Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme, GoodReads group here with all the topics + discussion!
This weeks topic is; Book List for Class on YA
This week topic is pretty cool, in honour of going ‘back to school’ this week we’re making a class reading list on a topic/genre of our choice.
I thought I would take this opportunity to recommend some YA books from different genres!
1) YA Feminist
Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu
Every class should have to read a feminist novel, in my opinion. It is an extremely important message to share and I feel Moxie does that well!
2) YA Fantasy
Spellslinger by Sebastien De Castell
Everyone likes a good fantasy, right? Sebastien De Castell was a new author to me this year. I picked up Spellslinger on a whim, not knowing anything about it and ended up loving it!
3) YA LGBT
Simon vs The Homosapien Agenda by Becki Albertali
Another important message; LGBT. Unfortunately, I haven’t read a lot of it, which I need to change but my favourite so far is Simon vs. It’s such a cute story and a must read in the LGBT genre!
4) YA Sci-fi
The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
The Illuminae Files are definitely some of my favourite sci-fi books, the unique format and fast paced plot is amazing. However, I have yet to read the final book, I know, I know, I need to get on it asap!
5) YA Romance
A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard
If you’re looking for a cute, fluffy romance, then I highly recommend this. It is a seriously adorable story that even warmed my cold heart.
