Been Reading Some Outstanding YA!

I’ve been reading such incredible YA lately, it’s even cutting into my writing time! But I can’t help myself. It’s just SO good!

I thought I would share a few titles here. I won’t even get into the latest David Gilmour novel, The Perfect Order of Things! Not a YA, I just finished it and was once again reminded that Gilmour is an outstanding writer…maybe even the best! He blows me away every single time. I have a tendency to forget about him between books, for some reason. Then his next book comes out and I am once again swept off my feet by his words. It’s a love/hate relationship. I’m crazy jealous that he can perfect every sentence he puts to paper…but I swoon with mad-love for those sentences.

Here are a few picks from recent reading:

 

I included two that I am still currently reading. Voiceless by Caroline Wissing and Velveteen by Daniel Marks. Both of these books will be 5-star, unless a dinosaur pops out at the end and eats all the characters, a la deus ex machina. (-:

You can find my reviews at TRY THIS BOOK ON FOR SIZE

I fell in love with each of these 6 books…all are worth checking out. Voiceless was written by a friend and it is incredible. Still devouring it right now! And Velveteen doesn’t hit the shelves until the fall. It’s one you should mark on your calendar…a perfect treat of a YA book. It has humour, horror and intelligence. I’m loving it!

Something worth mentioning: If you read a book and love it enough to recommend it, do the author a favour and review it on Goodreads, Amazon, Shelfari or any of the other review sites on the web. SHARE the love. (-:
