Books For Break

Winter break means a multitude of things for students. Whether you plan on relaxing at home or travelling somewhere distant, they both entail an abundance of free time. What better way could there be to spend that time than reading a book series?
The ‘Mara Dyer’ trilogy, by Michelle Hodkin, is a fantastic series to read when you find yourself with too much free time. It follows the life of Mara Dyer, a teenage girl who discovers that she has lethal powers. Mara’s romantic interest, Noah Shaw explores some of his own personal struggles, realizing that he and Mara are far more entwined than they may think. The series is an intriguing combination of science fiction, fantasy, and romance, sure to keep one busy for the few weeks.
If you’re looking for an easier, less stressful read, then ‘Hector and the Search For Happiness’ by Francois Lelord is the way to go. This book was written simply, the narrator speaking with a nearly childlike naivety. ‘Hector and the Search For Happiness’ is about a psychiatrist who travelled around the world to try to find happiness. Francois Lelord has written many self help books as a way to reduce stress, this being one of them. If this book speaks to you, there is also a movie version available.
Last, but definitely not least is ‘The Vanishing Game’, by Kate Kae Myers. This book is a complicated mystery, definitely something requiring a lot of attention. The main character, Jocelyn, is looking for her twin brother, who was originally believed to be dead. He left a trail of clues to ultimately lead her to X, whatever that may be. With the help of an old childhood friend, Jocelyn is on her way to find what she thinks will be her brother.
Of course, these books could be entirely uninteresting to someone else. It’s up to the reader to find the perfect book to suit them. These are just giving a head start for the search to find a great book to spend time on.
