So this month's topic of monthly recommendations is Stand alone novels. Monthly Recommendations is a Goodreads group created by Kayla and Trina and you can check out that group here.
This was extremely hard for me because I read (and love) a lot of stand alone novels. So I've got quite a wide range of recommendations from Young Adult to Adult Fiction, But I highly recommend them all so hopefully you can find something new to read :)
Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
This book is a New Adult romance, and honestly if you're into romance of any sort, I suggest you give this book a go. Colleen Hoover is an amazing contemporary writer so if you want to start out with some New Adult this is a really good place to start. I don't want to describe the plot because Colleen Hoover's books are better going into knowing nothing about.
On the Fence by Kasie West
This is hoenstly one of the cutest YA contemporary books I have ever read. I also really enjoyed FIll-In Boyfriend by Kasie West, but On the Fence was even better. I read it last year and I have yet to find a YA Contemporary that has made me as happy as this book made me.
Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino
This is another fantastic example of a New Adult romance. It's got the perfect mixture of romance, tragedy, humour and it's just great. It reads like a movie and the characters are just extremely likeable.
First Love by James Patterson
I know James Patterson usually writes horror/thriller type books, but this is most definitley not one of those books. This is a YA contemporary novel. If Amy Roger's Epic Detour and The Fault in Our Stars had a baby, this would be it.
Landline by Rainbow Rowell
Everyone loves Rainbow Rowell, but it seems that everyone skips over this book and goes for Fangirl or Elaenor and Park instead. Landline is so underrated. It's got the contemporary feel to it, but it's also got some magic in there which just gives it a really amazing feel to the story. basically this woman who's marriage is in trouble and is staying at her mother's place, uses the Landline to call her husband, but instead she gets her husband from 20 years ago (when they first started dating), and it's just such an interseting concept and perspective.
Still Alice by Lisa Genova
In less than 400 pages, this book will break your heart, but completely change your outlook on life. I read this book 2 years ago and it still impacts me to this day. Such an amazing novel from the perspective of a woman who is developing early onset alzheimer's. There is a movie for this book, which was good but I highly recommend the book!
One by Sarah Crossa
This book is so unique, I have never read anything like it. It is about a set of conjoined twins who have to go to regular school, except the whole book is told in verse. It's such a quick read yet so emotional, I for one loved it. Get it? HAhA!
And that is all! Sorry I haven't been posting a lot lately. I've just started back at uni for my final year, so it's all a little bit cray at the moment! So thanks for sticking with me!
