Top Ten All Time Favorite Books in X Genre (you pick the genre) - I choose YOUNG ADULT FICTION (not in any particular order, no way I would be able to put these from "worst" to best)
1. The Hunger Games Trilogy
So wonderful and imaginative and definitely worth several reads. I especially love the dynamic between Katniss and Peeta. Catching Fire is my favorite out of the three, in case you're interested.
2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I just posted by review for this book yesterday - I can't believe I did not run to the bookstore the moment this book was released... silly me. I don't think I have ever identified with a book so much as I did with this one.
3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I remember reading this during my freshman year in university - I was supposed to be writing a boring theatre essay, and instead I was reading this on my ereader in a completely dark dorm room (the light bulb ran out and I had to wait til the next day to get it fixed). I can't wait for the final book in the trilogy/series by Perkins - I'll definitely read this one and Lola again during the summer.
4. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
I was fortunate enough to get an ARC of this book back in the day and I remember devouring the whole book on one sitting. I don't really remember much of the details anymore (which means I definitely need to read this again), but I do remember enjoying it quite a bit. I just finished with Oliver's Panic during the weekend and really enjoyed that one too.
5. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Such a powerful, well-written book I definitely need to read again at some point!
6. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Andersen
I remember spending one New Year's Eve reading this book instead of going to a New Year's Eve celebration...
7. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight & This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
These both were just such cute books that I had to include them on this list. These both are on the top of my summer 2014 reads list - perfect beach/backyard reads in the sun.
8. Anything Sarah Dessen has ever written
That woman really is a magician when it comes to creating perfect YA characters and stories.
9. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
Do I even have to explain myself?
10. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
This one was a complete surprise for me. I bought it because I liked the cover and I knew there was a film coming out based on it. So touching, funny and realistic. LOVED IT!
(HOX! I did not count Harry Potter series as YA - otherwise they would be right at the top of the list)
