Yes we are stepping into Favorites Week! Today I'm going to talk about my favorite books because books are important. They give us information about the world doesn't exist or makes us see things from a perspective we never really saw from. 

These are just some of my favorite books.

The Book Thief
Just so you know this isn't in any order or anything. The Book Thief is a book I just finished yesterday. I couldn't wait to finish and I just love everything about it. It has gotten me more interested about war and history. 
Above is a picture of one of The Book Thief's books. They are many different kinds of covers but this was the nicest picture I could find.

I could go on and on about this book because it's just a very complicated book. For one it's a 550 plus paged book that has very detailed explanations on all the characters, setting and the affects of war in Nazi Germany. Unlike most books about the Holocaust, this is written from a more German perspective rather than a Jews perspective. I've read a couple of books dealing with that particular time in history. One of my favorites was The Devil's Arithmetic. The title itself just tells you that there is going to be death in the book. This was the first ever book I read about the Holocaust and I am not ashamed to say that I did cry. A lot of emotions came through. Anger and confusion was what carried throughout the book and even after I finished. It was something I can't put down. Not even today. After reading a couple more books, such as The Boy In The Stripped Pajamas, I knew that there really was more to the Holocaust than just being the victim of the devil. History books and other websites will tell you facts about the war but books are the only ones that will tell you how it literally felt like and if written good, which almost all are, you will really feel every ounce of pain the characters in the book felt. 

Stargirl
Now to a more happier note. I read this book when I was about 10 or 9. I've read the sequel to it just a couple of months ago. I don't know why I like it so much. Maybe it's because the character's name is Stargirl and I just absolutely love that name. Or maybe it's because it's talking about real life situations that everyone is bound to face with. Stargirl mainly talks about this girl being bullied for being different. Her different is the good kind of different. The different that the world needs more of but clearly the bullies don't know. I like how this book is real. That we can actually feel this and experience this no matter where you are. There is no set time for bullying to happen. It just happens when the wrong people come in.

The Narnia Chronicles
So I could've picked one of the books from this series but I really can't. Each one is amazingly written and I love the adventure aspect to it. When I first read this I was still about eight or nine. At that time I was really into everything adventure, new and exciting. Things that didn't happen in the real world could actually happen in books. I was just discovering that about then. I've loved books ever since I could read but understanding each word, the meaning behind each chapter and so on was developed as I started to read books that were more 'unreal'. I always like books that take you to another place that is no where near how yours and my life will ever turn out to be like.

That's basically the books that I like. I've read lots of books of different genres and of different meanings and themes and I can't wait to read more. I am constantly more and more interested to the background stories of the books I have read before and can't wait to discover some new ones. Comment if you have any book suggestions please! I'm a little stuck... 

Thanks!
