Pamela kelly (boogaboo214) I have been wrapped up in series after series for the last 2 yrs. Give me some good stand alone novels to break the monotony of waiting for the next book all the time!!


Frank-Intergalactic Bookdragon (intergalacticbookdragon) These are pretty good Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews Geekerella by Ashley Poston The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan note Geekerella does say it's a series on here but that's because it's getting a companion and is still just a standalone with a story that wraps itself up

Jess (AKA shortstuff) (shortstuff83) | 128 comments I recommend Uprooted The Scorpio Races My Oxford Year Save the Date
To be honest I haven't read any of them but they sound so good!

I liked One Would Think The Deep, The Fault In Our Stars. Also books that are also movies, like, Everyday, The Fault In Our Stars, Love Simon. Also I agree with Georgia We Were Liars is a brilliant read I finished it tonight.

KatiEllen | 34 comments I find it so hard to find stand alone, every time I think I've found one it turns out to be a series.
The Chaos of Stars if you like Egypt.
Of Beast and Beauty which is a beauty and the beast retelling.
Monstrous Beauty if you're into mermaids.
Coraline because it's weird, creepy and amazing
Stardust well because Stardust, it's far too short for my liking though.
The Girl of Ink and Stars short and sweet

Shelby Sullivan | 2 comments For a stand alone I personally like The Princess Bride. It’s something I can get lost in again and again.

Bridgett Murphy | 137 comments Force of Chaos: The Coming of Age of the Antichrist is a good stand alone. I just got it on sale.

Jaylyn (jaylynya101) | 1 comments I personly like Anthem as a stand-alone it's really good and it has a strong meaning for our society now even though it was writing in the 50's
