5 Underrated YA Novels

First of all, I’m really sorry for not posting. It wasn’t even that I was busy, just that I simply had nothing to post about. You know sometimes when you have so many post ideas and sometimes you’re just blank?

Anyways, here are 5 underrated books that I just LOVED:

1. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven


When social outcast, Theodore Finch and the beautiful and popular Violet Markey meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, both with the intention of jumping, it is unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make many important discoveries. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.

Now that I think of it, they’re making it into a movie, so it can’t be that underrated, but I still don’t see it much often. But either way, be prepared to cry… a lot.


2. The Young Elites by Marie Lu


Adelina  Amoutero is a survivor of the blood fever, a deadly illness that swept through her nation ten years ago. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to have mysterious and powerful gifts; the Young Elites. And when she meets Enzo, one of the Young Elites, they take her in and train her to survive and fight with her powers, hoping to one day end all injustice against blood fever survivors. But when everything changes, only one thing is certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.


3. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones


Sophie has the great misfortune of being the eldest of three daughters, destined to fail miserably should she ever leave home to seek her fate. But when she unwittingly attracts the ire of the Witch of the Waste, Sophie finds herself under a horrid spell that transforms her into an old lady. Her only chance at breaking it lies in the ever-moving castle in the hills: the Wizard Howl’s castle. To untangle the enchantment, Sophie must handle the heartless Howl, strike a bargain with a fire demon, and meet the Witch of the Waste head-on. Along the way, she discovers that there’s far more to Howl—and herself—than first meets the eye

This was a movie! Both were absolutely amazing. ❤


4. Once Upon a Time series by lots of people


A twist on classic fairy tales.

There is nothing really to say about this but because every book is different. But still, it’s a must read.


5. Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence


From being a privileged royal child, raised by a loving mother, Jorg Ancrath has become the Prince of Thorns, a charming, immoral boy leading a grim band of outlaws in a series of raids and atrocities. The world is in chaos: violence is rife, nightmares everywhere. Jorg has the ability to master the living and the dead, but there is still one thing that puts a chill in him. Returning to his father’s castle Jorg must confront horrors from his childhood and carve himself a future with all hands turned against him.

It’s really dark and violent in the beginning (the main character’s a psychopath) but after that part, you’re hooked. And think about this… Rick Riordan rated this five stars. Read it.


Happy reading!

  1. I own The Young Elites book. I was excited to read it ever since I found out about it (before it was available), but I was slightly disappointed maybe because my expectations was too high. The book was still very good and I really did enjoy it, but I didn’t enjoy it enough to buy the second book. I’ll have to borrow it from my school library to see what happens next.
