    Book Recommendations?

    Aloha!

    I need your recommendations! I just finished reading The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead and am in search of my next great read. I also just recently read and LOVED You by Caroline Kepnes and The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. I recently read and strongly disliked In a Dark Dark Wood by Ruth Ware.

    Some of my favorite books include The Goldfinch, Dark Matter, and Shantaram.

    If you have any recommendations you'd think I'd like I would SO appreciate it!

    I also recommend for you guys:
    What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding by Kristin Newman
    When Breath Becomes Air by by Paul Kalanithi
    House in the Sky by Amanda Lindhout
    Queen of the Night by Alxander Chee

    Re: Book Recommendations?

    Hello,

    The last awesome book I read was called Curve. It was a fiction about Greek gods and goddesses. Particularly the tale if Curve the nymph daughter of Helios God of the Sun. It was a great read I blasted through it.

    Currently I am reading le cercle secret it is a American author translated into French.

    Thoughtful Topic

    Hi Kristen Cucinott,

    The only book that I know (and have actually read) on your list is "When Breath Becomes Air" by Paul Kalanithi. That was a fantastic book and I 100% cried through that book. Based off that book, I can make a couple recommendations that you may like:

    - The Time Traveler's Wife - fiction, time travel, romance, love, life, relationships, reality, growing up, stages in life
    - The Firebird Trilogy - 3 books, inter-dimensional travel, multi-verse theory, love, relationships, parents, love triangle, adventure, saving the world
    - Wild Company - How Banana Republic went from a $1500 startup in the 1970s to a multi-billion dollar company bought out by GAP

    Cheers!

    Re: Book Recommendations?

    Hello!

    I have not read any of the books you've recommended, but I'll be sure to check them out! I've read some pretty amazing books, and I would recommend the following:

    1) All The Bright Places by Victoria Niven - This book will shatter you. It's a rollercoaster of emotions. I read this book for the first time almost a year ago, and I remember staying up well past SUNRISE to finish this book. To this day, reading pages of it still gives me chills.
    2) The Kingkiller Chronicle (Trilogy) by Patrick Rothfuss - This is a trilogy, but the third book has yet to come out. This is a world of heartbreak and disaster, a book about a boy trying to be a man in a big world that's trying to bring him down. My description sucks, but I swear to you, I cried and laughed and mourned during this book. If you do not fall in love with Kvothe (the main character), then you better reread the book because you've definitely skipped some chapters.
    3) Storm and Silence by Robert Their - This book caused me to die of laughter. Lilly, the main character, is just a wonderfully-hilarious person, and the story is just plain beautiful. I originally read this book of off Wattpad, and it's still there. This is an ongoing series and is definitely worth the read. It's also on Radish.

    Have fun!
