So I decided to start a new segment called “Sunday Reads”. Just to talk about what (and if) I’m reading on this free day.

So this Sunday I’m not reading much (Not like I’ve been reading a lot al week, or last month. Ugh reading slump), but I am reading some.
Let’s go!

~Review: Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J. K. Rowling~

★★★★★/★★★★★

Chocolate frogs, flying brooms, talking paintings and a chosen one.
The perfect setting.
This is a magical world I wish I discovered sooner.

Summary:IMG_20150803_202517 (2)

Harry Potter thinks he is an ordinary boy. He lives with his Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and cousin Dudley, who are mean to him and make him sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. (Dudley, however, has two bedrooms, one to sleep in and one for all his toys and games.) Then Harry starts receiving mysterious letters and his life is
changed forever. He is whisked away by a beetle-eyed giant of a man and enrolled at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The reason: Harry Potter is a wizard! The first book in the “Harry Potter” series makes the perfect introduction to the world of Hogwarts.

~Review: The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy by Sam Maggs~

★★★★☆/★★★★★

I’m the Doctor, not a companion; Buffy, not Bella; nobody’s sidekick, love interest, or token female. I’m driving this ship. I’m a fangirl, a feminist, and a force to be reckoned with.
The perfect book for any geek, fangirl and feminist.

~Review: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell~

★★★★★ ★★

After reading and absolutely loving Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl I just had to get Eleanor & Park.IMG_20150126_191859

Summary:

Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.

Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.

Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.

Set over the course of one school year, this is thestory of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.
