    The Alchemyst

    The Alchemyst - Michael Scott

    The first book in the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel (not to be confused with Harry Potter) is a story of twins who discover they have unique powers, and they are bound to either destroy or save. Their seemingly innocent bosses are actually the immortal Nicholas Flamel and his wife. This book is a great fantasy book with a similar feel to Rick Riordian's Percy Jackson series. This book is filled with danger and excitement and is a great read.

    A Court of Thorns and Roses

    A Court of Thorns and Roses - Sarah J. Maas

    A sister series to the Throne of Glass series. A dramatic thriller following a human woman who accidentally kills a fae. In this world, a treaty has been made: she can either die, or join a stranger at his state in fae territory. This book is full of suspense and will have you wanting more. This book is an equal in my opinion to Throne of Glass. A similar fantasy thriller, you'll enjoy this if you enjoyed Throne of glass.

    In a society in which free speech is a crime, a man name Winston has dangerous thoughts. In this dystopian future, three communist super-states exist. He lives under the super-states' leadership, Big Brother. This thriller focuses on his attempts to rebel. This book is very thought-provoking, and extremely well-written. A good read that although is short is definitely a must read.
