I am always seeking book recommendations from my friends and family, and they never seem to propose good books, so, here are the top 5 most highly recommended books.

To start off, In 5 Years is a novel by Rebecca Serale, who is known for writing romances and is also a New York Times Best Seller. In 5 Years is a futuristic novel that takes place in Manhattan, NY. The main character is an uptight lawyer who after nailing the most important interview of her career, and accepting her boyfriend’s marriage proposal goes home for a night of relaxation. But as day breaks she hears the subtle murmur of the news saying the same date, December 25, but 5 years into the future. The story describes the love story between her partner and herself, and is a touching novel everyone should read. According to Choloe Benjamin from the New York Times, it was “as clever as it is moving, the rare read-in-one-sitting novel you won’t forget. “I loved this novel so much. It was such a good way to pass my time and still remains one of my favorites.” (Sarah Bennani 10).

Next is a story that was told so well it topped billboards the second it was published. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr tells the story of a blind French girl who flees y to the city of Saint Malo, where she lives with her uncle who is charged with rooting out French Resistance. This moving story is bound to grasp your attention.

Following that is The Man Who Died Twice by Richard Osmon. This thriller is set to have you clinging to the edge of your seat. It features a three young friends who came together to form a murder club. As they ride on the high of their last murder an old friend visits them, frantically saying that he has been accused of stealing diamonds. As time goes on and everything seems fine a body turns up. The murder club is on the hunt, hoping to catch the murdered before the murderer catches them. This riveting mystery thriller will rock your world and leave you shocked for days. According to the New York Times, the novel “invokes classic crime tropes with a mix of sparkling humor and emotion.” To add on, “Think of the Thursday Murder Club itself as a senior version of ‘The A-Team’. . . Funny, moving and suspenseful. . .  So delicious, even adorable . . A wildly entertaining book” says the Washington Post. These novels were some of my favorites, and I hope you enjoy them too.
