I spend a lot of time here talking about my own books, but I thought today I'd spend some time talking about some of the books I love to read. Here's a list of some of my recent favorites:
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
These books are constantly at the top of the YA time travel chart with The Clay Lion so I decided to read them to find out why. All I can say is leave your sensibilities at the door and just dive in head first to this crazy world. So very good. Looking forward to book 3 next year!
Landline by Rainbow Rowell
I'm a huge fan of her YA stuff, but Landline is about an adult marriage and as a middle aged woman I could totally relate to so much of this book. Again, the supernatural "landline" connection to the past definitely spoke to me.
Matched by Ally Condie
Fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent Series will enjoy this book, with its own twist on the love triangle / dystopian world. Definitely worth a read.
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
I'm a huge John Green fan and I cried along with everyone else (and Hazel Grace) at the end of The Fault in Our Stars, but I especially enjoyed the male POV and that the main character grew by the end of the book.
Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
This is a long-time favorite and every time I reread it I love it even more. A perfect homage to what it means to be a teenager.
This is were you get to read about what's going on inside my head. I apologize in advance - the place is a wreck.
