Three Favourite YA Reads

I love reading YA and this year I read so many great books for my 100 book challenge it was hard to pick out my favourites! Some were recently published, but others go back a few years, because I find out about great books on other blogs as well as while browsing at the library. Some of this year's favourites:

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi - I loved the story and the way the author used the sense of smell (more on this here). I can hardly wait for the sequel!


Cinder by Marissa Meyer - Such a cool concept to mix fairytales and sci-fi. I really enjoyed this one, even though some parts were a bit predictable.

Jane by April Lindner - I love Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and this modern take was really enjoyable.

There were so many other YA books that I enjoyed this year, including:

Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

The Selection by Kiera Cass

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Gilt by Katherine Longshore

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I'm looking forward to what's in store for 2013! What was your favourite YA read this year?


  1. I wasn't a fan of Cinder, but I would like to read Jane. Thanks for the rec!

  2. Yes! I agree too. Loved all of those books. We have very similar tastes in what we read. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  3. love this post :) i read a few of your picks - under the never sky, cinder, the fault in our stars, the scorpio races, and insurgent. enjoyed them all in very different ways!

    i read the book thief for the first time this year - definitely a favorite. it made me shed as many tears as the fault in our stars, which is saying something!!
