I really liked this one. The only criticism would be that there are so many side characters that it was hard to keep everyone straight. Loved the ending. Will def read the sequel! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Some of my fantasy TBR books. Anyone like or not like any of these titles? Suggestions wanted!! Thx!!

Merethebookgal I've read The Crown's Game and An Ember in the Ashes and enjoyed both and I'm currently reading A Torch Against the Night. "Ember" and "Torch" have a little more violence than "Crown," but they're all good ? 3y
annahenke Out of these my two favorites are the Sabaa Tahir books! 3y

That was awesome! Looking forward to reading the next book, but it's gonna have to wait a bit. I FINALLY tracked down the last His Dark Materials book (for $1) and I've always wanted to read this series.

Well executed dystopian/sci fi book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hello Hello!!

I've been meaning to do this for a bit...but alas, life and such. I would love to start a Young(ish) Adult Book Club here on Litsy. I haven't come across any clubs yet that are solely for reading YA, and I know a lot of us do. Plus, this will be nice b/c YA books don't take long to read!! So you can still partake in other clubs :)

Open to anyone, young or young(ish). Leave a comment if interested! And recommend a book, too!

Onceuponatime I love reading YA and middle grade! Will it be focused mostly on high school level, or would you have some MG choices too (like Kate DiCamillo, Katherine Applegate & others)? 3y
youngish-adult @Onceuponatime I think we should do MG too :) There's a series I have been wanting to read...The Enchanted Forest Chronicles. Have you read them? 3y
samthebookdragon I mainly read YA, so I would love a group to read YA with!!! 3y
See All 15 Comments
wanderlustywriter I would be in! I read a ton of YA (though not much MG) 3y
Daisey I teach jr. high and read a lot of mg/ya, so I would be interested. However, I'm also not so good at book clubs since if a book is not already on my TBR and/or I don't have free and easy access, I usually will just skip it rather than buying. 3y
BookNerdBritt Definitely interested! I'm all about YA and have been wanting to read more MG. 3y
LiteraryinLititz I teach middle school English and love to read YA books interspersed with the rest of my reading. :) Some of my recent (to me) favorites are anything by Rebecca Stead and Out of My Mind (by Draper). 3y
Sue I tend to read a lot of YA :) 3y
kgriffith Interested :) I'm going back to school in -- EEP -- 3.5 weeks! and will want to sneak in a little fun reading here and there, so this might be perfect 😊 3y
Peddler410 Totally interested! 3y
Peddler410 I'm a middle school librarian and YA makes up a ton of my reading. 3y
AStoriedSoul Totally interested in this! I read a lot of YA and haven't seen a book club for it either. Yay! 3y
AStoriedSoul For a book rec: I'm on And I Darken and I think it would make a great pick. 3y
Dasquirt8 Totally interested. They are usually quick fun reads! 3y
aecawthon I would love to join! I teach Jr High English, so I'm always reading YA lit so I can talk to my students and recommend books. I've recently loved the Throne of Glass series. 3y
