Carlie Liddle | 5 comments I've recently started Rainbow Rowell books and I've read all but one John Green book and im looking for something similar to read. preferably a teen love story or something linking to mental health llike The Perks of being a Wallflower (also I'd prefer something that isn't a series) :) thanks in advance

Kristy Ann (thefictionalfairy) | 345 comments Have you read the Stephanie Perkins books? It's not a series per se. But there are three of them. Anna and the French Kiss. Lola and the Boy Next Door. Isla and the Happily Ever After.

Grace Meredith (koreantrash) I'm not sure if this is technically considered YA, but The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon is absolutely brilliant. It stars a boy named Christopher Boone, who's autistic, and when his neighbor's dog is murdered, he sets out to find the culprit. It's super fast and very engaging. One of my favorite books in the universe.

Also, Sophie Kinsella's new book, Finding Audrey, is about a young woman who suffers from PTSD. It's set in England and is positively HILARIOUS, and is also a very sweet and heartwarming story.

Michelle (callee7) I just finished reading All the Bright Places by Jennifer Nevin, not even 10 minutes ago. It is a very touching and emotional read. Highly recommended!

Carlie Liddle | 5 comments so I was at asda (UK supermarket) and saw When we collided by Emery Lord and it just kind of stood out to me, so I bought it for a bargain of £4 and I'm obsessed. it has everything that I wanted in a YA book and its so far its so relatable to how fast my own relationship happened. :)

message 20: by Toddie (new)

Toddie (toddied) Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt I cannot tell you how much I loved this book. It focuses on Doug, who's the new kid in town and whose family doesn't have the greatest reputation. But he finds inspiration in the most unusual of places and as he begins to find himself, he opens himself up to the world as well. All the characters in this novel are wonderful and three dimensional and funny, and I did not want the book to end.

Toddie (toddied) I just added Finding Audrey to my To Read list. Thanks for the recommendation!
