Here is a list. A really interesting list. From Rolling Stone Magazine no less.
Unfortunately it is horrible to view, but that is probably it’s only fault. Some books I hadn’t heard of and will go hunting for. Some books which are books I’ve loved for years. Check
it out here! Here is the blurb from the site.
In the past decade, young adult literature has gone from a loosely defined term describing books marketed to teenagers to a cultural force that has spawned such blockbuster hits as Twilight, The Hunger Games, Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars (all of which have been made into movies, with Fault hitting theaters on June 6th). Trying to decide on the most essential books in the genre is a bit like trying to empty the ocean using a thimble. We’ve parsed through hundreds of stories about dystopian societies, supernatural love triangles, awkward first crushes and many a mixed-tape featuring the Smiths to bring you this core collection of classic staples and overlooked gems. Consider it your summer reading list. By Anna Fitzpatrick
