Most book lovers have been reading for as long as we can remember. And when we graduated from picture books and chapter books to young adult books, it was like discovering a whole new world. We’d stay up late into the night reading with the help of book lights (or even flashlights)—but today’s YA readers are lucky to have smartphones and ereaders, making late-night reading binges even easier.
Young adult literature is often considered the bridge between childrens’ books and adult books—though if you ask us, there’s definitely nothing wrong with being an adult who loves YA lit! (We even have a list of books for that.)
The world of books for teens and young adults is growing rapidly, and we're keeping up with all the latest trends.
