As you know I love seasons and according everything to them. I have been recommending you books based on seasons since 2018, and I’m not ready to stop yet. When last year I focused on three different moods you can have for each time of the year, for 2020 I decided to focus on age ranges.
Therefor, after my middle grade recommendations, here are three young adult novels to read this winter!
All Evie wants is to be normal. She’s almost off her meds and at a new college where no one knows her as the girl-who-went-crazy. She’s even going to parties and making friends. There’s only one thing left to tick off her list…
But relationships are messy – especially relationships with teenage guys. They can make any girl feel like they’re going mad. And if Evie can’t even tell her new friends Amber and Lottie the truth about herself, how will she cope when she falls in love?
As I am new in the bookish blogosphere, I only heard recently of the Top Ten Tuesday topics (I know, I’m living on another planet) and since I only live thanks to lists, I had to keep it somewhere to finally join someday – and now is the time.
If (like me) you don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, it was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. A list of topics is up on that blog and every Tuesday you can create your own list, following the topic announced for the day, or just go with your imagination.
For the 13th of February, the topic was “Love Freebie” and after doing many researches to get exactly what it meant, here is what I have guessed from it: you basically have to choose any topic linked to “love” (favourite romances, favourite book boyfriends/girlfriends, favourite kiss scenes etc) and work on it.
For mine, I decided to switch the subject a little bit: I do not read a lot of romance books anymore and while I was doing a list of all my favourite love speeches, I realised I only listed heterosexual couples and I didn’t want that. I also felt frustrated because for me, “love” means so much more than just a couple – it includes friends, family, hobbies etc. So after thinking for a very very very long time, I remembered this quote from the last book I read, which is Tash Hearts Tolstoy, and it was: “It was love at first line.”
This is why today I am presenting you the top ten books I fell in love with at first line.
