I'm sure you're aware the start of the school season is getting closer. I mean, who can forget that ? *sigh* I thought It'd be cool to write an original recommendation post to put you in the mood and help you after tough school days ! These books are in no particular order and I liked all of them (I wouldn't recommend them otherwise). I didn't put Harry Potter in this list because everyone knows the serie already ~ Anyway let's get started !
This book is one of my all time favourite. Charlie is a socially awkward freshman. He's always been a wallflower and decides to stop watching and start experiencing. This book is hilarious but very emotional and it has amazing quotes in it.
Charlie is cute and likeable, I think everyone can relate to him one way or another. It's the perfect book to start the school year !
You've probably heard of this one. The most popular book written by Rainbow Rowell. Even though I had trouble getting into her other books, Eleanor & Park gripped me and didn't let me go until the last page. In this heart-warming story we follow the journey of two realistic misfits struggling between their insecurites and their family lives. Park just wants to be under the radar but when the "oddly" dressed Eleanor sits next to him in the school bus, he realizes things are not going to be as easy as planned. This is not a story just about love and holding hands. Dark subject are brilliantly dealt with and I'm sure your heart will twist several times while reading it.
The story follows Auggie, a boy born with a severe facial deformity that scares children and stun adults. He's been homeschooled his whole life until his parents decide going to middle school would be beneficial for him and would make him feel more "normal". I felt immediately protective towards Auggie, middle school kids are cruel and I just wanted to put Auggie in Wonderland so he can live happily ever after. We read from multiple perspectives and every single on them were interesting. This is a very important book and you should definitely read it.
A girl going to a school of assassins in order to have her revenge on the people who destroyed her family. The teachers and students are dangerous and any failure can result in death. Who said boring schools were the worst ? This book has everything I love in Fantasy, it's dark and violent and there isn't any romantic drama. In other words, it's amazing.
This serie was popular a few years ago and I enjoyed it a lot. There are two types of vampires : Moroi and Strigoi. The Moroi must be protected by Dhampir from the Strigoi (those who never dies). Rose, a dhampir left the school with her best friend, Lissa (a Moroi) in order to protect her. Few years later, they get caught and are forced to go back to the Academy. Together, they have to face the dangers that threaten them and catch up with the rest of the students. This serie is addictive. It's humourous and entertaining, I read the whole serie very quickly. Just mentionning it makes me want to read it again ~
This book is about a boy who keeps having nightmare about monsters. One night a monster calls. It's not of his dreams but it's determined to take the hardest thing Connor could give. The truth. This book is gripping and emotional, I couldn't stop reading it. After all these months, this book is still with me. I can't even describe it properly because I'm still stunned and impressed. If you want to read something deep, A Monster Calls is you go-to.
This one of the first book I've ever read. Clay finds an intriguing box with his name on it on his porch. In it, he find thirteen cassete tapes recorded by Hannah, a girl who commited suicided who also happened to be his crush. In these tapes, she explains the thirteen reasons why she commited suicide and Clay receiving them means he's one of them. Why did she do it ? And why is he on the list ?
This book is a firework of feelings, I can't say more than that. There are a lot of mysteries to unravel and hard truths to learn, this is an important and touching read.
In three sentences :
- A bording school
- Rooming with the bully
- In the dorm of hilarious troublemakers
This book made me laugh and shake my head in disbelief several times. I didn't think I'd enjoy it so much but Andrew Smith is very talented. I should probably read his other books now that I think about it. Anyway, if you want to have a great time after a boring day at school, Winger will do the job !
Bliss is still a virgin. Actually, she's the only virgin among her friends so in order to change this situation she decides to have a one night stand and get this over with. Unfortunately she freaks out at the last minute and make up a hilarious excuse to get out of this mess. Things get even crazier and funnier for us when she finds out her one night stand is her new teacher.
This book is as hilarious as it sounds, I laughed a lot and I shipped like crazy.
I hope you'll find the right book for you among those. Tell me if some of them interest you, or if you've already read one of them !
