Books are wondrous things. They can take the reader on a space adventure or deep under the sea. A heart pounding adventure with a twist is just as excellent as a sweet romance. For book lovers every where, books are the key to traveling through time, space, or to exotic places. With so many out there, it’s hard to choose just one. Below is a list of the most popular books this year.
1) The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
With the movie Mockingjay (part 1) about to hit theaters this fall, these books are great for anyone who wants to read the ending instead of seeing it. Of course, as book fans, reading is preferable to watching a movie.
2) Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
Laurel has to write letters to a dead person for a school assignment. She never turns them in, but soon the truth about what happened to herself, gets written down and she slowly begins to understand and accept what happened to May.

One of the top books on the NY Times Best Seller list, this book weaves a dangerous trail for Detective Kinsey that follows a sociopath killer who never leaves evidence behind. And Kinsey may end up dying in this one.
5) House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
An up-and- coming book, this story will make even your socks run screaming. It follow a family who buys a house but the house has one major issue. It’s bigger inside than it’s structure would seem. Voices of lost children, a creepy growl and dark creatures find their way in this horrifically enchanting tale.
One book that is trending and deserves mentioning but not on this list is E.L. James’ Grey. Seems She doesn’t even need mentioned to make any sort of list.
