100 Must-Read YA Books Written in Verse One of my favorite formats, and one that’s abundant in the young adult designation in particular, is the verse format. I love novels, as well as non-fiction, that is thoughtfully and skillfully crafted in verse. It’s a skill few writers possess well, since it’s so much more than simply breaking up prose into lines and calling it done. There needs to be clear thought and purpose behind the format, since it reflects the voice and perspective of the character. But damn, when a verse book is done well, it is done well. Want to get started? I’ve also only listed first titles in a series, in order to offer up a wider variety of reads.
