Radio Silence by Alice Oseman
Radio Silence is every reader’s fantasy. You start reading the book and are completely sucked in from the first page. And before you know it, you’ll have read a large portion of the book. Frances, Aled, and a podcast called “Universe City” are central to the plot of Radio Silence.
Radio Silence will be a breath of fresh air for individuals who are tired of reading traditional romance novels because it is not a love story. Yes, you would expect it to become one, but the author makes it plain from the start that Frances and Aled are not going to fall in love. The book delves into the enchantment of platonic relationships and queerness. Isn’t it intriguing?
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
This book, set in Nazi Germany at the start of World War II, follows the story of Leslie, a little girl who is moved to a new home because her mother cannot afford to support her. Her younger brother dies while she is relocated to a new home, and she steals his first-ever stolen book.
Liesel Meminger is a foster kid outside of Munich who makes a modest livelihood by stealing when she comes upon something she can’t resist: books. She learns to read with the help of her accordion-playing foster father and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids and with the Jewish guy trapped in her basement.
Award-winning novelist Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time in wonderfully written writing that burns with fire.
Leslie has nightmares about her brother’s death on a daily basis, and she and her new father have resolved to read that book as it is the only link to her brother. This story is told from the perspective of death; towards the end, we learn to admire a character in the story.
Not Here to be Liked by Michelle Quach
Eliza Quan is the ideal candidate for the position of editor in chief of her school newspaper. That is until ex-jock Len DiMartile decides to run against her on a whim. Suddenly, her extensive credentials are meaningless since inexperienced Len—who is tall, beautiful, and male—appear to be more of a leader.
When Eliza’s frustration is expressed in a viral essay, she finds herself sparking a feminist movement she never intended to start, caught between those who feel she is a champion of gender equality and those who believe she is simply shouting misogyny.
In the midst of this mounting tension, the school invites Eliza and Len to work together to exhibit politeness. But as they get to know each other, Eliza becomes further trapped by a terrifying realization: she might be falling for the patriarchy’s own face.

The world has been through a lot recently, which may be a question in many people’s thoughts. If you’re feeling anxious about the current situation, read this book to find calm.
Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
Alex Claremont-Diaz was presented as the American equivalent of a young prince when his mother became President. He is handsome, personable, and brilliant.

And when the tabloids obtain a photograph of an Alex-Henry confrontation, US-British relations deteriorate.
True love isn’t always diplomatic, as Casey McQuiston’s Red, White, and Royal Blue demonstrate. Family, state, and other controllers adopt a damage-control strategy: creating reconciliation between the two rivals. What begins as a phoney, Instagrammable connection deepens and becomes more hazardous than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret affair with a surprisingly unpretentious Henry, who threatens to derail the campaign and upend two nations, raising the question: Can love, after all, rescue the world? Where can we find the strength and bravery to be the persons we were born to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors show?
