Back to School Reads

With summer ending and school beginning your schedule may become hectic, reducing your reading time. Now if you are a fan of reading, like I am it may pain you to cut down on it for school. Whether it be extracurricular, homework  or work in general finding time to read becomes difficult. Most of these books I am suggesting are shorter novels but are just as good as any other. The others are fairly long be very easy to read. All of the books I am recommending are teen fiction. I hope you find one you like!

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher



“Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker—his classmate and crush—who committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life.”










Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell



“Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life – and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.”










Looking for Alaska by John Green



“Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words–and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the “Great Perhaps.” Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young.”









Angelfall by Susan Ee




“It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back.”

 We are all Made of Molecules by Susin Nielsen



“Thirteen-year-old Stewart is academically brilliant but socially clueless. Fourteen-year-old Ashley is the undisputed “It” girl in her class, but her grades stink. Their worlds are about to collide when Stewart and his dad move in with Ashley and her mom.”
