Boy Meets Depression~ Kevin Breel

boy meets depression This is a memoir of Kevin Breel’s complicated meeting with depression. Being raised in a hard home, going to cruel schools, with cruel students. This is the story of how one boy nearly hits rock bottom, and then drags himself off the ground and keeps going.

I read and finished this book in two days. But, it felt like longer. When I started reading i didn’t really know how it was going to end, and by the end everything was clear. Normally a book about true events, and depression is not really my thing, but this book caught my eye. I was very happy with the book, and will definitely read it again.

I’m a sophomore in high school, and I know how bad people can be. Lets just say that at one point or another, everyone sucks. People who say they have never bullied anyone, or mistreated anyone are either liars, or too naive to see they aren’t pure, innocent souls. I could really relate to the author, in ways that were actually kind of amazing.

If I can make a suggestion that whoever decides to read this, finish the book and then google the author. It made a whole lot of difference to me to see how he turned out and even what he looks like. For someone who hasn’t cried in a while, pick this book up.

The Vampire Academy Series~ Richelle Mead

All_the_VA_books  This is a six book series, about good vampire, evil vampires, and half vampires, and some other stuff.

Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a half human half vampire creature. Her best friend is Lissa Dragomir, A royal Moroi and the last Dragomir in her family. Two years ago, they ran away, to protect themselves from the danger coming their way.The Strigoi want her dead, to wipe out one of the twelve royal families. Now, they have been found, and are forced to  return to St. Vladimir’s Academy. As they slowly get back into life at the academy, Rose is now training with the ever constant, Dimitri. Dimitri Belikov, is an extremely well-known guardian, and also just happens to be extremely gorgeous, and forbidden to Rose. Meanwhile, people are targeting to hurt Lissa, and she can’t be left alone. But,  when she is she goes up to the top floor of the church. Here she finds peace, and Christian Ozera. He is an outcast, because his parents consciously became Strigoi, the though of immortality too strong. As they both try to get back into normal life, they are ulterior motives in the midst, and no one is safe.

This series was really good. All six books kept me completely intrigued, and now I’m reading the spin-off series bloodlines( definitely check out, especially if you love Adrian.) My favorite characters were Dimitri, Christian, and Adrian, though he doesn’t come in until book 2. Thinking up a book about vampires is pretty easy, but the author straight up created an entire world. I just finished the series about a week ago, and just started bloodlines which is in the point of view of Sydney Sage, who we meet later. When i finished it i was slightly disappointed about the endings for some of the character, but don’t be discouraged they are all in bloodlines.

  1. Vampire Academy
  2. Frostbite
  3. Shadow Kiss
  4. Blood Promise
  5. Spirit Bound
