TGIF (2): Book I would Recommend to a Friend

Hey guys! Today I am doing a TGIF post hosted by Ginger over at GReads.
Today’s question: Which book from the last 10 you’ve read would you recommend to a friend?
Hmm.. This is a tough one. I’ve read a lot of good ones lately! But I think I would recommend I’ll Be There by Holly Goldberg Sloan. I truly enjoyed this one. If you want to see my full review, you can check it out here. But here was my short and quick “main idea” of the review:
I’ll Be There could be considered your typical middle-high class girl meets poor boy, and they fall in love kind of story- but it isn’t. All I can say is that if you are looking for a truly beautiful albeit heart wrenching at times story, PLEASE pick this one up to read. I was amazed. 
 I'll Be There

Yowza, I agree – tough one. For the majority of my friends, I would recommend Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. Published over 10 years ago, the award-winning novel is a quick, witty, sad, and honest story about a regular girl with a big burden, all while juggling the pressures of her lonely first year of high school. And while I often tire of the drawn-out clichés in YA books and movies (even though I also secretly love many…Mean Girls, hello), Anderson hit that “awkwardness” right on the head while keeping true to the themes. The main character is funny and flawed, but so real.


Have you read either of these books? What did you think? What would you recommend?
  1. I haven't read any of these books but I love the cover for Speak.

  2. I heard many great recs about I'll Be There, I think I will need to bump it up to read sooner!! Speak looks very haunting, but it's basically a classic, i I will read it soon too:Dnew follower♥My TGIF & FF((:-thank you&come again.
