SBPT 2015: Patrick Castro from The Bookshelves


Welcome to the 7th stop on the Summer Blogger Promo Tour hosted by The Book Bratz!
After this we only have one more stop to go. I hope all you have enjoyed getting to know these bloggers.

This week I'm hosting Patrick Castro from The Bookshelves. We both decided that we would like to make a post about then 10 books we absolutely can't live without. You can check out my list on Patrick's blog here.

Take it away, Patrick.






Here is my list of my Top 10 Books I Can't Live Without!

1.) Paper Towns - John Green 
I looove John Green's book and no doubt this is one of my favorite books from him! So adventurous and fun, I love it. 

2.) The Ruby Circle - Richelle Mead
Absolutely one of my favorites from Mead's amazing, thrilling Bloodline series. The conclusion was perfect and hit the balance of action packed, to romance to suspense. 

3.) Looking For Alaska - John Green 
I can't believe I took forever to pick this one up, I literally just picked it up this summer. I loved everything about it. It opened a lot of new thoughts and the ideas in the novel were so fresh and new. Must read for sure, if you haven't picked up any of Green's novels!

4.) Insurgent - Veronica Roth
While Divergent was good, Insurgent just blew me away! So much action, emotion, and suspense in the pages it became one of my favs of all time!

5.) Dreamfire - Kit Alloway 
Dreamfire was such a unique book, and I always try to find new YA novels with new concepts or plot, and Dreamfire was no exception. It was unique and if you love dream traveling books or action books, this one is for you. 

6.) All The Bright Places - Jennifer Niven 
Picking this one up in the beginning of the year, I absolutely loved the plot and idea of the novel. Thinking of Green's TFIOS with Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. Perfect combo! 

7.) Vanishing Girls - Lauren Oliver
One of my first Lauren Oliver books and definitely not my last. Vanishing Girl was such an explosive and thrilling novel, it opens a lot about family dynamics to identity to the goodness of people. A must read!

8.) Say What You Will - Cammie McGovern 
McGovern's novel does YA contemporaries justice! It was such a good, heartfelt book I found myself right next to the characters and their emotions. 

9.) Side Effects May Vary - Julie Murphy 
Murphy's novel was very TFIOS-esque and I think that is why I enjoyed it a lot. It devolved a lot about finding love despite your circumstances. 

10.) Bloodlines - Richelle Mead
Ever since Mead's Bloodline series, I have not read any other vampire series that does it any better. The first book just blew me away and you must pick this one up!
