YA (Young Adult)


PilesOfBooksAJ and Mel’s Recommendations

Our teen years may be WAY behind us, but there’s still something very special about escaping into the world of the younger generation and we often find ourselves searching specifically for YA when the mood strikes us!

These books mostly focus on main characters who are high-school aged, and each of them contain mature themes so they’re not ‘cutesty teen’ novels (and we have noted where books contain more mature content).  But each one is a truly amazing read!
