2017 Top Five

Dear Teen Peeps,

Like last year, I haven’t read nearly as much YA as I wanted to/should have, due to number of tedious, adult-ing reasons. So here is a leaner, meaner list of my top five best YA reads of 2017. I mean, I could have dragged the list out to ten, but that would have taken away from the absolute awesomeness of these five, utterly top-notch books. Please note that there has been absolutely no attempt to balance this list by age, gender or genre. These are just my “from-the-gut” favorites of the books I read this year.  Click on the title to go right to the review.

American Street by Ibi Zoboi

Berserker by Emmy Laybourne

Be True to Me by Adele Griffin

Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart

Vincent & Theo by Deborah Heiligman

  1. My top five:
    The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
    Far From the Tree by Robin Benway
    Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
    Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner
    Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

    I liked American Street, Berserker, and Genuine Fraud, but none of them made my top 10.

  2. Oh I so loved your list and I agree with all of them but I still have to get to Vincent and Theo! Thanks so much for your wonderful reviews & recommendations!
