Book tastes

Young Adult Contemporary, Fantasy, Dystopia, mystery/suspense, heartbreaking novels, classics like Charles Dickens and Isabel Allende, fairytales. Some preferred authors are: Adam Silvera, Veronica Roth, J.K. Rowling, John Green

Don't get this!

Although I mentioned Veronica Roth, I do not want the divergent trilogy, ANY other book by her (including Four, which relates to the Divergent trilogy) is acceptable. Also no ebooks please.

Other notes

I am not super picky and will most likely read anything!

Comments/suggestions

BerlinBibliophile: I'm thinking Rivers of London covers both Fantasy and Mystery, Feed covers Suspense, Dystopia, and Heartbreaking Books, and Four she asked for and covers YA. But I am still open to suggestions! (Fri, 30 Nov 2018 04:16:29 -0500)

BerlinBibliophile: Dear Shayrayyy,

Happy holidays! I hope you have a great time and enjoy the books I picked out for you.

Rivers of London is a really great combination of a crime novel with fantasy, and one of my favourite books. Reading it always makes me want to visit London.

Feed is a book that I just couldn't put down when I read it, and I think Mira Grant explores the "new normal" after the zombie apocalypse beaautifully, with amazing characters and an examination of journalism and politics in a changed world.

Persuasion is one of my favourite Jane Austen novels, an absolute classic, and my first choice of her books for the winter months. I love its sombre mood and themes of forgiveness and redemption.

Finally, I've never read Divergent, but you seem to really like it, so I hope you enjoy Four just as much.

Have a good new year with lots of books in it!

Best wishes, Miriam (BerlinBibliophile) (Wed, 05 Dec 2018 06:08:23 -0500)
