Young adult fiction has been having something of a golden moment over the past few years, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon as authors continue to enthral us with emotional stories, unforgettable characters and so many life-affirming quotes we barely have enough post-it notes to keep track of them all. 2015 was a particularly wonderful year for YA, discussing the thought-provoking, heart-breaking, inspiring, comforting and the hilarious sides of young adult life. We had new instalments in our favourite series, exciting debuts and fascinating new stories from some of the most incredible authors out there to keep us busy reading.
Below we’ve pulled together some of our favourite YA books to emerge in 2015, including books from the likes of Rainbow Rowell, Louise O’Neill and Jennifer Niven. Take a look at our list to see if your favourite made it, and let us know which ones we’ve missed in the comments box below.
