Hello everybody and welcome to my article today, since I began my summer vacation this year I didn’t have a clear goal or vision of what I’m going to do so I watched a video about goals and how to achieve them and one of the best ways to do it is to start with 90 days goals , I mean to have goals for 90 days , and that was perfect for me because my summer vacation ends in 90 days somehow , so that was my perfect plan , I started putting many goals it all was about self improvement and self care because I don’t always have time for them in the school days , also I had “MOVIES WISHLIST” “BOOKS WISHLIST” and “ANIME/SERIES WISHLIST” , like every time I came across any book or movie/anime/series that I like and don’t have time to do it I automatically put it there so I opened those lists and started , also my goal was to improve my English because I’m not a native English speaker so my wish lists was all in English ,like books in English even if it would be hard sometimes to understand / Anime translated English not Arabic/English series , also my favorite music is English , and then that way I’m improving it on my own way and that satisfied me somehow , but I didn’t delete my own mother language from my mind I read some books in Arabic but that was a little, and every time I finish a book/movie/anime/series I call that an achievement because I’m improving little by little with enjoyment, also when i do anything that makes me happy i consider it achievement because i did it to myself and basically that's what i want you to do , is to invest in yourself/do the things you love/improve yourself/learn something new in an enjoyable way..etc, so you can simply take what i have done as a recommendation.

1/ WITH ME :

It’s a series of 3 parts :

She is with me
Stay with me
Still with me

If you have a wattpad account you can read it I will link it here:

https://www.wattpad.com/story/31871058-she%27s-with-me
https://www.wattpad.com/story/88430342-stay-with-me
https://www.wattpad.com/story/128716730-still-with-me

So this story may seem traditional high school one at the beginning as I thought too , and since the first chapters I felt it will be boring but OMG it was AMAZING it turned not to be normal and traditional it’s about a girl who has been moving a lot and had been experience the new girl in school often Her name is Amelia and then she met Aidan in an awkward situation and she like hated him at first and then she met a group of friends who will be friends with Aidan’s group next , and the surprise is Amelia isn’t living a normal life as a teenager , through the chapters she will open up a little by little with Aidan and tell him her biggest secrets that may lead to her death , and Aidan do the same with her , when I started to get into it I read continuously without stopping as it was so good and it’s highly recommended guys all the 3 parts♡♡.

2/ WONDER : by R.J palacio

I know many of you may have heard about it or even read it but honestly it worth talking about it , first I didn’t like the fact that the main characters are children in fifth grade but when I thought about it I realized that we all need to read things like that I mean stories from children's perspectives , wonder isn’t a normal story about a little kid called Auggie because he was born with a deformed face , he has been through a lot of surgeries and for that he couldn’t go to school he was homeschooled until his parents decided it was time for him to go to school and that was at fifth grade , people though his face was scary always take a second look or even stare , through this book you will see how this little kid could handle all these things in the school or anywhere and you will discover a different meaning of being nice , I learned a lot from this book and I’m really grateful that I read it.

3/ AUGGIE&ME THREE WONDER STORIES :

Well well well actually when I finished the book I wanted to read more about Auggie and his life but this book isn’t a second part no it’s somehow the same story but from 3 other perspectives I mean 3 characters that was in Auggie’s life , I think you should read it after you finish wonder I know it’s not a second part as I said but it repeats some situations happened in “Wonder” but this time from other characters POV , it tells us that there’s always two sides of a story , a part of that book when I read it I almost cried it really affected me and it was about Julian’s grandmother story ( just in case you are going to read it 😅), anyways this book opened my eyes to how we shouldn’t judge people according to their looks too .

4/ TRUE BEAUTY :

This one is also online story as “With me” but it’s not on wattpad it’s one WEBTOON this app includes many stories but with photos , it’s like Manga but a colored one actually I don’t have WEBTOON on my phone I don’t read any other stories on it except for “TRUE BEAUTY” because my cousin recommended it for me , this story is about a girl who has an older sister and younger brother but she looks different from them , they are naturally beautiful but she isn’t like them , she experienced bad situations because of her look until she tried to get into make up world and eventually she became professional in it and she moved to a new school , the problem is she looks totally different when she put makeup like a whole another person , she is like living two lives one with her natural look and one with her makeup look and then she starts her life in the new school and became somehow the pretty popular girl and meet boys and then the real story starts and her truly goal is no one discover her real look , the story shows how if you lack the self-confidence you will not believe anyone who will compliment you like the girl in the story has a boy who know her real look and when he told her you are beautiful without makeup she didn't believe , so anyway it’s an interesting story one thing I didn’t tell you that the story is still on going 😂 actually I don’t like much the ongoing things but also it allows you think deeply in it till the next chapter releases , here’s the link if you want to check it.
