My Top Ten Young Adult Books

    I got the idea to post my top ten favorite young adult books from a post over at the Go Teen Writers Facebook group. So, here is my top ten!

1. To Darkness Fled by Jill Williamson
2. Divergent by Veronica Roth
3. The Tide of Unmaking by Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper
4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
5. Enclave by Ann Aguirre
6. Swords of the Six by Scott Appleton
7. Solitary by Travis Thrasher
8. DragonSpell by Donita K. Paul
9. Raising Dragons by Bryan Davis
10. The Last Thing I Remember by Andrew Klavan

    Some of you may be thinking "How dare this bloke put Andrew Klavan's The Last Thing I Remember at the VERY BOTTOM??!!" Well, I had a hard time numbering these books because they were all so FANTASTIC! Realistically, they were all close to a tie! But I couldn't do that because that would defeat the purpose of having a top ten. :) Anyway...

    Have you read any of those books? If so, which ones were your favorites?

God bless,


  1. I have read the last three books on this list. The Last Thing I Remember (hey, was it the last Book you remembered? lol) was good. It was intense with a lot of action and some good questions. Dragonspell is a good book too. I like the characters and the world Donita created. Raising Dragons was good too. I read it several years ago. Not my favorite... Dragonspell is probably my favorite of those three.
    The four books in the Auralia Thread series are probably on my top five favorite books that I have ever read. Charles Dickens, one of his books might be the fifth.

  2. Nice list, Brian! I've read Hunger Games, Dragonspell, and I'm currently reading The Tide of Unmaking. I've read By Darkness Hid, and want to read To Darkness Fled so much! Some on this list I do want to read, though. Maybe I should think about my top ten...
