10 Young Adult Books to Add to Our Reading List

deep blue half cover ya books

So, this is my first time recommending so many books in one go, but I hope to make a couple of more like this one in the future. I have not read the books I am about to name but the titles called to me or the covers (mostly the covers), so I want to share them with all the readers out there looking for something new to add to their reading list.

I picked these 10 in the Young Adult section, but they might have some fantasy in them as well. Though I am thinking of making another list, as I mentioned, but just for the magical, fantastical books out there. Unless you want to know about other genres then let me know in the comments. You will find the link to each book at the end of every description. Alright, here we go.

10 Young Adult Books



The Frey Saga, Book 1

Author: Melissa Wright

Description: ‘Unaware she’s been bound from using magic, Frey leads a small, miserable life in the village where she’s sent after the death of her mother. But a tiny spark starts a fury of changes and she finds herself running from everything she’s ever known.’

Ebook: Frey

Project ELE


ELE, Book 1

Authors: Rebbeca Gober & Courtney Nuckels

Description: ‘When the government enacts Project ELE to preserve the human race after a devastating epidemic, survivors like Willow must adapt to new lives in shelters. But soon, Willow and her friends acquire unusual abilities that have far-reaching consequences.

Ebook: Project ELE

Second Hearts


The Wishes Series, Book 2

Author: GJ Walker-Smith

Description: ‘Charli Blake’s high tolerance for risk doesn’t always work in her favour. After a year of living out her dream of travelling the world, the sunny West African village of Kaimte would be her last stop. For Charli, nothing has changed. She’s travelled thousands of miles but hasn’t moved an inch.’

This one is part of a Series and we should probably read book 1 first which is: Saving Wishes 

Ebook: Second Hearts

The Viking’s Chosen


The Clan Hakon Series

Author: Quinn Loftis

Description: ‘Torben, a Viking general, is prophesized to take a foreign bride—and not just any—but a seer and healer like his mother. Allete Auvray of England is said to be just such a woman. Too bad his orders are to pillage her kingdom, and that she’s already pledged to marry the king of Tara.’

Ebook: The Viking Chosen

Black-Tie Christmas

Author: Jo Michaels

Description: ‘Falling in love wasn’t in Evelyn Hart’s plan for the holidays, but with a cute boy named Adam, and a little Christmas magic, she’ll get more than she could ever hope for.

Ebook: Black-Tie Christmas

Deep Blue Secret


The Water Keepers Series

Author: Christie Anderson

Description: ‘Sadie has the perfect life. But everything turns upside down when she’s rescued by a mysterious boy who won’t even tell her his name. As Sadie pushes for answers, she realizes her life isn’t as perfect as she thought. ‘

This one is already a completed Series so it might be worth it reading all of them at once.

Ebook: The Water Keepers Series

The Choice of Magic

The choice of magic book

Author: Michael G. Manning

Description: The ancient wizards lifted humanity from superstition, but the rise of sorcery destroyed their wisdom and replaced it with easy power. Yet, the last wizard of the old ways still survives, and his apprentice will catalyze the emergence of a new age.

Ebook: The Choice of Magic

Lies of Golden Straw

Ebook: Lies of Golden Straw



Author: Valerie Lynne Taylor

Description: ‘In a normal world where magic shouldn’t exist, Aadi Devereux has an imagination that opens doors to another world. Raez Goddard has been harried by nightmares all his life. When the two come together, they begin a journey that questions the meaning of destiny and proves that dreams can indeed become reality.

Ebook: Dreamworld




The Lunar Chronicles, Book 3

Author: Marissa Meyer

Description: ‘Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow.

Alright so this one, I already know that I am definitely going to read it, and I already bought a copy, which is waiting for me to finish Scarlet, so it is a must-read for me and no surprise there.

Goodreads: Cress 

That is it, readers. If you already had some of these on-hold then we have similar taste and if I helped you find a new book to add to your never-ending reading list (like mine) then awesome.

Let me know about other young adult books that you would like to read or have read, and let’s see if the lists keep on growing. Happy reading, lads and lasses!
