As you can probably tell, we’re huge Kasie West fans and have been for many years. We eagerly anticipate all of her new releases and love almost everything that she writes. However, there are some books we definitely prefer over others. That’s why we ranked Kasie West’s books—to help readers know where to start.
This post will be updated when West releases new books—but for now, here are her current YA contemporary books. We left off Pivot Point and Split Second because they are fantasy/paranormal YA. Though that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read them though. We’re huge fans of her paranormal duology, it’s just hard to compare it to the rest of her books because they are so different.
We have a tie for the number one spot because we just couldn’t decide between two of West’s most dreamy love interests and engaging stories. Let us know your favorite YA books from West in the comments.
