Five Must Read YA Fantasy

Here are five must read YA fantasy, not to say that there aren't many more that are amazing, but these ones are some of my favourites.

1. To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
To Kill a Kingdom
This is a standalone fantasy; it's a dark retelling of the little mermaid.
Where the little mermaid has to take a heart every year !
I cannot recommend this enough, it is beautifully written and one of the most originals retelling of the little mermaid I have ever read.

2. An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
An Enchantment of Ravens
This novel is also a standalone fantasy that is about a young girl called Isobel a prodigy who paints and a fae who orders a portrait from the young artist, she makes a mistake that could cost her her life, she paints human emotion into his eyes.
She is then whisked away by Rook to the fae lands to await her trial in the autumn lands.

3. Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)
This is the first book in a fantasy trilogy, each book has a different main character. While they are different they are set in the same world and they do intertwine which is really interesting.
This is set in a world where some people get powers, Katsa our main character has the power to kill a man with her bare hands, due to that she is the kings thug. She kills whomever he wants her to. Enter Prince Po.
This world is beautifully made, it is political and extremely well written.

4. The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale

The Goose Girl
This is the first book in a series this is the retelling of The Goose Girl, Ani the crown princess of a kingdom has the feared power to communicate with birds, seen from afar due to her difficulty to communicate  and connect with humans. Sent to marry a prince in a foreign kingdom she gets caught in a mutiny. With no one to turn to for help in a foreign country or to trust she becomes a goose girl responsible for the care of those birds in the kingdom where she will have to use her powers to fulfill her destiny.

it can be read as a standalone !

5. Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

This is the first book in a 6 books series; while this is not my favourite in the series this is what started it all and so it holds a precious place in my heart.

We follow the story of a most notorious assassin Celaena Sardothien, she is recruited by the prince to enter a deadly tournament to become the kings assassin. 

Here it is some of my favourites and some less known/extremely well known stories in the YA fantasy,
