Revolution cover
Two girls, two centuries apart
"This novel sucks you into the lives of the characters and keeps you reading until the very last page," Random Buzzer suprbee says.

Two girls, two centuries apart. One never knowing the other. But when modern-day Brooklynite Andi finds Alexandrine's diary from the French Revolution, she recognizes something in her words and is moved to the point of obsession. There's comfort and distraction for Andi in the journal's antique pages—until, on a midnight journey through the catacombs of Paris, Alexandrine's words transcend paper and time, and the past becomes suddenly, terrifyingly present.

The Things a Brother Knows
Here's a review from Random Buzzer Actinupwithbooks:

The Things a Brother Knows in one of the first books that I have read about a soldier returning from war and the impact that his leaving then returning has on a family dynamic. While this story is not a new one, Reinhardt addresses the conflict both delicately and with humor from the perspective of the soldier's younger brother, Levi.

Boaz's decision to enlist in the Marines, when he has the choice to go to any college that he wants, leaves Levi confused and disconnected from the brother he has always known. He wonders how Boaz can defend something that Levi himself isn't even sure he has an opinion about. While the book reveals a soldier's experience during wartime and the toll it takes on his life when he returns home, it is Levi's journey to understand his brother and himself that makes The Things a Brother Knows worth reading.

The Scorch Trials cover
Fast-paced sequel to The Maze Runner
Loved the Hunger Games trilogy and don't know what to read next? James Dashner's The Maze Runner and newly-released The Scorch Trials should be number one on your to-read list!

For those of you who are already Dashner fans, you're going to love The Scorch Trials. Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But the Gladers are far from finished with running. Instead of freedom, they find themselves faced with another trial. They must cross the Scorch, the most burned-out section of the world, and arrive at a safe haven in two weeks. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.
