I don’t tend to read too much YA but when I do I am usually pleasantly surprised. This category was quite tough to decide actually as I kept swaying back and forth between my two favourites. I know some of you will groan at this but frankly I don’t care as I absolutely LOVED…..Twilight! I read that book when the film had first come out in the UK and there was so much hype about it but I wanted to read the book first. I had no idea what it was even about but I just adored it and then went on to read the next two in the series (still have Breaking Dawn on my pile). Anyway, I digress as that’s not the book I chose.
I picked The Hunger Games as my favourite. Again, I had heard a few rumblings about this book and picked it up knowing nothing about it. I was totally blown away! This book grabbed my by the throat and did not let me go throughout the whole book. I remember I read it on a flight from Manchester to New York and as soon as we landed I was practically dragging Mr Whisperer to the nearest Barnes & Noble to pick up the second book in the series!
One of the most exciting books I have ever read and it is in my Top 20 of all time! I insist that you read this book!
Do you ever read YA ficiton? Which other books could you recommend?
