Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten All Time Favourite YA Books

September 13: Top Ten All Time Favourite YA Books
Choosing a genre for this week’s topic was almost impossible, hence I sort of cheated, but I did omit any childrens, middle-grade or new adult books, narrowing the scope somewhat. I do love my YA!

1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Dystopian/sci-fi. I adore this book. It’s hard-hitting, emotional and both (amazingly) plot and character driven.

2. Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman
Dystopian. Featuring a strong female protagonist, this emotive novel deals with racism and terrorism.

3. This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp
Contemporary. With LGBT themes, this novel centres around a developing school shooting in the USA.

4. The 100 by Kass Morgan
Sci-fi. One hundred teenagers are sent to Earth on a desperate mission: their survival depends on their own abilities and the state of the planet itself.

5. Divergent by Veronica Roth
Dystopian/sci-fi. A city is divided into five factions, with each faction responsible for a specific duty: what will happen when one faction attempts to control them all?

6. Legend by Marie Lu
Dystopian/sci-fi. A fifteen year old criminal befriends the city’s teenage prodigy whilst attempting to uncover secret government operations.

7. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Dystopian/sci-fi. A group of boys are sent into a maze with one objective: to escape. But it’s definitely not that simple.

8. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli 
Contemporary. Teenage male protagonist is blackmailed when a classmate finds out he is gay. This is a journey of self-acceptance and love.

9. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Fantasy. Featuring a strong female lead, this book sees the protagonist attempt to win a contest to become the King’s assassin.

10. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Contemporary. A group of cousins spend every summer on their island: the less you know going into this book, the better.

  2. I did NOT know that The 100 is a book first before it is a TV series! I’ve always assumed it’s a TV series from the start, haha. And Simon vs. is just so cute.
