Life As We Knew It: Life As We Knew It Series, Book 1 by Susan Beth Pfeffer I guess I always felt even if the world came to an end, McDonald's still would be open. High school sophomore Miranda's disbelief turns to fear in a split second when an asteroid knocks the moon closer to Earth, the way "one marble hits another." The result is catastrophic. Told in a year's worth of journal entries, this heart-pounding story chronicles Miranda's struggle.
Life As We Knew It: Life As We Knew It Series, Book 1: Susan Beth Pfeffer, finished July 2014. Great book. At times I felt like I was living it. Can't wait to read the rest of the series
The Magicians: A Novel (Magicians Trilogy) by Lev Grossman: I started off totally into the universe of this book. It was like Brooklyn Harry Potter. However, the second half goes a bit crazy, to the point where I probably won't end up reading the other two :\ It felt like a lot of the issues brought up in the first half were interesting but dropped, like the ennui of privilege, this idea of being "gifted" in America.

The Magicians: A Novel by Lev Grossman. This book is more Young Adult than YA -- where our hero has to deal with his depression and ennui even amid an amazing fantasy world and magic powers he didn't know existed. #fiction #fantasy #series
The Magicians by Lev Grossman. It's a cross between Harry Potter, the Chronicles of Narnia, and every other classic fantasy series (and includes allusions to all). However, it is an adult book and includes some graphic scenes that the typical Harry Potter fan may not be keen on.
