How to Write a Great Young Adult Novel: 6 Tips from the Young Adult Writers Association

Young adult fiction has been around since the mid-1800s, and while many books have a more traditional, more literary bent, there are a lot of stories that are more in the vein of classic science fiction or fantasy.

Here are the seven best young adult novels of all time.


H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, by H. P. Lovecraft, published in 1940 and first published in the collection of The Call of Cthulhu, by Robert E. Howard Lovecraft (1938).

This is one of the earliest Lovecraft stories, and it is the first one in the Cthulhu Mytho series.

Lovecraft is known for his weird fiction, and this one is an example of the kind of fantastical horror stories that would later become part of his works.

It has a fantastic atmosphere, which is a common trope in his work.

It’s a good book to start your collection with.

The book also has a lot to do with the Cthulhu mythos, which are the myths of ancient civilizations.

It also contains a few stories from the H.R. Giger universe, as well as some other lesser-known works.


The Shadow Over Innsmouth, by L. Frank Baum, published between 1939 and 1942, in a collection called Tales of the Swamp, in which characters named “Big Bird” and “Little Bird” go to an island, where they are trapped by the swamp.

There are many other tales in this collection, but the one that comes to mind is called The Dreaming Island.

Baum’s stories are all fantastic and imaginative.

He was a writer of many genre-bending stories, but this is the one he made the most of.

This is also a good introduction to the Cthulhu mythology, and Baum makes sure to tie it into some of his other works.

The Swamp has a number of other great stories from this time period.


The Three-Body Problem, by J.G. Ballard, published during the 1930s, in The Three Body Problem, edited by Arthur Conan Doyle (1937).

This book is the story of a trio of people trapped in a small island for five years by the forces of evil, and a young girl named Alice who goes on an adventure with them.

It was the first book in the series, which featured a series of strange, often bizarre creatures that were part of the supernatural, and Ballard wrote a lot about them.

The characters are often very well written, and you get a sense of the characters’ personalities and the weirdness of the place they’re in.

Ballard was a fantastic writer, and his books have become some of the most well-known and influential stories in fiction.


The Great Flood, by Charles Stross, published by William Morrow and Penguin Books in 1940.

This book tells the story from the point of view of a group of people on a tropical island.

It is one story about the effects of global warming on the island.

The author, Charles Stroll, was a prolific writer, with many books published, and he wrote about a lot more stories than just the Great Flood.

The setting of the book is tropical and the characters are animals and plants, with the exception of a woman named “Ella.”

This is a fantastic book to have as a starting point for any young adult story.


The Red Dragon, by James Patterson, published sometime between 1950 and 1961, in Red Dragon: The Legend of Red Dragon by James H. Patterson, edited and translated by Jules Verne (1954).

The Red Dragons were a fictional tribe of humanoids who were part demon, part human, and part lizard.

In this story, they are being hunted by a human named “Black Elk,” who is being assisted by a woman, and who, of course, is also being hunted.

The authors name is a reference to the Red Dragon’s name, which can be found in the Legend of the Red Dragons.

The novel is also known as The Red King and was one of Patterson’s first novels.


The Moonstone, by Ursula Le Guin, published before The Colour of Magic in 1970.

This story is the second book in The Colour Of Magic, which tells the tale of the world of the moon, which has been inhabited by the evil “Amber.”

The story is a fairly straightforward one, and is set on the surface of an underwater island.

As a result of the curse placed upon the world by Amber, the world has been changed in some way.

A small island has been established on the ocean floor, and the humans on the shore are called the “White People,” who are all living on the moon.

This makes them the “Mongols,” the inhabitants of the Moonstone.

Le Guins stories are typically about being in a fantasy world, but her world is one that is very much in reality.


The Wuthering Heights, by Lewis Carroll, published from
