Top 3 Right Now: Sierra L.’s Top Books

This week, we’re featuring a fantastic booklist from one of our local teens, Sierra.

Thanks for taking the time to share your favorite books with us, Sierra!


“The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
I’m a big fan of romantic novels, but I’m very reluctant to read any that are stereotypical or cliché. “The Night Circus” manages to create a satisfying love story with enough complexity and intrigue to separate it from the typical book romance. This elegantly-written book also has characteristics of both the mystery and fantasy genre.
It has something for everyone!

Looking for Alaska by John Green
John Green’s works of art have gained an incredible about of recognition, but I feel his creation “Looking for Alaska” has failed to be given the acknowledgement it deserves.
As an avid reader of John Green’s works, I will say that this piece is one of his grittier and heavier stories. It has more mature themes than his other novels, but he does an amazing job of pulling at the reader’s heart strings while staying true to the life of a teen. I very much recommend this book! It has stayed in my mind as one of my favorites since I read it two years ago.

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
I actually had to read this book for school, and I didn’t really expect myself to like it as much as I did. Walls finds a way to make you hate and love almost every single character, and because of that, the book brings up many thought-provoking questions to ask yourself once you finish. There’s not much to say without spoiling anything, except that this book is simply amazing and will always have a special place in my heart. By the end, I was shedding buckets of tears. It’s not a happy book, but it’s a beautiful one.”

Great suggestions, Sierra!
