(Making me open up my nook...)
The Poppy Wars by RF Kuang.
It's the 1st in a new series and it has a very interesting world developed. Heavy on the military references has a bit of magic, but takes influence from twentieth century China, and throws in an underdog protagonist with spunk.

Any Sara J Maas book.
I started with Court of Thornes and Roses, 4 books. But The Glass Throne series was pretty epic as well, 7 books. If you're Under 18 don't read though. They have some rather adult moments.

Summoner Trilogy Series by Taran Matharu.
Very boy book. Again kinda military based, with magic, but not Harry Potter Magic.

Ok last one...
SpiritWalker Trilogy by Kate Elliott.
Cousins raised as sisters in a world that advanced to the Steampunk age (industrial age) and stopped. Where families with magic are the ones in charge, and people are into the idea of the French revolution (though it was only America that did revolt). The story centers around one House trying to take out the revolutionary leader and gaining power by any means necessary.
If you're into these books they are awesome and exciting, but if you're not they drag on.

@Beky it's an amazing series. The way certain character developments were handled was like super well done and believable. Even in the later books when there is a lot of building up it goes by fast so the slow parts aren't slow for long. I think I read the whole series in 3 days because i could not put the books down. (And I hadn't done that since like Harry Potter)

The second series though. Oooh. I was hooked on the author after that one. She had a character have a breakdown and I literally had a breakdown with them and was like crying.

I want to recommend a psychological terror book that is so good!! And what's more, it has a really charismatic reading to it and by the end of the book, you'll end up speechless! I really enjoyed my time reading this book, so here's a picture of both fronts since both are amazing! (the one made here in my country and the original)



The Boy Who Drew Monster by Keith Donohue
"Ever since he nearly drowned in the ocean three years earlier, ten-year-old Jack Peter Keenan has been deathly afraid to venture outdoors. Refusing to leave his home in a small coastal town in Maine, Jack Peter spends his time drawing monsters. When those drawings take on a life of their own, no one is safe from the terror they inspire. His mother, Holly, begins to hear strange sounds in the night coming from the ocean, and she seeks answers from the local Catholic priest and his Japanese housekeeper, who fill her head with stories of shipwrecks and ghosts. His father, Tim, wanders the beach, frantically searching for a strange apparition running wild in the dunes. And the boy’s only friend, Nick, becomes helplessly entangled in the eerie power of the drawings. While those around Jack Peter are haunted by what they think they see, only he knows the truth behind the frightful occurrences as the outside world encroaches upon them all."

I must say I’m a great fan of the « Myron Bolitar » series and loved J.K Rowling detective books.

For the fantasy, I just finished the « Magnus Chase » series of Rick Riordan and I’m now reading the second book of Patrick Rothfuss « Kingkiller Chronicles »

This is on my list of must read!
I just signed up for kindle unlimited (free for 3 months!) and I have so many books on my list. I have such a hard time limiting myself to reading only a couple of books at a time.
Right now I am reading David Baldacci’s One good deed and Dean Koontz The crooked staircase.

I highly recommend
The long dark tea time of the soul
The hitchhikers guide to the galaxy
Both by Douglas Adams

Also
The last kingdom series by Bernard Cornwell

My favorite book series of all time is Warriors. It's such a fantastic story and journey man. Yes, it's about cats which is a bit weird but the setting and elements make it very intriguing, making it seem natural.

Other great books imo are Lost Gods, and Graceling. Lost God's is a journey about a millennial going through purgatory so he can come back to the living and destroy a great evil. Amazing battles, the characters are static for the majority of them, they're still great and compelling. You'll never stop wanting to read more.


Graceling is a story about this girl with a quirk like My Hero Academia but different. She lives in a world where a few ppl have special powers and these powers are more passive than they are active. It shows a great story about a strong, and independent young lady going through this mission of sorts with other main characters to defeat this man who has a way of making ppl believe he's a good person wen he's actually evil. Great read, give it a try.

I got JoJo part 2 & 3 book and it is AMAZING
I may be the only one here not reading or watching that story. In a scale of 1 to 100, how amazing it is? I may give it a try one of these weekends.
