YA Books That You May Not Have Read, but You should

So, Kelly is doing a post about some of the less well known books. I am mixing unknown books with book trailer. So they are all pretty recent. I hope you enjoy and check them out.
9. Hold Still by Nina Lacour
This book is really recent, but I loved this book. It was amazing and you should read it... like now.

8. The Dust of 100 Dogs by AS King
This book was really unique. I love the characters and the whole concept.

7. Lament and Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater
Shiver has made her books a bit more popular. I like Lament more then Shiver. Maybe it is, because I distrust werewolves. Since Courtney Summers said that they will make me broke. Also, Faeries are much more kickass. I love this series, it is totally awesome. Their isn't a trailer for Lament... so you get to see Ballad.

6. Undone by Brooke Taylor
I found this book to be interesting. I love the characters and the plot was interesting.

5. The Sky Always Hears Me and the Hills Don't Mind by Kirstin Cronn-Mills
This book was awesome. I devoured it in less then a day.

4. Give Up The Ghost by Megan Crewe
This book was really unique. It was such a great book and a quick read.

3. Impossible by Nancy Werlin
This plot is amazing and unlike anything that I have read. I also love the song that this book is based on.

2. Alive and Well in Prague, New York by Daphne Grab
I loved Matisse. She was such a great character. The plot was also good.

1. Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers
I love this book. I could read this a million times and not be sick of it.


  1. Great post! I just put the ones I have yet to read on my wish list.

  2. Oh yay! Dust of 100 Dogs is on my list too!

  4. Thanks for sharing, I actually read none of these books lol but I have a few sitting in my TBR pile..

  5. I'll move "Cracked Up to Be" to the top of my TBR pile. I loved "Some Girls Are."

  6. I love that Cracked Up to Be made #1 on your list! Some cool titles on here that I've seen mentioned but now I know I need to check them out!

  7. i loved Cracked Up to be! and I need to read dust of 100 dogs!

  8. Dust of 100 Dogs was on another list, so that just ratchets it up another notch in my TBR list for me. :D

  9. I love that you did this in book trailers! Fun list.
