The Top 21 YA Blogs of 2015

Recently, I was approached by another blogger, Mary, who was interested in finding YA blogs to share with other YA readers. Mary loves finding blogs that she enjoyes and sticking with them. She's what you call a very loyal follower. She asked me a little bit of information about myself, and for my blog's URL, and told me that she'd be back to me soon if my blog made the list.

This morning, I woke up to a message on Goodreads, stating that my blog had made her list for this calendar year! I'm so excited to share this news with you all, and I'm excited to share the other twenty bloggers who mad the list! I've only been blogging for a few short months, and already, I feel like I'm being accepted into this wonderful community of bookish people. So now... without further ado, I'm going to share the entirety of Mary's post so everyone who follows me can discover some new and amazing YA blogs!

The Top 21 YA Blogs of 2015

1. The Hardcover Lover

Okay... so obviously you guys know this one is me. If you don't... well... I'm Erin. I'm the only blogger here at The Hardcover Lover, and I made my blog a few years after discovering YA in a college class. I'm also a certified English teacher, so I love reading YA to see what books the kids are reading. I've found that the kids respect me a little more if they know that I've read a book that they have read. On The Hardcover Lover, you'll find book reviews, bookish memes, including my own - Soundtrack Saturday. Many of the reviews I post on my blog are YA, but I sometimes post some middle grade reviews and some adult fiction reviews.

2.     Sassy & Dangerous

Sassy & Dangerous all got started in the month of July and has been filled with anything bookish! All about the genre young adult, it ranges from book reviews, giveaways, book tours, and so much more. You will also find my very own book meme called Books, Coffee & Hotties..Oh My! which talks about the title itself; a coffee you can't live without, a book you can't stop reading, and that one hottie you can't stop staring at! So, please feel free to stop by and maybe even leave a comment. I always love making new blogging buddies to talk about books and book boyfriends!

3.     Perusing Bookshelves 

Perusing Bookshelves Is a book blog sharing the love of books and everything bookish. The book blog offers a variety of bookish posts -from book reviews to discussions about our silly bookish insecurities. Perusing Bookshelves is a place to unleash your inner book nerd and flail over books and fictional characters along with Kat, the girl behind all the shenanigans on Perusing Bookshelves. She's an all round book lover and is constantly on the search for more books that piques her fantasy, as if she doesn't already have piles of TBR books clogging her bookshelf at home. 

4.     Word to Dreams

 I am a forty something mother of 4, 2 of whom are serving in the US military and 2 whom are in high school and a veteran myself. I work full time for county government by day and by night I am a reader, blogger, reviewer, Goodreads co-mod, coordinator of a Read 4 Review program and Facebook addict. My favorite category of books is Young Adult. Before Twilight came on to the scene, I discovered the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld and became hooked on YA dystopian, science fiction and paranormal. I'm not a big reader of contemporary romance, but I do promote these authors too, because it's only fair. I read published and self-published novels alike and do not prefer one over the other.

5. Diary of a Book Lover

Hi there! I'm Alma, a book blogger who loves to read YA, mostly fantasy and contemporary. I own a blog called "Diary of a Booklover" where I talk do review, tags, etc. I'm honored to be included in the Top 21 YA blog. Some random things about me: I love music as much as reading and I'm obsessed with quotes. Some of my favorite books are Clockwork Princess, Cress and Crown of Midnight. Thanks for reading!

 6. Heartland Reading 

My blog is about reading and enjoying books in general. I use to read Historical Romance books but I have branched out to just Romance, YA and NA. I'm sure as my pallet grows I'll be reading more genres. I try to do a weekly meme to show what books I have received or bought for the week.

7. Twenty three Owls

Camillia is a book and lifestyle blogger. She blogs on Twenty Three Owls and she posts book reviews, exclusive interviews and advanced excerpts from books. When she has the time, Camillia also blogs about her life and about daily struggles. From hair routines to how to master the art of being lazy, Camillia has you covered. She keeps it real on her blog and you can expect to find funny, sad and relatable posts there.

8. The Book Ponderer

This is the place where YA and occasionally adult books are reviewed. Ranging from science fiction, paranormal, fantasy and other genres of books. No books are left unturned as I believe in giving every book their deserved chance.

9. Karinys Teen Boox Frenzy

I blog about YA books, mostly fantasy and romance. I rarely reads sci-fi, chick lit and contemporaries but I still love then nonetheless. I like to focus more on YA fantasy with romance; I rarely read books without romance. I review books that authors send me for free in exchange for HONEST reviews and I’m a netgallery member. I do my best to review all the books I read good or bad because I want to share my honest feelings with other readers like me. I love reviewing books directly from new or debut authors because I also want to be an author and so I want to help them out and get as maximum exposure for their talent as I can. Here’s a link and I hope you like it!

10.     Boats Against the Currents

I’m Laura: a bookworm and aspiring writer from the North West of England. I review a wide range of books on my blog Boats Against The Current, including sci-fi, fantasy, historical fiction, and of course, YA fiction, as well as posting discussion posts, list posts and writing tips. '

11.     Forever Obsession

Hello everyone, my name is Rivalie and I blog over at Forever Obsession. The blog was born in 2012 after I stumbled across my first book blog and fell in love. Since then, I've been on a crazy adventure reading as many books as I can and sharing my thoughts on them. I post a variety of things from book reviews to book tags and weekly bookish memes. Reading has been one of my passions since I was little and being able to talk about my feelings with other people on the Internet has been such an amazing experience. My blog is a place for everyone to come, talk about their bookish thoughts, and spend time with other book lovers. 

12.   My Fantabulous Bookshelf

I'm a writer living in a magical world where mythological beings and magic exists. I have an extraordinary imagination, which has taken me to places no ordinary mortal has been. I love to read and blog about articles targeted at the YA market. 

15. Mostly YA Book Obsessed 

I’m a 28 year old mother of two girls (7 and 4 years old) who loves books, fashion and good music.  I started my book blog in December 2011 after months of silently stalking other book blogs.  I have an Associate’s Degree in Fashion Design and worked in the Product Development field for a women’s apparel catalog for over 5 years.  I love to find new ways of combining my love of books and fashion and even started my own fashion blog last year.

I love to read pretty much anything, although I struggle with Fantasy, Sci-Fi and Dystopias. My favorite genre is contemporary and although I mostly read YA, I also enjoy Adult Romances and New Adult books.

16. Mallory Books 

My name is Mallory, I started blogging (rather badly) at the beginning of summer. I read mostly Young Adult novels, so that's what I usually review. I also do bookish tags and other things on my blog. With the help of a few friends, my blog has progressed into something I love and am very proud of. I hope everyone else feels the same way!

17. The YA Book Worm 

My name is Caitlin and I'm a teenage high school student, bookish blogger, YouTuber and dedicated bookworm. 
Books to me have become my second life- a special place  I can go to whenever and wherever I want. They  give me the chance to become someone entirely different where I can deal with someone else's problems. 

18. Anna Reads 

Anna Reads - I’m a grownup, married lady who still firmly believes that high schools + boys make for the best books. Don’t you agree?
No? Well, then this ain’t the place for you.

Yes? Nice! You’re either an actual young adult or are just like me: a young-at-heart adult who has a soft spot for coming-of-age fiction and chick lit. I’m always on the lookout for something good to read, and maybe you are too, so I thought I’d share what I’m reading and pick up some suggestions from you along the way. A to-read list can never be long enough, right?

19. YA Book Mark 

Hi! I'm Audris! I'm a 21 year old college student currently working to be a psychologist, however, in the meantime I read and review books! As you could probably guess, I read everything categorized as Young Adult, and sometimes I even delve into the adult world.

20. Book for YA 

Blogger - Erleen Alvarez is an IT graduate who immerse herself in the world of fiction to hang out with fictional character, flirt with her book boyfriends and save the world one book at a time.

21. Always YA at Heart 

Hi, I'm Ellen and I am a not so young adult who loves young adult books. I am a nurse, and I love to read books and share about them with others.  I love to read and review Young Adult, New Adult, and even some Grown-Up (Adult) books.  I also occasionally review Middle Grade novels also.  I believe you can always be young at heart, no matter what your age.

Again, I'd like to thank Mary for creating this list of wonderful YA bloggers. Every single one of them is worth a follow, so you should totally do that. Also, feel free to share this post with everyone you know! Tweet about it. Share it on Facebook. Pin it. Make a blog post about it!
