Updated on June 9, 2017

1. Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

This popular book-- recently turned into a major motion picture-- has swept the nation, capturing many hearts along the way. The story follows a young Madeline Whittier, who is seemingly allergic to life. Encapsulated in her house for years, she has come accustomed to missing out on the world beyond the airlock. However, when swoon-worthy Olly moves next door, isolation is no longer an option. After inevitably falling in love, Madeline is forced to ask herself whether a life without experience is a life worth living at all.

Warning: This beautifully-written novel is filled with quirky humor, heart-wrenching romance, and the adventure of a life time.

2. Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines

Maggie Carleton has experienced tragedy that has left her unwilling to speak. When her aunt and uncle take her under their wing, she is moved to stay with them in the small town of Lawton, where not much is more important to the teenagers than football and field parties. It is there that she happens upon West Ashby, a talented football player with a few demons of his own. He chooses Maggie to share his secrets with, confident that she won't repeat them to anyone else. But when she replies, it sparks a connection that brings them closer to each other and the acceptance of the harsh realities life holds.

So instead, she allows him to stay. Soon, she's giving up her vodka in exchange for his touch and spending all night talking to him in whispers. But when she discovers the truth about Nate's past, she is challenged with helping him face his problems, as well as coming to terms with her own.
