YA Book Review- Romantic Reads

It’s getting colder, which means it’s the perfect time to snuggle up with some good romantic stories! Our guest reviewer today is Sofia, who has not one but TWO great books to recommend!

Reboot by Amy Tintera


“Start the count down for Reboot by Amy Tintera, an interesting, romantic, action-filled, futuristic book about humans who are given a treatment for the deadly KDH virus- but, like Wren Connally, they come back to life as a Reboot, becoming more robot like than human the longer they are dead. Reboots are trained and sent on missions to capture humans or the monsters they turn into after coming back to life. Wren (the longest dead girl to ever exist) is ordered by the Human Advancement and Re population Corporation to kill her too rebellious trainee Callum Miraculously she starts to have feelings for him and runs away with him trying to save his life before the HARC’s deadly experimental drugs take over his body by going back, risking her life and the ones of others to get the antidote and saving the lives of hundreds of Reboots.”


Hanging By A Thread by Sophie Littlefield

“Among all of the romantic detective books in libraries, there are few like Hanging By A Thread by Sophie Littlefield with a teenager like Clare who has a blessing (or curse) to see the pasts of people through their clothes. After moving back into a now paranoid little town called Clare Night, where they still have not found the missing bodies from the two previous Independent Days, she will find out why those people disappeared and who did it…but she might be next.”

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

A great nonfiction book is called In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. The story goes back to November 15, 1959 where in a small perfect town in Kansas four innocent members of the Clutter family were murdered in the worst way. Not only does Truman write about the details of the homicide, but he also relived the steps taken by the strangers to discover what possessed them to do it.
