Recommendations – Young Adult (YA)


I had so much fun writing the last one…I decided to keep going.  The next couple of blogs will be about books and series that I have read and I would recommend.  I won´t give too much detail…these are recommendations…not really reviews.

I love YA books and I have found some great series…there is always something for everyone in these books.  Most of the ones below I have read the whole series.  I try to read at least the first one in a series and then decide if I want to go on from there or not.

I hope these help you decide on books to read in the future!

Hunger Games Series – If you haven´t read it you are missing a FANTASTIC series.  I rank it up there with Harry Potter

Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth – I loved the first two books in the trilogy but the third disappointed me. Looking forward to the movie only because I didn’t finish the book.

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater – Fabulous story of courage, determination and horses!

Miss Peregrine´s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs – I think this may eventually be a series but I am not sure.  Very peculiar…lots of pictures…be sure to read the back on how where they found the photos…

Ender´s Game by Orson Scott Card – Awesome book especially if you like video games.  This is actually a series but I liked the way it ended so I haven´t continued on.

Rick Riordan – He has three series…one about Greek Gods, one about Roman Gods and one about Egyptian Gods.  I have enjoyed them all! They are awesome via Audio books!

Sweep Series by Cate Tiernan – Witchcraft – Very short fast reads

Modern Tale of Faerie by Holly Black – Faeries (the curse workers series is cool too)

House of Night Series by PC Cast – Interesting series about a school for vampyres

Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead – Another vampire school series but totally different.  If I had to choose one I would choose this one!  I love the characters and they have now have a new series (Bloodlines) based on some of the same characters.

Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson – Very awesome series about using elemental magic…probably more Fantasy than young adult but the characters are young.

Study Series by Maria Snyder – I loved this and the Glass Series.  Fantasy, magic etc…

There are a lot of other YA books I have read but these are some of my favorites!
