"Inkspell" by Cornelia Funke
This book has 3.91 stars and is the second book in the "Inkworld" series. It was made into a movie staring Brendan Fraser in 2008. I loved the first book in the series, "Inkheart" growing up. (fantasy/adventure/young adult).

This book has 4.07 stars and is the second book in the "(Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #2)" series. The first book in the series was made into a movie, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children in 2016. (paranormal/young adult)
"The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini
This book has 4.26 stars. I had to read this book for my ALA class in high school and found it fascinating. I didn't think I was going to like it but the importance of the story and the brilliant writing make it a classic. This book was made into a movie in 2007, you can see it here on IMDB. (historical fiction).
"The Doll People" (Doll People #1)by Ann M. Martin
This book has 4.02 stars. I also loved this book growing up. It was one of the longer books I read in elementary school, but the plot is so interesting even now it would be a fun read. (middle grade/fantasy).
"Wanted" (Pretty Little Liars #8)by Sara Shepard
This book has 4.14 stars. "Wanted" is a part of the Pretty Little Liars bok series, which if you aren't familiar with the famous TV show I highly recommend it. I have watched more of the show than I have the book but they are a great guilty pleasure! IMDB (show link). (mystery/young adult).
"Daughters of the Moon", Volume 1(Daughters of the Moon #1-3)by Lynne Ewing
This book has 4.08 stars. I saw this book and thought it looked interesting. With my spirituality I love things that have to do with the moon and the supernatural so I thought I would give it a try. (fantasy/young adult).
I hope you enjoy!

Comment below and let me know what books you would recommend!
"History is all you left me" by Adam Silvera
This LGBTQ+ novel was a great story for grief, love, and lust.
The story follows Griffin and Theo who are two teenagers finding themselves and each other.
Without giving too much away I can say it was raw and was a story I would have love to read in high school. Every coming of age story (even about grief) is about a hetersexual couple. It was so refreshing to read something other than that.
I identify as queer and the dynamic of queer relationships in book is under represented in my opinion.
The writing style is also unique with one chapter being in the present and the next being in the past. It makes the story harder to get into but I appreciated the fact we were able to feel Griffin's pain and the dynamic of his relationships from both perspectives.
This book reminded me of a LGBTQ+ "Looking For Alaska" by John Green, so if you enjoyed that book I would recommend this one.
