Top Ten Books To Buy The YA Lover In Your Life!


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. For this week’s list it’s all about gift guides. Recommendations for someone that loves a certain genre. I went for YA because I could think of so many recommedations. It was actually quite tricky to narrow it down!

Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda- Becky Albertalli

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

This was one of my favourite books of last year. It makes every Top Ten list that I can fit it on.

Everything, Everything- Nicola Yoon

Everything, Everything

Didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did!

All The Rage- Courtney Summers

All the Rage

A dark and raw story.

Eleanor & Park- Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park

My favourite Rainbow Rowell book. Adorable.

Thirteen Reasons Why- Jay Asher

Thirteen Reasons Why

Another dark story, but so well written!

Lola And The Boy Next Door- Stephanie Perkins

Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss, #2)

Adorable ❤

The Sky Is Everywhere- Jandy Nelson

The Sky Is Everywhere

Such a sad but heart-warming read!

Second Chance Summer- Morgan Matson

Second Chance Summer

Another sad story. This one really moved me and warmed my heart!

The Rest Of Us Just Live Here- Patrick Ness

The Rest of Us Just Live Here

Patrick Ness is awesome and this book is a page turner.

A Monster Calls- Patrick Ness

This book broke me. It is one of my favourite ever reads.

  1. “Everything, Everything” is one I’ve been eyeing recently. Also, I anticipate ‘Lola’ being adorable (‘Anna’ sure was!) and I cannot wait to discover more of Morgan Matson’s books. 🙂

    Thanks so much, as always, for visiting Finding Wonderland, Chrissi.

  2. Amazing list! I totally agree about Simon, I read it this year and it’s definitely one of my all-time faves. But basically every book on this list is one I’ve either already read or is still on my TBR so I do love them all 🙂

  3. YA would be tough to nail down, there are so many good things in YA now. Great list! I have Eleanor & Park on my TBR, and Everything Everything seems to get good reviews too. these look like great picks!

  4. Eleanor & Park has been sat on my shelf for ages now – I really need to get reading! I enjoyed Thirteen Reasons Why too. I’d highly recommend All The Bright Places to a YA lover too – it’s absolutely incredible!

  5. All of these books look really good! The only one I have read is Everything Everything but I have been eyeing off Eleanor & Park for a while! Next time I am looking for some reading/gifting inspiration I will be sure to come back to check out these books! 🙂

  6. I’ve been saying that I need to read A Monster Calls for AGES, but to be honest I’m intimidated by how sad I’ve heard it is. I’ll have to really prepare for an emotional rollercoaster!
    Great list! 🙂

  7. Even though this is not my typical genre, there are a few here I am interested in. The only one I have read is ‘Eleanor and Park’, and I feel I am probably in the minority with my opinion on it, but I am glad that you liked it. I DID appreciate at least that Eleanor of Aquitaine was mentioned 🙂 Wonderful list, as usual!

  8. Eleanor and Park is not the type of book I generally go for but what I read of it is pretty well written so I’m not surprised to see it on your list. I think I got halfway and then went off to read zombies but that was no reflection on the book itself!

  9. Eleanor and Park is such a great book! I really want to read Everything, Everything now. I loved The Sun Is Also a Star. This is a great list, Chrissi. I really want to read A Monster Calls and The Rest Of Us Just Live Here. I love Patrick Ness. Thanks for sharing!

  10. Morgan Matson is my go-to author for YA contemporary. You cannot go wrong with her books. I was also surprised by Everything, Everything but it’s such a sweet book. ;D

  11. Excellent choices! Simon Vs. was one of my favorites last year too, and Patrick Ness is one of my heroes. Fall of 2015 I got to meet him at a conference, and I got signed copies of each of the Chaos Walking books for me, and a signed copy of A Monster Calls for my sister as her Christmas gift.

  12. I haven’t read any of these and would love if someone gifted me any of them! Especially The Rest of Us Just Live Here which just has the coolest sounding premise. I think this is a pretty solid list of YA book gifts!!

Comments make me smile and I love to reply to them! Thanks for visiting today!
