- Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover – I LOVED the fact that there was a soundtrack that went along with this book. Since much of the book revolved around the main characters writing songs together, this was just completely perfect. Listening to the songs brought so much more emotional impact to this book!
- Viral Nation by Shaunta Grimes – I loved that the protagonist in this book was on the autism spectrum. Seeing the book’s crazy world through her eyes was a unique experience!
- Unwind by Neal Shusterman – The concept of this book just blew me away! One of the best dystopians out there in my opinion! This book made me really think and I’ve never been able to forget it!
- Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma – How on earth did Suzuma write a book about incest and make it beautiful and stunning and amazing and heart-wrenching and … I could go on. I LOVED this book, even while I was totally creeped out by the fact that I loved it!
- Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion – A zombie love story. ‘Nuff said.
- All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill – Time travel books often just make my head hurt, but this book was an exception. I thought that the time travel aspect of this book was handled really well and the story ended up being really unique and interesting.
- Escape from Eden by Elisa Nader – I was fascinated with reading a book about life in a cult. I’m sure there are probably other books on this subject, but this is the only one I’ve read.
- The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams – How can I even describe all the ways that this book is amazing and unique? I’ve never read anything else as incredibly witty as this series. Douglas Adams is a genius!
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling – Rowling did something amazing with the Harry Potter series. She somehow managed to capture the hearts and minds of millions of people in an incredible way. I mean, we now have Harry Potter theme parks. Is there any other series that can say that?
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – Again, this series brought a new genre to so many people. The concept was compelling and horrifying all at the same time. And with so many new dystopian books being compared to this one, you can’t deny that this book kind of kicked off an era!
