  1. What is UKYA? Is that YA novels written by UK authors? I’d recommend Chantress by Amy Butler Greenfield 🙂

    Let’s see… I’ve read The Kiss of Deception, The Lightning Thief, Legend, and The Beginning! Though I’ve read books of every genre mentioned, I’ll definitely take these recommendations to heart 😀
