message 1: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for starting this new list, Hallie!

I'm still waiting to hear from GR whether it's possible at all to retrieve the log of books that was deleted from the original.


message 2: by Danielle (new)

Danielle Thank you Hallie!


message 3: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart If it helps anyone who is rebuilding, you can see the top 100 from the original list on Google's cache.

https://webcache.googleusercontent.co...


message 4: by Danielle (new)

Danielle The Priory of the Orange Tree is YA?


message 5: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart I believe Priory is adult fiction. It was published by Bloomsbury, not Bloomsbury YA.

Also, Kingdom of Ash is 2018. I know how much we all love Sarah J. Maas (wink, wink), but that one has got to go for wrong publication date.


message 6: by Michael (new)

Michael Korleone Updated description and added links for other YA lists.


message 7: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks, Michael! It's looking good.


message 8: by Dahlia (last edited Oct 15, 2018 11:19AM) (new)

Dahlia The Nevernight Chronicle books by Jay Kristoff are not YA. Neither is Red, White, & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston.


message 9: by lethe (new)

lethe I added the latter half of the cached list (51 total) and ended up deleting all but 7 votes again, because the rest had all been voted on by others.

So I totally trust the first 100 of the cached list are/will be added by others.

If it will be necessary later on to go through the vandal's edits, I'll help out with that :)


message 10: by Jessica (new)

Jessica A Question of Holmes is on the list at least three times (the one on page 4 has the most votes). I may have added one of those by accident, but can't seem to delete it. Sorry!


message 11: by Rainbowheart (last edited Oct 15, 2018 11:36AM) (new)

Rainbowheart I just ran a duplicate check, so that should have combined everything.

The list is looking good so far. We have about half the books we had originally. Not bad for a few hours' work.

At some point, we'll have to go through and remove non-YA or non-2019 titles. I do see a few creeping onto the list.

Non-2019 titles :)

It is incredible how fast this list is being restored, thanks to the combined efforts of many. \o/\o/\o/


message 13: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Whoops, I meant 2019!

It's great to see the community coming together like this.


message 14: by Michael (new)

Michael Korleone Well, the lists here belong to the community (not even to list creator) so I guess it's apt for community to come together like this.

We shall not be moved.

Unfortunately, once a list is deleted, the logs are no longer accessible. Sorry about that!

Thanks to everyone working to restore this list!


message 20: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for letting us know, Emily.

I figured as much, but it's not too bad. We're almost back to where we were before, even without the log.


message 21: by Danielle (last edited Oct 16, 2018 05:56AM) (new)

Danielle Removed Darkdawn not YA
The Priory of the Orange Tree not YA


message 22: by Hallie (new)

Hallie Thanks for all the hardwork everyone!


~☆~Autumn♥♥☔ Wells I would vote for more books but I don't know enough yet about them to make any decisions.


message 24: by Daiane (new)

message 26: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Should The Twisted Tree be on this list? Goodreads shows it releasing September 2018. How about That Oxford Girl? It doesn't seem to be a novel, but rather a non-fiction guide.

Removed The Priory of the Orange Tree and The Bride Test, which are adult fiction. Deleted Last Chance Summer, Fall Like Thieves, Reconnected, and the untitled Mimi Yu, which all got pushed to 2020.

Also removed Under the Broken Sky, The Next Great Paulie Fink, Scorch Dragons, and She's the Liar, which are all middle grade. Don't forget to add MG books to the Middle Grade Novels of 2019 list! That list can always use more voters. The MG lists don't seem to get as much attention as the YA ones.


message 27: by Lea (new)

Lea Vickery Can you add Good Night by L.R.W. Lee? It comes out next year. On the 14th of January


message 28: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Lea, is your book YA or NA?

Books specifically published and marketed as New Adult should not be on this list.


message 29: by Janine (last edited Nov 26, 2018 04:13PM) (new)

Janine Reverie by Ryan La Sala (Ranked 632) is now an early 2020 release.


message 30: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up, Janine. I moved Reverie over to the 2020 list.


message 31: by Daiane (new)

Daiane Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston are not YA.

message 32: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks, Daiane. I removed Red, White and Royal Blue.


Tween 2 Teen Book Reviews The Shadow Kingdom and Fortune's Queen by C.J. Inkson came out in 2018. They're 191 and 192 on the list.


Tween 2 Teen Book Reviews Ungifted and The Thorn and the Sinking Stone both came out before 2019.

message 37: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Gates and Ungifted by C.J. Inkson. Neither of them were 2019 releases.


message 38: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed The Wizard's Daughter, The Twisted Tree, The Thorn and the Sinking Stone, and Dangerous Girls aka I'll Never Tell. They are all pre-2019 releases. Also removed Blastaway, All of Me, and The Keeper of Lost Cities #8. These are middle grade, per authors/publishers.


message 39: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Malice and The Friend System, which both got pushed to 2020. Also removed Amelia Westlake, which is 2018.


message 40: by Jessica (new)

message 43: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed An Ember in the Ashes #4 and The Seven Endless Forests, which were both pushed to 2020.


message 44: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed 29 Dates, which got an earlier 2018 release. Also removed The Stars Around Us and Rise as One, which got pushed to 2020.

Also deleted several adult entries. Dear George, Dear Mary is adult historical fiction. Soul in Darkness is adult according to author. Crescent City #1 and #2, adult according to author and publisher: https://ew.com/books/2018/05/16/sarah...

Rainbowheart Yikes, looks like someone went crazy with non-2019 additions. I removed all of the ones Betsy mentioned, along with Siege and Storm, Zero G, and Dawn Princess, which were also not published this year, and The Tyrant's Tomb, which is MG. Let me know if I missed anything!


message 47: by Danielle (new)
