Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi:
Like for some students, high school goes as a totally ordinary thing. For Penne Lee too. Going to high school was not something she enjoyed. She had friends, her grades were good, and everything was so smooth. On the other hand, we have Sam. He is stuck, emotionally and financially. He is struggling to make both ends meet. But he doesn't take it on his nerves and count it a challenge that will turn into inspiration.
While Penne Lee moves to college in Austin, Texas, to learn how to become a writer, she wants to leave everything behind. Just then, Sam and Penny come across.

If Only They Could Talk by James Herriot:
We believe some books give a direction to your life, and 'if only they could talk' is one of them. The book is equally loved by people of young and mid-age. It is undoubtedly one of the best reads when it comes to the descriptions of the landscape. The author has presented the countryside in a beautiful way. 'If Only They Could Talk' is a book for all those animal lovers. It covers heartbreaks and humor altogether and is for the readers who find laughter and joy in animals.
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao:
The book is about the fortune-telling of an eighteen-year-old Xifeng. She is beautiful, and as predicted by the stars, it is foretold that she is destined for greatness. Growing up in a forgotten village as a peasant, Xifeng looks forward to the destiny written for her. But it comes with a price, and it is only possible if she embraces the darkness within her.
