A few weeks ago I went to Barnes and Noble, possibly my favorite place on earth, and went all out, I bought some books that I am immensely excited to read and blog about.
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
I've been a fan of all of Cassandra Clare's books since I read The Mortal Instruments, this author has an innate power to create a realm that transports the reader and creates an attachment to the characters in a realm that is almost familial. Lady Midnight, spin off of The Mortal Instruments, where the Mortal Instruments takes place at the New York Institute, Lady Midnight takes place in Los Angeles, with a new group of Shadow hunters. It will be very interesting to see how the characters in Lady Midnight will be related to the ancestors in The Infernal Devices, prequel to Mortal Instruments. I had to get this book so I can find out what happens to everyone in New York as well as Emma who idolized the characters in The Mortal Instruments. I have no doubt that I will become obsessed with this series, which happens every time I read a work of Cassandra Clare's.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
I've seen many people raving about this book, the subject of this piece is vital for young people to read about, in today's social climate, race and police brutality play a major role in several communities. What inspired the author is a truly riveting story of how a shooting that took place thousands of miles away affected her on a personal level. The authors courage to discuss such a raw topic is what immediately drew me to this book, the author, Angie Thomas is truly inspiring and I cannot wait to be moved by this read.
The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
This read is written by the author of "Everything Everything" and I am pretty mush obsessed with her writing, she makes her words cosmic in a way, like the universe is constantly conspiring in just the right way for the characters. This book revolves around two people from completely different walks of life coming together because the Universe deems it possible. The story is also told from many different perspectives as the characters have slight interactions with them. I was drawn to this book because of the way the Universe seems to be personified. I'm certain Nicola Yoon wont disappoint.
Everyday by David Leviathan
This book interested me because of the story line, a teen waking up in a different body each day, the story line is bound to end with a moral understanding for both the main character and the reader. The main character will be on a journey, witnessing how how people live in all walks of live, which will make the main character appreciate ones own situation more. Everyday seems like a short meaningful read.
Cold Summer by Gwen Cole
This book drew me in because the story line consisted of a teen with time traveling abilities, naturally as a Doctor Who fan anything with time travel interests me. The journey to understand his ability that the main character is on should prove interesting and I am excited to see how the main character will navigate through time while finding himself in the process.
Don't Close Your Eyes by Holly Seddon
Don't Close Your Eyes boasts of an interesting plot of a girl having the ability to enter another's dreams, this plot is very compelling because the main character can enter someone else's subconscious and see they're inner desires. It will be interesting to see how the main characters relationships develop and how she navigates through her journey.
Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moira Fowley-Doyle
I picked up this book because there is something whimsical and mystical about the plot, not to mention that it takes place in Ireland which is possibly one of the most magical places on earth. This book revolves around a group of teens loosing things in town, stumbling across a spell book and getting to the bottom of the mystery. This should be a lighthearted energizing read.
The Fallen Series by Lauren Kate
This series seems to be incredibly intriguing, after reading The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices I needed a new series to delve into, and The Fallen Series seems like a good fit. The Fallen Series showcases a complex paranormal story line that I hope is not filled with too much teen angst. The main character, Luce, seems to go through a whirlwind of finding herself within her power to see shadow beings while navigate through her new surroundings. The Fallen Series also boast a form of a Dystopian society within Luce's new surroundings. This series has all the makings of a perfectly worthy of obsessing over series.
As you can see, whenever I go to Barnes and Nobel I go all out, now that I have all of these exciting reads I don't really know where to start. Currently I'm reading "The Sun is Also a Star" and it is amazing, Nicola Yoon does not disappoint, I highly recommend anything she writes.
