My Name in Books Tag

img_2766-1Today class was cancelled and I wanted to use this time to write a blog post. But I had no clue what to write about, so I googled book tags and this one seemed fun. rather than just spelling my name I thought that I would explain why I love these books, then I realized that each one of these is special to me in some way. Without further ado let’s get into this tag!

A: Around the World in 80 Days -Jules Verne

A classic, I read this in a book club when I was around 8 years old and looooved it! It’s full of adventure and when I went back to read it later I realized how well written the prose is.

K: Kira-Kira -Cynthia Kadohata

My very first blog post was a book review of this book, you can check it out here. This book gave me an irreplaceable look at Japanese-American culture and experiences in a way that I never thought about before.

I: If you Give a Mouse a Cookie -Laura Numeroff

These picture books are timeless, I still love them. I think this is also one of the books my mom used to teach me how to read.

L: Life in Motion -Misty Copeland

One of my favorite autobiographies ever! I sped through this book in les than 24 hours because it was that amazing. Misty Copeland is such an inspiration and this book is a must read.

A: Anne of Green Gables -L.M. Montgomery

Another classic that I really enjoyed reading. Anne is such an infectious character and the books never bored me.

H: Hush -Jacqueline Woodson

Jacqueline Woo is one of my favorite authors and this book was so emotionally moving. She always does an amazing job of talking about huge issues in a personal way, with one character with whom the reader can relate. This book is no exception.

Stay fly,
