May B. by Caroline Starr Rose gave me all the feels. It’s beautiful and has a happy ending but the middle of the book is a real tear jerker!
Two picks: I kind of loved The DUFF by Kody Keplinger in spite of myself, you know? Some of the main characters choices are questionable at best. Despite being a rabid fan of the rest of the series, The Heir by Kiera Cass stars a main character who is pretty difficult to like.
Two picks: The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey is probably the closest I get to reading horror stories. This one was intense! The Girl on The Train by Paul Hawkins was a holding you by the seat of your pants kind of read.
Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson is a book that will have you stomping your feet, saying, “That is not okay!!!” Which is, you know, the goal.
