Recommended Books

Welcome to my recommendations page!

The meaning of this page is to shine a bit more light on (mostly) new Young Adult books that I think deserve more attention. I’m not going to put any obvious books on her by huge authors (like Laini Taylor and Sarah J. Maas) but you can always ask me for more recs if you want!

I try to update this page every few months to keep it interesting! The version below is the one from August 2018, if you read this and it’s been ages since I updated it, feel free to give me a virtual slap!

Happy reading!

Grace and Fury – Tracy Banghart

This book is about two sisters who live in a world where women are worth nothing. They aren’t allowed to do the most basic things, they aren’t even allowed to learn to read. Serina has been groomed her whole life to become a Grace for the heir to the throne. Her sister, Nomi,  was supposed to be her handmaiden. But everything comes tumbling down for the sisters…

Why you should read this book:

It’s a classic Young Adult book, but it has some crazy plot twists that really make this a must read. The character development in this book is also of the charts. An amazing book that you’ll probably finish in one day!

You can read my entire review, here.

Ignite the Stars – Maura Milan

Outlaw Ia Cocha is feared in the entire universe, until she gets caught and sent to a military academy. Of course her main priority becomes escaping as soon as possible.

Why you should read this book:

I’m not easily wowed by YA sci-fi books and the fact that this book was a pretty good one is reason enough for me to put in on my recommendations list. I’m sure that if you normally like young adult books that are set in space, you will also like this one. 

Sadie – Courtney Summers

This gripping story about Sadie, a 19 year old girl who struggles with the loss of her sister, Mattie, who was murdered. this book tells her story after she goes after Mattie’s killer. The way this story is told is very unique because it’s partly told in a radio show. It’s also very emotional and it makes you think about a lot of things.

Why you should read this book:

It’s probably going to be one of the best Young Adult mystery novels of the year, and if you are a mystery lover this is a must read for sure. If you aren’t the biggest fan of mystery normally (like me), you should give it a chance though.

Select – Marit Weisenberg

This book is about Julia. She, and the people she lives with come from a race of highly-evolved humans. She has to keep this a secret to the rest of the world even if her life gets turned upside down when she needs to go to a normal everyday high school.

Why you should read this book:

The second book in this series will be released in October (or it already has been released, it depends on when you read this) so it’s the perfect time to read this book. I already read the second book, Select Few, and I can assure you that this series is really good!
