YA is something I did not get into until I was about 16, but once I’d read The Humans by Matt Haig and Looking for Alaska by John Green, I was hooked!
Here is a list of my top 5 favourite YA fiction books (so far):
This was technically the first YA book I read – but I’d never heart it YA when I was 12!
The story was just so different – and still is -to most others in the genre.
I love books like this because they make me consider what it means to be human (in the best was possible).
For a modern classic, a lot of people do not like this book – so much so that even the indication of it possibly being a YA book is slightly jarring.
I think it deserves to be on this list.
This is yet another YA that caused me to think – so much so I was in a bit of a daze after reading it, much like a book hangover.
For anyone who loves YA or is considering writing a YA novel, look here for original inspiration.
This hilarious, heartwarming story makes me happy just to think about!
From the chance encounter in a porn shop to the best school musical in history, this novel will make you feel all the emotions!
The Will Graysons will forever be two of my favourite fictional characters.
I’m glad that this book was funny because otherwise I don’t think I could have coped!
This novel has had such a huge impact on both my writing and the way I perceive everything around me and in my own head.
It is a novel with a map to somewhere wonderful, you just need to let it take you there.
Geeks, The Smiths, and the best friendship of all time all in one book – need I continue?
I seem to choose the books that break my heart while making me laugh at the same time – it’s like I’m punishing myself! However it is quite the opposite.
If I ever write a general fiction novel, I will aspire to be half as good as this book – and even that would take a miracle.
I just want to dive right back into the book just because I’m taking about it!
If you do nothing else before you die – read this.
