All My Friends Are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman

All My Friends Are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman This is a book you can read easily in one sitting, and one that will leave you smiling. While reading this book, you are introduced to a range of different superheroes, though not superheroes like you would normally expect - these superheroes have seemingly mundane and normal powers. For example, The Perfectionist, whose power is quite simply doing everything perfectly. This is a seriously quirky and lovely novel that you just have to read!


Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma

Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma Wistful metaphors and dreamy language intertwine in this gorgeous book to create a seriously amazing story. 'Imaginary Girls' is about a young girl called Chloe who lives her life in the shadow of her bright, rebellious sister Ruby. When Chloe is sent away, however, everything changes and suddenly she has to find her own way in the world. This story will really inspire you, and is a truly beautiful read. I bet you’ll love it!

If you’re after a book which will make you giggle, cry, become inspired and even learn something, then you definitely need to get your hands on a copy of this. Lili Wilkinson has a really wonderful style of writing that will make you feel a vast range of emotions all at once - any book that can do that has got to be good!


Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson The topics explored in this young adult novel are quite confronting, as ‘Wintergirls’ is about an 18-year-old girl called Lia, who suffers from anorexia. That being said, it is written in such a way that is very accessible and easy-to-read. Lia discovers that her best friend, Cassie, has passed away, and this topic is dealt with in a unique and heart-wrenching way. You’ll definitely learn something from this book, and it certainly worth a look.

Famous Quotes

Lisey’s Story by Stephen King

Lisey’s Story by Stephen King If you love a good psychological thriller, ‘Lisey’s Story’ by Stephen King will be right up your alley! This is the scariest book I have ever read in my life, hands down. It is creepy and sinister, telling the story of Lisey, the wife of a deceased, famous author. As the story progresses, more and more terrifying things occur and the lines between real and imaginary start to blur. This book is certainly not for the faint hearted!


Twig by Elizabeth Orton Jones

Twig by Elizabeth Orton Jones If you’re looking for an easy, quick read, you have to check out ‘Twig’ by Elizabeth Orton Jones. Okay, so technically it’s a children’s book, but I guarantee anyone of any age will smile reading this! After I read ‘Twig’ for the first time, I lent it to my grandma and she loved it! It’s about a young girl who lives in an apartment, but creates her own world in the backyard behind her house. This book will have you smiling from start to finish!
