The epic nomination list includes novels and series from lots of authors we’ve covered, including Sarah Dessen, John Green, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Richelle Mead, Gabrielle Zevin, J.K. Rowling, P.C. and Kristin Cast, Suzanne Collins, Cassandra Clare, Julie Kagawa, Scott Westerfeld, and more.
While we don’t dispute the inclusion of any of these on the list, it’s amazing to think of Anne of Green Gables, published in 1908, alongside today’s vampire novels. But then again, maybe Anne herself wouldn’t find it so anachronistic:
“Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive—it’s such an interesting world. It wouldn’t be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There’d be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
We’ll be heading over to cast our votes, but tell us—what YA makes the top of your list?
