This week, Top Ten Tuesday is a holiday gift guide freebie. But why should you buy other people books when you can ask for books for yourself instead?
These are the ten YA novels that you really need to put down on your Christmas list, and that you definitely shouldn't be disappointed to find under your tree on Christmas day.
10) 'Everything Everything' by Nicola Yoon
9) 'Nothing Tastes As Good' by Claire Hennessy
8) 'Radio Silence' by Alice Oseman
'Radio Silence' was so much fun that I laughed out loud at multiple points. The storytelling is unique, and I love Alice Oseman's writing style - I'm hoping to get 'Solitaire' for Christmas, so I can read her other novel.
I read 'Paper Butterflies' with the #SundayYA book club, and it broke my heart. If you'd like to feel emotional and thankful for your family this Christmas, don't look any further than this extremely difficult read.
5) 'One' by Sarah Crossan
4) 'Am I Normal Yet?' by Holly Bourne
3) 'The Lie Tree' by Frances Hardinge
2) 'The Sin Eater's Daughter' by Melinda Salisbury
1) 'Beautiful Broken Things' by Sara Barnard
Sara Barnard's debut is magnificent. With her second novel coming out at the start of 2017, you should definitely read 'Beautiful Broken Things' first - then you know what to expect from her brilliant writing, which focuses on friendship in this book.
I hope you enjoyed this Top Ten Tuesday and put some of these books on your Christmas list! What books should I ask for?
