After finishing What If It’s us just over a week ago I realised how much I had been missing YA as a genre over the past couple of months.
Here are some of the books I want to read now I’m starting to fall in love with YA all over again!
Floored – Eleanor Wood, Holly Bourne, Lisa Williamson, Melinda Salisbury, Non Pratt, Sara Barnard, and Tanya Byrne
It was actually Beth who gave me this book as a gift! I’ve heard mixed reviews but the blurb makes it sound like something I would love –
When they got in the lift, they were strangers (though didn’t that guy used to be on TV?): Sasha, who is desperately trying to deliver a parcel; Hugo, who knows he’s the best-looking guy in the lift and is eyeing up Velvet, who knows what that look means when you hear her name and it doesn’t match the way she looks, or the way she talks; Dawson, who was on TV, but isn’t as good-looking as he was a few years ago and is desperately hoping no one recognizes him; Kaitlyn, who’s losing her sight but won’t admit it, and who used to have a poster of Dawson on her bedroom wall, and Joe, who shouldn’t be here at all, but who wants to be here the most.
And one more person, who will bring them together again on the same day every year
They Both Die At the End – Adam Silvera
I feel like I am actually the last person in the entire cosmos to have not read this book. After meeting Adam and Becky at their signing a few months ago in Manchester I feel like I need to read it even more! –
On September 5, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: They’re going to die today.
Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure—to live a lifetime in a single day.
A Court of Frost and Starlight – Sarah J Maas
If you knew how much of an ACOTAR fan I was then the fact that I still have not read ACOFAS is almost ridiculous. I know that this is a shorter novel – more of a novella – but I get the sense that its going to be just as amazingly tense and magical as all of the others. –
Feyre, Rhys, and their close-knit circle of friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve.
Yet even the festive atmosphere can’t keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated–scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.
And that is my YA TBR.
Whats on yours? Are you still on a post christmas book buying ban?
Keep on reading!
And thanks again Beth.
