Sometimes it can seem like YA is completely ruled by one genre or another. When I'm recommending YA to my friends, though, I try to recommend something that will really mean something to them - and I'm not just talking about books everyone else is reading. We've all heard about John Green and JK Rowling. But for those who maybe don't read as much as we do, and might not have heard about all the great books that are out there? It's our duty as book bloggers to shed light on some of the YA favourites others could be missing out on.
So without further ado, here's my Top Ten Crash Course in All Things YA...
1. The One With The Happiness and the Families and All the Love: My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
2. The Off-The-Beaten Track Contemporary: The Beginning ofEverything by Robyn Schneider
3. That One Undefinable Book Nobody Has Read but Really Really Should: Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
4. The Best of the Rebels and the Leaders and the Realism: Legend by Marie Lu
5. The One That's Actually Adult But Y'all Should Read It Anyway: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
6. The One About the Guy Mermaid (Because Why Not?): TheVicious Deep by Zoraida Cordova
7. The One You'll Either Love or Hate: Adorkable by Sarra Manning
8. The One Written In A Way You Never Knew Was Possible: Life on the Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers
9. That One Historical Fiction You'll Always Cry At (and Never Get Bored Of): Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
10. And Finally, The One That Totally Punches Above Its Weight in The Fantasy Zone: The Poison Throne by Celine Kiernan
Awesome list from Arianne, right? I have to confess that I haven't read all of these (even though I have some of them *looks at her feet*). Have you read any of these? What are your recommendations?
