Erin’s Summer YA Reading List


Here they are, in no particular order…

Summer YA Books1


  1. Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
    I spotted this on the “Staff Picks” display at the library I’m working at this summer.

  2. The Mysterious Adventures of Pauline Bovary by Edeet Ravel
    I enjoyed The Thrilling Adventures of Pauline de Lammermoor (book one in the Pauline, btw series) and I’m eager to find out what Pauline does next.

  3. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
    There’s been a ton of buzz about this book in the blogosphere and mainstream media. Check out this chilling book trailer.

  4. Lost at Sea by Bryan Lee O’Malley
    I picked this up at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival just before I left for Calgary.

  5. The Plain Janes by Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg
    A graphic novel with a cute title—plus, I’ve heard it’s pretty good.

  6. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
    Apparently, zombies are the new vampires. Plus, who doesn’t love Pride and Prejudice?

  7. The Uninvited by Tim Wynne-Jones
    According to this review in Quill and Quire, Wynne-Jones’ latest novel has “all the appeal of a sexy vampire, sans the fangs.”

  8. The Lit Report by Sarah N. Harvey
    One of the few titles on this year’s OLA Best Bets for young adults that I haven’t read yet.

  9. Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard
    I love the title. I’m a sucker for anything that alludes to Pride and Prejudice.

  10. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
    A friend recently described this as the funniest book she’d ever read. That’s a pretty good endorsement, I’d say.
