🌷 I hope you’re having a great day. Today I bring you some recommendations from my favorite stand-alone books, there are a lot of them so I’ll be making these recommendations every Friday for the next weeks showing only 5 books in each post to make it more orderly and cause I want to recommend to you all my favs stand-alones for you to get to know them and maybe even you want to add them to your TBR!, that would make me super happy. Besides, who doesn’t want a good stand-alone sometimes, right?🌷
You can find my previous Stand-Alone Recs here:
I hope you enjoy my recommendations and as I always say, I would love to know yours. I have 4 more recommendation post if you’re interested:
Guys!, I have 6 more books to recommend, so I thought I could recommend 3 of them in this post and the next friday would be the last one, where I’ll recommend the other 3.
I would love to continue doing this type of post some time, I have alot of stand-alone books that I haven’t read yet so I hope to read more in the coming months and if I enjoy them return to my recommendations post.
I’m so glad you enjoyed them, I’ve received beautiful comments about it so thank you so much 💕
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will be busier still.
By her brother’s graveside, Liesel’s life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger’s Handbook, left behind there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordian-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor’s wife’s library, wherever there are books to be found.
But these are dangerous times. When Liesel’s foster family hides a Jew in their basement, Liesel’s world is both opened up, and closed down.
In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.
Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all – popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.
Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She’s getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she’s falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.
But Cassie is still missing, and the truth about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory – someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?
