Someone to Love by Melissa de la Cruz
Olivia feels the pressure to be perfect—get good grades, play the part of the politician’s daughter, and catch the eye of an older boy. But the need to do whatever it takes is a constant struggle. It will take nearly losing her best friend and even her life for Liv to learn that loving herself is far more important than earning the world’s approval.
Runebinder by Alex R. Kahler (The Runebinder Chronicles, Book One)
Magic has returned to the world. Now once-human monsters called Howls prowl abandoned streets, guided by corrupt necromancers and the all-powerful Kin. Only Hunters have the power to fight back in the unending war, using the same magic that ended civilization in the first place. Tenn is a Hunter who realizes he’s become a pawn in a bigger game.
You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon
Despite being twins, Adina and Tovah have little in common besides their ambitious nature. But one thing could wreck their carefully planned futures: a genetic test for Huntington’s, a rare degenerative disease that slowly steals control of the body and mind. When the results come in, one twin tests negative for Huntington’s. The other tests positive. How can they repair their relationship, and is it even worth saving?
Plague Land by Alex Scarrow (Remade, Book One)
