Underrated YA Fantasy Books Everyone Needs To Read (Recommendation Nation)

This all began on tumblr. I was looking for some posts about a specific book series, only to realize that no one else seems to be talking about it. So, I decided that if that fandom doesn’t exist, I will create it myself.

Thats when this slideshow was born. I posted it to tumblr, and just prayed that people would see how great these books are and join the fandom with me.

I’ve included the slideshow down below, but I’ll go into more detail after on why these books were chosen, as well as mention a few other books that deserve more hype.

Read more for even more book recommendations, plus a transcript of the slideshow!

Top 10 Victorious Songs as Books (Recommendation Nation)

Since Victorious has hit Netflix, everyone has been binging it. Myself included. And what have I learned from it? Well, it was definitely a little more problematic than I remembered, but damn, that soundtrack is full of bops.

And because of that, I’ve had the music stuck in my head in a loop for the past couple of weeks. So, I thought, why not capitalize on it and share my 10 favorite Victorious songs, and recommend a book to go with each them!!

I will admit, some of these were a lot easier than others, but, if you’re looking for something to read once you’ve finished your Victorious marathon, I’ve got a few recommendations for you. Also, be sure to read to the end because I’ve linked to a spotify playlist of all of these songs for you to listen to!!
