Gwen & Kate's Library

Two sisters' reviews of Young Adult and Middle Grade books, inspired by their lovely library.

Gwen & Kate’s Favorites

The hardest question you could ask either of us is what our favorite book is. Our favorite book is always the one we have most recently read. Here is a list of books, series, and authors that we adore, will read again and again and never stop loving. We will continue to add to this list as we read new great books. Click on the book images for a Goodreads description and more information, and click on the titles for our own review. For our own individual lists from the very beginnings of this blog, visit Gwen’s Favorites and Kate’s Favorites. For our list of best graphic novels, see Gwen & Kate’s Assemblage of Favorite Graphic Novels. In addition, we have a huge flowchart of some of our book recommendations organized in a different format, check out our Gwen & Kate’s Ginormous YA Fiction Recommendations Flowchart post.
