I love books. I cannot lie about it.
I spend all my money on books. I have bookshelves upon bookshelves of books. I always have a book at my side. I’ve really good books; I’ve also read terrible books.
So I compiled a list of books that I-and you- can’t live without reading.
The Lunar Chronicles by Merissa Meyer
I love this book series. The characters, the setting, the plotline, it’s all amazing. 10 out of 10 recommend.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
If my friend had never prompted me to read this book, I’d never have written a quote from the book on my apron. This book is super good and won’t disappoint. Unless you get super attached to the characters.
Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger
Sure, I’m a 13 and 364-day year-old and am reading a book below my reading level, but who cares. I love this book series! Except for Fitz and Keefe. They’re annoying. But this book is amazing and right up my alley. Elves, superpowers and an evil organization… sounds like my utopia.
Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan
Did Percy Jackson tip me into the pit of Fangirl/Bookworm insanity? Probably.
But what I thought was a boring book turned into a book that I devoured in around 3 hours. The characters? Can I meet Nico? The setting? Where is the nearest plane? And most importantly, the shipping? Why do I have such high expectations?
Losing Brave by Bailee Madison and Stefne Miller
Don’t get me started on this book. Not only is it a thriller mystery with an unexpected twist, but it also has diversity and realistic characters. If this book isn’t on your TBR list, I don’t know where you have been living.
Unblemished by Sara Ella
All I have to say, read it right now. Drop everything you own- even if it’s a puppy- and go read the book. Cancel everything that you have to do- even if it’s a friends birthday (they’ll understand)- and read the book. Then read the next two. Then spend a day moaning over the ending of Unraveling and another silently crying into your pillow over Unbreakable.
Now you’re thinking, “Carlye, that isn’t a lot of books.” I’m aware, but if you read all the books I liked it could rival the number of pages in an A-Z encyclopedia. So you’ll have to settle for this.
Have a spectacular day and stay yourself!
