I don't have a review for you today - mainly because I foolishly returned the book I really want to review to the library, and nothing else is catching my interest enough to write about this second.

Instead I'm sharing a great list of recommendations for YA fantasy books for people to check out. YA fantasy is really one of my favourite sections of the genre (as you might have noticed), and I'm always excited to see other people's lists of their choices from the multitudes.

The list is over here at EPBOT (which is a great geeky blog written by the hilarious author of the CakeWrecks blog): The Best YA Fantasy Books. Also check the comments for more suggestions for books both recent and older.

Side note: Have you guys noticed I slide in and out of using British/Canadian spelling? I apologise for that! I try to standardize it one way or another and then the 'u's and 's's just come tripping out of my fingers. I blame spending half my childhood in Canada...or possibly writing British dialogue for the past five years or so.


  1. Here's my recs for you if you haven't read them yet:

    Goddess of Yesterday, Caroline B. Cooney:

    Book of a Thousand Days: Shannon Hale:

    The Queen's Thief series, Megan Whalen Turner:

    When You Reach Me, Rebecca Stead:

    User-Unfriendly, Vivian Vande Velde:

    Crown Duel, Sherwood Smith:

    War of the Seasons: The Human, Janine Spendlove:

    Ok, that's probably enough for now!

  2. Ooh, thank you! Of those, I've only read Crown Duel but I so enjoy Sherwood Smith.

    I have The Queen's Thief books on my Kindle - along with Janine's book which I really need to read! There are too many dang books. I want to read all of them RIGHT NOW.

  3. The Queen's Thief books are SO good! (Janine's is too - and I'm beta'ing the second which is even better!)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I read and adore each one.
