Five Fantasy Young Adult Novels You Need To Read

by Esme Addison

As a reader, my interests are pretty diverse. But when it comes to young adult novels, I generally read fantasy only. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s the gorgeous covers? Sometimes I want to write a YA fantasy just to get that pretty cover.

I jest. (sort of)

I’m a fantasy writer too. Occasionally I veer into scifi land, which makes me a writer of speculative fiction. I like that title. It’s accurate. But my fantasy novel with occasional scifi elements is also a mystery. And it’s also cozy. Like the tv show Charmed (original version) was cozy.

I don’t recall there being so many amazing YA novels to choose from when I was actually a young adult. I go to the bookstore now and walk through the YA section and sooo many books call to me. It’s hard to make a decision sometimes. I feel like a kid in a candy store. 🙂

But there have been five YA novels in particular that really resonated with me. I mean – okay – LOVED them. I have to share them.
