Over at Huffpost is an article on “This Spring’s Hottest Teen Books.” There are a number of YA writers who submit to FtQ and, I suspect, a number who also read YA novels—I’m one of them. I enjoyed The Hunger Games and then the Divergent series.
These new books are not all dystopian fiction—the range is wide, from dragons to humor, from sports to dystopian worlds. To quote from the article:
A devastating tale of greed and secrets, a weirdly compelling novel about the end of the world (and voracious giant praying mantises) and a novel about a brutal game called Panic that teens play for a chance to escape their dead-end town. They are all among the most talked-about teen novels being released this spring (and they’re all really well-written, to boot—most of these books have received the coveted Kirkus star).
I, for one, will be checking out the reviews that are linked from the slide show.
