Top 25 YA Books/Series for I Read YA Week!
It’s that time again! Happy I read YA week! The blog I wrote for I read YA week last year is fitting this year as the theme is #YAStandsFor, and my blog was all about Why #IReadYA. The year before that, I listed ten YA books that people should be reading.
Now I’m going one step further. I’m going to list my top twenty-five YA stand-alone books and series. Every book/series on this list should be added to your TBR list immediately! They are phenomenal!

Now I’m not saying these are the top twenty-five ever; they’re just my current top twenty-five. I know for a fact there are a few books on my TBR list that’ll make it onto this list. That’s one of the great things about YA. When you think it can’t get any better, a book comes along that blows you apart, breaking you and fixing you all at once.
And that’s why I read YA.
If there’s a book that made you feel this way that I don’t have on my list, please let me know! I live for that kind of YA!
