These books are just kind of my go-to recommendations. Obviously, if I get acquainted with someone’s specific taste, I’ll personalize the recs, but these are some of my favorite books that I think a lot of people will enjoy, even if they’re not big readers.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – This is my favorite book series of all time! It’s action-packed and the characters are a lot of fun. I’m always telling people they need to read this book, and assuring them it’s way better than the crap-tastic movie made in its name. I know the vampire craze is over, but, in my opinion, this series transcends that trend. It’s much more than the standard vampire novel.
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson – I picked this book up earlier in the year and it quickly became one of my new favorite contemporary books. The friendship elements in it are fantastic, the romance is adorable, and the over-all plot is a ton of fun.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi – This series is quick to read, and the writing is unlike anything else I’ve ever read, so I’m always shoving this book in people’s hands.
Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry – This is another one of my favorite contemporary novels. I love the romance and the way the two main characters have to work through so much crap going on in their own heads.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – I actually only read this a few weeks ago, but ever since then I’ve been practically shouting from every rooftop I pass that people need to read this book. It’s heartbreaking and phenomenal
Delirium by Lauren Oliver – I’m pretty sure I’ve told everyone in my life to read this novel. The premise is unique and the execution is flawless. Oliver’s writing is absolutely stunning, and I just need everyone to read this series.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – This is another more recent read, but I thought it was incredibly adorable and relatable.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare – While I like TMI, I love this series even more. I feel like everyone knows about TMI now that it has been adapted into a movie and a TV series, so when people express interest in that series, I always point them to The Infernal Devices.
If you haven’t read any of these, I sincerely hope you do! I found all of these novels to be utterly unputdownable. If you’d like to chat with me about these books (or any books, really) feel free to chat me up at ANY time. I’m always on board with making new bookish friends.
