My Favorite YA Reads of 2014

Victoria Scott

Every year, I compile a list of my favorite young adult books. And every year, it gets harder to narrow the choices. I meet so many fabulous authors at events, and their books are unique and perfect in their own right. And because I love my author peeps, it makes it even more difficult to pick just ten from the exhaustive amount of stories I enjoy. In no way do I base this list on who I am friends with. Alas, The List is made entirely from my “reader/fangirl” side. So, my fine folks, here were my favorite young adult books that I read in 2014 (these books didn’t necessarily release this year):

Buy Signed Copies – One Week Only

Victoria Scott

My First Starred Review

Kirkus

Recently, my husband asked me a question. “You’ve written eight books, babe. What’s your next career goal?” My knee-jerk response was to sell another book. To always and forever sell another book. As authors, we never know when our last story…will be our last. With so many manuscripts to choose from, and profit margins dwindling in the publishing industry, it’s more competitive than ever. And it doesn’t simply take talent to get picked up anymore. It takes luck.
