Best YA Books of the Year
My new catch up strategey: Read YA. My friends read tons of YA (it’s an exploding category, and many of those sales are in the over-18 set) and I’m never sorry when I take one of their recommendations. But for some reason, I’ve resisted adding too much of it to my list this year. Somehow it felt like a cheat, like I wouldn’t really be reading 50 books if too many of them were meant for teens.
But some of my all-time favorite books fall into that category (The Harry Potter books, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, even To Kill a Mockingbird qualifies).
So, I’m abandoning the idea that they don’t count. The only question now is which books to read. The only book in Entertainment Weekly‘s “final four” (see left) that I haven’t read is The Fault in Our Stars, so maybe I’ll start there.
What’s your favorite YA book?
