message 13: by Pete (new)

Pete ...Once again to Goodreads: I would love for this not to be a sponsored post at the top of my feed. Any way this could be made possible?

I feel there should be an 'opt out of all the bullshit' button.

One of Us is Lying was great!!

I also recommend this one very highly: Little Monsters

This one is also very good and part of a trilogy: I Hunt Killers

Maybe not much romance in this one, but I just finished The Unfortunates. It's a quick read and will really keep you guessing the entire way through. I wasn't the biggest fan, but you might like it! Another book I heard was really good is Not If I Save You First. Hope this helps! :)


message 23: by Amberlee (new)

SAME HERE!


message 38: by Mehar (new)

Mehar If anyone is into fantasy and heists and amazing characters, I totally recommend the Six of Crows duology. I've never quite read anything like it, and I don't think I ever will. Be warned, though, it might spoil any unfortunate books you read after it because it just eclipses everything with its sheer awesomeness.

John Hudson TheThird I'm reading Ready Player One. It's incredible! I thought the movie was pretty average, than I read the book and am blown away by it! The world is very realized and is, so far, living up to the hype I've heard around it!


message 46: by Alejandra (new)

Alejandra I love YA, and because of that this week I will be reading "Cinder" and "The Darkest Minds".


message 47: by Yas (new)

Yas Ye YA is where unimaginative lazy writing come to thrive.

If that is how you see it, give Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology or his Graveyard Book a go. Another good author for YA is Neal Shusterman.
