So I’ve done a decent amount of book tags recently so I thought that I’d change it up by recommending some of my favorite books! I’m going to recommend both contemporary books and series’s because why pick one! I do have reviews for almost all of these books up on my blog so I do link to them in case anyone is interested in reading more about a particular book. I also don’t mention anything by Cassandra Clare or Sarah J. Maas because I talk about them a lot and figured I should mention some other books.
The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
I’ve talked about this book a decent amount on this blog and it is officially my all time favorite contemporary novel so there was no way I couldn’t include it on this list. I really would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read contemporary books and isn’t really looking for anything fantasy related. If you want to read a really long review where I basically just praise this book then click here!
Scythe by Neal Shusterman
This contemporary book had a really interesting premise and I really haven’t read anything like it. This is one of the reasons I tend to recommend this book to people because it’s just such a different book compared to a large portion of the YA genre. I really enjoyed reading about a society where no one naturally died and there is a group of people that have the ability to kill someone. The way Shusterman goes about the idea of having certain people in charge of managing the population was incredibly interesting and I will probably re-read this book at some point.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Now, this is definitely my all time favorite duology. I love the world that Bardugo created and I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy and gangs. You can click here if you would like to read more about Six of Crows and here if you’re interested in reading about the second book, Crooked Kingdom.
A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
I really enjoyed this book and am really excited for the third book to come out next year. I think this book is great for those who love Sherlock Holmes and don’t mind a more juvenile take on the crimes he solves. If you’d like to read my full review you can click here!
The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
This book was such a nice read and since it is out now I definitely recommend picking up a copy! I feel like I’m being repetitive but you can click here if you’re interested in reading my review about this book.
The Gifting by K. E. Ganshert
I read this book on my phone because I found the first book for free and said why not read it. I’m so happy that I read it because not only was the story amazing but I was supporting an author that isn’t currently mainstream. I definitely recommend either reading this trilogy on a kindle or picking it up from your local bookstore.
