Thanks! This is a great list. I am excited to check out The Witness by Josh McDowell. I have never heard of him before. I am very excited to check out a new Christian author. Has he written other books before? Thanks for your input. I also think hunger games is a great young adult book!
Thank you for you words. Josh McDowell is a lecturer with over a 100 books, but only one is fiction up until now. Many people are expecting more fictional stories from him. There is a very small biography on the book review.
I absolutely loved the Skulduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy when I was younger. Heck, I bought the finale and read it even as an adult! It is the definition of badass (at least to a young adult’s mind!). The author is from Ireland, so maybe it’s more prominent in the UK than the US, but either way, you should definitely check it out. It’s got elemental magic, death magic, assassins, and much much more. Don’t even get me started on the character development! To summarise: skulduggery pleasant, check it out.
Thanks for sharing your idea. We really like it when people interact and come up with suggestions.
That is a great tip you got there. We will follow your advice. It’s already on our TO-DO list.
I like this list of books, there are books suitable for children with different interests.
I would recommend some of the books to my nephew and niece, who are in the age group for these books.
I would also like to go through some myself. Recently, I’ve been reading a lot about English history and would be great to read The White Horse King.
Thank you for the suggestions.
Thank you so much for sharing your words.
There’s nothing like having an assortment of books in a list to be able choose from. And to top it all off, wonderfully written reviews of each of the recommendations are included! I see you also have book lists for adults and young children. You must truly love providing this service, as it is excellently done. Nice job guys and thanks for providing a go-to place for book selections.
Thank you so much for your kind words. If you have any suggestions, please, feel free to stop by again and give us a heads up.
I really like your website. I’m a writer, and I run a writers’ group called Lewiston Writers’ Group here in Western New York. I have two questions – one is, would you consider adding “memoir” to your list of genres you cover on your website? Several members of my group, including myself, have written memoirs. Second question – how do you choose which books you’ll review for your website? Many of ours are published and available on Amazon – we’d love to be included on your site! Great work you’re doing here.
Thank you for your support. /// Answering your questions:
1- Our website is about book reviews and a little bit about their authors. The idea of having contributions like memoirs has never been discussed between us and, honestly, I don’t think it is one of our goals. But I will put it as a suggestion in our next briefing. We do not reject any ideas that come up from our visitors without discussing them first.
2 – There are 3 ways that we choose the books. a) What we are reading at the moment. b) Authors we like to read and the criterium to which goes first is popularity. c) Publishers send us books for uncompromised reviews
Keep in mind, though, that we are transferring from an older blog, so the great majority at the moment is from those reviews, which are being moved here by their date. Older reviews first.
I like your article on books for young adults, this is great for people like me who have young adults in the family but are not aware which books are best to give them as gifts.
what ages is considered young adults, would this be children in their teenage years?
Nice to see you around again. Those would be teenagers, yes.
Thanks for coming back.
I’m glad 3 Harry Potter tittles made it to your list. I remember the first few books was kind of like a short story for children rather than teen. It’s amazing how the story evolves and develop from book 4 onward that I actually bought book 5-7 and re-read them a couple of times.
Thanks for sharing your impressions.
I feel like children reading books is a dying art, its sad, but its true, the only thing they integrate with is technology, nothing wrong with that, but from time to time an old fashioned book reading with your kid is an amazing past time, I am glad I ran across this site, I’ll be sure to check it out more often for tips and referrals.
I feel the same sadness; Thanks for sharing your opinion. The resistance continues! 🙂
Hi there! This is a great article and provides you with many options to choose from! All of these books are suitable for young adults, and I especially like how you’ve added in the Harry Potter series, as it is one of my favorites.
All in all this is a great list, and I’m sure many young people will appreciate it.
Thanks for your kind words. I look forward into seeing you around again. Cheers!
My nephew has just started to read the Harry Potter series and seems to enjoy them very much. I’m always looking for books to encourage his reading habit. Do you have any suggestions on other book series along these lines that he might enjoy? Another series that he’s seemed to enjoy is the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. I look forward to your suggestions.
Hello, Momma Bear,
My first snap suggestions would be J. S. Lewis and Tolkien, but there are many other options available. As the blog develops, we will be adding more and more children’s options. Browse around. Thanks for sharing your experience. Cheers!
Excellent list! Loved the Genre and the authors mentioned
I just love Sherlock Holmes stories, and I never heard about “The Adventure of the Six Napoleons”. I just placed it in my to read list.
Two books came to my mind that I thought might be a good addition: “The stand” by Stephen King and “The hobbit” by J.R.R Tolkien. I think both belong to the fantasy Genre (With a touch of horror in “The stand”) and both are very easy to read, but still have depth so the reader can dive in and enjoy.
What do you think?
I think you just dived into OUR minds. haha. Both authors are on our to-do list, which is long, but they are near the top. We already have reviews on both authors:
The Shining by Stephen King
The Fellowship of the Ring by Tolkien
It is our intention to increase the list, of course… So much to do…. 🙂 Your suggestions have been noted.
Thanks for you kind support and ideas. Cheers!
I have four children ranging in age of 13 to 25. We all enjoy reading books, I’m always on the lookout to buy for my kids to read or give as gifts to the older ones. You’ve made a lot of great suggestions here, I can see you even have the oldie Goldie’s in here. Love it.
It would be great if you could write about what you liked about the book without giving the plots away compared to what you didn’t like.
Thanks for sharing your opinion and words of support. Cheers!
I haven’t heard or read any of those books but some of them do seem interesting as I do love a good read. I absolutely love to read and I like how these books are aimed at young adults like myself. I’m really into non-fiction, biographical texts, spiritual and religious and short stories.
Thanks for coming to our website and leaving your opinion. We appreciate it. Cheers!
