Reading List #1

This is our first recommended reading list!!!  We will put out a new one every Friday.  All the books on this list are flawless and majestic and the reading of these books should become your #1 priority from now on.

The Cold Awakening Trilogy 

1. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys: This is about a 15-year-old girl named Lina who is taken to a labor camp in Siberia under the rule of Stalin. 
2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: The love story of two teenagers with terminal cancer - but, the characters' words, this book should not be mistaken for a 'cancer story.'
3. Before I Fall By Lauren Oliver: A girl who dies in a car crash finds herself repeating the day of her death until she figures out what really important. 
4. On Writing Well by William Zinsser: This should be every writers' Bible.
5. Gone With The Wind By Margaret Mitchell: While very long, a timeless classic about southern views throughout the Civil War. 
6. The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins: I don't even think this entry needs a caption...
7. If I Stay by Gayle Forman: A gifted high school-age cellist loses her entire family in one tragic car crash, and has to decide whether it's worth it to go on living.  
8. The Cold Awakening trilogy by Robin Wasserman: A story about the divide between humans and robot humans set in a future where the human consciousness can be downloaded.
9. The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman: A beautiful story set in an alternate world where witches rule the skies, bears can talk, human souls take the form of animal daemons and ordinary people struggle to understand the nature of magical elementary particles called Dust.
10. Every Day by David Levithan: This book explores themes of identity, sacrifice and love at its purest through the eyes of a being who wakes up every day in the body of a different person.
