As I sit here at 10:36pm, I don't think about the book I just finished, or the book I'm about to start - no, I think of all the books that I do not own and feel as though I need right. this. minute.
So I've complied a list of books that - I think - I need right now, and I am going to share that list with you.
1. Vicious, by V.E. Schwab
JesseTheReader and PeruseProject on YouTube. I've gathered that this novel starts off following two pretty cool dudes named Victor and Eli who have a pretty cool platonic relationship. Then it jumps into the future and their arch-nemesi (plural for arch-nemesis, I may have just made that word up). Apparently, it's hard to pick a side because they're both 'evil' and I wonder who I would be more inclined to side with and why. I'm very intrigued by this novel and how the characters came to be, and I need it now.
2. Winger, by Andrew Smith
Katytastic and BookHunter155). It seems like your typical troubled-teen-living-in-a-boarding school book, but this one intrigues me because of all the hype around it. Plus, as a teen who is sometimes troubled, I enjoy relating to troubled teens in fictional worlds; it makes me feel less alone. This book holds an average 4.19 rating on Goodreads - which is high - so that intrigues me as well.
3. The Sky is Everywhere, by Jandy Nelson
Ransom Riggs, and after reading his novel, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and loving it to death, I can't not read something he's recommended. After looking it up and actually finding out what it's about, the character is so similar to me (except I play trumpet instead of clarinet and my older sister is alive - love you, Rachel!) that it's scary and I must read it.
4. Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline
5. Stardust, by Neil Gaiman
There you have it. A list of 5 books I'd like on my shelf right now. At this moment they're all set to high priority on my amazon wishlist.
