Books that I Recommend

I was recently thinking that there are several books that I am constantly recommending to other people. I thought it might be a good idea to make a list and give a few reasons on why I recommend these books and what about them is so special.

The Naming by Alison Croggon

The Naming is one of my favorite books and one of the books I most highly recommend to fantasy lovers. It is a series of four books that is not only incredibly well written, but increasingly interesting as the series goes on. It is also very unique, in my opinion. If you enjoy magic, fantasy, and an interesting twist on bards, then you might want to check it out. This is a book that I will recommend forever.

The Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

The Uglies is the book series that truly got me into Scott Westerfeld's work. While he has several series out now, I still think that The Uglies is by far his best series. Dystopian in nature, the novel introduces us to a character named Tally that through the series will go through so many changes that she will barely recognize herself by the end of it all. The Uglies is highly acclaimed and one of the books that I think anyone who enjoys young adult literature should check out.

Skin Hunger by Kathleen Duey

Skin Hunger, I believe, is highly overlooked by most readers. I find it even hard to locate it at a bookstore, let alone find someone I know in person who has also read it. This is why I recommend it so frequently. It is an excellent series that is still currently going on (we are awaiting the third installment) about magic. It switches Point of View between two characters and is all the more interesting for it. I also recommend this to male readers who enjoy Young Adult.

Other Novels:

I could go on and on about more novels, but I decided to make a list instead. A majority of these books don't even need a reason why they are constantly recommended.

-The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
-The Maze Runner by James Dashner
-Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
-Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
-Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken
-Cirque Du Freak by Darren Shan
-Harry Potter (series) by J.K. Rowling
-Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow
-Divergent by Veronica Roth
