Could you give us a little more information about the types of books you like to read? That makes it easier to make suggestions.

I can mostly suggest young adult books, but some do fit under what you've said.
For romance (teenage, not erotic) I suggest anything by Sarah Dessen. If you like things that are dark I would also suggest anything by V.C. Andrews but specifically Flowers in the Attic series and the Gemini series. The Escape from Furnace series is also really good, as is the Homelanders Series.

Women of the otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. The first book is Bitten. It has werewolves, witches, demons and vampires although vampires don't have a huge role.

The silent girls by eric rickstad is good.

Still Alice was good and has to do with real life stuff. Sad but worth the read.

I absolutely loved the Queen of the Tearling series, although still wait in on the third book...

It's about a girl who regains her throne but has magic and mystery and fighting and romance - it's really really good and I would definitely recommend

Re: book suggestions - August 25th 2016, 02:48 AM

There were several that I either couldn't put down or read several times

The Giver-Lois Lowry

It's Kind of a Funny Story--Ned Vizzini depression, suicide

Twisted-- Laurie Halse Anderson (suicide; may be triggering)

Miss Spitfire: Reaching Helen Keller-- Sarah Miller

Blindsided-- Priscilla Cummings

Thirteen Reasons Why-- Jay Asher

Any books/series by Melody Carlson They cover a variety of topics from a Christian perspective which wasn't really my thing, but they were still pretty good

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell is a really good love story, I just finished it I also really liked Far From You by Tess Sharpe, it's sort of a combination of a murder mystery and a love story.
