Mistborn is a great fantasy read. Incredible world-building. Really enjoyed the magic aspect and the descriptions. Would recommend to fans of Harry Potter-like stories. Only nitpick is that the main character (Vin) is a bit of a Mary Sue.
Lydia Lee, a 16 year old in Middletown, commits suicide. Her family grapples with how this could have happened. It turns out everyone, including Lydia, has their own internal demons that don't come out until it's too late.
A German foster child named Liesel Meminger is The Book Thief. The story of her experience during the war. Maybe I'm just numbing to all of these WWII novels but I couldn't muster up as much relation to these characters as the ones in The Nightingale and Beneath a Scarlet Sky
Story of a kid named August who has a disfigured face who goes to school for the first time. It's definitely a kid's book. I appreciated the message a lot and it was well-told, but I think I would have enjoyed it much more 10 years ago :)
