With Spring approaching on March 20th and a desire to make a dent in my TBR list in regards to stand alone novels, it’s time for a new challenge…Spring for Standalones!
Goal: Read as many stand alone novels on my shelf/kindle/library overdrive queue as possible from March 20 – June 20th.
Since most of you are YA readers, in no particular order, below are 35 YA books that I would love to read this Spring. The list includes a nice variety genre wise but plenty of sci-fi and paranormal, as that’s what I gravitate towards the most, as well as a good mix of debut novels, under the radar books by known authors, and a few self published authors. If you’re looking for diverse reads, I’ve got you covered as well. Each link below once you get to the list leads to the Goodreads page for that book.
Of the books listed below, I own 15 and I know that at least 5 other titles are available as ebooks through my library, so that’s at least 20 books that I can definitely get to as soon as I please his Spring. To expand on the 35 books listed below, there are 167 books on my YA Standalones Goodreads List. Note though that this list includes standalones published before 2014, so there may very well be standalone books that I read this upcoming season that are not on that particular GR list but are on my 2014, 2015, and 2016 GR lists. Okay, so, without anymore delay, here are the standalones that I have spent far too much time not making a priority! Feel free to join in on the challenge as well!
