The feeling you get when you open a new book, taking in the musty, papery smell, your eyes following the words as they dance across the page is indescribably marvelous. It happens every time I open a book. How do you feel when you open a book?
Here are some of my recommendations. These books are intriguing and I can't stop reading them.
A Series of Unfortunate Events
This series of stories by Lemony Snicket is quite mysterious, yet it's hard to put it down once you start reading. The series follow the lives of the Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus and Sunny. The adventures they encounter are unpredictable and fascinating, so make sure you try it. The books always have miserable endings, which is why I recommend it to people who loathe the usual 'happily ever after.'
This original story by Michael Morpurgo really touched me. It's about a young boy called Michael, who gets stranded on an island, only to find that a Japanese man called Kensuke lives there. They both get along as they learn to survive together. I don't want to ruin the ending for you, but it was an amazingly written story. Michael Morpurgo's other stories are some of my favourites too, like Mr. Skip and Kaspar the Prince of Cats.
The Star of Kazan
Eva Ibbotson's book was one that enjoyed reading the first time and loved reading again and again. The book describes the like of Annika, an foundling who lives in Vienna with servants Ellie and Sigrid who work for three professors. Annika has always dreamed about her mother, so when an aristocrat arrives on the doorstep and claims Annika as her daughter, she is overjoyed. But this book has quite an unexpected ending, and I think you should give it a try.
That's all for now, but if you know any interesting books, make sure to comment below!
