The 10 Best YA Books of 2018:
It Ends With You by S.K. Wright: I really enjoyed this book. I wasnt sure about it when I picked it up, but I was wonderful. I couldn’t put it down and ended up reading it in one sitting. I built slow but once it sped up I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. I am so glad I decided to read this book.
That’s Not What Happened by Kody Keplinger: This book was amazing. I honestly couldn’t put it down and have already lent it to my sister. It was raw, emotional and at times confronting. The topic was perfectly handled and I truly believe this book should be read by everyone.
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton: This book was fantastic. I will admit it took me a few chapters to get into it, but once I did I really enjoyed it. I love the whole concept and the way the characters looks at themselves and beauty. I am glad that there is more coming because I definitely havent had my fill of the Belles.
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins: I really enjoyed this book. I haven’t read anything like it in a long time, so I really got into it. It had great pacing, interesting characters and a pretty freaky plot. I didn’t guess who the killer was, I was surprised when it was revealed. I also loved that the story continued after the killer was revealed so we were able to learn more about the killer and the victims. If you are looking for a really engaging read, this is the book for you.
Out Of The Easy by Ruta Sepetys: I loved this book. This is the second book by Ruta Sepetys that I have read and I am in love with her writing. This book had amazing characters in a great setting and an unbelievable plot. I wish it hadn’t ended. I cant wait to read more books by Ruta Sepetys.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas: This book was fantastic. I can’t believe I waited so long to read it. This book is an absolute must read for everyone. It is brilliantly written, powerful and utterly gut-wrenching. If you havent yet read this book you need to do it now.
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green. You have to read this book. I honestly didn’t know what to expect going into this book. It turns out I should have expected awesomeness. This book had an amazing plot, fantastic characters and wonderful writing. I am so glad I read it an I cant wait to share it with my friends and family.
Broken Things by Lauren Oliver: This book was fantastic. I wasnt sure about it going into it, but after a few chapters I was hooked. I loved the emotional pull this story had, the mess that was left behind and how people try to move on after a tragedy. The characters and their interactions with each other really grounded this book and made me excited to find out more.
The Astonishing Colour Of After by Emily X.R. Pan: I had mixed feelings about this book the entire way through it. I think I was concerned that there was so much going on and I didn’t know how it was going to come together. I really didn’t need to worry, it was a wonderful book that I am so glad that I read.
A Map Of Days by Ransom Riggs: I loved this series, so I was equal parts excited and nervous about reading this book. Turns out I didn’t need to be, it was fabulous. I loved getting to catch up with the peculiar’s and seeing them journey through America was awesome. Setting this book in America made for a fresh new adventure for the reader. I am so glad I read this book. If you havent read this book. Do it now.
Well that’s it from me. Let me know your favourite YA books of 2018.
