Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there’s a different Top Ten list. It’s a great way to find and connect with other awesome bloggers.
I get to recommend books!! Yay!!
I actually did a similar post a whiiiile back, when I was a little baby blogger. It’s a boring post – no pictures or gifs or ANYTHING, just words. But it’s here if you’d like to see those recs, because I still love them. Although a lot of them are MG rather than YA, so this time I’m doing all YA books.
The Protected by Claire Zorn
Claire Zorn is now one of my favourite writers. Both this one and The Sky So Heavy are absolutely amazing, and everyone should read them. The Protected is about family and a girl who’s lost her sister, and it’s set near where I live so that’s exciting.
Flirty Dancing by Jenny McLachlan
I don’t care that it has an embarrassing title and cheesy-looking cover. It is SO ADORABLE and again, everyone should read this one. It’s about a dance competition and standing up for yourself and it has excellent family members.
Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender
I was SO SURPRISED by how much I loved this one! It has France and food and a serial killer, and yeah, okay, the ending wasn’t great, but more people should read this.
Unhinged by A G Howard
So the first book is quite popular, but the second one is SO MUCH BETTER than the first!!
Every Day by David Levithan
David Levithan is a bit of a hit-and-miss author for me, but I LOVED Every Day. It’s about A, who inhabits a different body every day, and it’s really, really interesting.
Northern Lights by Philip Pullman
ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SERIES OF EVER. Everyone – and I mean everyone – should read this series. It’s got polar bears and science and magic and witches and different worlds and daemons, which are souls in animal format, and oh my gosh it’s just amazing.
Life in Outer Space by Melissa Keil
Seriously amazing contemporary. Which reminds me, I really need to buy The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl…
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
I cried. Seriously. (okay, no, I didn’t, but I was CLOSE) It’s full of sass and yes, it’s a bit slow at the beginning, but it’s about friendship and war and UGH, it’s amazing.
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Which reminds me that I have to read What I Thought Was True. I was so surprised at the DEPTH of this book – it has an awesome romance but it’s also really thought-provoking.
The Last Girl by Michael Adams
The writing in this book is so SMART. And it’s a dystopian like I’ve never read before – people can suddenly hear what everyone is thinking, sooooo everyone starts killing each other. Pretty much. It’s awesome.
