onto your inner creativity and will inspire you to be an artist. I don’t read much non-fiction, but this book is worth reading!
Long Way Down is a short book written in verse. It takes place in 60 seconds where a kid has to decide whether he will murder the guy who killed his brother. The elevator will stop at each floor and the people connected to the kid will give him a larger view of the story.
This book is a powerful read. It moved me so much because the kid is taking revenge for his loved ones and his voice. It was raw and beautifully written that will hit the bull’s eye.
Stevie Bell receives a message from the owner of The Camp Sunny Pines formerly known as Camp Wonder Falls. In 1978, four camp counsellors were killed brutally in the woods and left in a box. Jumping to the present, the owner of the camp wants Stevie to work on a true-crime podcast with him on the Box In The Woods case. Stevie comes to the camp with her friends, but evil has returned to the town again and this time Stevie has to solve the case to make out alive…
This book is grittier and in-depth in the case this time. I am in awe after reading the ending, so precise didn’t leave any loose ends. The best part is that there are chapters that talk about the past, where the murder is happening and then we jump back to the present, where Stevie is trying to solve the case. Things are continuously happening in this book, so it was not boring at all! I love the mysterious writing, highly recommended!
