Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Of course I love the whole series, but I wanted to choose my favorite of them all and that is most definitely Goblet of Fire. I love the Triwizard Tournament setting and challenges, we get to learn about the wizarding world beyond the halls of Hogwarts, the Quidditch World Cup is so interesting, and it is the turning point of the whole series since Voldemort returns in it.
They Both Die In The End
A more recent read of mine, They Both Die At The End follows two teenagers on their last day of life in a world where you get a phone call telling you that you’re going to die. It’s an interesting story that focuses on the concept of death and how we react and deal with it.
Eleanor and Park
Eleanor and Park has the coveted title of being the only book I have ever read cover to cover in one sitting. Having a plus-sized protagonist was really meaningful to me and the love story doesn’t go to cliches. The ending is both heartbreaking and heartwarming and holds a special spot in my heart.
The Hunger Games
I do enjoy the whole trilogy, but the first book, The Hunger Games, is the one I would truly call a favorite. I’ve been a fan of dystopians for a while so this perfectly fits that genre for me. And going through this scenario and the games in Katniss’ head is so interesting. I was entranced by this book when I first read it.
The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby gets a spot on this list for a very particular reason. In high school, I never read required books and was a frequent reader of SparkNotes instead. The Great Gatsby was definitely a SparkNoted book in my teens. It is the only book that I have tried to read again since leaving high school and I really enjoyed it as an adult. I definitely had a better understanding of the story and themes as an adult so it left a much better impression the second time.
Looking for Alaska
I first read Looking for Alaska at a very tempestuous time in my life where my mental health was horribly low and I wasn’t getting the help I needed. Of all the John Green books I have read, this is the one that stuck with me and felt some sort of connection to that really made me think. Now I can look back on that book and remember all I have been through to get where I am now.
