by Morgan Higgins For those of us who love reading, we have some trouble finding those books that really peak our interest. If you don’t have that problem, good for you. I don’t know about many of you, but I spend so much time in bookstores. The only problem is the drive there. My friend’s call me the “Book Dealer” because I always “deal” out recommendations for the best books to read. I’m here to give you a few recommendations on some of the books that I’ve read and loved.

I personally love James Patterson books. The chapters are at most about four pages long, so they make a quick read if you’re cutting it close on time. If I have five minutes until I need to go to sleep, I can bust out a chapter or two, which is nice because you don’t have to worry about starting a chapter and not being able to finish it.

Below I have listed a few of my favorite James Patterson books, along with some others, that you should check out!

This book revolves around two sisters, Cassie and Becca Greenfield. In the book, one of them is kidnapped and has no clue where she is, while the other frantically tries to find her. Citizens who don’t like the government are trying to take it down. They Ruler thinks the sisters are apart of it
