anonymous asked:

can you please rec me some of your favorite stand-alone novels? thanks :D

yeah dude! i don’t read too many standalones because i’m really greedy when it comes to books and am always chasing sequels like “noooo 300 pages wasn’t enough, give me more” but these are a few of my faves:

  • dark places and sharp objects by gillian flynn
  • dangerous boys and dangerous girls by abigail haas
  • on the jellicoe road by melina marchetta
  • you against me by jenny downham
  • the secret history by donna tartt (are you guys sick of me rec’ing this yet b honest)
  • living dead girl by elizabeth scott
  • forgive me, leonard peacock by matthew quick
  • vicious by v.e. schwab
  • the coldest girl in coldtown by holly black
  • crank by ellen hopkins
  • unteachable by leah raeder
  • we all fall down by robert cromier (i read this in high school and it’s so fucked up it’s actually been banned in most schools but it’s a must read, same with tunes for bears to dance to and the chocolate war, actually most of cromier’s books are banned so you should probably just read them all anyway)
  • deathless by catherynne m valente
  • in cold blood by truman capote
  • where you are by j.h. trumble
  • the dreamers by gilbert adair
  • some girls are by courtney summers
  • the hollow dolls by m.t. dahl
  • middlesex by jeoffrey eugenides
  • the truth about alice by jennifer mathieu

upside down sad face:

  • my friend leonard by james frey
  • a monster calls by patrick ness  (imagine mufasa, beth greene, dobby and the dog from i am legend all dying at the same time and that is this book )
  • the god of small things by arundhati roy
  • wasteland by francesca lia block
  • speak by laurie halse anderson
