World Book Day!

Today, March second, is World Book Day, and I am going to celebrate with a list of my favorite books ever.

My Favorite Books

1. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

I read Salt to the Sea three or four years ago and couldn’t stop until I got to the end. It has different story than many other World War II historical fiction books. Unfortunately, I can’t go far into the details of what I liked about it since I read it a while ago, but once I’d finished it I had declared it my favorite book.

I recommend it if:

  • You like historical fiction
  • You like books that make you feel something
  • You like page-turners and cliffhangers
  • You like young adult novels
  • You like 300-500 page books

2. Lenny’s Book of Everything by Karen Foxlee

Lenny’s Book of Everything is another one I read a few years ago. It is realistic fiction, kind of, and is an amazing story in the mind of Lenny, a girl who is “the sister of a giant.”

I recommend it if:

  • You like realistic fiction
  • You like books that make you feel something
  • You like peaceful and contemplative books
  • You like kid/young adult novels
  • You like 300-500 page books

3. The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins

I’m sure you’ve heard of this one, and if you’ve read all my other blog posts then you also already know that I’m a fan of these books, which I read for the first time last summer. My favorite in the series is Catching Fire, and though I haven’t watched the Mockingjay movies yet, I think the Catching Fire movie will be my favorite too. As you probably know if you’ve read it, the series is a pretty intense dystopian that leaves you hanging with every chapter.

I recommend it if:

  • You like science fiction or dystopian
  • You like page-turners and cliffhangers
  • You like young adult novels
  • You like 300-500 page books

4. Front Desk by Kelly Yang

I read Front Desk two years ago and really enjoyed it. It’s an interesting story about the experience of a girl who runs the front desk at the hotel her family owns. She faces difficulties with racist and rude people, but learns a lot of lessons, finds friends, and stays happy.

I recommend it if:

  • You like realistic fiction
  • You like books with struggles but a happy ending
  • You like kid/young adult novels
  • You like 300-page books

5. Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins

Finally, Gregor the Overlander, also by Suzanne Collins, was a little hard to get through at first, but once I got to the action it became one of my favorite books. My brother is reading it now and loves it as much as I do. Since having written that book review, I’m halfway through the second book and hope to write a review on it too when I finish. So far, I recommend both, and I’ll definitely finish the series.

I recommend it if:

  • You like fantasy
  • You like The Hunger Games
  • You like page-turners and cliffhangers
  • You like kid/young adult novels
  • You like 300-500 page books

Those are my 5 favorite books! (I’m sure right after hitting Publish I’ll remember one I should have included.) Of course, I recommend them all. Don’t forget to read today!
