Meinung: Ein gelungener Abschluss einer tollen Reihe <3 Ach werde ich diese Reihe vermissen :'(



7. Wonder


August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Timesbestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. 

"Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. 


Meinung: Ein Buch, der etwas anderen Art. Wonder zeigt, dass es nicht wichtig ist, wie man aussieht, sondern wie man ist.

8. Everything Everything

Madeline Whittier is allergic to the outside world. So allergic, in fact, that she has never left the house in all of her seventeen years. But when Olly moves in next door, and wants to talk to Maddy, tiny holes start to appear in the protective bubble her mother has built around her. Olly writes his IM address on a piece of paper, shows it at her window, and suddenly, a door opens. Maddy is certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It's almost certainly going to be a disaster.



Meinung: Mein bisheriges Jahreshighlight. Madeline zeigt uns, dass es wichtig ist zu LEBEN <3 Denn wir haben nur dieses eine Leben und sollten etwas daraus machen <3



9. Geek Girl


"My name is Harriet Manners, and I am a geek." Harriet Manners knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear, a "jiffy" lasts 1/100th of a second, and the average person laughs 15 times per day. She knows that bats always turn left when exiting a cave and that peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite. But she doesn't know why nobody at school seems to like her. So when Harriet is spotted by a top model agent, she grabs the chance to reinvent herself. Even if it means stealing her best friend's dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of impossibly handsome model Nick. Even if it means lying to the people she loves. Veering from one couture disaster to the next with the help of her overly enthusiastic father and her uber-geeky stalker, Toby, Harriet begins to realise that the world of fashion doesn't seem to like her any more than the real world did. As her old life starts to fall apart, will Harriet be able to transform herself before she ruins everything? The award-winning debut by bestselling author Holly Smale.


Meinung: Eine nette Lektüre zum Entspannen. Nicht besonderes, aber nett zu lesen <3 




10. Apollos Trials: The Hidden Oracle :


How do you punish an immortal?
By making him human.
After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disoriented, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus's favour.
But Apollo has many enemies - gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.


Meinung: Als großer Fan von Rick Riordan und seiner Percy Jackson Reihe konnte ich es nicht abwarten seine Reihe um Apollo zu lesen und das Warten hat sich gelohnt. Dieses Buch hat alles, was wir von ihm gelohnt sind. Freundschaft, Witz und Abenteuer <3


11. Mondprinzessin:


Lynn bemerkt an ihrem Geburtstag, wie sich auf der Haut ihres Unterarms ein Sternenbild abzeichnet. Die einzelnen Punkte leuchten und Lynn versucht verzweifelt, sie zu verstecken. Als nicht nur die Sterne auf ihrem Arm, sondern auch sie selbst zu leuchten beginnt, ist nichts mehr, wie es war. Dunkle Schatten jagen sie die Wächter des Mondes. Und sie begegnet Juri, der ihr erzählt, sie sei eine Prinzessin kein Waisenkind. Trotz Lynns Unglauben folgt sie dem Mondkrieger und stellt sich ihren Verfolgern. Juri verliebt sich in Lynn, doch sie ist einem Prinzen bestimmt und nicht ihm...

Meinung: Eine wundervolle Geschichte voller Liebe und Magie <3


Ich bin mit meinem Lesemonat mehr als zufrieden :) Wie sieht es bei euch aus? <3
