The Broke and the Bookish is a great book review blog and it hosts what is called the Top Ten Tuesday. I have decided to take part for the first time, since I like (and already do) lists on this blog. This week is the Top Ten X Genre books and I have chosen to list my favorite YA books.
So, on my bookshelf, you can find…
1- Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Witches in South Carolina. Wonderful writing and setting. My number One.
2- The Luxe by Anna Godbersen
Gossip Girl in the 19th Century. A delight to read.
3- The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell
A girl who can see the future in 19th Century Baltimore. What more do you want?!
4- Abandon by Meg Cabot
A retelling of the Persephone myth. I loved the idea but this book was so short! I felt a bit cheated. Now I’m waiting for Book 2.
5- The Dark Divine by Bree Despain
Werewolves! And such a gorgeous cover…
6- Evermore by Alyson Noel
Immortal lovers who have to find each other again every time they are reborn. A good idea but I didn’t like the heroine.
7- Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar
Already a classic. And I bought it at the Strand Bookstore and read it while I lived in New York. Good times…
8- I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
Extraterrestrials! Teenage hormones! Not my favorite book of all time but a good read, with a great suspense.
9- Fallen by Lauren Kate
I bought this book for its cover, I’ll admit it. It’s about angels. And there’s a love triangle. A good read, but nothing highly original.
10- Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Angels, again. I liked the plot, but I loathed the main male character. Which is why it’s my number Ten.
What is your Top Ten?
