Five Favorite: YA Series

“Five Favorite” is a feature on thewasofshall where I lay out my five favorite “x”. Sometimes they’re relevant to a season or holiday, mostly they’re not. It’s an all-around fun excuse to give my 100% amazingly awesome opinion. To see previous (and future) topics, click here. To participate, scroll all the way down.

There’s just something about series, you know? Something about getting to read more of your favorite character(s) while they inhabit your favorite world. Man, I just love ’em. Here are my five favorite for young adults.


Gemma Doyle by Libba Bray


Jessica Darling by Megan McCafferty

(So… the publisher decided to revamp the series’ cover design right when Perfect Fifths came out – which is all well and good EXCEPT THAT I grew up with the original covers and wanted to complete my set!!!)


The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins


The Luxe by Anna Godbersen


Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
