Books to Read After Watching "Everything, Everything"

Rare, incurable illness? Check. Against-all-odds romance? Double check. A lifechanging journey? Check, check, check. EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING by Nicola Yoon introduces readers to 17-year-old Maddy, a girl who is literally allergic to the world and has basically never left her house. When a moving truck arrives next door, however, and tall, lean Olly jumps out, Maddy feels certain that love is on the forecast. As Maddy and Olly gaze at each other through their windows and learn about one another through text, they begin to form a deep bond that makes them question everything. This amazing book has recently been adapted for the big screen and Teenreads gushed and sighed through the movie starring Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson. With summer just around the corner, we've curated this list of books with similar romances, illnesses and captivating plotlines to keep you reading all summer long. Whether you've seen the movie and loved it or are waiting to read the book first, you're sure to find your next read on this bookshelf.

13 Books to Read After You Finish "13 Reasons Why"

Jay Asher's bestselling novel, 13 REASONS WHY, was recently adapted as a Netflix original series, debuting on March 31st, 2017. After binge-watching the entire series in less than 24 hours, we knew we needed more. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of 13 books to read after you've finished the series. Adding the 10th Anniversary Edition of 13 REASONS WHY by Jay Asher seemed like a natural choice, because it is filled with exclusive new content such as an intro by Jay Asher and some deleted scenes. The rest of our featured titles, however, are very different, although they each feature the same heart-pounding drama and tear-filled emotional scenes. From Adam Silvera we have HISTORY IS ALL YOU LEFT ME, a beautiful and heartbreaking story of grief and love, written in a way that keeps the reader in the dark about what led the characters to this point, much like 13 REASONS WHY. Also featured is GOODBYE DAYS by Jeff Zentner, which follows teenaged Carver, who has inadvertently caused a car accident that killed his three best friends and follows his journey from guilt to acceptance.

Whether you finished the series in one night or have yet to tune in, you're sure to find a great read on our latest bookshelf.
