Top Ten Books That I Really Love But Feel Like I Don't Talk About Enough
Pretty much the chance for me to showcase all the books I think you guys need to read A S A P!! 

1.  Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas
I feel like this is one of the best YA Thriller's out there but I do think it has been overshadowed by We Were Liars. I wrote a Spotlight post on it but seriously check it out guys!

2. Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman
Ok, I lied. I probably have mentioned this a fair few times but it's the most underrated book out there. The story is heartbreakingly beautiful and delivers an amazing message.

3. Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult
Easily one of my favourite reads but not a lot of people know this because of how little I mention it. It's a haunting mystery that I deserves so many re-reads.

4. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
This was a recommended read and I've loved it ever since. It's so touching and eye opening at the some time.

5. Matteo Alacran Series by Nancy Farmer
Fans of sci-fi would definitely love this series. I'm not a huge sci-fi reader, but I loved how Farmer explored issues on identity, human/natural resources and consequences from our actions.

6. A Face Like Glass by Frances Hardinge
A mix of fantasy and mystery, the world built for this story is magical and very unique. Imagine faces that are moulded to appear a way but the main character can express any emotion she wants.

7. Peter Pan by J.M Barie
I feel like Peter Pan is forgotten quite a bit but it is by far my favourite classic for its emphasis on childhood and the importance in friendship and loyalty. Gives me such a nostalgic feel.

8. Rosebush by Michele Jaffe
YA Thriller done right again, and also one hidden in the shadows. Michele Jaffe is widely known but has some amazing work to her name!

9. This Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Sylvia Plath writes a surprisingly relatable story about depression and suicide, explaining perfectly how it feels like to be in a "bell jar" whilst the world functions around you. It's moving and kind of sad considering she did take her life in the end.

10. Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente

Deathless is a beautiful tale about a Russian folktale that combines Valente's gorgeous writing with Russia's history and characters. It does get a bit graphic and some points but I'm so glad I stumbled across it.

  1. AHH I LOVE SO MANY OF THESE!! Particularly Peter Pan (best classic ever...and also Alice in Wonderland, ahem xD) oh oh and I really want to read Noughts and Crosses! I've seen it come up on a few lists lately and it's reminded me I need to devour it. ;D ALSO DANGEROUS GIRLS IS AMAZING. It nearly gave me a heartattack. xD Did you read Dangerous Boys? I still think DG is the best one, but DB was so so chilling, omg.
