3 YA books TBR in 2018
This is a post dedicated to the top 3 YA books that were talked about all over the bookish community that I didn’t get chance to read in 2017. They are below with front covers and synopsis’s’ so you can see if you want to read them too… I’m sure you will!
Turtles all the way down – John Green
The story centers around 16-year-old Aza Holmes, a high school student living with multiple anxiety disorders, and her search for a fugitive billionaire. The only other details of the plot known to the public before release were that it contains, either literally or figuratively, tuatara, Star Warsfanfiction, an unexpected reunion, friendship and values of life. -Wikipedia.
La Belle Savage – Phillip Pullman
Set ten years before the His Dark Materials trilogy, the story follows 11-year-old Malcolm Polstead, his dæmon Asta, a village girl named Alice and her dæmon Ben who become the protectors of the infant Lyra Belacqua and her dæmon, Pantalaimon, in their canoe, La Belle Sauvage, after a flood. The novel introduces the alethiometer specialist Hannah Relf and a new villain, Gerard Bonneville. Returning characters include Lyra’s father Lord Asriel and mother Mrs Coulter, and the Gyptian elder Farder Coram. -Wikipedia
Stalking Jack the Ripper – Kerri Maniscalco
(Actually this is the first book in the series, released 2016 but I want to read this before starting her 2017 “Hunting prince Dracula”)
The book follows Audrey Rose Wadsworth, in 1888 London. Audrey along with Thomas Cresswell twist their way through the London back world in order to discover who is harvesting and killing woman. And the shocking discovery of who is JacktheRipper. – Wikia/Fandom
Have you read any of these? Are they on your TBR? Would you recommend them?

Stalking Jack the Ripper is one of my favs!

I keep toying with the idea of buying Turtles All The Way Down, but I know it will probably end badly… I always seem to like the IDEA of John Green’s books more than I actually end up liking the things themselves.
I’m sure I’ll give in at some point though 😉
One day I swear I’ll finish His Dark Materials so I can read Book of Dust! I’ve heard nothing but good things about it!
I really want to read Turtles All The Way Down! It’ll definitely be a book I read this year! Or at least I hope it will be haha
