YA for Adults

Young Adult fiction isn’t for teens anymore. With the growing popularity and frequency of harrowing, real and important YA novels being published, this genre has never been more flexible. Books like Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys and Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi are evidence of this fact. BuzzFeed (an addicting guilty please, sorry about it) just featured an article written by Epic Reads about this phenomenon. Click here to go to the article.

Here are some of the books from the article!

I’ve read a few of these, like The Fault in Our StarsShip Breaker and The Diviners. You probably already know I loved TFIOS, but I also really liked Ship Breaker and The Diviners is definitely one of the best books I’ve read all year. You should check all of these out!

Side note, Epic Reads is a pretty cool group, if you’re into the YA genre at all, you should check out their website (they also have a dope Instagram).

    Jellicoe Road! Please tell me you’ve read Jellicoe Road? Marchetta’s writing is positively lyrical, and you can’t help but fall in love with the book. 🙂
