Mistborn: The Final Empire

Brandon Sanderson

$35.99 $33.11

Bradon Sanderson's books will forever be classic reads as they are so beloved. This book, in particular, is great for an introduction to the higher fantasy genre. It has a heist plot and how much more do I really need to say?

Vampire Academy

Richelle Mead

$11.99 $11.03

This series has pretty much everything you could ask for. A magical school setting, paranormal creatures, age-gap romance, slow-burn romance, mystery, action and training, and royalty. If none of that convinced you, after raving about this series, my dad decided to read this series and the spin-off series because he enjoyed them so much.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, 1

J. K. Rowling and Mary Grandprรฉ

$26.99 $24.83

This includes the entirety of the series.

The Hobbit, Or, There and Back Again

J. R. R. Tolkien

$10.99 $10.11

A classic and for good reason.

The Angel Experiment: A Maximum Ride Novel

James Patterson

$10.99 $10.11

I can only speak on the first 5 novels in the series but they were excellent.


Kristin Cashore

$12.99 $11.95

Everyone always recommends Graceling by this author but I preferred this companion novel about human monsters who can be identified through hair color.

Poison Study

Maria V. Snyder

$16.98 $15.62

Truly ahead of its time in representation. The characterization is also unforgettable and so engaging that this might be your next binge read.
