Welcome back to the ABC Book Challenge! I’m getting closer to finishing this and I can’t wait till I do!

Memorable Books that Start with the Letter “O”:

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

I remember this being read to me and my classmates senior year by one of my teachers. It was a really sweet and positive message and though it is a children’s book I will always remember that moment.

Of Mice and Men

I read this book for school at some point and while I may not have loved it I did remember enjoying it. I remember having discussions on this book that were interesting.

Books I’d love to read Stating with the Letter “O”:

Our Chemical Hearts

“John Green meets Rainbow Rowell in this irresistible story of first love, broken hearts, and the golden seams that put them back together again.

 

Henry Page has never been in love. He fancies himself a hopeless romantic, but the slo-mo, heart palpitating, can’t-eat-can’t-sleep kind of love that he’s been hoping for just hasn’t been in the cards for him—at least not yet. Instead, he’s been happy to focus on his grades, on getting into a semi-decent college and finally becoming editor of his school newspaper. Then Grace Town walks into his first period class on the third Tuesday of senior year and he knows everything’s about to change.

 

Grace isn’t who Henry pictured as his dream girl—she walks with a cane, wears oversized boys’ clothes, and rarely seems to shower. But when Grace and Henry are both chosen to edit the school paper, he quickly finds himself falling for her. It’s obvious there’s something broken about Grace, but it seems to make her even more beautiful to Henry, and he wants nothing more than to help her put the pieces back together again. And yet, this isn’t your average story of boy meets girl. Krystal Sutherland’s brilliant debut is equal parts wit and heartbreak, a potent reminder of the bittersweet bliss that is first love.”

I’ve wanted to read this book for a while. I got the chance to purchase it pretty cheaply at Barnes and Noble a few weeks ago so hopefully I can get to read this book sometime soon.

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

““Long live the King” hailed Entertainment Weekly upon publication of Stephen King’s On Writing. Part memoir, part master class by one of the bestselling authors of all time, this superb volume is a revealing and practical view of the writer’s craft, comprising the basic tools of the trade every writer must have. King’s advice is grounded in his vivid memories from childhood through his emergence as a writer, from his struggling early career to his widely reported, near-fatal accident in 1999—and how the inextricable link between writing and living spurred his recovery. Brilliantly structured, friendly and inspiring, On Writing will empower and entertain everyone who reads it—fans, writers, and anyone who loves a great story well told.”

This book has literally been the one book I’ve been wanting to read and get my hands on for ages! I did have the chance to read it a few times, but the last time was a long story and it doesn’t feel right to touch it right now. But, one day I’ll purchase a copy of my own and read it then.

Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts down in the comments below.

-Till next time!

  1. Great post! I read the first two years ago. I don’t remember loving Mice and Men either, but I always distinctly remember when one of them kills a small animal on accident with his hands. Didn’t even know what he was doing.

    I had heard of On Writing before, but I haven’t seen any reviews. I didn’t know whether it’d be a good book to check out.

      1. True. It might be seen as that, but I think that whole character is. For its time, that book was modern. Always should consider the time of the piece. (Even though I know some people won’t and will complain anyways, but that’s life.)
