Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead
So I was reading Jollygirl's blog last night and she recommended the MG book Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead. I hadn't heard of it before but I have read one of Rebecca's previous books (Liar and Spy, which sidenote is SO GOOD.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
This is just one of those books that EVERYONE raves about in the blogging community. I've read Fangirl previously by Rainbow Rowell which I LOVED so I will definitely be trying to read Carry On soon.
The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
Ah does this really need explaining? Everyone (and I mean, everyone) loves series and I haven't read it yet *cue gasps and angry vegetables being thrown at my feet* I ALWAYS say this month I will read Harry Potter but no, never happens.
Slated by Teri Terry
Firstly can we all just appreciate this author's name YAS. Now Teri Terry came to my library on a visit (and I mISSED it). Anywayy, one of her books caught my eye and it's about a girl called Kyla who's memory was wiped by the government. They claim she was a terrorist but past is coming back, ever so slightly and someone is lying. This sounds so suspenseful and a bit of a mystery (which I love).
Uglies by Scott Westerfield
I was reading The Book People catalogue quite a while ago now and in the (very small) YA section there was this book called the Uglies. Tally lives in a world where everyone is Ugly until they turn 16 where they become a Pretty and Tally cannot wait. On the other hand, her best friend Shay doesn't want to become Pretty and runs away and Tally is left with a hard decision - find Shay and turn her in or stay Ugly forever.
I have loadssss more (and I mean lots) but I could only share a few with you today. If you have any more book recommendations that you think I should add to my TBR then let me know, I have a big love for contemporary and realistic (or mystery) MG/YA books so if you have any recommendations for me, let me know.
