This next blogger needs no introduction, so I'll just let her take the floor!
I loved the lists that Steph did last year and I was ecstatic that she invited me to stop by and share a list of my own! (I usually do a "Top Ten" list of my favorite books for the year on The Story Siren, which I will probably do again this year. Just in case... these lists aren't enough for you!) For my guest list here at Steph's I'm going to highlight the top five Young Adult titles that I think were overlooked. The books are ones that totally "rocked my socks" off, but I don't really feel that they had the exposure that they deserved. Add these to your reading piles, I promise you won't be disappointed! These books are in no particular order.
Split by Swati Avasthi
This novel tackles a very serious subject matter marvelously. It’s very emotional and very well written.
Not that Kind of Girl by Siobhan Vivian
A contemporary fiction with a very memorable main character and an atypical romance.
A Blue So Dark by Holly Schindler
This novel was hauntingly beautiful. I was even more impressed because it was a debut novel. If you read one novel on this list, read this one.
A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker
This one isn’t as serious as some of the other titles on the list, but that’s what makes it so great. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much reading a novel. Hilarious.
The Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzalez
This is a historical fiction. I learned so much reading this novel, but I never felt like I receiving a lecture. It was a beautiful story.
Thanks, Kristi! Be sure to head over to Kristi's blog at The Story Siren.
