Asher, Jay, 1975-
My favorite book. Ever. This one will be hard to top. I don't know if I'll ever read a better book. This book just really changed the way I think. The things you do to people, that you might think are harmless, could possibly ruin their life. FOREVER. If you haven't read this book yet, I highly suggest you pick it up. And by highly suggest I mean: You. Have. To.

But holey crapamoley this book proved me W-R-O-N-G! I enjoyed it so much! You have to read this book!

The Thief Lord
Funke, Cornelia Caroline
The Thief Lord is about two orphan boys, who are brothers, whose parents died. Their mean aunt and uncle only want to adopt the youngest of the two, Bo. Prosper, the older brother, and Bo don’t want to be separated so they run away to Venice, Italy. Once in Venice they join a group of orphans/ “thieves”. The leader of the group, Scipio, calls himself the Thief Lord and, so the other orphans think, is an expert at pulling off heists. Meanwhile Prosper and Bo’s aunt and uncle have discovered the boys are in Venice and hire a detective to look for them. It's a really good book and great for all ages. Highly recommend.

This book was very similar to The Treachery of Beautiful Things. While this book was good, I enjoyed The Treachery of Beautiful Things better. The main character, Meghan Chase, was kind of wimpy and was always, always, getting into tight spots and having someone else come to rescue her. But otherwise, I really enjoyed this book!! It was exciting and I love the romance. I would definitely recommend it.

We were liars
Lockhart, E.
We Were Liars was a lot different than I was expecting it to be. I was expecting a cute, fluffy, contemporary book, but what I got was a book full of mystery. Basically, it's about this wealthy family, the Sinclairs, who spend every summer on their own private island. Cadence, the main character, spends most of her time with her 2 cousins Mirren and Johnny and Johnny's friend Gat. And together they make up "the Liars."

I put off reading this book for so long, but honestly this book is incredible, fantastic, awesome, and amazing. The romance is gorgeous and everything is so perfect and finished in the end. I've never, ever read a book that made me feel this way. It's so amazing. You've got to read The Treachery of Beautiful Things.

Delirium
Oliver, Lauren, 1982-
Delirium is about a future society where they belive that love is a disease called "amor deliria nervosa", or just "the deliria". The main character Lena is excited to get her "procedure", where the basically remove part of your brain so that you are unable to love. However, in most cases, you aren't supposed to get your procedure before you're 18 otherwise there could be side effects. In some cases, usually when someone catches the deliria, they break that rule and give them the procedure early. Obviously, there are "resisters", who don't agree that love is a disease. The resisters usually live in the Wilds and are called Invalids. It is a really good book and I would definitely recommend it.
