Super Six Favorite Books to Recommend to Others
At my work and in my group of friends, I’m known as the one to go to for book recommendations. All I have to do is ask them what genre they want to read, and I can usually search through my Goodreads list of read books if I don’t have something right off the top of my head. But we all have a few books that we love so much that we just have to tell everyone about them–no matter how long ago the book was published–that we think everyone should experience the joy of turning those pages. Here’s the six books that I tell people about most when they ask “What should I read next?”
Katie McGarry’s Pushing the Limits is one of those books that breaks your heart with such great story telling while letting you remember first love. The writing is emotionally raw and touching. Just reading this one book is great for those who like contemporary romances with a healthy dose of angst. Plus, there’s several more books to read in this series and they’re still coming out. (Goodreads / Amazon / Joint Bookworm Review)
Warm Bodies is the zombie book that I recommend to people who don’t normally read the genre. It’s not your normal zombie book, especially since it’s written from the point of view of an intelligent zombie. And there’s the bonus of an excellent movie adaptation to watch too. (Goodreads / Amazon / My Review)
Gillian Flynn has been writing those deliciously dark thrillers that I love, but she really hit it out of the park with Gone Girl. Featuring two of the most unreliable narrators and despicable main characters that I’ve ever read, this missing wife mystery is a page turner. This one’s also being made into a movie that’s slated for release this October. (Goodreads / Amazon / My Review)
When someone wants something a little out of the ordinary, I always recommend Jenny Pox by J.L. Bryan. Featuring a teenaged girl who is isolated and teased because her touch can kill, it follows her as she discovers that she isn’t the only person in town who was born with strange abilities. This ones full of great writing, angsty teens, and nice horror. The kindle version is free and the audiobook was recently released from Audible. (Goodreads / Amazon / Heather and Pushy’s Review)
For my friends that enjoy young adult books that are smart, witty, and they don’t mind a strongly sarcastic main character, I recommend Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. With ghost hunter Cas’ journey to find the elusive ghost, this book is strong on sarcasm, supernatural references, and snark. It’s a definite win for most people. It doesn’t hurt that he falls in love with the person he least expects himself to, and it’s so great to read. (Goodreads / Amazon / Joint Bookworm Review)
I’ve recommend the Charley Davidson series to so many people since I discovered these books by participating in a read along with Danny. People who love private detective mysteries will enjoy these, and there’s also the paranormal romance side to draw you in too. Smart, witty, sarcastic, hard to guess mysteries, and hot romance–this books has it all. Plus there are four more books with several more still to come. (Goodreads / Amazon / Heather and Danny’s Review)
