Any YA books you all love..even as an adult?Any YA books you all love…even as an adult??? Megan #questionnaire #young adult
Love Letters to the Dead. It was very good. I don’t normally read YA. But, I did this one.
Yes! I love these books!
I am wrapping up a Tortall marathon. Both the Alanna the Lioness and Wild Magic quartets hold up superbly after 15+ years as favorites. Enjoyed Protector of the Small and Beka Cooper, not sold on Trickster’s duo though ?
Between Shades of Gray and Salt to Sea both by Ruta Sepetys.
I have read most all Percy Jackson books
I started reading Percy Jackson with my daughter, but I continued for myself.
I have read for myself and have read mangis chase and am now reading the trial of apollo
I loved Sarah Dessen’s Saint Anything.
The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green, If I Stay by by Gayle Forman(I haven’t read the next book yet so can’t say on that one, but liked the first), Sunshine by Robin McKinley(this might be new adult, not young adult? but not positive, I’ve seen it on lists for YA so IDK), Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. . . these are just ones that immediately come to mind, but sure there are others. Don’t be discouraged from a book just cause it’s YA. Honestly, there’s no shame in reading it even if you’re an adult.
Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater
Any books by Sarah dessen and Ellen Hopkins. But I also like many YA series like hunger games, blue bloods, etc. YA is my fave genre
Slammed by Colleen Hoover… it’s part 1 of a trilogy
If I stay, before I fall, The sky is everywhere, Thirst series by Christopher Pike
loooove christopher pike.
Long Way Down – written in fierce, staccato verse. Addresses teen gun violence in a unique way.
That was really good!
Twilight and Hunger Games
The Throne of Glass Series. Falling Kingdoms Series. The Bone Witch series. Three Dark Crowns series. I love YA. Lol
You forgot the Court of Thorns and Roses series also.

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
Ask the Passengers by A. S. King ❤
The mortal instrument series the prequel called the infernal devices. So many YA I love
The Old Country
If The Hate U Give is YA, then why wouldn’t To Kill a Mockingbird be in the same category? I think it would be if published today.
Oh yes!!! As a former elementary reading teacher: Walk Two Moons, Because of Winn Dixie, Maniac Magee, Stone Fox.
Yes definitely. I loved the Raven Cycle books, and the six of Crows duology probably the most.
The Tyrant’s Daughter
Anything by Neal Shusterman.
Eleanor and Park
I totally fell in love with this book. Have you read anything else from Rainbow Rowell?

I love ACOTAR series (book 2 being my favorite of all time) The Grisha trilogy, just read The Female of the Species and it was so good and made me so emotional at the end. Undead Girl Gang was one I thought I would like but not give much thought about once it was read but HOLY COW this book was funny, and sad, it had a mystery element to it and I am still thinking about this book it was that good.
