Good Reads | The Young Adult Edition

I may be a few years beyond my teen years but I still love some great young adult reads.


Divergent series – Veronica Roth. This was a book club pick. We wanted to read it before we saw the movie. I still have not seen the movie. I need to get on that. Even though we had only picked the first book in the trilogy we had all read all three of the books. This nevers happens. The series was interesting and a very easy read. We all had to finish it to find out what happened in the end.

Beautiful Creatures – Kami Garcia &  Margaret Stohl. This was another book  club pick. One of those books to read before the movie books. I could not put this book down. Filled with lots of Southern personality. Ethan’s world will never be the same after he meets Lena (a caster). Ethan soon discovers a world full of casters (both light and dark), seers, incubases and sirens. Ethan tries to save Lena from becoming a dark caster. The rest of the books in the Caster Chronicles are on my winter TBR list.

Miss Peregrine’s School For Peculiar Children and Holllow City – Ransom Riggs. This series takes you away to another world. Filled with wonderfully scary pictures. A group of peculiar children set out to save the world. I cannot wait for the third book in this series.

Flavia de Luce series – Alan Bradley. Flavis is a young girl living in her family’s ancestral manor home in post WWII England. Flavis spends her days learning chemisty in her uncle’s Victorian chemistry lab. She has a fascination for piosion and love to solve local murers. Delightfully charming. I am addicted to this series.

The Fault in Our Stars and Looking For Alaska – John Green. These were both book club books. We choose two for that month in case some did not fel like reading a book about kids dying with cancer ( The Fault in Our Stars). It was my first time reading John Green. I read The Fault in Our Stars first. As soon as I finished it I started Looking for Alaska. John Green captures teen angst with incredible skill, understanding and compassion. These books are so different but equally as good. I have added the rest of John Green’s books to my TBR list.
