Top Ten Tuesday – YA Books

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?
