For today, I’d like to see titles that you read more than 5 years ago, maybe more than 7 years ago, that are still worth attention. In the library world, teen books start being considered obsolete after 5 years unless they are actively circulating, so what books would be past that time but still worth a read? You can go even older than that if you can think of some.
For some of this, that won’t be hard because 5-7 years ago doesn’t feel that long. For perspective, I read Twilight 10 years ago.
For me, one of the oldest YA series I remember reading was the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan. Were they good? I don’t even recall. I just know in high school I loved all things witches and I read them all, and they were super short.
Also towards the end of high school I read the House of Night series by P.C. Cast. I still see these check out at the library.
What are your throw back titles?
