Since deciding I wanted to write young adult fiction, I’ve made a huge effort to read broadly and across genre within this category. I’ve also tried to get my hands on anything that has been particularly popular or cannon. Still, there are some really big books, series, and authors that I haven’t gotten around to yet. These are the ten books or series I haven’t read yet that surprise me the most. Would love to hear any books your surprise you haven’t read yet or your opinions on the books from my list in the comments.
Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme!

I have heard such great things about the Gemma Doyle trilogy, but I’m yet to read it! I hope that you enjoy all of these books when you get around to them!
I’d tell you I love you bu then I’d have to kill you, is really good. Very clever.
I really need to read that one!
Hope you enjoy it, I am looking forward to reading book 2 in the series 🙂
It’s always good to know I’m not the last person on the planet who hasn’t read The Raven Boys! I’d like to read the Gemma Doyle trilogy, too. 🙂 Great list!
I know! It feels like everyone else has read those books. I definitely want to read them, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet.
I’ve read most of the books in your list. I loved VA especially.
My Top Ten Tuesday!
I definitely hope to read that one soon!
Some of my FAVORITES are on your list. Like Vampire Academy. (#1 series spot on my top series list), and Id’ Tell You I Love You But I’d Have To Kill You (How this was like my harry potter growing up. The ending of the series… *cries* good ending though). I read A Great and Terrible Beauty was good but I never finished the last book. The second one got weird… and the third well I just quit. FYI, This lullaby is good too. CoB is okay. Alright I’m done giving my opinions. 🙂
Thank you so much for the suggestions! Definitely hoping to read Vampire Academy and Ally Carter soon … also I can’t believe I haven’t read This Lullaby since I love Sarah Dessen. There are always so many books to read!
I’m going to need you to drop everything and read The Raven Boys right this minute, please and thank you! Lol. I LOVE that series, and I hope you get to read it soon. I also really enjoy Sarah Dessen’s books. 🙂
I know I know. I love Maggie Stiefvater, so I really don’t know why I haven’t gotten around to The Raven Boys yet. And I also love Sarah Dessen. I’ve read almost all of them except for this one.
Do iiiiiiiit. 🙂
I haven’t read much YA either but this list has a lot of books that I want to read. I’ve heard fabulous things about Maggie Stiefvater and the Ally Carter series just looks so fun. I want to try the Princess Academy books as well. Great list!
Gallagher Girls and Raven Boys should definitely be on your list if you’re looking to write – Ally Carter and Maggie Stiefvater have such different styles, but they’re both really incredible at what they do and I think it would be great to study their work from a writing perspective. Good luck! =)
Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
I need to read a couple of these books too LOL!! Here is my Top Ten Tuesday if you wanna check it out 🙂 http://bookbabble.weebly.com/blog/top-ten-tuesday1
I haven’t read Before I Fall either, and I’m absolutely ashamed! I have it checked out from the library, so hopefully I’ll get to it soon!
I’m glad that I’m not the only one who may be behind on reading the what’s what of YA. I hope that we both are able to finally finish crossing out some of these books from our lists.
