at this point 80% of my personality is just me screaming at my friends to read my favourite books so what better idea than to write post entirely focused on recommending MORE books to everyone (this is what i do best, im sorry you have to put up with me)
i made a part 1 of this some time ago, so if youre somehow still miraculously looking for recommendations, you should totally check that one out (or like message me??? plz???)
if you hated any of these books then i’d ask you to reconsider your rating bc it’ll make me cry and do you really want to make a smol, nice (most of the time), sweet angel child cry?
no, i didnt think so.
glad we had this talk.
also it took me wayyyyy to long to make this, so the best way to appreciate all my hard work would be to 5 star all the books featured below 🙂
even though these books take place in two TOTALLY different times (one being very historic and the other being very modern) they both feature a murder mystery, top quality banter, a cute dorky boy, and lots of madness.
honestly why wouldn’t you wanna pick them up?
OKAY so renegades was sadly a tragedy. i expected so much more from it and with my expectations so high (due to the masterpiece that is the lunar chronicles) it was only natural that i’d be disappointed
but you know which superhero/villain book was all my hopes and dreams??
you got it.
now go read it.
Both these books are like the guilty-pleasure kinda fantasy reads that, you know are littered with cliches and the whole love-overcomes-all charade is practically the main theme
theyre just so entertaining you don’t care that youre trash for it (i’ll speak for myself, sorry)
THIS RECOMMENDATION IS ACTUALLY TITLED
“IF YOU ENJOY BREATHING OXYGEN, THEN YOU’LL LOVE THESE BOOKS”
seriously if you dont have both these books 5 starred im going to be aggressively pelting your house with cupcakes, dont test me
both these books are: messed up, guaranteed to cause trust issues, why are people such freaks?
the main themes in both these books are how family is #1 and thats a trope i will support till i die
why dont we have more healthy, beautiful, annoying sibling dynamics in YA??!!?? the world wants to know
okay wow both these books broke me
like if you want your soul ripped out of your body and to be turned into a lifeless potato once you finish, pick these up 👌
theyre both creepy middle grade books that are wonderfully charming in their ghostly ways
and since everyone’s looking for creepy reads in october 😉😉😉
both these books feature GREAT representations of teenagers with schizophrenia (from the ownvoice reviews ive read). honestly theyre both written so well and are such fantastic, short, addictive reads
highly highly recommend
okay both these books will save your slump (if youre in one) theyre so fun with their banter (ENEMIES TO LOVERS) and mysteries and the friendship dynamics 😭😭 so good you guys
i’m going to spare you guys anymore and stop right here. BUT if you have read any of these, let me know! i’d love to hear your thoughts
and i’d love to here some books that you would recommend based off a favourite.
