Top Ten YA Books of 2015


…according to me anyway!

These lists are my way of making myself really reflect on what I’ve read this year in the world of children’s and YA literature. It’s incredibly hard to narrow down my lists to just ten, but I’ve set myself this goal – so this is it – my absolute ‘best of the best’ list of YA books which I have read in 2015 – not necessarily published in 2015. What would you add?Top Ten YA books for 2015
