My first TBR

This is my first TBR, or my first To-Be-Read list. I am excited to write about the newest books that I have saved-up. I will update you later with my review of each one. So, check out my TBR list below.

The Confessions of a High School Disaster: Freshman Year

Synopsis:

I am Chloe Snow, and my life is kiiiiind of a disaster.

  1. I’m a kissing virgin (so so so embarrassiing).
  2. My best friend, Hannah, is driving me insane.
  3. I think I’m in love with Mac Brody, senior football star, whose girlfriend is so beautiful she doesn’t even need eyeliner.
  4. My dad won’t stop asking if I’m okay.
  5. Oh, and my mom moved to Mexico to work on her novel. But it’s fine–she’ll be back soon. She said so.

Mom says the only thing sadder than remembering is forgetting, so I’m going to write down everything that happens to me in this diary. That way, even when I’m ninety, I’ll remember how awkward and exciting it is to be in high school.

How I feel about this book:

I feel excited to read this book. It sounds like something that I can relate to. The character seems honest, open, and sweet. This book also reminds me of the book, The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot. I can’t wait to read it.

Rosie Girl: A Novel

Synopsis:

Rule Number One: No questions after.

Rule Number Two: Never go alone.

Rule Number Three: Your money, you business.

But most important of all…

Never break the rules.

After Rosie’s father dies, suddenly, her life goes into a tailspin. Not only has she lost her only living parent, but she’s also left in the care of her emotionally abusive stepmom, Lucy, and Lucy’s dead-beat boyfriend, Judd, whose roaming eyes have been landing on Rosie all too often lately. Rosie’s long comfort is Mary, her best friend and protector, the one person who understands her in ways nobody else ever could.

A visceral, poignant tale of friendship, loyalty, and identity, Rosie Girl is an unforgettable debut that will leave you guessing till the very last page.

How I feel about this book:

This sounds like a good book. It seems like a play-off of the fairy-tale story named Cinderella. I hope that this book has a hopeful ending like the fairy-tale.

I’m curious about Rosie. I also want to learn more about her best friend, Mary. I hope the two of them overcome the obstacles that they face to win-the-day.

Tales From the Back Row: An Outsider’s View from Inside the Fashion Industry

Synopsis:

The Lowdown on High Fashion

Cosmopolitan.com editor, Amy O’Dell, knows what it’s really like to be a young woman working in the fashion industry. In Tales from the Back Row, Amy–funny and fearless–takes readers behind the stage of New York’s hottest fashion shows to meet the world’s most influential models, designers, celebrities, editors, and photographers.

But first, she has to push her way through the crowds outside, where we see the lengths people go to be noticed by the lurking paparazzi, and weave her way through the packed venue, from the very back row to the front. And as Amy climbs the ladder (with tips about how you can, too) she introduces an industry powered by larger-than-life characters: she meets the intimidating Anna Wintour and the surprisingly gracious Rachel Zoe, not mention the hilarious Chelsea Handler, and more.

How I feel about this book:

This memoir sounds exciting. I love to-learn about new things like the fashion industry. This memoir also reminds me of the book, The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger. I wonder if the main character, Amy O’Dell, also has horrifying stories about the fashion world like the main character in the book. I can’t wait to read this one.

Ones and Zeroes: A Mirador Novel

Synopsis:

Overworld. It’s more than just the world’s most popular eSport–for thousands of VR teams around the globe, Overworld is life. It means fame and fortune, or maybe it’s a ticket out of obscurity or poverty. If you have a connection to the internet and four friends to trust with your life, anything is possible.

Maris Carneseca is on the hunt for a mysterious hacker named Grendel when she receives world that her amateur Overworld team has been invited to Forward Motion, one of the most exclusive tournaments of the year. For Marisa, the could mean everything–a chance to finally go pro and to help her family, stuck in an LA neighborhood on the wrong side of the growing divide between the rich and the poor. But Forward Motion turns out to be more than it seems–rife with corruption, in-fighting and danger–and Marisa runs headlong into Alain Bensoussan, a beautiful, dangerous underground freedom fighter who reveals to her the darker side of the forces behind the tournament.

How I feel about this book:

This book sounds like an urban-dystopian book. That means that it is like The Hunger Games books, but it is set in a world with advanced technology. I am excited to read it. It reminds me of the book, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I wonder if this futuristic world will be as bleak as the world in Ready Player One. It sure sounds like it.

That’s it for my first TBR-list. I’m excited to start to read these novels. All four of them seem interesting and exciting in their own way. I will post a review of these books once I am done reading them.

I will see you in my next update.

Always with infinite love,
Selena London
