Back To School Book Style


Unfortunately, most schools have now started but worry not, we've tried to come up with a list of books to help ease you into the oh-so-many weeks of drowning under seas of homework! Ranging from the stress-relieving 'Princess Diaries' Series by Meg Cabot to the historical 'Of Mice and Men' by John Steinbeck
here it is:

She's just a New York City girl living with her artist mom...

News Flash: Dad is prince of Genovia. (So that's why a limo meets her at the airport!)

Downer: Dad can't have any more kids. (So no heir to the throne.)
Shock of the Century: Like it or not, Mia Thermopolis is prime princess material.
Mia must take princess lessons from her dreaded grandmére, the dowager princess of Genovia, who thinks Mia has a thing or two to learn before she steps up to the throne.
Well, her father can lecture her until he's royal-blue in the face about her princessly duty--no way is she moving to Genovia and leaving Manhattan behind. But what's a girl to do when her name is Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo?

If you're looking for a quick, funny, pick-me-up this is the book to read. To be honest I think my favourite out of the series is the last one where all the strings tie up together, stick it out through the series it's worth it!

After a horrible accident claims the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people's auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone's entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact to suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school — but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.

Damen is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He's the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head - wielding a magic so intense, it's as though he can peer straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she's left with more questions than answers. And she has no idea just who he really is - or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is that she's falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.

This book is probably one of our favourites, what can we say, we're a sucker for paranormal romances...

There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.

Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah. 

He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce – he goes out of his way to make that very clear. But she can’t let it go. 

Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, Luce has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret...even if it kills her.

It's a long read, not going to lie, but a great one all the same. Particularly, if you liked Embrace by Jessica Shirvington, definitely check this book out!

A young boy and girl meet by chance and fall instantly in love. 

But their families are bitter enemies, and in order to be together the two lovers must be prepared to risk everything. 

Set in a city torn apart by feuds, Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written early in the career of William Shakespeare about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families.

Most schools require their students to study at least one Shakespeare play, and what better one to read to familiarise yourself with Shakespeare's style than Romeo and Juliet??

They are an unlikely pair: George is "small and quick and dark of face"; Lennie, a man of tremendous size, has the mind of a young child. Yet they have formed a "family," clinging together in the face of loneliness and alienation.

Labourers in California's dusty vegetable fields, they hustle work when they can, living a hand-to-mouth existence. For George and Lennie have a plan: to own an acre of land and a shack they can call their own. 

When they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, the fulfilment of their dream seems to be within their grasp. But even George cannot guard Lennie from the provocations of a flirtatious woman, nor predict the consequences of Lennie's unswerving obedience to the things George taught him.

Generally a great all round book, not only does Steinbeck bring the historical American Depression to life, it's also a great book on the value of friendship. A small note though, the end will probably make you cry...
