The Year of the Rat- Claire Furniss
Ashleigh did a more in-depth review of this one, so if you want to know more, go check that out. Otherwise, you will like this book if you like, crying, cute romances, teens dealing with a dead parent figure and a new sibling, a sarcastic sense of humour and general likeability.
A Little Something Different- Sandy Hall
You will like this book if you like lots of different perspectives, lots and lots of shipping (this book is basically just everyone shipping this one guy with this one girl), a pretty predictable narrative and a talking squirrel.
Losing Clementine- Ashley Ream
This one was very much an adult book, not just because of the themes and content, but just the way it was written and the fact that the protagonist was middle-aged rather than a teenager. You will like this one if you enjoy beautifully artistic covers, a sarcastic witty sharp but ultimately loveable protagonist, art, a very well-planned suicide, long-lost siblings and people generally not knowing what they're doing with their lives.
Ender's Shadow- Orson Scott-Card
You will like this book if you liked; Ender's Game. END of story. <<<< Hahahahaha. I am hilarious. Also, psychological thrillers and if you've ever thought about reading a book from the perspective of one of the other characters, but the book isn't any better or worse or too repetitive, but really well done and superbly enhances the first book, then yes. Read this and Ender's Game. Doesn't matter in which order.
Love, Rosie- Celia Ahern
You will love this book if you love infuriating characters who take 50 years to figure out that they were meant to be together!!! UGH!!! Seriously, figure it out. Also, if you like stories told without narrative, just told through communication between characters ie; letters, emails, texts and people who never give up.
We Need To Talk About Kevin- Lionel Shrivner
If you like expanding your vocabulary by five words every page, teenage psychopaths, feeling uncomfortable, wanting to punch said teen psychopath, beautiful plot twists, just generally really well-written-ness, and an ending that leaves you like ?!?!?!?!?! :O Then you will want to talk about Kevin. Warning, this is not for the faint hearted, but if you love Criminal Minds as much as I do, you will love this book. Talk about psychological thrillers, amiright?
Paper Towns- John Green
Do you like John Green? Then you will like this book. This book features a long friendship, a missing girl too fond of mysteries, a road trip and just general teenagery-ness.
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves- Karen Joy-Fowler
Do you like monkeys, weird social experiments, kids traumatised by monkeys being used in said experiments and lots of necessary geeky references?
The 5th Wave- Rick Yancey
If you like dystopian, aliens, a generally kick-butt teenage girl who loves her adorable little brother who has been kidnapped by aliens, a world that you are super enthusiastic about and then the author kills it by writing the most cringe-worthy teen romance you will ever read, including way too much info about the guys butt...then you will like this book.
The Outsiders- S. E. Hinton
You will like this book if you like classics, misunderstood teenagers, well-meaning greasers, people that stick together like family, tears, sobbing and crying.
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks- E. Lockhart
You will like this book if you're all about a light, easy, fun read, boarding schools, pranks, a secret club and revenge on your secretive boyfriend.
A Long Way Down- Nick Hornby
A comedy about suicide? Flawed and sometimes pretentious, but ultimately loveable characters? Nick Hornby? A movie based on this novel starring Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Imogen Poots and Aaron Paul? Sounds pretty good to me. It could've been better. I just found things a bit, idk, unrelatable and unlikely and outlandish sometimes.
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist- David Levithian and Rachel Cohn
Do you like music, excessive amounts of swearing, crazy exes, 5 minute girlfriends, underground bands, a cute bass guitarist and all night adventure that makes you feel young again (I know I'm still young, but you get the point)??? Then you will like this book.
When Dogs Cry/Fighting Ruben Wolfe/Getting the Girl- Markus Zusak
If you enjoy books with more than one title which is super confusing, an attractive, but emotionally abusive older brother, a less attractive, but poetic and sensitive and slightly creepy younger brother, a really sweet, but no-nonsense younger sister, a beautiful harmonica playing girl named Octavia and the all important bond of family, then give this book a shot. Not Zusak's best work, but then again it was one of his firsts and there were still moments that I absolutely loved because they just paint the picture so intricately.
Hollow City- Ransom Riggs
If you liked Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, a bunch of kids with special powers running around like the X-Men, vintage photographs that make everything super creepy, but also super awesome, a protagonist you are likely to fall in love with, a talking dog and gypsies, then you will like this book. Also, don't read it unless you are willing to wait until October for the sequel. ARGHHH!!! I AM SO IMPATIENT!
The Girl With All the Gifts- M. R. Carey
Zombies, humanised zombies, beautifully crafted characters, tense super well-written narrative, psychological thrillers style, did I mention zombies?? Also, this guy writes X-Men comics for Marvel. What's not to love.
The Pause- John Larkin
This book is like a combination of It's Kind of a Funny Story and The 5 People You Meet in Heaven. Read only if you like tears, and clawing at your face from cuteness, and having bombshells dropped on your head and teens that you just want to hug. Humans. UGH.
That's it!! That's the end. If you have any questions about any of these books or want more in depth reviews of any of these, please leave a comment and I'll see what I can manage.
