Nyx’ YA books recommendations

Hello guys! Happy October…well, happy almost-end of October! It’s that time of the year when you like to stay at home and watch movies under a blanket with a nice cup of tea. A time when you like to wear big fluffly socks. A time when all the trees are losing their leaves and you enjoy the sound they make under your boots. What are your favorite things about autumn? 

I’m back today with some awesome recommendations in my two favorite genres. Yeah…I know you all have out of control TBR but I’m nice like that, I love to share!

  1. Omg I love this thread.
    Pretty sure I have a copy of American Panda on it’s way, but I don’t read a lot of contemporaries, so I’m a little nervous.
    I want to read All of This is True, Awaken, The Belles and A Thousand Pieces of You.
    I agree that Delirium and Matched are very similar.

  2. These are some brilliant recommendations Nyx. 🙂 ❤ I haven't read many of these books but I really enjoyed Uglies when I was a teenagers, and The Belles is already on my TBR list so I guess I need to bump it up a little.
    I also have the Delirium trilogy still on my to-read list, so I feel like I should add Matched as well. Fingers crossed these are books I can get around to sooner rather than later. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Beth! 😊 Well if you enjoyed Uglies, you’ll love The Belles! The story, the setting, the characters…it was a really good book 😁 Oh my…you need to read the Delirium trilogy asap! It’s one of @drizzleandhurricanebooks all-time favorites, I bet she’ll scream at you to read it already 😂 Matched is also a great story, hope you’ll like it as well. Happy reading 😁

  4. Wonderful post, love! I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve only read American Panda and the Fifth Wave! (I know, I DARE call myself a YA lover! Shame on me! I fear the YA gods shall smite me …) I’ll definitely add some of these to my TBR! I’m a bit hesitant to read Delirium, because I loathed Matched. But perhaps I’ll like it! Fingers crossed! Thanks for the recs, beautiful! ❤

    1. Thank you so much, glad you enjoyed it 😊 Hahaha, no worries there is still plenty of time to read all those amazing books 😁 Oh, I hope you’ll still give Delirium a chance and that you’ll like it better than Matched 😊


  5. These are such good recommendations, lovely! I probably won’t be able to fit them in my TBRs for the rest of the year but maybe next year 😀

    I can’t really explain what I love about Autumn but I guess the palette, for one, is GORGEOUS, and I love all the leaves falling around and covering the paths ❤ The not-too-cold-not-too-warm weather, which is perfect for me, and the prospect of sipping Pumpkin Spice Latte, the pumpkin and apple recipes, Halloween and all that awesome stuff make it one of the best (if not the best) months! ❤

    1. Thank you so much, glad to make your TBR grows 😁 Yeees, you’re so right about all those things! I guess I’m just not a fan of autumm because I know winter is coming haha 😅

  6. I recently just got When Dimple Met Rishi and All of this is True so I am actually really looking forward to being able to read both of those soon! I want to read American Panda eventually. I liked Matched back when I read it but I don’t think I’d like it if I read it now… so I’m not sure about reading Delirium. Ho hum… I did like The 5th Wave but I also didn’t continue on in the series so I’m not sure about trying Enclave. I might give it a go though! Great recommendations x

    1. Yaaay, that’s awesome! Hope you’ll like them 😁 American Panda was such a cute read, you should add it to your TBR 😉 Oh, well..maybe you’ll be in a mood to read it later on. Yeees, I still need to finish the 5th Wave, I loved the first one so much. Enclave is not as good in my opinion but still enjoyable 😊 Thanks for stopping by 😘
