If anyone is looking for YA, here are some I found really good!

Nemesis by Brendan Reichs (a sort of dystopian/si-fi book. Personally, I love the characters!)
And I Darken by Kiersten White (historical fiction/fantasy)
Caraval by Stephanie Garber (Fantasy. One of my favorite books by far!)
My Lady Jane (historical fiction/fantasy)
The End and Other Beginnings by Veronica Roth (futuristic short stories)
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (fantasy)
YA fantasy books I'd recommend: A Court of Thorns and Roses (Sarah J. Maas), Throne of Glass (Sarah J. Maas), The Cruel Prince (Holly Black), Shadow and Bone (Leigh Bardugo), Six of Crows (Leigh Bardugo), Red Queen (Victoria Aveyard)
Modern-day-magic books: Carry On (Rainbow Rowell), The Raven Cycle (Maggie Steifvater)
Classic fairy tales set in the future: The Lunar Chronicles (Marissa Meyer)
These are all amazing books in my opinion, hope someone else likes them too!
I love A Court of Thorns and Roses! I just finished the Throne of Glass series and though that was really good too.

"The Catcher in the Rye" by J. D. Salinger was probably the best book I've read all year, I swear it changed my life. I've now read it like five times, and each time there are more concepts and messages to be absorbed and discovered. Seriously everyone should read this book.
...Also, an interesting piece of trivia, some people think that the book is cursed, because it supposedly caused several people to murder.
Just finished reading Nowhere Boy by Katherine Marsh. It’s GREAT, especially if you like adventure/historical fiction
“Love, hate and other filters” by Samira Ahmed. (I think that’s the author and the name of the book)
Is one of my favorite books.
I read that book and really like it as well!

I just read the Memory Book (don’t know the author sorry) and was sobbing by the end of it. Totally worth reading

what is it about?
12/01/2019 - 1:07pm
It’s about a girl who is diagnosed with a disease that will cause her to forget everything. So she writes everything she experiences down in her memory book. That’s the basic line
12/01/2019 - 2:07pm
oh, this sounds interesting!
12/01/2019 - 5:58pm
Cool! I'll try to check it out!

"The Song of Achilles" by Madeline Miller
"we were liars" by e. lockhart
"I'll Give You The Sun" by Jandy Nelson
"The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak
"The Hidden Reality" by Brian Greene (nonfiction)
And of course, Harry Potter, Divergent, Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, etc. . .
Fair warning, some of these has slightly adult themes. I'd recommend looking them up before reading :)
Just finished A Man Called Ove and I highly recommend it! I couldn't stop smiling and crying at the same time :)
Does anyone have any suggestions for a girl who loves romantic- comedy- action- adventure? I’m always looking for new books to read since I pretty much read 24/7 :)

Hello everyone! Welcome to the YWP book club! I personally am so excited to share books and get some fun new reads! As you may have seen on the announcement for the club, I am going to be leading a special feature to add to the book club element. Every month, I will suggest a personal favorite book for you to read. You don't have to read the book if you don't want to, but it is a fun way to connect to other writers by reading the same book at the same time. :)
The first book (which officially starts in the month December) is the 57 Bus by Dashka Slater. I read this recently, and it is an AMAZING non-fiction book about two teenagers, Sasha and Richard, who are struggling with gender, race and identity and the crime that changed their lives. I hope that you enjoy it. :)
Happy reading!
11/27/2019 - 2:09pm
sounds interesting! I'll see if I can find it.
11/27/2019 - 7:57pm
any of you read the Divergent series? Favorite character?
Also Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit! my favorites would have to be Galadriel and pippin.

I love the Divergent series! Personally, Tris is my favorite character because of her bravery, but I like Christina too!
11/27/2019 - 2:37pm
I like Tris's mom.
11/27/2019 - 7:40pm
I am reading the first Divergent book right now! It’s really good so far.
11/28/2019 - 8:36am
Divergent was one of my first book loves. My favorite character is definitely Four (yes, I'm basic lol). Have you read Veronica Roth's new series? I haven't and am debating on if it is worth the read.
12/02/2019 - 3:14pm
I haven’t! I’ve heard good things about it though.
12/02/2019 - 5:26pm

Magnus Chase series
Alex, who comes in in the second book, weilding a deadly clay cutting tool.
Harry Potter
peeves is amazing
and snape is so twistedly sweet
The Hunger Games

Artemis Fowl

I love Harry Potter too!

My favorite characters are Bellatrix Lestrange, Snape and McGonagall
11/27/2019 - 6:23pm
Harry Potter is my all time favorite!!! My favorite character has pretty much always been Lupin, even though people sometimes say he’s boring, he’s so kind and I feel so sorry for him.
11/28/2019 - 8:25am
Lupin is awesome! and so is Tonks!
11/29/2019 - 10:24am
Has anyone read Shadow and Bone? I'm reading it right now and it is AMAZING!!!! Definite must read if you like fantasy!!

It sounds really familiar
11/27/2019 - 6:23pm
I love that series! After you finish it, you should check out Six of Crows, the other series by Leigh Bardugo!

11/27/2019 - 7:41pm
I highly recommend Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer- it’s probably my favorite series.
Can’t wait for the movie to come out in the spring!
My friend is obsessed with that series, he just WON'T shut up about it!
11/26/2019 - 1:31pm
