Published NaNoWriMo Novels

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) has begun!  This great yearly event is a way to encourage writers (or aspiring writers) to complete a novel in one month’s time. As of writing this post, there are 276 173 novelists signed up to take part in the 2013 event. If you are participating (or thinking about participating), I wanted to provide a little inspiration by showcasing some of the published YA and Children’s titles that were written during NaNoWriMo. It’s quite inspiring to see some of my favourites titles on this list.

by Marissa Meyer

As plague ravages the overcrowded Earth, observed by a ruthless lunar people, Cinder, a gifted mechanic and cyborg, becomes involved with handsome Prince Kai and must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect the world in this futuristic take on the Cinderella story. I love this book! You can read my review here.

Olivia Bean Trivia QueenOlivia Bean, Trivia Queen
