A book or series with a twist you didn't see coming
Passing by Nella Larsen
This is one of my favorite underrated classics. It's so good and it's such a fast read. I highly recommend you check it out, the ending is so good.
A book/series with more than one protagonist
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffery Eugenides
This one is really interesting because there are five main characters that you don't know anything about. Really interesting novel lay out.
Book/series set at school
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
This series has a lot of great elements. It has an American protagonist who goes to a boarding school in London, it has supernatural elements, and the protagonist Rory is so funny.
A book/series you didn't like by an author you love
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
I love both Green and Levithan but didn't love this book. It wasn't bad by any means, I did enjoy it, but it wasn't as great as I thought it would be.
Book/series with positive female friendship
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Bradshares
This book is the best female friendship book I have ever read. I loved this series so much when I read it in middle school, and I really should reread it. This series is so great, and the female friendship is so powerful and heartwarming.
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
Book/series with a parent protagonist
Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler
This is a really great fictional account of Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald's life together, and one that I really enjoyed. It was accurate, and it made these iconic figures into real people.
Book/series with a problematic love interest
Hold on Tight by Abbi Glines
Oh man! Do not get me started on this book. I can not believe how awful and toxic this relationship is. I can't even begin to list the problems with this book, but the biggest and most shocking problem was domestic violence.
Tales of Angria
Book/series that reminds you of your childhood
Bloomability by Sharon Creech
I read quite a bit of Sharon Creech as a middle schooler, but this one was my favorite and really stuck with me for a long time after I read it. This is a really great coming of age and self-discovery story with a great female protagonist.
