Bookshelf Tour, Pt. 22 | YA (continues)

I’m in a mood today.

I just want to stop time for a bit, ignore the world, and get lost in my books because I think this world is spinning out of control. Things are so bleak that I gotta fight to see positivity in all that’s going on.

Well, for me, blogging is one of the positive corners of my life, especially these posts. I’m enjoying sharing this tour of my bookshelves with you all, and I hope that it brings you some enjoyment too.

We’re touring my second bookcase; here it is:

And we are on the second row of the fourth shelf from the bottom that’s dedicated to only YA books. Let’s take a look:

I haven’t yet read many of these.


The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky ★★★★★

I have this marked as one of my favorite books on Goodreads, and I still consider it so. But I read it so long ago that I’ve forgotten much about it except that it’s a YA contemporary epistolary novel and I probably read it all in one day. I had to read my review to refresh my memory of it. It’s one of my early reviews, so it’s not so great.

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire ★★★★★

YA fantasy novella set at a boarding school that helps kids cope with the real world when they return from magical places. I really enjoyed this story, but I’m surprised that I marked it as a favorite on Goodreads. I didn’t remember that. I’d like to reread it and continue with the series.

Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire

The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block

The Singular & Extraordinary Tale of Mirror & Goliath by Ishbelle Bee


The Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho

I attempted to read this once — back when the hype for it was high — but I got bored by the writing and only managed a couple pages before setting it aside. I blame it on my mood at the time, so I plan to return to it. …I now realize that it’s not YA (lol, smh).

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic  by Leigh Bardugo, illus. by Sara Kipin

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo ★★★☆☆

YA fantasy about a girl who must use her powers against a great evil. I read this out of curiosity about the Darkling because so many booktubers kept talking about him. The story was okay. I intended to continue with the second book but kept getting bored whenever I start it.

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

I suck at completing series although I kinda prefer them to standalone novels. I really enjoyed the first two Hunger Games books and even consider the first one a favorite, but I’ve yet to read Mockingjay, lol. I keep putting it off and have been doing so for years, smh. One of these days, I’ll have to buckle down and just catch up on all my unfinished series.

Mockingjay by Suzanne Clarke

Catching Fire by Suzanne Clarke ★★★★☆

Hunger Games by Suzanne Clarke ★★★★★

Zodiac by Romina Russell

The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore

Bent Heavens by Daniel Kraus


The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine ★★★☆☆

YA fantasy inspired by fairytales and that features humans who can turn into dragons. I was surprised that I liked this story. I bought it because I love the endpages and didn’t get to read it until I was far-gone in my “not liking YA anymore” mood, which I’m still in. I’d like to read the other books, but I have a feeling I won’t like them much.

Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor ★★★☆☆

YA fantasy set in Nigeria about an albino girl who learns that she belongs to a set of people able to work magic. I really enjoyed this story and would like to continue with the series.

Riverkeep by Martin Stewart

Jackaby by William Ritter

Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch

Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch ★★★☆☆

YA fantasy about a girl trying to help save her kingdom. I enjoyed this one and actually didn’t mind the love triangle that popped up in it, but that may have been because it was just starting out in this book. I wonder if I’ll think the same when I read the second book, Ice Like Fire.

Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente, illus. by Ana Juan

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

  1. Great post! I always love seeing other peoples shelves, it’s great inspiration haha. Mine are currently in colour order although with nothing else to do in lockdown that might not last for long 😄 I recently finished the language of thorns AND LOVED IT SO MUCH!! I have to admit that the Kerch tale kind of terrifying me – dolls are freaking terrifying. I can’t even watch coralline lol (but the button eyes?!). Here was my review of it 🙂


    1. Thanks! I love looking at shelves that are organized by color. So beautiful.
      Lol I don’t mind doll stories but such horror movies are so terrifying, lol.


  2. This world was ever “in” control ?
    Or was the chaos observed from a different perspective.

    And you do your blogging really well
    So I think that if you’re enjoying it
    How could we not.
