Top Ten Books I Would Recommend to People that haven't Read YA

I know, I know. I'm taking the easy route on this one. In my defense, I couldn't really think of a different subject matter/author that I would be able to get a list of ten books. I probably could have gotten ten paranormal books but paranormal is a little tricky. I feel like you either like it or you don't. Sure, there are some paranormal books that I think would appeal to a wide audience (a few will be on the upcoming list) but just not enough. Whereas, with YA in general I think there are lots of books that could appeal to all readers. Plus, this is a YA blog so it does make sense! :)

1. Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas- This book is ah-mazing! I can't say enough good things about it. It is full of suspense and intrigue! The plot is fast paced and the characters are extremely well developed!

2. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein- I think this book would appeal to just about anyone. I honestly can't picture someone reading this book and not loving it. A great historical YA book!

3. Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein- Again, I think this book would appeal to just about anyone. Apparently, Wein excels at creating books that will be universally loved!

4. The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay- This book simply put is a beautiful story. One of my favorites! Side note: highly recommend the audio!!

5. Vampire Academy (series) by Richelle Mead- Please, please, PLEASE don't judge by the movie! While I didn't hate the movie, I didn't especially love it and I don't think it portrayed the book well at all. Plus, the second book has something that the first book doesn't: Adrian. ***Swoon*** My advice stick it out through the first book if for no other reason than to meet Adrian. You're welcome! :)

6. Pretty much anything by Kasie West- Loved Pivot Point and Split Second and I don't see how anyone could not love either of those. Also, The Distance Between Us was so cute. Love Kasie West!!

7. Poison Princess by Kresley Cole- I know there are a lot of people out there that love her adult books and despite the fact that I haven't read them I think fans of her adult books will love her YA books. Side note: love the audio version!!

8. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (series)- I know pretty much everyone has read or at the very least seen the movie. This books are just so good and have such a strong and powerful message!

9. Just One Day by Gayle Forman- This book really resonated with me. I probably related to Allyson more than any character I have ever read. She is/was me! 

10. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Lani Taylor- This was a difficult choice. I love this book. I love Taylor's writing style and the way her words so beautifully fit together. Yet, I'm still not sure I could recommend it to everyone. Still, I love it so much I think I would recommend it anyway! 

There's my list, y'all! Who made your list?


  1. Vampire Academy <3. I agree with you 100%, people shouldn't judge it by the movie. Although I have to say, as much as I love Adrian, Dimitri own's my heart :P

  2. I love your list! Code Name Verity and Rose Under Fire made my list for historical fiction recommendations. I love these books!! And Kasie West is one of my favorite authors! I will read anything she writes!!
