Booklist Top 10 SF/Fantasy YA

Booklist has released a list of their picks for the Top Ten Science-Fiction/Fantasy for Youth  this year.

In no particular order, they are:

1. Incarceron - Catherine Fisher. I have heard great things about this one, and it's definitely on my To Be Read shelf.

2. Cosmic - Frank Cottrell Boyce.

3. Fever Crumb - Philip Reeve. Yeah, no interest in picking this one up, sorry to say. I enjoyed the first three Hungry City Chronicles books, but after that... I don't think I could be persuaded to read any more of them. Too dystopian! Even for me.

Fire - Kristin Cashore.  Another book that's been on my TBR list for a while.

5. Enchanted Glass - Diana Wynne Jones. I love her books! I should totally read this.

Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins. I just finished reading it.  I'm sure I'll be posting a review, shortly.

The Night Fairy - Laura Amy Schlitz.  I really enjoyed A Drowned Maiden's Hair.  I should give this one a try.

The Ask and the Answer - Patrick Ness.

9. Finnikin of the Rock - Melina Marchetta.

A Conspiracy of Kings - Megan Whalen Turner. I loved The Thief. I really should take a look at this one.

These are two of my favorite genres, so I was surprised that I've read so few of these. All right then, I guess it's time to get crackin'!


  1. I saw this list as well, and put a bunch of them on hold at my local library. Fever Crumb was actually really good, but then again, I'm into dystopia. It will be interesting to hear what you think of Catching Fire. I liked Hunger Games more, but I can't wait for Mockingjay to tie it all together.

  2. Ah, Reeve lost me when Hester turned evil again in book 3. It's like she never got over having an ugly face. What a pity. Fellow readers assure me that there's a great turn-around for the finale, but I just lost heart. Couldn't keep going.

    Yes, thoughts on Catching Fire... soon. Soon!
