Top ten favorite books

Khristian Loveland, Reporter

People believe books are no longer relevant, and I disagree. Books hold educational value, such as themes that teach you life lessons. Personally, my favorite part of a book is the ability to keep, grow, and use creativity to envision the characters and events, allowing a person to keep that childish joy over specific things.

10. “Goosebumps” (My reason for Goosebumps at ten is that it just was a classic, and had been a big part of my introduction to horror.)

9. “Harry Potter” (Harry Potter was an amazing series, but my problem was more on how some of the characters influenced the series, yet that was only a limited number of characters that were just created for what was absolute ignorance.)

8. “Lord Of The Rings” (The Lord Of The Rings was good. The problem was that starting up, for me, it was difficult to enjoy at first.)

7. “Tokyo Ghoul:Re” (Tokyo Ghoul: Re is a light novel that wasn’t bad and continued off where the original left off, but the ending was too good to not enjoy.)

6. “Tokyo Ghoul” (Tokyo Ghoul is just an overwhelming read, or watch, it shows us just how quickly things can go wrong and change a person’s life, as well as how cruel people can be to those they cannot, or refuse to, understand.)

5. “Three Dark Crowns” (Three Dark Crowns was outstanding, it had major emotional impact, a romantic relationship that some would enjoy far more than others, and the characters were so complex when they had their time in the light. My only regret was being unprepared for how addicting, yet rarely stupidly dark, this series can be.)

4. “Percy Jackson” (Percy Jackson was a large series, and it included a lot of themes with some relatable experiences. The plot is a paved road you can rarely predict, and it shows how quickly a person can go from hero to the most hated with what can be incorrect reasoning.)

3. “The Kane Chronicles” (The Kane Chronicles was a series that shows just how skillful Rick Riordan is when it comes to using mythology in his books. The characters have such different perspectives on the world around them, and it truly makes that much of a difference in the overall plot, and each character has some sort of unique experience that helps mold them through the series.)

2. “Shadow House” (Shadow House was a masterpiece, being terrifying and unique, while being an appropriate book for children. Shadow House shows a different side to humanity, as well as ‘curses’ that truly makes you think about just what loss is and how despite loss, and people not always choosing to be saved, at least somebody will make it through their trauma and emotions.)

1. “Maze Runner” (The Maze Runner was indescribable in its own way. The series has a unique take on the outcomes of future technologies and just what an apocalypse is, while showing that people can forget just who they are, as well as the pain and trauma they may go through for someone who doesn’t exactly show how they really feel. The ending was a heartbreaking experience, showing that trauma can be partially healed all at the same time.)
