This week we are featuring Teen Ambassador Caroline!
What a delightfully mysterious photo! It is like a still out of a movie…I like it. What books are you loving right now, Caroline?
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline: I simply couldn’t put this book down. It’s a video game adventure with a pinch of romance, a dash of danger, and a healthy dose of 80s pop culture. As uneducated as I am in the realms of early video game trivia and 80s movies, I immediately became attached to Wade and his intriguing quest for Halliday’s egg. I loved everything about his journey from beginning to end, through all the twists and turns. Ready Player One certainly has something for everyone, whether you’re an avid gamer, an adventure enthusiast, or anyone reminiscing about the good old days.
Every Day by David Levithan: This book was recommended to me by a friend (Thank you, Maya!), and it was completely different from anything I had ever read. Every Day takes you through a few months in the life of A, a teenager who never stays in the same body for more than 24 hours. They are able to continue this day-to-day shift all of their life, until they fall in love with someone they can never be with in the same body. The premise of this book is so compelling, and I’m eager to read more of Levithan’s work in the future.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury: This book has made appreciate literature so much more. Bradbury had such a way with words; it’s no surprise Fahrenheit 451 has become a classic. It takes place in dystopian society where all creativity is frowned upon and even punished, much like Oceania in Orwell’s 1984. Similarly, the protagonist in both books is a man who defies these rules imposed by the government. This book has earned a permanent place on my shelf and in my heart.”
Great picks! There are all favorites of mine too 😀
