The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

I read the first book in this series a while ago. I don’t know what it was, but I didn’t find it all the amazing. It has such high reviews and I was really excited to get into it, but maybe is was just too over-hyped? I do want to continue reading though, but I may have to read a summary of the first novel before I do. I barely remember anything!

The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

I feel like a lot of people probably put the Harry Potter series as their answer for this question. I mean, who doesn’t have the urge to watch/read a Harry Potter marathon around the Christmas season?

A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle

I remember reading this book as a kid in elementary school and thinking that it was the greatest thing I had ever read. I even did a project on it! I think it’s definitely time for a re-read soon!

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

Dark Places was one of those books that I just didn’t want to put down. Each chapter ended with a cliffhanger that made me need to continue reading right away! I remember reading this one while commuting to work, and when I got to my train stop I would get really depressed because that meant I had to stop reading!

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Everyone and their dog has read this series (except for me…oops) and I constantly see it everywhere that I go, especially now with the new TV series. I hope to read it soon, but I worry that I missed reading it during its peak.

Silent by Sara Alva

Silent was a book that I came across through the Goodreads recommendations page. I discovered that it was written by a lesser known author and that it was being sold for really cheap on the Kobo website. I also noticed how high the reviews were. Silent turned out to be one of the best LGBTQ+ themed books I have ever read and that still rings true today.

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

Yeah. Everything Everything was definitely over-hyped for me unfortunately. Honestly though, it started out really good and I was really enjoying it, but what was meant to be a twist ending really just pissed me off and felt like more of a cop-out. Sorry not sorry.

Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown

Ah yes. The Red Rising Trilogy. I really enjoyed the first half of the first novel, but then things started dragging. By the time I got to the second book, I was read to give up. There were too many characters and I found it really hard to follow the story, but then the ending pulled me right back in. I’m so glad that it did, because the third and final book was phenomenal.

We Are The Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson

When I received We Are The Ants, I had no idea what I was getting myself in to. The description talked about aliens and the end of the world and I just wasn’t feeling that. BUT THEN I started reading and oh my god. We Are The Ants is probably one of the best novels I have ever read and I was not expecting it. It was absolutely beautiful.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I love the idea of space and stories that take place there. I personally would be too terrified to ever actually venture into space though, therefore reading about it definitely makes me feel like I can go there without actually going there.

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

I don’t know what it is about A Clockwork Orange that I like so much. I mean, it’s dark and disturbing and it generally takes a while to get a grasp of the nadsat slang used withing, but the story itself is quite unique and wonderful. I also love the film…which might sound a little strange to some.
