I adored this YA novel and the books following it in the series. Second only to the Harry Potter books in my love for fantasy, it has something for everyone, with romance, action, humor, monsters, a fierce female lead, and in my opinion some of the best quotable lines in YA literature. Prepare to laugh and cry as you get to know a few of the most memorable characters this genre has to offer.

Ever feel like your friends are up to something without you? In this beautifully written tale of the academic world, Tartt introduces us to the elite study of Classics, and five students who are willing to go a little too far in their search for something special. I was drawn in immediately by the feeling of being back at school, with a charismatic professor and friends who might just do anything for you… or to you. This story will have you thinking back to all your adventures at college, and any secrets that might be hiding there. ~ Sarah
