Suggested Reads for Young Adults

Life, Liberty, and Pursuit has a couple reviews up (here and here), which makes me all kinds of happy.

But you can't beat this ROUSING five second review from MY NIECE, Jenny (aka Mikuru):

She obviously has inherited her father's sense of humor. Other humorous videos by Jenny *cough* Mikuru *cough* can be found here.

AND I did a very fun interview with the ever-delightful Ink (Bryan Russell) on his blog, The Alchemy of Writing.

Returning to our regularly scheduled program ...

Today I wanted to share all the awesome YA recommendations that came out of last week's contest! Like most people, I take personal recommendations more seriously than hype, so thanks for taking the time to share your most-favored-status books.

These haven't been reviewed by Ink Spells, but I've put reading levels and Common Sense Media ratings on them, when available. Also, I've linked to CSM reviews and other reviews, especially from Reading Teen (which has content guidelines). This list is an amalgamation of last week's recommendations, Reading Teen's Top Picks, and previous recommendations here at Ink Spells.

p.s. You can print the list!

    Thanks for the list!

  3. @Shannon I know, right? She cracks me up. ;)

  4. Ooooh! A list. My daughter is prone to standing in the library and pouting that she can't find anything. Seriously. But you've just given me a secret weapon! (insert evil laughter)
