I actually saw this post originally done by Andie at Books, Coffee & Passion who took the 20 nominated novels in the Romance category and ranked the ones that were read. After posting my rankings for the Romance and Fantasy categories, I decided to do the YA Fantasy category.
YOUNG ADULT FANTASY – Opening Round Nominees
From the 20 novels in the opening round, I read nine of them and still have the other 11 on my TBR. Since I did not read all of them, my ranking will only include the completed novels. My ranking is based on my rating at the time of the review. If two or more novels have the same rating, then I will choose my favorite based on my memory of the reading experience.
**You can click on each cover to access my full reviews of each novel.**
This brings us to my top four novels – Iron Widow, Our Violent Ends, Six Crimson Cranes, and Once Upon a Broken Heart.
Similar to the romance and fantasy categories, I decided to rank and vote for a favorite even though I may get around to reading the remaining novels between now and the end of voting for this round on November 28th. This one was a difficult choice as my top four are amazing in their own ways. Based on rating alone, though, there is a clear winner which was Once Upon a Broken Heart!
This list is based on the ratings I gave when I initially wrote each review. Since I am indecisive, I am sure that some of these novels will change places in the ranking if I thought about each detail more, however, I am trying to not overthink it. I would easily read all nine of these novels again and I cannot wait to eventually try the remaining ten nominees!
Which novel did you vote for (if you did) or did you enjoy the most?

Also, I forget to say I loved The Gilded Ones. Definitely recommend it!
Ok, so your top 4 are all on my physical TBR! I need to read them like yesterday!!! 😀
Super exciting that your number #1 is Once Upon a Broken Heart, I haven’t read Caraval but I loved the OUaBH synopsis and I had to get it. Don’t know if I’ll manage to still read it in December, but I hope I get to it in January.
