What I read this month July 2019

What I read (July 2019)| bookboy.com.auThe majority of the books on this list are books that I have re-read.

This month I was quite busy, as I was involved in a  production of the musical ‘Wicked’.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Simon is a relatively normal sixteen year old with a relatively normal life – that is until someone discovers his secret. Simon navigates sexuality, love, and friendship in this warm, funny book.

The Yearbook Committee by Sarah Ayoub

Five very different teenagers are forced into working together on the yearbook in this fantastic young adult book. I particularly like the changing perspectives of the novel, as it presents varied views on the plot and the characters themselves.

I last read this book when I was 13, and you can see my full review of it here.

The Bazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King

A collection of dark, sometimes twisted, stories from the master of horror, Stephen King. My favourite of the stories was ‘Mile 81′, which was originally released as an ebook in 2011.

Written by Book Boy

I'm a 15-year-old Aussie boy who loves to read. My favourite books include 'Jasper Jones', 'To Kill A Mockingbird' and 'The Lord Of The Rings'. My website contains reviews of books from junior fiction to YA novels and, now, adult reads as well. I only review books I like. My brother writes younger reviews for Book Boy as Book Boy Jr. My book reviews have appeared in The Sunday Telegraph, and on sites such as Children's Books Daily, Creative Kids Tales and Inside A Dog. I am a former member of the #LoveOzYA committee (2018).
