Help me find more young adult novels that I'll enjoy. Snowflakey details inside.
I've seen similar questions on the green, but none that really hook me up with what I'm looking for. I've got a stressful semester ahead, and love to chill before bed by reading young adult fiction. I prefer substance to fluff, like long books, and enjoy historical fiction, dystopias, and alternate worlds, among other things. I prefer a literary prose style or at least a very literate one, and like characters with some depth. I love Robin McKinley's novels and reread them fairly often. But I really need some new things to read. I'm not big on vampires (even though I loved McKinley's Sunshine
). I also read Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy and loved it. I'm thinking of reading Elizabeth Wein's Code Name Verity
, as it's been recommended. Past and current fiction would both be fine.
If you know some adult fiction that fits the bill, feel free to recommend it, too. Thanks!
