Favorite Quotes and Review for Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Book #7 read in August
Review
Wonder is a story about family, friendship, love, growing up and many other wonderful things. And we discover all this feelings through August, a 10 year old boy who was born with a very rare birth defect that affects the way his face looks, in the book and through different narratives we start to make a mental image of what August face looks like but let me be clear, this is not the most important thing about the book.
 
We first enter August life when he’s about to start going to school for the first time (he was homeschooled by his mother). It’s really interesting reading about August’s first wxperiences at school, while reading I was reminded of my first days at school, and it’s true what it says in the book, everyone is nervous/excited on their first day but for August it wasn’t only his first day in 5th grade, it was his first day surrounded by other kids, who talk, stare and sadly avoid him.
 
As I said before Wonder is narrated by different characters all of them young, in the second part of the book we hear from Via, August sister where  I think R.J. did an amazing job capturing the dichotomy of her feeling towards August, one part wants to protect him, to be there for him, to be quite about her own problems because she thinks that they aren’t important compare to August’s, to pretend she doesn’t care that her parents don’t pay the same amount of attention to her as they pay August. But another part wants his parents to pay attention to her, to ask about her day, her worries, how she feels. She wants to talk about her bad day but she doesn’t because how can her bad days ever compare to one of August’s bad days? 
 
My favorite parts of the book are the ones that are narrated by August’s friends, for instance his friend Summer says:
 
“He’s just a kid. The weirdest – looking kid I’ve ever seen, yes. But just a kid.”
 
Or his friend Jack:
 
“I think the bravest thing I ever did was become friends with August”
 
As someone who has worked with kids with different educational needs (not August’s case) I can relate a lot to this book especially with this quote: 
 
“What’s cool about really little kids is that they don’t say stuff to try to hurt your feelings, even though sometimes they do say stuff that hurts your feelings. But they don’t actually know what they’re saying. Big kids, though: they know what they’re saying.”
 
Because that’s something that I’ve always said, kids can be cruel, very cruel to other kids and even adults but I do not think that kids are born that way, there comes an age in which what a kid does or says reflects on who his parents are and on how he lives his life at home.
 

Wonder is an amazing book and R.J. Palacio an amazing writer, she was able to capture so many important things in a book that ones you are reading it seems so short. The book is full of life lessons that I think we can all benefit from and I strongly believe this book should be and must be read by everyone.

Favorite Quotes and Review from Prodigy by Marie Lu
Book #6 read in August
Review
It’s been a few days since June and Day escaped LA and the Republic, they are now on the run and trying to seek the help of the Patriots.
 
The relationship between Day and June is very unconventional and even though Day has enough reasons to try and stay away from June he doesn’t and as we see early on in the book he confesses his love and support to her but unfortunately now that Day and June have found the Patriots they have other plans for them, very specific plans. Day must kill the new Elector and June must help him from within. 
 
What I really liked about this book is that it was really fast paced, we follow June and Day through their assignments, the obstacles that they encounter and also the reveal of secrets that they didn’t know existed. So their relationship is tested many times, they have to decide who to trust, if they trust themselves or if they trust other people around them, it’s easy to understand for instance why Day might not feel so inclined to trust June sometimes or to second guess her given their past but it’s also very obvious that he loves her and in his eyes she can do no wrong.
 

I have to say Day and June are one of my favorite book couples because I think that they are both on equal footing, usually we see one character being more “powerful” or “strong” than the other, be it the girl or the boy but in this book series both characters are strong, they both have assets that when you combine them you have the perfect combination for rebellion and new beginnings.

Favorite Quotes and Review from Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
Book #5 read in August
Review
From the first line I was hooked, something that always happens when is a Colleen Hoover book, by chapter two I was smiling so hard because I knew I was in for a treat. I love how Colleen can write it all (sometimes in the same book) and make it so organic and never forced.
In this book we meet Tate and Miles and the way they meet is rather unconventional, and for me since that first encounter Miles was a question mark I couldn’t figure him out, the way we meet him, the way he speaks to Tate at the beginning and then later on in the book, and also the chapter narrated by him were very mysterious, I mean it wasn’t until almost the end of the book that we actually know what happen to him and I’m so glad that we got to know him both ways. In his younger years and then as an adult and carrying what had happened in the past and I have to say both Miles are very swoon worthy.
When Miles and Tate start their “relationship” he only has two rules:
“Don’t ask about my past,” he says firmly. “And never expect a future.”
As their relationship progresses this two rules start to become blurry for Tate because she obviously wants to know more about him, about what troubles him and she wants to know the reason why he isn’t letting go and just be swept away by their new closeness, reading all this chapters and scenes is easy to see how Tate could have interpreted some of the things that Miles says as maybe him giving her hope for the future but the moment things start to get a little serious Miles starts to pull away.
For most part of the book the relationship goes back and forwards between the two of them and it was interesting to see how Miles without really knowing start to fall in love with her.
This book is narrated in such a unique way, it gives more insight into its characters especially Miles.

I can honestly say that Colleen’s books are the only ones that can pull at all my heartstrings and have me crying since their first chapters, I always look forward to her books and they never ever disappoint me.
