Welcome to Day #25 of the April A to Z Challenge, where participants are challenged to create a post every day (except Sundays) corresponding to the appropriate letter of the alphabet. We’re in the home stretch–only ONE MORE DAY to go! If you’d like to learn more, hit the badge on my sidebar.
I’ll be posting about bookish topics each day of the challenge. Here’s today’s post:
I read a lot of different genres, but I haven’t read much YA in a very long time. I picked up Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park late last year and absolutely LOVED it–I then read Fangirl and enjoyed it almost as much. Reading more YA is one of the informal reading goals that I set for myself this year, but I need some help–and here’s where you come in!
I need some suggestions for YA books and/or authors to add to my TBR list. I like realistic YA –not so much with paranormal, vampires, fantasy, or dystopian plots. I’m also not really into the whole dying of a disease thing, either. What I do enjoy is reading about teens and young adults who are trying to cope and make their way in the real world–dealing with friends, family, significant others, etc. Plots that take place primarily in educational settings–high school or college–are a plus.
So–if you’re a YA fan, please give me some suggestions! Who are some great YA authors that I should try–and which of their books should I dig into first? Help me out, blogging buddies–I’m counting on you!
