For this, I’m going to have to go with the same book as Daria: The Sword of Summer, by Rick Riordan. While it most definitely is not the most typical book beginning it is overall hilarious, and perfect sets the stage for the rest of the book and for the entire trilogy!
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares is a really fun book that is perfect to read around the holidays! It was recently turned into a netflix show, which is how I first discovered it, but when I read the book in December, it was really amazing and festive!!
I’m going to have to steal Daria’s answer for a second time here, with Nico di Angelo. Nico is the most precious, amazing character, who must never be harmed.
You Have a Match, by Emma Lord is perfect for this prompt. It takes place at a summer camp, and is sort of a parent trap-like story. Although I read it in January, it is especially good for the summer!
Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, by Chris Grabenstein was one of my favorite books in 3rd grade, and the whole concept is so fun!! It literally takes place in an amazing library, and honestly, it would be so amazing to go to the library!
I don’t read many classics, but one that I have read and loved is Anne of Green Gables. Anne is such an amazing protagonist, and the whole story is really fun to read. I’ve only read the first book, but at some point I do want to read the rest of the series!
Dress Coded, by Carrie Firestone is an amazing book that deserves so much more love and hype in the book community! It’s middle-grade, and takes place partially in the form of a podcast. The book is about and 8th grade girl who starts a movement within her school challenging the unfair and sexist dress code, and one that I definitel recommend!
Tweet Cute, by Emma Lord is a rivals to lovers romance full of delicious food, twitter ward, and family drama. It is full of fluff, fun and entertaining to read, and is one of my very favorite contemporary books!
Far From the Tree, by Robin Benway is an incredible book, that centers around family, and the importance of family. It is about three siblings who are all in different homes, either being fostered, or who have been adopted, and follows them in their own lives, and as they begin to get to know each other for the first time. It is a very powerful book, beautifully written, and overall incredible.
The Priory of the Orange Tree is one of my favorite books, but at almost 900 pages, it was pretty intimidating at first!
I actually haven’t finished reading Perfect on Paper yet, and I’m about 60% through at the moment, but it’s already so amazing, and has wonderful representation. The main character is bisexual, and there are also lesbian, transgender and gay main characters. The way that the LGBTQ+ representation is written is really well done, and the story overall is hilarious and entertaining!
These Violent Delights is a book that has a lot of hype, and in my opinion, it deserves every bit of love it gets. It’s a Romeo and Juliette retelling set in 1920’s Shanghai, and is a fantastic book!
