Book lovers will know that when we read we can get lost in the stories. We can get sucked into the worlds of books and forget all about reality and the world around us. And this is great, it’s one of the best things about reading but it’s not very helpful when we are on public transport.
Or in my case on buses and trains, there are a few problems with reading in public. ONE being that our hands are full with a book therefore we have no spare hands to hold onto anything when the bus brakes- lead’s to a lot of falling on a bus. TWO being the nearly missing your stop because you were too engrossed in your book to notice where you were. And THREE is that old classic- completely forgetting you are in public and letting go of your emotions.
There are many different kinds of books that evoke many different reactions in readers. The big three are tears, laughter and anger. All are probably not the best to be expressed in public, it makes for very strange looks. So here are 10 books that are best left to be read in private.
ONE) The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
TWO) If I Stay by Gayle Forman
THREE) Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
FOUR) The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
FIVE) The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips by Michael Morpurgo
SIX) Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
SEVEN) Of Triton by Anna Banks
EIGHT) Allegiant by Veronica Roth
NINE) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling
TEN) The Narrowboat Girl by Annie Murray
