Hello Book Lovers,
Over the last few weeks I’ve taken a couple trips to Goodwill and found some gems. The first one is E.B White’s Stuart little. I’m sure I have read this book in the past, but to be honest I don’t remember much about it. Stuart Little is a tale about a mouse, a mouse that is born to humans in the city of New York and goes on an adventure to track down one of his dearest friends.
A Series of Unfortunate Events, book nine, The Carnivorous Carnival by Lemony Snicket. To be honest guys, I have not a clue what this is about. I want to go into this not knowing much about this, so after I read this I will give you guys a good summary. I’m also not sure if i’m able to just jump right into this book, before I read the first book. I might have to take a trip to my local library and pick up the first books before I read this one.
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery. This story is about a little prince who lives on a planet, a planet that is the size of a house. He is alone on his planet and to be honest that’s all I know about this one. When I read it I can give you more of a summary of what this book is actually about.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K Rowling. I have to confess, I have only read books one and two. I know, I’m most likely the only one that hasn’t read them all, but I’m very excited to read them. Sadly, this is the 6th one and not the 3rd one, but I’m still very excited to have this one in my collection. I can’t really do a summary of this because I haven’t gone past the 2nd book, but I’m sure most of you know what this book is about.
The house on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros. I have heard this book mentioned a few times on BookTube and when I saw it on the shelves in Goodwill I had to buy it. This fiction story is about a young girl who grows up in the Latino neighborhoods in Chicago. I really want to read more diversely and also read books that a lot of people don’t mention a lot. I will also do a summary of this after I read it.
Lastly, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. This is a nonfiction story about a black woman who had her cells taken without her awareness by doctors. Her cells later became one of the most important break throughs for creating the polio vaccine. This looks like a very interesting book and I have heard a lot about this story from my university professors and just in general.
That wraps up my Goodwill book haul, thanks for stopping by. If you have any book suggestions please comment in the comments section.
Until Next Time,
