Recommended Fiction

Sometimes you need to relax, let your mind wander to a far-off dystopian land and get lost in a book. For the most part that happens for me when I read young adult fiction but sometimes a comedic love story slips through the cracks. Below you'll find a list of all my favorite fiction.

And if you're looking for non-fiction, here is my list of those I recommend.

Uglies Series

Uglies Series

The Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld consists of 4 books: Uglies, Pretties, Specials and Extras. There are two different covers available. Tally Youngblood can’t wait to turn prettie and move to New Pretty Town but there are many decisions that get in the way of her original dream.

Attachments

Attachments

Attachments is about finding love before first sight. It takes place around the Y2K time frame and I couldn’t love it more. I can relate to many of the characters, including Lincoln’s mother who is pretty much Paleo. :)

Fangirl

Fangirl

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (author of Eleanor & Park) is about Cather’s first year in college. How she juggles moving away from home, the raging fans of her fanfiction, college classes and relationships with her twin sister Wren, her crazy father, estranged mother, roommate and boys.

Hate List

Hate List

Hate List is a book by Jennifer Brown which you may think is about a high school shooting but really it’s about putting the pieces together after Val survives. Is she a hero or the cause for everything?

Graduation Day

Graduation Day

Graduation Day is the final book in The Testing Series by Joelle Charbonneau. Cia Vale needs to make some extremely tough decisions that could determine the fate of many lives and the entire country.

The One

The One

The One is the third book in The Selection trilogy by Kiera Cass. We finally find out who America (and Maxon) choose. There are many twists & turns in this finale but it’s worth the wait in the end.
