I've just picked up a teaching contract for next year and I'm looking to build a little class library! Would love some recommendations of books for 14-15 year olds, thanks guys 💕

hermyknee The Percy Jackson books are always popular, and my reluctant readers seem to like pretty much anything by Jason Reynolds! @TheFunkyBookworm is a great person to follow for YA recommendations! So is @CoffeeNBooks @IheartYA @That-Bookish-Hiker and @JoScho 12mo
hermyknee Congrats on your new position!!! 12mo
IheartYA Where to start? Hunger Games, Divergent pop to mind. I will look at my Goodreads and give you a thorough list later. 😊👍 12mo
hermyknee One of my favorites 💖 12mo
TheFunkyBookworm Check out #YAWednesday .. it‘s been on a hiatus but you will find some great recs there! 12mo
CaliforniaCay Children of Blood and Bone, Perks of Being a Wallflower, It's Kind of a Funny Story, Love and Gelato, Turtles all the Way Down, Speak.... 12mo
CoffeeNBooks Congratulations! Thriftbooks is a great place to get used books, and if you're a teacher you get a discount when you buy 20+ books at a time. It's where I get most of my books. They have pretty good prices. They're running a discount right now through Thursday- 20% off when you buy $20 worth of books. I have several book suggestions, and I asked my students today (12th graders) and they suggested some books, also. 12mo
CoffeeNBooks Harry Potter series, The Princess Diaries series, The Hunger Games series, the Divergent series, the Kingdom Keepers series, any of the Twisted Tales, any of the series by Rick Riordan, anything by John Green or Jason Reynolds, The Outsiders, Nearly Gone, Nearly Found, and Ready Player One. 12mo
CoffeeNBooks I get a lot of my book suggestions from the Florida Teen Reads list each year, a list put together by the Florida Association for Media in Education. It's a list of high interest books for teens. #englishteacher #teachersoflitsy 12mo
CoffeeNBooks @hermyknee Thanks for the tag @hermyknee! 😊 12mo

So happy to have met the amazing (and hilarious) Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman at the Obsidio launch this week! Poor Amie had hurt her wrist but was still signing away!
If you haven't read The Illuminae Files yet seriously get on it because it is easily one of the best series I've ever come across 😍

Wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this one because I really didn't like We Were Liars. I'm finding it a little more interesting than WWL but the way it moves backwards in time instead of forwards is seriously messing with my head 😣

This book! 😍😭

The last 50-100 pages had me full on ugly crying and I just fell in love with Finch 🐦

A super readable but important look at mental illness and life after losing someone.

🌟🌟🌟🌟

Krinak This book had me ugly crying at 2 in the morning! I also think it's a very important book for mental illness. Glad you loved it too! 2y

Congrats @erinreads and thanks for doing such an awesome giveaway!!

I'd love to read Eliza and Her Monsters or Burial Rites 😍
I've heard so many amazing things about Eliza and Her Monsters and Hannah Kent (author of Burial Rites) went to my uni so my English tutors talk about her all the time and I'd love to see what her writing's like!

Got hooked this morning and stayed up til 1:30am Adelaide time to finish it! The world building was awesome and I really loved the way the old stories were intertwined with the main story. Awesome pick for my first (and possibly last cause it's so damn expensive for Aussie's) FairyLoot!

Congrats on 2.5k @abbsinwonderland!!!

Whenever I'm going through a rough time it's this guy right here who gets me through (pictured here with my weirdo dog Mo, who doesn't love being held)

I'd be lost without him! ❤️ (Both of them actually, Mo may not be great at cuddles but he's a funny dog 😂)

Okay but THIS BOOK!!!! The ending KILLED ME and I'm so desperate to read the next one which is sitting right on the shelf because I got half way through this incredible book and ran out to the store to get the next two in case I finished tonight which I now have at 12:30am Adelaide time but I have been banned from reading and told to "go to sleep" because I have "things to do tomorrow" and SEND HELP I MUST KNOW WHAT HAPPENS
