The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
The Fault in Our Stars

This book made me smile, laugh, and cry. All at the same time. The intensity of this book is only made possible by the genius of John Green, he uses beautiful metaphors to really hit home the themes of the book. Everyone should read this book it really puts life in perspective. I highly recommend it.

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins
Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3)

This book is so great you will read it over and over.
Side effects:
Crying, Hysterical Sobs, Withdrawal symptoms, Random quoting, Smell of roses randomly appears, Urge to grab arrows out of your quiver, Nightmares
OK so the side effects are a little exaggerated. But I will tell you that this book is epic, at times you will feel like you are in the action. The author does a great job of describing the war zone and using her characters. At the end it leaves you bereft and understanding. She ties up all the loose ends, but you can't help wishing that it wouldn't end.

Great book. Can't wait to read Tiger's Destiny! I highly recommend this book for any YA readers. It's a great mix of fantasy and realistic elements. Makes you fall in love with the characters.

Gotta love Rick Riordan. I've read all his books except for the 39 clues series. I keep coming back to the Lightening Thief. I've probably read this book 3-4 times and I love it everytime. I highly recommend reading it if you haven't already.
