1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Now hazel has been diagnosed with a tumor which causes her to join this cancer support group where she meets Augustus waters. This leads to a gorgeous change in her life now the characters are teenage-like the dialogues are also very teenage-like but they’ve been shown to have a little bit of maturity because of what they’ve been through. Now if you’re looking for a sad and cute love story then this is the book for you it’s filled with both pranks and poetry. It’s a New York Times bestseller and there’s a movie that’s been made on it and I’m also told that there’s a Hindi movie that’s going to be made on this shortly and I read this book in one go I’m pretty sure you’ll feel like doing exactly that.
2. Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
A New York Times bestseller a movie that’s directed by Angelina Jolie and now also adapted into a book for young adults with over 100 beautiful illustrations. The story begins by a military plane that crashes into the Pacific Ocean and the pilot Louie Zamperini comes out and is faced with miles and miles of ocean leaping sharks, a sinking raft thirst, and hunger. Now going back Louie Zamperini as a kid was a rebel but he went on to become a US Olympian champion and then join the US military during the Second World War. The story is very gripping about this rebel who turns into a champion and later on turns into a survivor. Louie eventually lands up in a Japanese camp as a prisoner of war but he could not be broken. Unbroken is both moving and inspirational. Now you can watch the movie but I highly recommend that you read the book because it’s gripping and the details that it gives you fills you with adrenaline and inspiration.
3. 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher
You may have seen the Netflix adaptation of thirteen reasons why but the book is really exciting and you must read it. Now Hanna Baker has gone she’s committed suicide and clay Jensen who’s one of her friends and very fond of her gets this bunch of tapes and as he starts listening to them he discovers that they were 13 reasons why Hanna Baker committed suicide and 13 people responsible for her death. Now Clay goes on to discover who these 13 people are and what those 13 reasons are and that is when the story unfolds with layers of surprising connections and high school dynamics and it grips you as you read along. It also is a bit thought-provoking where you wonder that even one word that you say to somebody could have such a deep impact on that person’s life. It’s a quick read and you might be able to finish it in a couple of days.
4. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Ready Player One has once again been turned into a movie by Steven Spielberg. Now Ready Player One is set in 2045 where most of humanity spends almost all their time on this virtual reality world called the Oasis and when the founder of the Oasis James Halliday dies he leaves behind a fortune of a trillion dollars and the ownership to the Oasis to a secret someone. Now he leaves riddles and puzzles throughout the Oasis which leads you to an easter egg and the first person to find an easter egg wins all of this. The story begins with meeting Wade who’s the central character of the book and it’s a fascinating read because it takes you into the backstories not only of Wade but also of the creation of Oasis. During his journey wave meets Artemis his ladylove and together they go about finding the Easter egg. If you find the beginning of the book a little slow push through because it gets very exciting pretty quickly.
5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Now every year two children a boy and a girl between the age of 12 and 18 years from 12 different districts participate in The Hunger Games and only one of them survives. Now, this is a punishment that has been given to the 12 districts by the Capitol because these twelve districts tried rappelling against the Capitol earlier. It’s interesting because each one of these districts has its resource which is unique and the Hunger Games is set in a very reality-tv kind of way. Now this year it’s Katniss Everdeen Stern to go and compete with all these children it’s a crazy action pack kind of book it’ll keep you on the edge of your seat and you might just be in a rush to finish it in a few days. Once again there is a movie for you to go and watch but I highly recommend that you read the book because it is a far more detailed reproduction and you’ll get a first-hand feel of the anxiety and the fear and the horror that the children face as they play those Hunger Games.
