Reading books is a great way to get the imagination going. But I find it's more fun when you read about things that don't really exist- it causes your imagination to branch out more!
Three of my favorite supernatural and paranormal are Paranormalcy, Clockwork Angel, and The Young Elites.
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Evie works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, with werewolves, mermaids, vampires, shapeshifters and more! This 16 year old girl is faced with saving the lives of paranormal beings- she is the only one who can do it, but faced with difficult issues she starts to doubt if she can.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Tessa Gray heads to England to find her brothers. Instead she finds shadowhunters, vampires, warriors, warlocks and other supernatural folk. Not only that, but when she arrives she is kidnapped by two Dark sisters. Her goal? To stay alive and find out why she's so important. And to add to the fun, who better than some cute guy to come to her rescue?
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
An illness swept through a city, and some survivors were left with scars. Those with scars were then called Malfettos. They were considered to have powerful gifts, and because of this they remained hidden. This story follows a girl who has a scar and her life as she discovers how to use her gift, and how she finds she is not the only one gifted. This book contains unpredictable twists and turns, and you never get tired of reading it! The gifts add a level of fun to the story making it more exciting.
