March in YA : Ones to Watch
March definitely seems like a quiet month on the YA front. Or maybe that’s just me? It’s going to be a month of catching up on books that I’ve missed out on in previous months and also getting ahead for the next few months too.
Here are some of the books I think you should be watching out for in March:
Crush by Eve Ainsworth
I first read Crush last summer and absolutely loved it. It’s quite easy to get fed up with stereotypical “boy meets girl and they fall madly in love, the end” type novels, so Crush is very refreshing. It tells the story of Anna who meets a boy called Will. He’s everything that Anna has ever dreamt of, but how much does perfect cost? It’s an emotional but captivating story told in a dual narrative about the toxic relationship, and dual narrative is what Eve does best.
The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
The Girl From Everywhere has one of the most amazing and intriguing synopses that I’ve read this year: a time-travelling pirate ship. Nix and her father can travel around the world and through time using old maps, but her father is determined to find the map that will reunite him with Nix’s mother. Problem is, this could erase Nix’s existence. How cool does that sound?! READ IT!
Half Lost by Sally Green
This is the concluding book in the Half Bad trilogy and I’m not entirely sure if I can handle the trilogy ending yet. The books have been so, so good and it will be very hard to say goodbye once Half Lost is over. If you haven’t started the trilogy yet, you should! You won’t regret it.
