YA Fiction Books 2013


Best top rated 2013 teen fiction bookYA fiction books are becoming more popular as not only teens are reading them, but adults as well. Movies such as the Hunger Games, Harry Potter and Twilight among others have put YA fiction into the mainstream.

For 2013, one of the best YA fiction books available is The Conquest of Night by Justin James (I may be biased).

Other books for 2013 include:

The House of Hades (Rick Riordan) which is the newest book in the Heroes of Olympus series. The previous books in the series were fun and tied in both Greek and Roman threads to a fanciful world. I’m looking forward to reading that one for myself.
Fyre (Angie Sage) is the continuation of another series I used to enjoy as a kid. Septimus Heap combined adventure and magic in an entertaining way.

I may be persuaded to pick up a copy of Fyre as well.

Beyonders: Chasing the Prophecy (Brandon Mull) is one of the books I’m anticipating most for 2013. I enjoyed his writing and wonder he brought with Fablehaven. The Beyonders series is simply a continuation of Brandon Mull’s brilliance.

On a whole, I’m looking forward to the 2013 releases these authors have prepared for us.I’ll post a review of some of my favourite stories before I hide them away in my library.

This year reading novels will be even more exciting with the release of new books including the second book in the Chronicles of Night trilogy! People have made lists of books and divided them into different genres to help find the best books to read. When searching for fiction books, one can not just rely on the covers but on recommendations by friends and online reviews. I have seen some romance book authors resort to giveaways to promote their book while others rely on word of mouth. A score or rating is voted on by readers and also by those who have an opionion on the book derived through conversation with others who have read it.

For the reader, there is really only one way to know if an individual likes a particular book and that is to read it either by buying the book, checking it out from the library, downloading onto an ereader or Kindle, or finding it used. Enjoy your favorite beverage and transport yourself into a beautiful setting where the contents of your book debuts.

Enjoy your good reads for 2013!

Christmas 2012 is near and one of the best gifts for teenage readers is a great book.  As the weather turns cold and we spend more time indoors over the holiday season, a good book that will keep a teen reader engaged will be much appreciated this Christmas.

For ages 9-18, there are great fantasy fiction books available by authors like Brandon Mull, Rick Riordan and Justin James.  If you have already read the Fablehaven books by Brandon Mull who is a New York Times’ bestseller, and if the Rick Riordan books such as the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series including The Lost Hero, The Son of Neptune and the Mark of Athena adorn your bookshelf, then it may be time to pickup a copy of the new book The Conquest of Night by teen author Justin James on Amazon.

Rick Riordan has also won many awards including the Anthony Award for Best Paperback Original for his books. Other popular authors for teens include Suzanne Collins, J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter) and Gordon Korman.

Younger kids may like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series while older teens may appreciate the Hunger Games trilogy.  All ages will enjoy The Conquest of Night by Justin James!

Popular Teen Fantasy Fiction Books Online

The Lost HeroSome popular teen fantasy fiction books, other than The Conquest of Night by Justin James 🙂 are:
Fablehaven by Brandon Mull, The Immortals by Tamora Pierce and even The Dragon Keeper by Robin Hobb.

What makes books like Fabelhaven classic reading for teens are the mystical creatures, hidden refuges and true magic. Definitely enchanting and absolutely exciting, but not really safe at all. Although Harry Potter mania is still around, books like Fablehaven and The Conquest of Night hold your attention until the very end.

Rick Riordan’s The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus Book One) has a protagonist Jason finding himself at a boarding school for bad kids, but he is not sure how he got there. Piper, his girlfriend, knows more than it seems. The series also includes The Son of Neptune, The Mark of Athena and others. Where The Conquest of Night will be a trilogy, other book authors may have 5,6,7 or more books in a series. Percy Jackson and the Olympians will have 5 books in the series.
