Book Recommendations

Welcome to Book Recommendations! I will be submitting my own recs but also hope to get submissions from other people for me to post.

Rules:

Please only post books you have read. I will post everything submitted except the following which will get rejected:

-Anything that's sole purpose is ADULT material
-Anything that's sole purpose is a message of hate
(if I discover something I put up is hateful, I will delete it)

And ANY of the Harry Potter series OR Twilight Series. WHY? Because everyone has already heard of these books.

Books that are recommended will be listed with who rec'd them, whether it's a tumblr user or anon.

I am hoping later to have the books sorted into different categories so that people can find recs in the genre they are looking for with ease.

I will also reblog time to time people's posts on books or book sets, to spread the recs.

Also I hope this will be a way for people to meet other people who love the same books.

Thanks for stopping by and send me your recs!

The History of Love

written by Nicole Krauss

This is hands down one of the best books that I have ever read. I don’t see it just as a book, but as a literary masterpiece, opening my mind to countless different concepts and ideas which had never occurred to me before reading. Krauss manages to interlock two levels of fiction - the novel within and the novel without. (We get passages from the novel written by Leo Gursky, a main character, inside the novel we are reading). A truly intriguing book.

agent-em asked: Do we send you recommendations by ask box? I am new to this blog, and I think it is a great idea!

Sure! Or the submission as you sent it. Thanks for that, I need to catch up on this blog!

The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks

*note: This book contains adult scenes/language, but the plot makes it well worth it*

This trilogy is about a boy who grows up in a neighborhood known for its violent gangs where children have to join these gangs just to survive. Wanting out, a young boy named Azoth earns an apprenticeship with famous wetboy (like an assassin) Durzo Blint. Little does he know that even though he is out of one world of shadows, he has entered another, and its even harder to escape.

I love this series because of the characters and the growth that they show. Each character has a distinct personality and complex relationships. All of the characters change over the course of the trilogy, especially the main character. This series shows the effects of bad deeds on the soul, and the emotion shown is so beautiful. Do you want comedy and tragedy all in one? Try this series!image

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

This book is about a girl who has a curse has a gift. Who’s a monster more than human. Her touch is lethal is power.

The Magician King by Lev Grossman

So I’m about to highly recommend the second book of a series while heavily discouraging you from reading the first book. While this may seem somewhat unusual, I have my reasons. Lev Grossman’s The Magician King is an excellent novel, full of memorable characters and a fantastic world grounded in reality and is exponentially better than The Magicians, the book it is a sequel to.
