Our top picks of YA favorites include the Caraval series by Stephanie Gaber, which is set in a world that is reminiscent of a magical and mysterious carnival, where games and illusions blur the lines between what is real and what is not. The first book in the series, Caraval, follows the story of Scarlett Dragna, who has always dreamt of attending Caraval, a legendary annual event hosted by the enigmatic Master Legend. When she finally receives an invitation to attend, Scarlett and her sister Tella set off to the island where Caraval takes place. However, once they arrive, Tella is kidnapped as part of the game, and Scarlett is forced to navigate a complex web of clues and riddles to find and rescue her sister. The second book Legendary and the third and final book Finale are available to buy all together in our Caraval series collection

Another fantastic YA favorite is Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone series. Set in a world known as the Grishaverse, which is based on Russian folklore and mythology, the series consists of three main novels: Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, and Ruin and Rising, which are available to buy in our Shadow and Bone trilogy collection. There are also two companion novels: Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom, which take place in the same universe but follow a different set of characters. The series follows the story of Alina Starkov, a young orphan girl who discovers she has the power to summon light and is thus a Grisha, a magical elite group of people with unique abilities. Her abilities are rare and powerful, making her a target for both the Darkling, the leader of the Grisha, and the kingdom's enemies, who want to use her powers for their own gain. Throughout the series, Alina struggles to master her powers and navigate the dangerous political landscape of the Grisha world while also dealing with her complicated relationship with the Darkling, to who she finds herself drawn despite his dark nature. Along the way, she makes alliances and enemies and must make difficult choices that will determine the fate of the Grisha and the world they inhabit.
