Looking for uncommon recs

ag. 24, 2020, 5:09am

I'm looking for some YA fiction of novel length.
I've read a lot of the common books, so I'm wondering if anyone has any favourite reads?
I am a big fan of books that have beautiful wording/writing style (if that makes sense).
Ill read any genre
Thank you!!

I'm a fan of Sonya Hartnett, who has a beautiful lyric writing style. Her books cross genres (contemporary, historical, magical realism).

Totally agree on Sonya Hartnett -- Thursday's Child has a great opening and continues beautifully as well. There are other Australian writers who are worth checking out too: Melina Marchetta, and practically everything by Jaclyn Moriarty who writes some different genres but always with a similar style.

If you are willing to read an old-fashioned school story, End of Term (English, by Antonia Forest) is a masterpiece.

If you were to catalog some of the books that you've read and enjoyed, you might help others better recommend what fits your preferred aesthetic,
