The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman
It is a YA fantasy with a touch of steampunk. It’s about Irene who’s a professional spy for the mysterious library which harvests fiction from different realities. It’s the first book of three in the series. It was published in 2015, and I saw it in a Dutch bookshop while in Berlin! It has a 3.75 rating on Goodreads (based on 9067 ratings). 

Under Rose-tainted Skies by Louise Gornall
A YA contemporary about mental illness. It has like 4.27 in rating on Goodreads (based on 464 ratings) and it seems like a really nice read that doesn’t have the typical “boy meets girl” kind of theme. The book was published in July this year.

Faceless by Alyssa Sheinmel
It’s a YA contemporary about a girl who’s at the wrong place at the wrong time and practically loses her face, it’s destroyed, and when it’s reconstructed she can’t recognize herself anymore. It has 4.2 rating on Goodreads (based on 2041 ratings)! The book was published in 2015.

Holding up the Universe by Jennifer Niven
A YA contemporary about a girl and a boy with their own “problems” trying to deal with High School their own way. I read All The Bright Places by Jennifer last summer and I absolutely loved it, so I have no doubt this will be anything but good. It has a 4.01 rating on Goodreads (based on 5223 ratings). The book was published in October this year. 

Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
It’s another YA contemporary set during christmas about a girl who’s left a notebook full of challenges on her favorite bookstore shelf, and then there is the boy who finds the dares. It has a 3.83 rating (based on 59025 ratings) on Goodreads and I can’t wait to read it this christmas. It was published in 2010, and is the first of two books about Lily and Dash. 

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
The third book in the YA fantasy trilogy by Bardugo and a book I bought mainly because I want to finish the series in 2016 (good luck to me on that). It was published in 2014, and has a 4.18 rating (based on 49270 ratings)! 

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
It is a YA fantasy/horror book about a monster and a boy, and it seems pretty creepy. Definetely a book I want to crawl up in bed with during the dark winter nights! It has a 4.22 rating on Goodreads (based on 92150 ratings), and it was published in 2011. 

The Missing by Jane Casey
This was my monthly mystery-book-box book, and I’m not really sure if it’s my kind of book since it goes under “thriller” and “mystery”, but it seems interesting. It was published in 2009, and it has a 3.79 rating on Goodreads (based on 1216 ratings).
