I was thinking about some of my favourite books, and how they don’t have much hype surrounding them, in fact, I haven’t really heard anyone speak about these books. So here I have my top 5 YA novels that really do deserve more hype. If you click on the books, it will open a new page and take you to the Goodreads blurb for that book. So, without further ado, here are my top 5 YA books that I think deserve more hype
1. The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg
When I got this for my iPad, I had never heard of it or seen it in the booktube community or anything like that, and after reading it I am so shocked it is not a well-known novel. This book is hands down, my favourite YA book of all time, and that is saying a lot.
This story has something for everyone while not being overpowering. It has romance, drama, adventure (kind of), heartbreak and it also has some magical/paranormal type themes. Please, read it, this book deserves so much more hype and everyone I have spoken to about this book has absolutely loved it.
2. First Love by James Patterson
I read this book in early 2014, it was actually one of the first books I read last year so there’s that. Now, I did in fact read the blurb on this one just so you know. Anyway, I don’t remember enough about it to give a full blown review or anything, but I do remember reading it in one sitting. I really enjoyed this book (I had given it a 4 star rating on Goodreads so I must have enjoyed it).
3. Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
I also read this book at the beginning of 2014 and I thought it was such a lovely book about friendship, with a hint of romance in there. The main character goes through some pretty extensive character development, and as much as I hate saying this, but this book really is a book about self-discovery. Just Listen may not be for everyone, but I think it is worth the read.
4. A little Something Different by Sandy Hall
This story has to be one of the cutest, most unique pieces of work I have ever read. Basically this is a love story, told by everyone except for the two main characters. It is such an interesting way to read a love story like this, you hear from so many different people, from the lecturer at university to a squirrel, yes that’s right, a squirrel. Such an adorable, quick read that I am sure everyone will love.
5. Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louse Rozett
This book I actually read when I was still in High School (2012). I thought it was a very good book that touched on some delicate topics. It is extremely well written and the story was engaging and very relatable. I literally haven’t seen anyone talking about this but I highly recommend it.
