The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black is amazing. This book is labeled under teen, but I think that the story is for everyone. A fantasy adventure that has you gripping the book to find out how the characters will survive. 

You can listen to the eaudiobook through eMediaLibrary (Libby).




A Good Girl's Guide to Murder

Five years ago, high school student Sal Singh murdered his girlfriend before killing himself. At least, that's what everyone in town believes. Pippa Fitz-Amobi isn't so sure. Even though the case is closed, she dedicates her capstone senior project to clearing Sal's name and uncovering the truth. The more she snoops around, the riskier things become. Someone in town doesn't want Pippa to expose long-kept secrets, and they'll stop at nothing to bring her down. A Good Girl's Guide to Murder (2019) by Holly Jackson is a fast-paced, engaging, and jaw-dropping teen thriller. The ending is so good you'll never see it coming!

This is the first in a series. Check out Good Girl, Bad Blood (2020) and As Good As Dead (2021) for even more heart-pounding thrills.

Available as an eaudiobook and ebook on eMediaLibrary (Libby). 


Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Jacob is nearly sixteen and virtually friendless with little direction in his life when a sudden traumatic event changes everything. He embarks on an adventure to a mysterious island to try to find answers to his family's past. This young adult novel, which includes unusual period photos, sets an eerie tone that will give you goosebumps.

The Extraordinaries

The Extraordinaries by T.J Klune focuses on Nick, an average everyday teenager who is openly queer and happens to have ADHD. In a world where there are normal people and Extraordinaries (people with superpowers) Nick struggles with feeling of inadequacy, a feeling that he tries to solve by becoming an Extraordinary himself. The story was full of relatable situations as Nick navigates through all his emotions and deals with the people in his life. Nick himself is just a really relatable character and I can see a lot of myself in him, which made the story all the more fun. This story has all the cringe involved with being a teenager, a lot of humor, a couple sad bits, and a good sprinkling of a cute romance. My absolute favorite thing about the book was the plot twist! It took the story in completely different direction in the best way possible. There's also a sequel!!!
