There are so many great YA reads out there. But for a book to make it on MY favorite list, it has to pass the I-Would-Read-This-Again-In-A-Second test & the I-Own-This test (or will be buying a copy ASAP). So, as of today, May 23, 2013, here is a list of my top favorites.
Brodi Ashton: Everneath & Everbound & Neverfall (Novella)
Jane Austen: I’m not sure if her novels count as YA, but ALL her books are on my list, in the #1 spot!
Lisa T. Bergren: Waterfall & Cascade & Torrent
Gail Carriger: Etiquette Espionage
Kristen Cashore: Graceling & Fire & Bitterblue
Rae Carson: The Girl of Fire and Thorns & The Crown of Embers & The Bitter Kingdom & The Shadow Cats
Ally Condie: Matched & Crossed & Reached
Sarah Beth Durst: Drink, Slay, Love & Enchanted Ivy & Ice
Diana Wynn Jones: Howl’s Moving Castle
Jenny B. Jones: So Not Happening & I’m So Sure & So Over My Head & There You’ll Find Me
Robin LaFevers: Grave Mercy & Dark Triumph
Marissa Meyer: Cinder & Scarlet
Stephenie Meyer: Twilight & Breaking Dawn & The Host
Rick Riordon: Percy Jackson Series (This series falls somewhere between Middle Grade & YA, but I really enjoyed it!)
J.K Rowling: The Harry Potter Series
Polly Shulman: Enthusiasm
Scott Westerfield: Uglies & Pretties & Specials & Extras
**Well, that’s it for today…I’m sure I’ll think of a few more as soon as I publish this…
