5 Young Adult Novels for Summer
  • 1 of 6

I donít know about you, but I love a good young adult novel — funny, sweet, silly, or inspiring. Yet with the dizzying number of titles coming out every year, many cheap thrillers or fad romances, itís sometimes hard to know what to read. Here are five of my favorite titles. And if you think that young adult isnít your thing, hold on a second — young adult books can be as good, if not better, than ďregularĒ books, and there is enough variety here for anybody.

Sounds like a great list of books. I've been wanting to read Hunger Games for a really long time, and Hate List sounds terrific too. Other young adult books I've found to be terrific are Divergent by Veronica Roth and Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, both of which are going to be coming out as movies in the next year. Thanks.

Liked Hunger Games - love Corey Doctorow's work. Glad to see juvenile literature being written about.

I read the trilogy. It's well written. I look forward to watching "The Hunger Games" on DVD. I have to admit I found Mockingjay pretty violent. Still, I would let my sons read it if they were still teenagers. My parents let me read anything I wanted thinking if I was old enough to find interest in it, I'm old enough to read it. We even exchanged books during my teen years.
