The 5th Wave

Ok, so it has been  long time since I’ve been on but now it is another exciting book/movie review. YEY!!!!!!

Written by Rick Yancey this book has really opened me up to read different genres and the way the book was written really captivated me, however others think not it’s just my personal opinion.

The book is based around a girl called Cassie Sullivan as she tries to survive through a series of alien waves. She is trying to save her brother Sam when she meets Evan Walker an alien. It also tells the story of Ben Parish, Cassie’s high school crush. After meeting Sam, now renamed Nugget, Ben saves his life and gets promoted Private Zombie.

Anyway, a lot of things happen and Evan is supposedly dead.

I haven’t read the next book yet so no spoilers but I really can’t wait to read it. I fully recommend the book and you watch the movie but it’s not as good as the book.

Comment on whether you have read the book or not and who’s your favourite character, mine’s Cassie.

Me Before You

 

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.

Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.

What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.

 

Yes, I know this is a very old book. For Christmas I got the two books and the movie. (Aswell as many other books which I hope to do book reviews on aswell.)

I have recently finished it and WOW!  It’s a tremendously beautiful story with characters you automatically connect with. I loved it! I have literally dragged my friend’s to the libary and forced this book upon them  it was that good. The relationship between Lou and Will is one where you hate it but then you love it after time.It’s incredibly moving and well laid out. Jojo Moyes is a genius. It’s so moving and romantic, I just wanted to curl up on the sofa and dissapear away with them.
