~ Goodreads: 100 of the Most Popular YA Books of the Past Five Years ~

I love these Goodreads lists as they give me some ideas of novels that I still need to read in genres that I love. As I enjoy YA novel, I was excited when Goodreads posted this list!

From Goodreads:

While it’s hard to truly quantify what catches on in the realm of pop culture, it’s often fun to try. Looking forward is basically impossible—if book publishers knew how to do that, they’d be gazillionaires. But looking back in time? That’s generally fascinating.

We’ve collected below the 100 most popular YA books on Goodreads over the past five years, as determined by overall shelvings—books that Goodreads members have already read or Want to Read. We’ve also selected for enthusiasm: We’ve culled anything that scored under a 3.5 in average star ratings. Finally, we’ve collapsed popular series into a single representative book. If multiple titles from a series made the list, we included only the first book from the time period in question.

You’ll find several familiar names on the list and an eclectic mix of genres, themes, and styles—from existential romance to classic sci-fi, from labyrinthine mystery to insightful contemporary fiction. Also: enchanted cranes and snow leoponaires.

Scroll over the book covers below for more details about each title. If you see any interesting books conspicuously absent from your own shelves, don’t forget about your Want to Read list.

Of the 100 novels on this list, I have read 29 of them and still have the other 71 to go. As I read this genre a lot, I was surprised that I did not read even a third of the novels on the list. Some of them, at least, is on my TBR shortlist for the end of the year and the rest will hopefully be read next year. I am not sure if I will be able to complete the full list, but I want to attempt to read as many as I can by the end of the year or at least sometime next year.

How about you? Have you read any of these or have them on your TBR?
