My Hero Academia

by Kohei Horikoshi

My hero academia

This book is about 14 year old Izuku Midoriya who just wants to have a superpower known as a quirk. He was born without one and its impossible to get one. That doesn't stop him though. Eventually he meets All Might, Deku's idol, who offers him his quirk and a shot at being a hero.

My Hero Academia is a good book because it shows how if you try you can become anything. It's also wonderful book about superheroes.

I would totally recommend this book to anyone who loves superheroes or has watched the anime. Anyone who likes action stories would enjoy this too.

A girl that never shows interest in guys meets a boy and can't stop thinking about him. She feels like she has met him before and their first interaction is strange because he feels like he has met her too they just can't figure out from where. They begin to hangout and try to put the pieces of what they remember together to unfold the story of how they met.

The book was good it has a lot of hard topics that's discussed but handles it in a mature way. The book sheds light on what happens to people very often and how dark things can be.

I would recommend the book to those that like a love story but one that has a deeper meaning to it. I would look up what the topics the book discusses first because some topics might be too mature for some audiences.

Not Hungry

by Kate Karyus Quinn Not Hungry (YA Verse): 9781538382691: Karyus Quinn, Kate: Books

Jane is a high school girl struggling with the ins and outs of family, her sister's abusive relationship with Er-ick, and the greatest hardship of all-her eating disorder. Over the course of the story, her binge eating isn't taken serious by Toby, the guy next door, her classmates, and even her mother, who all either mock at it or misinterpret it as a strict diet. As she goes about her everyday life, readers get an insight to her thoughts surrounding her, her body image, and just how strong of a bond she has with her sister.

I don't normally read books with a poem structure, but I found this one pleasant and I interpreted the wild structure of the story like how June's thoughts are-dark. However, I do believe there was more room for exploration in June's character like how other issues besides her disorder had impacted her (like the mockery her or her sister Mae faced). Overall though, I enjoyed reading this book, as well as the moments she shared with her sister.

I'm not sure I would recommend this book to others. As mentioned previously, it discusses June's eating disorder as well as her self depreciating mindset so it can definitely be a heavy read at times.

Eleanor & Frank

by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park

Eleanor is the new girl with unruly red hair and wild outfits. Park is the boy at the back of the bus and has his nose always stuck in a comic. Slowly, they grow closer and exchange mixtapes with each other. As they talk, share interests, late night conversations, and comic book sharing, they soon fall in love.

It was such a heartfelt book!! The storytelling and imagery is just stunning. Only a few pages in, I immediately realized that I was invested in the characters and already wanted to draw them. To me, that's a sign of a captivating novel. I love how it's told in different perspectives, because you really get to know the characters intimately.

I'd recommend this book to older teens. There's lots of swearing and some pretty disturbing things written on Eleanor's books. Like, perverted stuff. It does cover some triggering topics, like ab*se. But, if you want a fast paced and romantic novel to read while sheltering in place, then you should definitely read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell!
