TBR List #1

Hello Internet!

For those of you who are confused, TBR means To Be Read. These are the books I plan on (probably won’t get to) reading this month!

1. Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea!

I got this book for free somewhere about a year ago and never got around to reading it!

Here’s the summary on the back cover:

It’s the start of fifth grade for seven kids at Snow Hill School. There’s JESSICA, the new girl, smart and perceptive, who’s having a hard time fitting in; ALEXIA, a bully, your friend one second, your enemy the next; PETER, class prankster and troublemaker; LUKE, the brain; DANIELLE, who never stands up for herself; shy ANNA, whose home situation makes her an outcast; and JEFFERY, who hates school.

Only MR. TERUPTtheir new teacher, seems to know how to deal with them all. He makes the classroom a fun place, even if he doesn’t let them get away with much…until the snowy winter day when an accident changes everything–and everyone.

2. Someone Named Eva by Joan M. Wolf!

I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while, but I’ve never gotten around to it!

Summary:

“Remember who you are, Milada.”

Milada’s grandmother says these words on the night the Nazi soldiers come to their home in Czechoslovakia. But what do they mean? She is Milada, who lives with her mama and papa, her brother ans sister, and her beloved Babichka. Milada with the sun-kissed hair, eleven years old, fastest runner in her school. How could she ever forget?

Then the Nazis send Milada to a Lebensborn center in Poland, and Milada quickly discovers that holding on to her true identity will be the greatest struggle of her young life.

3. Gregor The Overlander by Suzanne Collins

I read the first chapter at one point but never got around to finishing the book! Also I loved The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, so I’m sure I will love this too!

Summary:

When eleven-year-old Gregor follows his little sister through a grate in the laundry room of their New York apartment  building, he hurtles into the dark Underland beneath the city. There, humans live uneasily beside giant spiders, bats cockroaches and rats– but the fragile peace is about to fall apart.

Gregor wants no part of a conflict. He just wants to find his way home. But when he discovers that a prophecy foretells a role for him in the Underland’s future, he realizes it might be the only way to solve the biggest mystery of his life. Little does he know his quest will change him — and the Underland — forever.

4. Holes by Louis Sachar!

I’ve seen the movie, it’s actually one of my favorites, but I’ve never gotten around to reading the book!

Summary:

Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnatses. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending all day, everyday, digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep. There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are an awful lot of holes.

 But what could be buried under a dried-up lake? Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment–and redemption.

5. Divergent by Veronica Roth!

Believe it or not I’ve never read the Divergent series!

Summary:

Dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

6. Order of The Phoenix by J.K. Rowling (AGAIN)

IMG_0258

 I’m currently re-reading the Harry Potter series and The Order of the Phoenix is the 5th book and also my favorite!

*DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU HAVE READ THE PREVIOUS 4 BOOKS IN THE SERIES*

Summary:

There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it’s haunting Harry Potter’s dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror?

Harry has a lot on his mind for this, his fifth year at Hogwarts a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a big surprise on the Gryffindor Quidditch team; and the looming terror of the Ordinary Wizarding Level exams. But all these things pale next to the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named– a threat that neither the magical government nor the authorities at Hogwarts can stop.

As the grasp of darkness tightens, Harry must discover the true depth and strength of his friends, the importance of boundless loyalty, and the shocking price of unbearable sacrifice.

His fate depends on them all.
