Let me just make this clear: I absolutely love books. My favourite genre is Young Adult, so that’s why I’m doing a list of YA books you should definitely read. These ones had me hooked from the start, and I simply couldn’t put them down. Warning: may cause non-stop reading. (This list is in no specific order.)
- Thirteen reasons why – Jay Asher
This book’s about suicide, and talks about the reasons why a girl wants to kill herself. It gives a very strong message and really makes you start thinking about your own words and things you did. Remember: everything affects everything.
+ there’s also the new and popular Netflix series, which is called the same as the book.
- The Boy in the Striped Pajamas – John Boyne
About a boy, who’s the son of a nazi commander & another boy, who’s a jew and in the concentration camp of the nazi father. They become friends and a lot of stuff happens. Warning: this will make you cry.
+ the movie is really good!
- Harry Potter – J.K. Rowling
No explanation needed, these ones are just incredible!
+ make sure you watch all the movies (if you haven’t already of course.)
- Maze Runner – James Dashner
Also no explanation needed I think.
+ the first two movies are out & the third one’s coming in February next year!
- Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins
The same as the two previous books.
+ all the movies are nice too!
- The Sword of Summer – Rick Riordan
About a boy who dies and ends up in the Walhalla. Craziness ensues.
- Carry On – Rainbow Rowell
Gay & wonderful, with tons of magic!
- I’ll Give You the Sun – Jandy Nelson
About two twins who find love and their way back to each other. Beautiful quotes, characters and storylines!
- Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertelli
A boy meets another boy on the internet and finds out who he is. He may be a little bit in love with him. (It’s so cute.)
- Fallen – Lauren Kate
You may know these books because of the horrible movie, but don’t fear; the books are way better! This is about angels, love, death and being different. The story is really unique and well written.
+ don’t watch the movie.
