Hey guys! As I have read a lot during this period despite the various commitments, I would like to recommend books that I really enjoyed. Let me know if you have already read them or you intend to do so.

1. Lux book series

Obsidian is the first full novel of the Lux series, written by Jennifer L. Armentrout. It is told from Katy's point of view. When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. And then he opened his mouth. Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens. The hot alien living next door marks me. You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. If I don't kill him first, that is. her that she's seen two kids about her age going into the house next door, and that maybe she should try to talk to them. Upon introducing herself to the neighbors, she finds a shirtless Daemon Black, who looks less than amused by Katy's existence. The two immediately get into an argument and Katy retreats to her house. As Katy is strolling through the grocery store, she runs into Daemon's younger twin sister, Dee, who is extremely excited to meet Katy. She tells her to ignore her brother's ill temper and declares that she's happy to have a new neighbor and potential friend. Though unusual things begin to happen around her, Katy and Dee quickly become good friends as they talk about their backstories and lives while they garden together. Dee acts weirdly around some questions, but Katy tells her about her father, who died from cancer 3 years ago. The two are eventually interrupted by Daemon, who rudely warns Katy not to get close to Dee, saying "She’s not welcome in our house...” and "You don’t need to be friends with someone…someone like her ”. Dee pleads for Daemon to stop being a jerk." 'Daemon, don’t do this,' Dee whispered, her eyes filling with tears. 'Please. I like her.' She fears that Daemon has scared Katy away from being her friend, but Katy promises her that it isn't the case. The next day, Katy is washing her car, and Daemon appears. Dee has gone out of town to visit family, and she told Daemon to apologise and take Katy swimming. He is forced to comply since she has his car keys. Katy is surprised when Daemon takes her to a lake in a clearing of the woods near her house, and she is frightened when he disappears underwater for too long. Daemon tries to convince her that she didn't see him come up for air, but she knows something is off. On the way back, she is introduced as Dee's friend to Matthew, who brings an air of tension and tells Daemon that he thought Daemon "had this under control" and that he'd "make your sister [Dee] understand". And then the end.

Elise Dembowski doesn’t fit in. She spends the summer before her sophomore year of high school literally studying pop culture: the celebrities, the styles, the popular music. She hates it all, especially the saccharine, auto-tuned music. When it comes to music, Elise has standards. But she has come to the conclusion that, had she been more normal as a young child, she wouldn’t have become such an outsider. It may be too late to change her fate now, but she has to try. On the first day of school, she pulls on her skinny jeans and a tee shirt with a flattering neckline, slides a headband into her hair (the magazines say that headbands are in), and stands at the bus stop. Still, no one talks to her. But it’s early in the day, right?

4. P.S. I like you - Kasie West

Lily's dream is to compose songs. He writes verses wherever they happen. Even during the lessons that just can not digest, for example those of chemistry. At least until the day when the teacher, exasperated by his carelessness, disappears from his desk any object can distract her: everything but a sheet and a pen to take notes. But passion is stronger than everything. And so Lily begins to poke verses on the counter, hoping that no one notices. Someone however finds out. Someone who reads and adds words to his, on the desk. At every chemistry lesson. Three times a week. The one that is born between Lily and her mysterious interlocutor is a real correspondence, which excites her, gives her energy and pushes her to transform those sentences into song lyrics. How long can the magic last?

Saylor's greatest desire is to get sick, just like that, he thinks, whoever is next to her will notice it and will love her. He has the Syndrome of Münchhausen, in fact, and any excuse is good to get in touch with germs and diseases. So when her psychiatrist advises her to volunteer for self-help groups, she accepts with great enthusiasm: to get sick there is nothing better than spending time in the hospital. There Saylor knows a group of terminally ill boys and starts dating them. Everything is based on a misunderstanding - they think that Saylor is also very ill - but she has no intention of making him change her mind, because for the first time she feels comfortable with some boys her age. Among them is Drew, a beautiful boy, a musician, of whom Saylor gradually falls in love. To separate them is that tremendous lie, Saylor does not really have multiple sclerosis, but to unite them there is a very powerful force, which leads them to believe they have always known each other.
