Blogging A-Z – Young Adult

Blogging A-Z Challenge: April 29: Young Adult books

One more day to go and I’ve done it!!

One of my favourite genres to read these days is Young Adult, but like X-rated books (previous post) it’s difficult to admit it to some. I was sitting outside reading a few weeks ago and one of my neighbours walked by and asked what I was reading.

“Oh, just a Young Adult novel,” I said vaguely, flashing her a quick look at the cover of Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass. (FYI good book! Not as good as Hunger Games, better than the Red Queen)

Why can’t I proudly admit to all that I’m reading books targeted at teens? Because I’m an adult?

Young Adult books are – for the most part – amazing. There are some I have trouble stomaching, and some of the romantic ones are a little too much for me. But a lot of the dystopian and fantasy series are awesome.  A few of my favourites:

  • Hunger Games (what I compare all others too) – Suzanne Collins
  • Divergent (first book is the best) – Veronica Roth
  • The Fault in Our Stars – John Green
  • Eleanor and Park – Rainbow Rowell
  • Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas
  • Gone series – Michael Grant
  • Never Fade – Alexandra Bracken
  • Dorothy Must Die – Danielle Paige
  • If I Stay – Gayle Foreman
