Some of my Favorite Male-Written Novels #MIYA




During the month of April my good friend, Evie at Bookish hosted the event MEN IN YA. How cool is that? I absolutely loved the idea and offered to help. Therefore, today I am going to share with you some of my favorite male-written novels.

 Ten of my favorite YA in no particular order and then as a bonus, I have shared a few of my all-time favorites.

 Evie and I both would love to hear what some of your favorites are.

Please don't judge. (At least too harshly.)


Books That Will Induce Mindfuck:


“Suddenly, I viddied what I had to do, and what I had wanted to do, and that was to do myself in; to snuff it, to blast off for ever out of this wicked, cruel world. One moment of pain perhaps and, then, sleep forever, and ever and ever.”  Anthony Burgess







“Your heart is my piñata.”― Chuck Palahniuk


“I laugh maniacally, then take a deep breath and touch my chest- expecting a heart to be thumping quickly, impatiently, but there's nothing there, not even a beat.”  Bret Easton Ellis


American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess



“My mother began to go crazy. Not in a 'Let's paint the kitchen red!' sort of way. But crazy in a 'gas oven, toothpaste sandwhich, I am God' sort of way.”  Augusten Burroughs

                                                                                                                                                                 “the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”  Jack Kerouac 


“There is no beginning, no middle, no end, no suspense, no moral, no causes, no effects. What we love in our books are the depths of many marvelous moments seen all at one time.” Kurt Vonnegut
