Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone Trilogy is still one of the first titles that come to mind when I'm recommending a young adult series. There is a return to some familiar territory inThe Language of Thorns but Bardugo took things in a new direction with this one; it's a collection of six stories of dangerous magic and dark fairy tale, lavishly illustrated by Sara Kipkin. The perfect read for anyone who loves a rich and twisty retelling of the dark stories we were told as children, it's also a beautiful book to admire as you turn the pages.
Leigh Bardugo not only writes top-notch YA fantasy, she has her favorites as well. See Bardugo's picks below, and look here for more celebrity favorites.
