We’re in the middle of the third quarter; it’s getting closer and closer to the end, but that doesn’t mean you should give up on reading. If anything, you should read more; it’s proven that doing so can decrease stress by 68%. Plus, it makes you smarter.

Here is a compilation of new releases, new authors, and some of the Talon staff’s favorite books.

Perks of Being a Wall Flower by Stephen Chbosky
“Perks of Being A Wall Flower is a great book to read while you are experiencing high school. The book is written in the style of a collection of letters, and throughout the book you see how Charlie, the main character, grows and changes as a person.” – Juan

The Martian by Andy Weir
“The Martian is a science fiction novel told through video logs sent out by the astronaut Mark Watney who was stranded on Mars during a storm. Mark has to fight to survive on the alien planet while trying to find a way back home. The book has many funny moments and a few suspenseful moments. Even if you’re not a fan of science fiction, this book would still be a great read. Also, potatoes.” – Juan

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
“Fangirl is one of the best books of our time. It speaks to introverts, to people who frequently find themselves in awkward conversations and situations, to those who have anxieties. Fan Girl is about an 18-year-old young woman who is starting college; she has to deal with the frustrations of college life and trying to finish her fan fiction “Carry On, Simon” before the author of her favorite series releases the last installment of it.” – Monica

Hold Still by Nina LaCour
“Caitlyn’s best friend, Ingrid, commits suicide and this story is about her mourning process. It deals with lots of topics surrounding mental health. During her healing process, Caitlyn wants to do nothing but hold still, but reality does not permit, and she must continue carrying on her daily life despite her new difficulty. She starts reading Ingrid’s diary and learns a lot about the secret problems Ingrid had been dealing with that lead to her death. Because of this, Caitlyn starts helping other people understand and work out their similar problems. This story is good for anyone who is interested in mental health and who is into sad but strangely comforting reads.” – Kallina

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
“This is a YA fantasy book that seems like it’s based off of the Roman Empire. It follows a lower-class girl, Laia, whose brother is taken away because he is suspected of helping start a rebellion. She pretends to be a slave at Blackcliff, a military school, where the Trials are being held to decide the next Emperor. Also, there’s another book published, and two more on the way. It’s great.” – Indigo

Here are some newer books:
I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Stranger than Fanfiction by Chris Colfer
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
Our Chemical Hearts
This is Our Story by Ashley Elston
