Some of My Favorite Men. In YA

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. So, 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’ve also shared a few of my all-time favorites. 

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

1.  Hostage Three by Nick Lake

2. The Marbury Lens by Andrew Smith
 
3. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
 
 
4. Life is But A Dream by Brian James
 
5. The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chobsky 
 
 
6. Unwind by Neal Shusterman
 
 
7. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
 
8. Rotters by Daniel Kraus

And just because I can’t stop with ten books, I’m going to throw a few more of my all time favorites in. 
 
Please don’t judge. (At least too harshly.)
“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
 “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

Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut

American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis

On The Road by Jack Kerouac

Running With Scissors by Augusten Burroughs

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk

“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 
 

“Your heart is my piñata.”― Chuck Palahniuk

“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
