these lists of books to read before you die that are full of classics are all well and good but what if you don’t like classics? and what about the ya ones that are just full of popular series? so this is an alternative list of ya books you should read before you die. thanks to everyone who contributed books; i’ve had to miss some off because i’ve got more than 100, so i’ll probably include them on a second list. (also, i’ve not actually read all these books. it’s a group effort)
Feminism! Latino fantasy! Characters in control of their sexuality! Gay characters! Literally all but one main character is a POC! Matriarchs! Friendships! Catholic fantasy! Girls get shit done! Boys who respect girls are sexy! Screaming.
THREE SIDES OF A HEART: Stories About Love Triangles
Here it is! Presented in triplicate for the obvious, oh-so-clever reason.
As excited as I am to be sharing the cover, I’m even more excited for you to read this collection, coming December 19, 2017! Want to know more? Here’s a teaser….
A teen girl who offers kissing lessons. Zombies in the Civil War South. The girl next door, the boy who loves her, and the girl who loves them both. Vampires at a boarding school. Three teens fighting monsters in an abandoned video rental store. Literally the last three people on the planet.
What do all these stories have in common?
The love triangle.
You may think you know the love
triangle, but you’ve never seen love triangles like these.
In Three Sides of a Heart, a collection masterfully compiled and
edited by Natalie C. Parker, your favorite authors tackle the much-debated
trope, and the result is sixteen fresh, entertaining, and yes, even romantic
stories you don’t want to miss.
With stories from: Renée Ahdieh, Rae Carson, Brandy
Colbert, Katie Cotugno, Lamar Giles, Tessa Gratton, Bethany Hagen, Justina Ireland, Alaya Dawn Johnson, E.K. Johnston, Julie Murphy, Garth Nix, Natalie C. Parker, Veronica Roth, Sabaa Tahir, & Brenna Yovanoff.
