So, I’m not a huge, huge reader of YA Literature. I enjoy it, but I’m pretty new to this genre so this will be a bit difficult! (By the way, you to check out my previous post in this list series, if you would like!).
Anyway, let’s get it started with…
Seriously, this is a really, really excellent fairy tale retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses. The magic is electrifying and and relationship between the all the Princesses (there are twelve of them) is really cute. If you want to read my full review right here.
2. The Scorpio Races.
Okay, so I’ve already mentioned this in a previous List Time post, but I have to mention it again, because it’s one of my total, total favourites. The character development is spot-on and the Capaill uise are incredibly frightening (in a good way).
3. The Book Thief.
If you feel the need to read a hauntingly beautiful World War II novel, go pick this one up. Told by Death, it really adds a new perspective to this time in history.
4. Prisoner of Night and Fog.
This one may be slightly less deep than the previously mentioned novel, but it takes an interesting look at Hitler and Germany during the early 1930’s. Plus, it’s got a good mystery, which I love!
5. The Lost Girl of Astor Street.
(Speaking of mysteries!) I loved this one. Actually, I may have read it nearly one sitting. So, if you love the 1920’s, mysteries and all the jazz (hah, I’m so punny) you’ll love The Lost Girl of Astor Street.
Woah, *wipes sweat off brow* well I got through this list alive, thank goodness. You know, maybe I should try to add some variety to my reading schedule! If you have any YA suggestions, let me know.
Until next time,
