Long Reads!

I do enjoy my quick, easy reads, but it is also nice to fully indulge in a book for several hundred pages. If you too enjoy long reads then here are a few recommendations!

lady-midnight-by-cassandra-clareLady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – This is a pretty thick book, being almost seven hundred pages long, but it is absolutely fantastic. You do have to read all of Cassandra Clare’s other books before you read this one, but trust me, it is so worth it. Lady Midnight follows a group of Shadowhunters (half human half angel) who try to uncover the mystery of Emma Carstairs’ parents’ death, but it turns out to be more than they bargained for. A story with a great cast of characters and a thrilling plot!

SaintAnythingSaint Anything by Sarah Dessen – This book is a little over four hundred pages, and that is quite a lot for a contemporary, but since summer is here it is a definite read. Saint Anything is about a girl named Sydney who is used to being in the shadows, unseen and unheard. But when her brother does something that puts a spotlight on the entire family, she finds that she can’t outrun it. I just flew through this book, and I definitely believe it is one of Sarah Dessen’s best work.

anemberintheashesAn Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – An Ember in the Ashes is a fantastic book that was easily one of my favourite reads of 2015. It was action packed, and had some drops of romance here and there. An Ember in the Ashes follows two perspectives, Laia and Elias. Laia is on the run after her brother was taken by the Empire, and Elias is trying to escape the Empire. We follow these two misfits as their paths intertwine and they face a series of deadly challenges. It is a gripping read that you will devour whole.

throne-of-glass-sarah-j-maasThrone of Glass by Sarah J Maas – In this series, the books just keep getting larger and larger, but I am okay with that. Throne of Glass follows a badass assassin, Celeana Sardothien, who is being given the option to leave the slavery camp she is trapped in forever, or work for the king. She jumps at the offer only to be faced with a series of battles to the death, in order to become the King’s personal assassin. This is a book with lots of epic fight scenes, and scenes that will keep you on your toes and wanting more!

the-unexpected-everything-9781481404549_hrThe Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson – For a contemporary this thing is HUGE, being over five hundred pages and all. The Unexpected Everything follows a girl named Andie who had her whole summer mapped out. She had a great internship lined up, was on the way to have a quick summer romance, and was ready to have epic adventures with her friends. That is, until her father, a popular congressman, is involved in a political scandal and her plans dramatically change. This is another fun, summery read that I definitely recommend since summer is around the corner!
