Must Read Books (for teens/YA[Young Adult])

Ever run out of books to read? Well here’s a bunch of books you must (the list is not in order). I also have read all of these.

  1. The Divergent Series. I wrote a review about this book. It’s a must read for those who life sci-fi. You may know it by the movie.
  2. The Hunger Games. The movie is also well known. This is also a trilogy.
  3. The Maze Runner. I think you get the idea that most of these books are so good that they made it into movies. This book was really interesting but also kinda graphic.
  4. Harry Potter. I’m a total Potterhead. The books and the movies are awesome in my opinion. MUST READ
  5. Percy Jackson. This is a very long book series. The first series is Percy Jackson and The Olympians. The second is The Heroes of Olympus. they each have 5 books in it in total. The first book of the third series, The Trials of Apollo came out last year. By the way, the movie is nothing like the book.
  6. The Land of Stories. This series is written by the well known actor, Chris Colfer from Glee. This is one of my favourite series because of all the plot twists and suspense.
  7. The Selection. Romance. My friend gave me this book on my birthday last year. The series is complete.
  8. Underworld by Meg Cabot. This book was interesting because I am a fan of Greek Mythology. For those of you who don’t know the book, it’s kind of about a love story in the Underworld (ewwwww :p )
  9. Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. Yet another trilogy. It’s about people with special abilities who go on an adventure. It’s really exciting.
  10. The Fault in Our Stars. Epic. Emotional. Awesome. I reread this about 4 times now.
  11. If I Stay. I’ve read the book and seen the movie. They’re both amazing. After this read the sequel, Where She Went.

Okay, so most lists have only 10 suggestions, so this is an odd number but I randomly thought of an extra must read. Hope this was helpful! You honestly have to read them all. Hope we have the same taste in books.


Divergent Series Book Review (Spoilers)

2017-03-01-1Like any other teenage girl, I love to read novels. My favourites are YA(young adult) and science fiction.

I actually read this book about 2 years ago. I’ve reread it about 6 times by now. That’s how good it is. When I started reading it the whole series was complete. I got the story of Four (idk what to call it) from a friend from my birthday last year. You have to read it if you have not. Yes, the book is better than the movie. It is more detailed.

This review is based on my opinion. You’re welcome to share your opinions in the comments.

Divergent is the first book. It was suspenseful and thrilling. My favourite scene was probably about Christina’s fear of moths. I laughed so hard. The only thing I didn’t think was necessary was Will’s death. Surely Tris could’ve shot him in the leg or something. I can understand why Al committed suicide and I wasn’t very fond of him anyway. Tris and Four’s relationship was goals (like who doesn’t have a boyfriend who throws knives at your ear?), but was too obvious. Tris getting ranked 1st was also way too obvious.

Insurgent was really interesting. Lots of drama and suspense. It’s probably my favourite book. I honestly prefer Tris with long hair. I think the author had more experience from writing the first book, so I felt as though this book was better. I’m glad Christina and Tris made up at the end. My favourite part in this book was when Tris was at the Erudite headquarters. I still can’t believe that Peter helped her and that Caleb was a traitor, but I can believe that Peter would make sure he didn’t owe anyone. It’s weird but it seems like something Peter would do. The break in the headquarters with Marcus later was a bit confusing to me. I’m just glad that Tobias believed her at the end.

Allegiant was my least favourite book. It was confusing and tragic. I also hate change, so I wasn’t very happy when they left the city. The only change that I really liked was adding Tobias’ point of view. It made me understand what he was thinking at that time. A lot of deaths were unnecessary, such as Tori’s death or Uriah’s and even Tris’. I cried when she died. There was really no point to it other than making the readers become majorly emotional. I can’t imagine how Tobias would feel. I’m glad he overcame one fear at the end though. I still like to imagine what would’ve happened if Tris was alive.

Four was a nice sequel(let’s just call it that even if it’s not). I liked the small scenes with Tobias’ point of view and his background story. It was just too short.

The next book I need should be about what would’ve happened if Tris was alive or at least Tobias’ life after that.

So that was a long review. Share your thoughts in the comments! Thank you for actually bothering to read this long post about what I (a nobody) thought of a book.

(I’m also thinking of writing short stories or fanfiction on this blog. Let me know in the comments if I should)
