1. Time travel stories
I usually don’t like time travel stories, but it works here, with a nice mix of history and cultural touches.
I have tried to read Manga, but often I didn’t like them. Except these:
The Secret World of Arrietty is actually a Film Comic Adaptation, I didn’t even know such a thing existed. This story is cute, and the artwork is just stunning!
I was surprised to love Orange, because it’s basically a teenage love story, but the art is well done (essential for me), and the plot is actually intriguing and original. I quickly devoured the two thick volumes of it.
4. Ghost stories
I about never read ghost stories, but I won this book for somebody else. Before giving it to the person, I opened it, and devoured it! I was really surprised to enjoy this Middle Grade ghost story. Very rich story!
I really don’t like his books, except this one, a beautiful memoir on his time in Paris.
6-7. Political books
Another genre I almost never read. But these were surprisingly very well done and interesting.
8-9. WWII and YA
Having read so much about WWII in my French curriculum and in novels, I now try to stay away form it. However, these 2 books were amazing, the first one for the quality and originality of the writing, the second for the content (WWII and YA, 2 categories I rarely read in).
Have you read any of these?
Any other good title you would recommend
in these categories?
