My Favorite YA novel. Now that’s a hard one. I love reading YA novels. Now, not as much as I did when I was younger, but I still love reading them. Especially the YA Fantasy ones. I love being swept away to a different place where anything is possible. It’s the world that is created that I love the most about YA novels. Most times the world that is created, is different, magical and still believable to the point I can imagine that world being true. For example the world that is created in the Hunger Games. That world is awful and a lot needs to happen before we come to a world like that, but I can imagine it to be real. That world is cruel.. Well most time these days I think this world is cruel too.
But now to my favorite YA novel. I love a lot of them. Honestly I think most of my favorite books are YA novels. But my absolute favorite YA novel is Harry Potter. Always has and always will! I’ve talked about my love for Harry Potter many times out here. It’s because that series is very important to me, and really made me the avid reader I am today. I think I would have loved reading without the Harry Potter series to, but that series made me love the written word that much more.
Since there are seven books in the Harry Potter I probably should give you the name of my most favorite one. I don’t have one really. I loved all the books. But if I had to choose I would say ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone’. That is the book with which it all began and I remember being completely fascinated with that book from the very beginning. And who can forget that sentence:
He couldn’t know that at this very moment, people meeting in secret all over the country were holding up
their glasses and saying in hushed voices: ‘To Harry Potter - the boy who lived!’
Next to the Harry Potter series I also loved the Twilight series. Totally different but still a series I read many times. Later on I also loved the Mortal Instrument series by Cassandra Clare. There really are some great YA novels out there.
What is your favorite YA novel? Did that book also changed the way you read?
