To start the blogger half of the fortnight, I’ve compiled a list of my ten favourite UKYA novels, all of which can be found on my UKYA bookshelf. Look out for my recommendations throughout the week!
Kiss, Date, Love, Hate by Luisa Plaja- I’ve chosen to include this because I’m totally in love with the idea of a computer programme that makes situations programmed into it come true. I loved every thing about this novel and so it was an obvious choice.
The Other Countess by Eve Edwards and The Girl in the Mask by Marie-Louise Jensen. Britain has such a rich history and, being the huge history nerd that I am, I love reading historical fiction. These are two of my favourite UK novels. The Other Countess because it’s set in my favourite time period, and The Girl in the Mask because I really connected with it.
Undone by Cat Clarke and Skin Deep by Laura Jarratt were two books that made me feel so emotional. Undone had me in tears, and Skin Deep had such a strong message. I loved them both!
Rockoholic by C.J. Skuse and Geek Girl by Holly Smale may be two of the funniest books I’ve ever read. One of the things I love the most about UKYA is that the humour is a lot more easier to understand to someone who lives in the country
Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman is a really good book dealing with big issues and it’s something that can really open your eyes. I loved it!
The Dark Heroine: Dinner With a Vampire by Abigail Gibbs is probably my favourite vampire novel of all time, and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t enjoy the majority on the market.
ACID by Emma Pass is only a book that I’ve read recently but it’s one of my favourite dystopian novels and has a very unique voice compared to other novels I’ve read. And it’s set in the UK. Bonus!
What are your favourite UKYA novels, and why?
