TOP 10: THE COMEDY WRITER

SCORE: 37.33/60

“What was special about this book is that it is not pretentious; it tells you the world as it is. Despite of the fact that some of the scenarios might not be that real, (a sexy neighbor and… okay I give up) its honesty is what will keep you reading until the end, and laughing alongside it. It will make you realize that life is just that, yes full of bad people, but nothing a good laugh could not cure.” (Posted June 28, 2015)

TOP 9: THE FINGERTIPS OF DUNCAN DORFMAN

SCORE: 41.00/60

“I like what Rebecca Stead (author of When You Reach Me), said about the book: “a magical journey of words spelled out and words that need to be said.” There is something deeply satisfying in reading this book, a word you could not pull out in a bag of letter tiles and place in a Scrabble board.” (Posted September 10, 2015)

TOP 5: THIS IS WHAT HAPPY LOOKS LIKE

SCORE: 46.00/60

“The story is kind of cliché, I know but what was special in this book is the depth of the writing, how the characters plunged in their thoughts which are surprisingly impressive to read, something readers could learn from and comprehend.” (Posted August 9, 2015)

TOP 3: THE GEOGRAPHY OF YOU AND ME

SCORE: 47.01/60

“…All books stands alone for various reasons, and is special on their own ways. This book is no different. While it could be dismissed as another YA novel displayed on the shelves, there is something this book offers that once you read it until the end, you will be thankful that you finished it through, and afterwards the story will be special in your eyes…” (Posted June 21, 2015)
