Akash Malhotra is the poster child of a teenage...
The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel starts with what appears to be a scene of Vincent’s final moments after falling off a ship. The 5 star luxury Glass Hotel was in Caiette, a small and remote part of Vancouver Island. It was owned by super wealthy Jonathan Alkaitis and part of the story was about his Ponzi scheme but also was about his ‘wife’ Vincent who disappeared from the deck of the ship Neptune Cumberland.
Skeins by Richa Gupta is an eloquent story of how one group of rather mixed up women used the journey. They're able to dig deep into their past and their fears. The struggles along the trail gave them the strength and clarity to face who they really are and what they're capable of.
There are books that make you smile in love or simply be thankful for opening your eyes every morning even if your life is far from being perfect. I would rather read a dark and gripping story because they truly make you feel alive. When you’re happy you don’t think about every aspect of your life, just about that one thing that makes it all good. Milky Tea & Vodka by Rhea Sharma is a story of the unfairness of life; how things are cut short, how things are not what they seem, how things are stolen, changed, a path diverted in a blink.
What an outrageously crazy book Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty is – and I’m saying that in a good way. Hot tempered Mother’s who become too involved in their child’s disputes (and I’m talking about children aged 4-5yrs), to the point of seeking out revenge; threatening other parents, twisting the truth and even signing partitions to have a child expelled. It’s complete madness! But while it all may seem like madness, it’s really not far from the truth.
Normal People by Sally Rooney is about Marianne and Connell, their secret friendship, and their on and off again relationship. They are two young people drawn to each other who drift apart at times, but always end up coming back to each other throughout their lives.
Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott was such an endearing, engaging and a sweet Teens & YA novel featuring two teenage main characters, Stella and Will who are both patients in the hospital with Cystic Fibrosis that fall in love.
If you're looking for a cute, funny, heart-felt read this summer then The Unhoneymooners is definitely worth adding to your TBR's. It will have you laughing out loud while sitting on the beach, at the pool, or let's face it, inside in the AC all day.
The story of The Hating Game by Sally Thorne revolves around Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman, two executive assistants forced together when rival publishing companies merge, making their respective bosses co-CEOs.
