Everyone's favorite is back! It's time for this month's top five books. For December, I tried to pick some of my all-time favorites since it is the end of the year. Can anyone else believe that? It's almost 2020! With that in mind, these five books are ones you should check out before ringing in the new year!
#5: The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die by April Henry
This book is a fast read but it's filled with awesome writing. The story is based on a girl named Cady who starts off the book with amnesia and she's being held hostage in a cabin where one of her captors is getting ready to kill her. Cady escapes and spends the rest of the book trying to figure out who she is and why all of this is happening to her. The story takes a little time to really pick up but after the first few chapters, you'll never want to put it down.
#4: Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
Read this if you're really into history or if you like sad books with happy endings. It's based on a Jewish family from World War II who get separated and put into different concentration camps. The entire book is told from the daughter's perspective and it's a really cool view and adds to the story's emotional side. Definitely recommend!
#3: To All the Boy's I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
This one's just a feel-good book. It's cute and corny at the same time which is the perfect combination for a lazy weekend read if I do say so myself. The characters are sweet and the storyline is pretty calm so if you don't like really heavy material, this is probably a good choice for you.
#2: Into the Dim by Janet Taylor
I love this book! The storyline is so interesting and you'll never want to put it down. It's based on a family who've been able to time travel for generations. Hope, the main character, goes back in time to save her mother who's trapped in the twelfth century. She only has seventy-two hours to do so but any mistake she makes could alter the course of history. Throughout the novel, Hope is trying to figure out why a boy she meets is oddly familiar and that sets her on a course to discover the truth behind her own history.
#1: Ambush by James Patterson
I'm actually in the middle of this one right now but so far I'm enjoying it. I love any James Patterson novel so I have to include one when I can-even if I haven't read it all the way yet. There's something about his writing style that's refreshing. Every book of his is different. The plots, the characters, the setting, nothing is the same but they're all connected through the author. Personally, I find it really cool when someone can be in the same writing genre but can always produce different things. Some get in a rut of making each book the same story just with different names so when you find one that says away from that, it's really nice.
That's all for this month! I'll see you all in the new year for another edition of "Caroline's Book Club" that you can add to your shelf. Stay warm and happy holidays!
