5. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
I love reading fantasy novels, especially if they surround themselves around the theme of witchcraft! Safi and Iseult may have unique powers but they just want to be free to live their own lives. However, that may be difficult, especially with a war looming on the Witchlands' horizon.

Feyre has escaped the clutches of Amarantha. But join Feyre in her continued adventures as she navigates through the dark corners of the Night Court. And with her newly acquired powers of the High Fae, I feel we will not be disappointed with this new book in the series.
9. The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye
The Crown's Game is no ordinary tournament. The Crown's Game is an ancient duel of magical skills: the victor becomes the Tsar's esteemed advisor, the loser is sentenced to death. This is like Game of Thrones for the younger set.

A gothic retelling of the classic Jane Eyre. After suffering cruel abuses, Jane Steele reverts to crime avenging people whoever have been wronged...until she meets the mysterious Charles Thornfield and her dangerous past threatens to be revealed.
Remembrance by Meg Cabot
This is not necessarily a YA Novel but it is a continuation of YA book series, The Mediator series, that enjoyed when I was younger and I am so glad Meg Cabot decided to write another installment for this series.
Susannah Simon returns with a new job, a new engagement to Dr. Jesse De Silva...an ancient murder, ghosts, and ex-boyfriend. All in the days work of a Mediator.
