In the mood for fun? Here’s some to try:
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab — fantasy, magic, suspense, heroes, non-heroes — it’s all seriously good fun. If you like magical worlds plus a bit of mystery mixed with magic, you won’t be able to put this one down.
The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen — also fantasy, also amazingly good, but a very different story. This one is about a young queen trying to take back her kingdom. There’s magic, there’s suspense, there’s some interesting flashbacks to another world, and there’s a lot of good reading.
Popular, a Memoir: How a Geek in Pearls Discovered the Secret to Confidence by Maya Van Wagenen. This one is a true story that hits at every teen fantasy–becoming popular. Maya runs across an old manners guide from the 1950s in a thrift shop. Inspired by the book and her somewhat dismal social status, she decides to spend a year of her life following the manual to see if she can become “popular.” Her results are often funny and sometimes awkward but, through it all, she learns that she has more confidence than she thought, that kindness leads to friendship and that dressing in pearls actually can be fun. Highly recommended!
