Welcome book lovers to another installment of the world of books here at The Latest Official. Get ready to take a journey to other worlds and devour every word you read. That's right guys, prepare to be amazed by our Top Fave books this year so far. Enjoy.
The First book on our list, has to be
Holes by Louis Sachar
Holes is such a beautiful book. The main character faces many difficulties that are so hard to get your head round but still he perseveres on. Who would have thought that digging holes that were as wide and deep as your spade would build your character. Here at the Latest we freaked out at how awesome the author was at linking so many of the stories and morals in the book. It was utter brilliance and we sure enjoyed every minute of it. SO are you up for this amazing adventure? Check it out!!1
The next book is a series that we finished,
Noughts & Crosses
This is a must read series. Basically, Noughts are White people and Crosses are Black people. Unlike today's history where Black people have suffered for years, in this book, Malorie Blackman has created a world where the
White people(noughts) are treated like they are worthless. Its an awesome love story that breaks your heart with every book you pick up in the series. It is full of so much emotion that you wont resist a drop of a tear. Every single book in this series is beautiful in its own way. You have to read Sephy's story to know how much is at stake here. Malorie Blackman is a dangerously good author who you have to be weary of.
The next book is
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
When you read this sad, sad, sad story, you cling to every word with hope. Seriously, the emotion that is embedded in every chapter grips you with both hands and drags you along with the main character. The beginning itself is shocking. Literally the first words that you read draw you in to realize what you have put yourself into. Gayle Forman is an author who can relate easily with his audience and slowly get you hooked. Mia has a choice to make and you wont know what it is until you read this book.
Our next book is a series:
The Infernal Devices
Here at the Latest we prefer this series over the Mortal instruments even though they are set in the same world. We love the emotions and choices that are brought up with each book. The images at the front of the books represent the main characters. Tessa is the girl on the third book. Jem is the guy on the first book and Will is the guy on the second book. Jem, Will and Tessa throughout the whole series are caught in a love triangle. Jem is sick and Will is cursed. They are both Shadowhunters who find themselves in love with a girl who no one knows what she really is in this supernatural world. Tessa has the ability to change into any person by just toughing something of theirs. How awesome. Cassandra Clare brings together every known creature to the imagination in this one creepy world. Find out if Tessa can discover which one of these creatures she is?
The next book is
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future. This was an awesome retelling of the cinderella story. You dont know how well you know the fairytale until you read this book and new events make you think. This is the perfect modern twist to this fairytale and we loved it. Marissa Meyer is a genious. Who would have thought a vicious disease would have brought the prince and cinder together. And guess what, their first meeting wasnt at a ball, it was in a mechanics shop where the prince was in disguise and wanted cinder to fix his android. Take a chance and travel into a world where getting to the moon can happen in less than 2 minutes.
The next book is the beautiful conclusion to the Divergent series
Allegiant by Veronica Roth
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Here at the Latest, we were truly shocked at what we saw beyond the Fence. Guys, prepare yourselves for a heart clutching ending and a tear jacking love story. Its awesome how the author made Tris adapt to any situation the government threw at her. We loved how she over looked all that broke her and still kept fighting on. The book starts off with less violence than the first two books but it soon picks up towards the middle. We loved this series so much that even up to now we still can't admit some of the happenings that went on. It's almost like you know its happened but it breaks your heart so much that you dont want to believe it. Thats how Allegiant was for us. Veronica Roth also includes many quotes in this book which we loved and doesn't hesitate to surprise us. Are you ready to know who the Allegiant are?
Now another book we loved was
Angel by L.A Weatherly
Ordinary mortals yearn to catch a glimpse of one of these stunning beings and thousands flock to The Church of Angels to feel their healing touch.
But what if their potent magnetism isn't what it seems? Willow is a halfangel which is apparently impossible. Full angels feed from the life energy of a human leaving the human starstruck with no idea that they are now in danger of catching fatal diseases. Do you feel weak sometimes? Do you feel tired? Then maybe you are a victim of an angel that has left you with ANGEL BURN. Willow has no idea what she is until an Angel Killer called Alex is sent to kill her and he sees her angel floating above her when she was asleep. Alex tells all this and somehow she believes him. There is just something that is so beautiful about how the person sent out to kill you ends up falling in love with you then helps you to defeat the beings that sent him. This book is something new and raw that young adult has never seen before. A world full of angels and only one Half angel destroys them. L. A Weatherly is a very teasing author. She will tempt you with a lead and then snatch your hopes up with every page you turn. Now that's what we call a good start to a series. Do you think the angels are good for us or are you against them?
