    • I’ve been hearing a lot of praise for Code Name Verity lately. Definitely putting that on my wish list!

  • As usual, I had trouble thinking of these, but upon reading this post, I’m like, “Oooh, yeah, that’s a good one!” Great ideas!

  • There’s a book that I absolutely love but I fear that revealing that it has an unreliable narrator ruins the plot. I’ll give the hint that it’s the author’s first new YA novel in 12 years and that it has received many starred reviews and awards nominations.

    You by Charles Benoit is mind-bending — and not only because it’s written in the second person!

    The main character in The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp is like a contemporary Holden Caulfield (from The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger) so I recommend that readers maintain skepticism about his exploits.
