All About Books You Read Because of Recommendation:
Basically these are recommendations from my sister. 🙂
1.) Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead.
If you still like Vampires in this day in age, go ahead and
skip the whole Twilight BS, and read this series! I didn’t
even really care for the whole Vampire gig, but
I LOVED THIS SERIES! 😀
2.) Just Listen by Sarah Dessen (Or EVERY Dessen book!)
If there is any YA Author that you should read EVERY
one of their books, it would HAVE to be Sarah Dessen!
She is AMAZING, and her books are too! 😉
I don’t remember what magazine I found these books in, but once I
read the synopsis, and the small review, I HAD to have them in my LIFE!
3.) Tiger Tiger by Margaux Fragoso.
I REALLY loved reading this book! I really miss reading
Memoirs! I’ve read some good ones, and this is one of them!
It’s a big sad, but if you can handle sad & tough topics,
go ahead an pick this one up!
4.) Where’d You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple.
This one is a fun read! I didn’t think I was going to like
it at first because of the set up, but I ended up LOVING it!
Can’t wait to get my hands on her new book! 😀
5.) Tell The Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt.
This one is SO GOOD! I just loved EVERYTHING about
it! It was nice to read about something so Taboo!
Tell The Wolves I’m Home, is a MUST read!
6.) The Particular Sadness Of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender.
It’s been SO long since I’ve read this book, but I remember
LOVING it! I would LOVE to reread this one some day! It
is magical realism, and I don’t think I’ve read many.
So if that is something you like, read this one! 😀
From Other Bloggers/Goodreads:
These are either from Goodreads, or friends on Goodreads. I just can’t
remember who exactly recommended them to me. Sorry if it was you! 🙂
7.) Before I Die by Jenny Downham.
This is one of the saddest books I’ve EVER read!
But if you are a big fan of sad books, this one is for you!
8.) The Year Of The Rat by Clare Furniss.
It wasn’t a Five Star read, and the main character
did kind of get on my nerves, but in the end, it is
still worth the read!
9.) Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson.
This is another tear jerker. So if you love a good tear
jerker, you HAVE to read this one! It’s REALLY good!
10.) The Duff by Kody Keplinger.
This book is hilarious! Bianca is my girl! If you haven’t
already, you MUST read this book, and watch the movie!

I haven’t read the DUFF yet, but the movie was hilarious. I’ve heard that the book is better too, so I can’t wait to check it out.
I wasn’t at all interested in the VA books, but I read the first one and thought it was just okay. Then my friend got into the Bloodlines series, and she LOVED it, so I gave VA another try, liked it, and then fell in love with Bloodlines too.
I actually HATED the Bloodlines Series. I guess it just wasn’t for me.
So, so many great ones on your list! I was especially happy to see Bernadette make your list. I loved that goofy book!

Vampire academy seems like it would be fun, and the movie made me more interested cause I’m sure the books are better lol. And I’m sorry but the cover of Lemon Cake is making me hungry- that chocolate frosting… 🙂
Yep, the movie has NOTHING on the books! I personally think the movie was a joke!
Cake = ❤
Great List! VA is also on mine!
VA is great, and Just Listen is my favorite Sarah Dessen novel. I also really loved The DUFF. Great list today, thanks for sharing. 🙂
Here’s my TTT
I have to say that I was never really a fan of the vampire craze but you’re right that the Vampire Academy series is definitely worth it. It’s one of my favorite series!
Great list! 🙂
LOVED Bernadette! Sadness of Lemon Cake was “ok”. I’ll have to look over the others.
You picked so many great ones. I also love Morgan Matson and Kody Keplinger, and thought the Duff was hilarious. Definitely added a few to my tbr list from your post as well 🙂
Tell the Wolves I’m Home is one of my favorite books of all time!! I have no idea how I heard about it though. I loved Where’d You Go Bernadette too. Great list!!
After reading this list, I have added Tell the Wolves I’m Home to my TBR!
Hope you enjoy it! 🙂
I miss reading memoirs too!! I used to read all kinds of rock bios and other non-fiction as well, but sighhhh never enough reading time for allllll the books now 😦 Great list. I need to get my Sarah Dessen Collection on point. I only have like 5 of her books.
I loved The Duff movie and I’ll be reading the book soon for a challenge! 🙂
Hope you love it as much as I did! 😀
I loved Where’d You Go Bernadette, too! And I agree with you about Sarah Dessen. I don’t read much YA anymore but I’ve always loved her books. Just Listen is probably my second favorite; The Truth About Forever is my first.
Both are great books! 😀
Hi! Sarah Dessen for sure! She was recommended to me and it launched me into YA reading! Great list!
Great list! Second Chance Summer is the only Morgan Matson book I haven’t read yet, so I’m hoping to be able to read it soon! And I really have to give Sarah Dessen a try as well 🙂
It’s the only Morgan Matson book I’ve read…That needs to change! 🙂
I’d totally forgotten about Just Listen. I read that one on recommendation from the same person who recommended Changers on my list.
