- •Everything, Everything by Nicola YoonThis YA novel got tons of buzz and deservedly so. 18 yr old Madeline is a bubble baby - so sick she can't go outside or have contact with virtually anyone. She gets a handsome new neighbour and begins to question whether it's worth being alive if you're not really living. It's a super cute love story and really well written with a great voice. Maybe one of the best books I've read this year. 8.9/10 so far.
- •My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix.Technically I finished this book yesterday because I couldn't put it down. If you enjoy horror films you will love Hendrix's style of writing - there were times when I was seriously spooked. If Heathers wasn't sinister enough for you, you should pick this book up.Suggested by @clairegee
- •Profiles in Courage by John F. KennedyOh, America. If only Jack and Bobby could see you now. And what would Jackie say????Suggested by @cinderstina
- •Prep by Curtis SittenfeldBeautifully written. I keep wishing this was my copy and not the library's because there are so many passages I want to underline. The main character is so fascinating — there are times when I feel like I'm reading my own thoughts on the page and other times when her actions are unfathomable to me. 8.5/10 so far.Suggested by @jb_piper
- •When I Was a Child I Read Books, Marilynne RobinsonRobinson is one of my very favorite authors, so it will probably come as no surprise, to those who know me, that I'm only 15 pages in and already enthralled by her prose. It's a 9.5/10 so far, and the first essay is incredibly fitting given our current political climate.Suggested by @LizDawson
