June 6: Top Ten YA Books That I’ve Recently Added To My TBR
I am constantly discovering new authors and books thanks to social media (primarily Goodreads and Instagram), so I picked ten novels that have come to my attention lately that I am excited to read imminently (but let’s face it, with my erratic reading pattern, I’ll probably get to them some time in 2020!)
1. Geekerella by Ashley Poston
I love fairytale retellings, and this is a modern day tale partly set at comic-con: literally combining a few of my very favourite things!
2. The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord
Emery Lord has been on my radar for a while, but I’ve yet to read any of her books. This novel, featuring cancer and church camp, might be the place to start.
3. Countless by Karen Gregory
An unexpected pregnancy and an eating disorder combine in this debut novel about love, heartache and human resilience.
4. Made You Up by Francesca Zappia
I don’t think I’ve ever read a YA book featuring a schizophrenic protagonist; this novel has received such high praise that I can’t pass it up.
5. The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee
The simple fact that this novel is set in New York City 100 years in the future has me sold. I love me some sci-fi.
6. Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith
What’s the worst that could happen if you won $140 million on the lottery? This book sounds like it deals with some serious issues, including gambling and debt.
7. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
Everyone seems to be raving about this book, both because of the fact that it features a PoC protagonist and simply because it is an absolutely incredible contemporary.
8. The State of Grace by Rachel Lucas
A main character with Aspergers and a kiss that changes her world, this has the potential to be an interesting read.
9. The Haters by Jesse Andrews
Having read and enjoyed Me, Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews, adding this book to my TBR was a no brainer.
10. Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman
I haven’t read a pirate book in ages, and this one has connections with Bristol (pretty much my home town) which makes this novel doubly interesting to me.
