Since many schools are on Spring Break this upcoming week, I wanted to add to my recommendations list for possible spring break reads!
These are some of my favorite Young Adult (YA) books. I’ll give my reasons for recommending these books, and, if they sound interesting to you, feel free to look up a summary.
If you are looking for something with a more romantic tone:
- The Abandoned Trilogy by Meg Cabot
- The books are Abandoned, Underworld, and Awakened. Meg Cabot is an amazing writer, and you won’t go wrong reading any of her books. These books take a very fresh look at the Persephone and Hades mythology. The trilogy is romantic and compelling.
- Hush Hush Trilogy by Becca Fitzpatrick
- This is the first book in a trilogy, and you will get hooked! Fitzpatrick did an incredible job creating a riveting plot line. I couldn’t put the book down as I was reading it! The twists she throws in are incredible! It is a very easy read and would be perfect for chilling on the beach or at home.
If you are looking for a different kind of book:
- Unwind by Neal Shusterman
- This is the first book in a series. I have only read this book, but I highly recommend it if you are looking to expand your mind. This book really makes you think about so many things. I honestly don’t know exactly how to describe it, except to say that when I was finished, I had to put it down and take a while to think about it. This is definitely a great book for a book club because it brings up all kinds of topics to discuss.
If you are looking for a historical/paranormal/romance read:
- The Red Queen’s Daughter by Jacqueline Kolosov
- I love this book. Absolutely love it. The author pulls you into the world of England in the mid-1500s with the promise of magic, suspicion, and love. It takes a completely different look at the life of Queen Elizabeth I. I would highly recommend it if you like books that have a slight historical edge to them. This is a book that I love to reread.
If you are looking for a good fantasy book:
- Mistwood by Leah Cypress
- This is one of those books that I constantly reread. The world that Cypress creates is full of love, suspicion, confusion, and secrets. Nothing is quite as it seems throughout the entire book. I found myself really relating to the main character and feeling her struggle throughout the book.
