Dear Mr. Potter: Letters of Love, Loss and Magic: Lily Zalon

“Dear Mr. Potter: Letters of Love, Loss, and Magic” features hundreds of letters and pictures from Harry Potter fans. Individually, these letters and pictures tell stories of how fans have been impacted and inspired by Harry Potter. Together they serve as proof of what all Potter fans know so well: the Harry Potter series changes lives.

I’m a huge Harry Potter fan, and I think this would be a really interesting read 🙂

Illegal: Bettina Restrepo

From a new Latina voice comes the moving and heartbreaking story of a 15-year-old Mexican girl’s life as an illegal immigrant in Texas. 

I’ve never read a book about illegal immigration before, so I think this sounds like it would be a good read, and something different for me to pick up!

Unwind: Neal Shusterman

The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child “unwound,” whereby all of the child’s organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn’t technically end. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state is not enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape and to survive.

I’ve been hearing amazing things about this book, and the plot sounds very interesting!
