The past 3-5 years have been when I really got into YA fiction. Of course there's been reading slumps, but before and after them, I have been on a role in reading. Here are my all-time favourites:
1. The Fault In Our Stars by: John Green
This.book.was.perfect. It was adorable, sad and yet beautiful all at the same time.
2. Paper Towns by: John Green
Yes, another John Green. This is my favourite of his books, it was original, funny and extremely captivating.
3. Looking for Alaska by: John Green
This is the last John Green, I promise. The point is, he is one of my favourite authors that I discovered 3 years ago, and this was his debut. The writing was gorgeous.
4. Eleanor and Park by: Rainbow Rowell
Omg this book was too cute. It had romance, music and drama all rolled into one.
5. Where She Went by: Gayle Forman
This was actually the sequel to If I Stay, but I enjoyed Where She Went much more. It was inspiring.
6. Thirteen Reasons Why by: Jay Asher
Thirteen Reason's was incredibly moving. It's very dramatic and heavy, but it's a real eye-opener.
7. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by: Stephen Chbosky
Amazing. This book was inspiring, funny, sad and overall a great read for anyone who is struggling with being "an outcast" in society.
8. The Great Gatsby by: F. Scott. Fitzgerald
By far, the best classic book I've ever read. Gatsby's story pulls at your heart, and I would highly recommend book and movie.
9. Delirium by: Lauren Oliver
All I can say about this series is: wow. It was one of the first YA books I ever read, so it has a special place in my heart. Also contains high amounts of romance and fictional-crushes.
10. Divergent by: Veronica Roth
Divergent had such amazing creativity, a great heroine and a great leading man. Perfect.
There are many more that I'm missing, and it was hard to narrow it down! What are your favourite books from the past few years?
