The Wrath & the Dawn by RenÃ©e Ahdieh This is a tantalizing story of dangerous love set in a fantastical Middle Eastern world. I love the strong, bold female character, Shazi, and the epic romance she falls into. This is unforgettable and will keep you reading late into the night.
Kassidy Voinche, @KassidyVoinche 2 P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han The sequel to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is so adorable! It follows Lara Jean, a teen girl trying to navigate her way through the drama of high school and boys. The story is so relatable because Lara Jean experiences a lot of firsts, including love. Regan Perusse, @PeruseProject 3 The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski The Winner’s Crime is the second book in a trilogy, and it surpassed my expectationsâ” I never stopped holding my breath between chapters.
If you love suspense, romance, and the complexity of royal families, you should definitely pick up this series. Kristina Horner, @ITalkToSnakes 4 More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera This debut deals with many topics, such as race, class, and mental health, yet it never feels over-the-top. It will have you curled up on the couch for hours, anxiously flipping the pages until you reach the climax, which turns everything you thought you knew on its head. Raeleen Lemay, @padfootandprongs07.
