A Few of my Favorite YA Reads
Since my tweet a few days ago about NPR’s Best Ever Teen Novels, a few of you have asked about my favorite teen novels. I have a lot of favorites, but if I were to be forced to chose my top ten off the top of my head, in this one moment (because in five minutes I might change my mind), this is what they’d be (in no particular order): House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer, Kit’s Wilderness by David Almond, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Looking for Alaska by John Green, how i live now by Meg Rosoff, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, Stop Pretending by Sonya Sones, out of my mind by Sharon Draper, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. Some of these might be considered mid-grade novels, but I decided to include them regardless. Now your turn… tell me a few of your favorites in the comments below!
