Paranormalcy by Kiersten White


Book Summary: "Sixteen-year-old Evie's job is bagging and tagging paranormals. Possessing the strange ability to see through their glamours, she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. But when someone—or something—starts taking out the vamps, werewolves, and other odd beasties she's worked hard to help become productive members of society, she's got to figure it out before they all disappear and the world becomes utterly normal. Normal is so overrated." 

Memento Nora

Close your eyes and remember the worst thing that has ever happened to you. Now imagine you could go to a Therapeutic Forgetting Clinic, take a little white pill, and forget it ever happened.

Nora chooses not to take the pill. This is her story.

Fans of the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld might like this book.

You may already be familiar with Libba  Bray.  She made Mad Cow Disease seem funny in Going Bovine and mixed mystery and fantasy in the Gemma Doyle Trilogy (Start with A Great and Terrible Beauty).  Her latest, Beauty Queens, is HILARIOUS and unlike anything else you'll read this year.

Pretty Little Liars


ABC Family’s smash hit Pretty Little Liars is back in full swing!  If you’re like me, you can’t get enough of the drama, mystery, snarky texts, and hookups happening in Rosewood, and you’re dying to figure out who “A” is! Did you know the show is based on a series of books by Sara Shepard? The first one, called Pretty Little Liars of course, can be requested here.

And while you’re waiting for more creepy Jenna and dreamy Toby, you can also check out some of these similar books:

Kate Brian's Private series is here.

Zoey Dean's The A-List is here.

Lauren Conrad's L.A. Candy is here.
