Title:  The Hunger Games Trilogy
Author:  Suzanne Collins
Genre:  Science Fiction / Young Adult Literature
Brief Synopsis:  Katniss Everdeen lives with her mother and sister in District 12 of Panem, post-apocalyptic North America. All 12 districts are controlled by the tyrannical Capitol. Every year a boy and a girl between the ages of 12 and 18 are chosen from each of the districts to compete till death in The Hunger Games, which is televised. 
Comments: The theme is shockingly brutal. When I first heard about it, I never wanted to read it. Finally I caved and boy, I'm glad I did. Yes, it is violent, but the whole series is so much more.. there are so many themes that make you think about true freedom, love, forgiveness, selflessness, survival.

Title:  Elsewhere
Author:  Gabrielle Zevin
Genre:  Fantasy / Young Adult
Brief Synopsis:  Liz is a 15 year old girl who dies in a bicycle accident and wakes up to find herself traveling on a ship. Here she meets new people and discovers so many new things about life after death.
Comments: We all wonder at one point or another if there's anything after death or is it just plain old the end. This is a very interesting take on just that... what happens after we die?

Author:loreth anne white
Genre: Romantic suspense
Brief Synopsis:"You're not just a job anymore."
It was supposed to be a 72-hour mission, in and out, until Brandt Stryker got stranded in the arid African plains with predators before him, a killer at his heels and an exotic princess by his side. Dalilah Al Arif stirs his blood, makes him crave things he'd lost long ago—but she is off-limits, promised to a sheik.

Dalilah's wedding contract stipulates she must wed before her 30th birthday—just months away. It's a duty she accepts. But in the arms of her handsome protector, she's torn between her sense of duty and honor, and her freedom. And as the terrorists close in, she fears the most dangerous creature in the savannah is Brandt himself….

Title: Paper Towns
Author: John Green
Genre: Young Adult/Contemporary
Brief Synopsis: "Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life - dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge - he follows.

After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues - and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer Q gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew."

Comments: It's got everything--comedy, romance, road trip! Plus John Green is my favorite author!
