Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Young Adult Novels I Can't Believe I Haven't Read Yet

I'm very behind in the YA genre, and I really need to fix that! Here's ten staple YA books that I haven't read yet. Let me know which ones I should read first; I own eight of these ten books, so I can get started on this list as soon as I find time to read for fun this semester. 



Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell


The Darkest Minds, Alexandra Bracken


Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein


The Raven Boys, Maggie Stiefvater


Tiger Lily, Jodi Lynn Anderson


Just One Day, Gayle Forman


Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Lani Taylor


The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, Michelle Hodkin


I'll Give you the Sun, Jandy Nelson


Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson

  1. You must read Speak! I say that to everyone. LOL I'm listening to my first Rainbow Rowell book right now, Eleanor and Park and loving it. I haven't read Fangirl yet.

    Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein is one I've wanted to read since I first heard about it. I'll Give you the Sun is supposed to be really good. And I've always wanted to try something by Maggie Stiefvater.

    Great list!

  8. I'll Give You the Sun was SO beautiful! I love Jandy Nelson's writing so much, and these characters in this book - I just wanted to give them an enormous hug and a blanket and a cup of hot cocoa. I loved them so much.

    I actually enjoyed The Darkest Minds a lot more than I thought I would. After so many dystopian novels out there, I'm getting tired of them, but I thought TDM brought something entirely new to the genre. It was unique and it actually made me cry a bit.

    1. Glad to hear you loved them! I've heard lots of positive praise for both! Also glad to hear TDM has something unique to it, since dystopian isn't something I read a lot of because it can get repetitive.

  9. Oh Mallory, I do love you; you're always there to make me feel a bit better about some of the books I haven't read. ;) There are so many books on your list I haven't read either - maybe we should try having a mass read-a-long later this year...

    Great list!

  11. As much as I enjoyed Fangirl, for me it didn't live up to the hype. But, oh my days, The Raven Boys is one of my favourite books and I highly recommend that series! I also really want to read The Darkest Minds - I feel like I'm so behind having not read that.
    I hope you enjoy all of these when you get around to reading them :)

  15. I'll give you the sun is one of the best books I've ever read! It was like poetry in prose, I loved it so so much!!
    And Code name Verity left me in tears. It's not really my genre but it was incredible nonetheless :')

  16. I loved FANGIRL, CODE NAME VERITY and SPEAK. THE DARKEST MINDS didn't impress me. The other books on your list are all on my TBR pile. I'll get to them someday!

  17. Oh, so many of these are on my MUST read list. Goodness, practically all of them! I have read I'll Give You the Sun, and it is definitely a must read! I really liked Darkest Minds, but the other books dragged a bit, though I still liked them. Hope you get to read all of these soon!
