The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chboksy
I’m not entirely even sure what this book is about. I think it’s a coming-of-age story? And they made a movie that looks pretty good starring Emma Watson? I think I’ve never read it because I don’t really know what it is.
Anything by Sarah Dessen
I know Dessen is incredibly popular and that Netflix has plans to adapt a number of her books. However, I don’t read much YA romance, so I never got around to reading anything by her!
Caraval trilogy by Stephanie Garber
I admit this trilogy actually looks pretty interesting. I think it was just one of those times when I saw the books EVERYWHERE and somehow the over-saturation made me lose interest.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Contemporary YA is not something I read a lot of–I prefer fantasy. So John Green’s work never really piqued my interest. Then I read one book by him and I didn’t like it.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
It’s probably a good book, but I just don’t read a lot of YA romance.
Legend Series by Marie Lu
What is this series even about? Maybe I should look it up? It’s probably actually really good?
A Court of Thorns and Roses Series by Sarah J. Maas
Okay, I don’t really know anything about Sarah J. Maas’ work except that some it caused some controversy for having explicit sex scenes and people thought it should not have been marketed as YA. That’s…not really something that makes me think, “Yes, I need to pick up this book!” Even though it’s not the author’s fault.
Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas
Now that there seem to be at least seven books in this series, I have to admit I’m a little afraid to even begin reading it. That’s a lot of books! A lot of commitment!
Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer
Because I have never read a Twilight book, I have no comment on the quality of the work. I just didn’t read the series because paranormal romance isn’t a genre I really enjoy.
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
The movie trailer looked cute. But, again, it’s a contemporary YA romance, not something I’ve ever felt strongly about picking up.
What do you think? Am I missing out? Should I try some of these popular reads?
