Between living on an island in the clouds and surviving when most of the world is dead, dystopia is still going strong. And not just dystopias – post apocalyptic fiction is right there too. Feast your eyes on these hot reads:


I just finished All Our Yesterdays, and I loved it! It was a super fun time-traveling read, and I’m so glad there are other books like it keeping in company.

Retellings/Different Perspectives

Retellings are still one of my favorite book trends. The books below offer different perspectives from books and people we know and love (Mary Shelley, Sleeping Beauty).

High Fantasy

Yes!! High fantasy has made a serious comeback in YA. With epic authors like Robin McKinley tackling the genre, you can be assured high fantasy YA is in full swing.
