The young adult category is one of my favorites to read. There are so many different genres in YA to choose from: fantasy, contemporary, romance, dystopian and even horror. Some of these books have developed into classics like The Hunger Games, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Fault in Our Stars. (All favorites of mine!)
So, to help satisfy your addiction for young adult and young contemporary reads, I’ve put together yet another list of fabulous books you should read in our monthly YA Wrap-Up!
February’s line-up is all about the new contemporaries on the scene. I can personally guarantee you that these novels will make you swoon and cry and reduce you to a hot mess — but shouldn’t all good books do that?!
