Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood - YA paranormal about witches
The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler - Funny and sweet book about two teenagers in the 90s who manage to log into their Facebook accounts 15 years in the future.
Scars by Cheryl Rainfield - Harrowing story. Hard to read at times...
The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen
I'm up to 35 books read so far this year already!
Book suggestions? I've read all of John's already of course, so other than that.
i've just started "the unlikely pilgrimage of harold fry" by rachel joyce and so far it's been really good! other than that "the perks of being a wallflower" by stephen chbosky (i haven't seen the movie yet, but the novel is amazing:) ) and of course anything by Markus Zusak that you can get your hands on - especially "i am the messenger" and "the book thief", they rip your heart out and put it back in because they're that beautiful! and i can only recommend Jonathan Safran Foer, that man is a genius!
any suggestions in return?:)
Maureen Johnson's books are all great as well!
I started with Star Wars: Revan, Perks of being a wallflower, Star Wars:Decieved, Star Wars Red Harvest, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Tom Clancy Splinter Cell: Operation Barracuda, Tom Clancy: Dead or Alive, Midsummer Nights Dream.
