1. Six of Crows, by Leigh Bardugo

THE best book of all time. It has everything you’d ever need. Action, raw emotion, criminal activities, a heist, perfect character development, expansive world building, suspense, backstories that are both heart-straining and traumatic. It’s a sequel to the Shadow and Bone series, but it can be read as a standalone as well.

2. Crooked Kingdom, by Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows’ sequel and another banger by Leigh Bardugo. It carries on where Six of Crows ends and provides a heart-breaking but perfect end to the series.

3. Paper Towns, by John Green

One of many great books by John Green, it fits in the thriller and young adult genre. The plot centrals around Quentin, the protagonist, and his mysterious neighbor who goes missing before graduation. I’d recommend it if you enjoy reading mystery and high school shenanigans. My personal favourite was the road trip segment.

4. The Strawberry Picker, by Monika Feth

While this is a German translated book, the writing is simple and I adored the characters and plot. You could read it if you enjoy mystery and angst. The plot centrals around a murderer who feigns to be a strawberry picker, and three girls who become intertwined with his life.

5. Throne of Glass.

The series is HUGE, but if you like fantasy and world building, you’ll like it. The book centrals around Celaena Sardothien, an assassin made prisoner, who struggles to atone to her new life in a castle.
