Our King and Queen

Okay, so books don't have genders to really be a King or Queen, but these books are our top prom royalty! Both series were thought to be long gone, but with the release of Hunger Games prequel The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, and the announcement of the LONG awaited retelling of Twilight, Midnight Sun, these two books are definitely the YA popularity contest winners this year, and their staying power makes them our ultimate YA royalty.

Prince and Princess

This year's junior royalty don't have the 10+ year fandom history of our winners, but they have made a lasting impression. The Hate U Give has been a New York Times bestseller for 167 weeks, proving it's here to stay and making it an instant YA legend. Earlier this year, the sequel to One of Us Is Lying, One of Us Is Next, was released and officially made this hit book a series! And that series is making waves with YA bloggers everywhere, sure to be the next big thing.

Court Jesters

Where would any royal be without their celebrated court jesters? Be More Chill is an older hit from hilarious writer Ned Vizzini, but was late last year propelled to stardom with its Broadway adaptation. Yep, this book is a Broadway star now. Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging had been a staple for awkward teens everywhere, routinely called one of the funniest YA novels there is. And good news, it's a series and there's 10 of them!

With his recently announced Disney+ adaptation, Percy Jackson and his demigod cohorts are surging in popularity and finding new fans. Cinder is book one of the Lunar Chronicles series, and stars a teen girl who just wants a better life…and will start a revolution to get it.
