  1. Hmmm this is hard! Does Daughter of Smoke and Bone count- the writing is lovely in that. I’m not sure if that’s the best answer- I’m sure I can come up with something better! (This is the kind of thing that I’ll get an answer too in the middle of the night and just think “ah that’s what I should have said”)

  2. Sadly, nothing comes to mind, but I’d like to read something like that, too. I see someone recommended All the Bright Places, which I’ve just brought home from the library, so I’m going to have a close look at that one.

  3. I seem to have been reading quite a lot of atmospheric books lately, so there’s a few books that come to mind:

    Stardust by Neil Gaiman is the first, though I wouldn’t really consider it to be YA… & A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston and Lorali by Laura Dockrill both had a really lovely, dream-like quality to them as well. 🙂

  4. I would totally recommend Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I haven’t read this one but I’ve heard so many great things about the magical realism and writing in The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows by Ava Lavender. And this is not YA but The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is like the epitome of dreamy and lyrical!

  5. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Adieh, Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge, and An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir bring to my mind lyrical style writing. These are YA fantasy though and seeing the comments above, it looks like you’re leaning toward YA Contemporary.
