Favorite Singles

Here are my Top 10 standalone books.
A standalone book is one that is not a part of a series. (This is hard for me — I love series!)

  1. Looking for Alaska by John Green
    Some books are just lifechanging. That’s the only way I can describe it. For me, that is essentially any book by John Green. He is an amazing author, this was an amazing book, and I just have no other words to describe it!
  2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
    This is a timeless book, reminiscent of The Catcher in the Rye. I read this book back in middle school and it has remained a favorite ever since. The movie, which was released recently, did a great job mirroring the book. I don’t ofen reread books, but this is one I will definitely read again.
  3. The Fault in our Stars by John Green
    Yep, two books by the same author. I don’t feel bad about it one bit. John Green is amazing, and so was this book. I read it in about 4 hours on the day it was released, and even have an autographed copy.
  4. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
    Like most people, I loved this book and it’s in my top 10. It’s absolutely timeless. People of all ages can read and enjoy this book until the end of time. Not much to say about this one that hasn’t already been said!
  5. The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it forever: I’m a sucker for books that show how seeming unrelated people can intertwine and impact each others’ lives. The concept of this book is amazing and Mitch Albom loves to pull on the heartstrings without being too sappy.
  6. Prep by Curtis Sittenfield
    Ever since I read this book, it pops into my head as being my “favorite book.” It made such an impact on me back in early high school. It’s a great story about coming of age that anyone can relate to. I love books where people head off to boarding school, for some odd reason. This book is smarter and less fluffy than the rest that fall into that category. I loved watching Lee grow up.
  7. The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
    This is a more recent addition to my list of favorites. I loved meeting the characters and hearing their individual stories, as well as uncovering how they were all connected. This was a book I absolutely could not stop reading.
  8. The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
    To be honest, all of Sarah Dessen’s books blend together for me. I love the concepts, storylines, and her style of writing…but I never remember which of her books I’ve read already! However, all of her books were very important to me for a certain period of time. This was my favorite book by her at that time.
  9. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
    Books about the afterlife fascinate me. I am a strong believer that everything happens for a reason; every single decision we make impacts our life path in ways we couldn’t even dream of. This book shows what happens when a popular teenager dies in a car crash. She relives the day of her death over and over. Every time, she makes different decisions until she learns what her purpose is.
  10. Sweet 16 by Kate Brian
    This is another one of those books that I read forever ago, but has stuck with me. I read this when I was about 16 and just really enjoyed the plotline. Not to mention, Kate Brian is one of my favorite YA authors.
