Teen Reads Week

This week, October 8th-14th, is Teen Read Week!  Young Adult (YA) books have recently gained a lot of attention for readers of all ages.  Time magazine has called this the “golden age of young-adult literature, when books ostensibly written for teens are equally adored by readers of every generation…they’ve produced characters and conceits that have become the currency of our pop-culture discourse.”  Not so surprisingly a survey done in 2012 shows that roughly 55% of YA readers were adults and the YA market continues to grow.  This article discusses eight reasons adult should read YA books. 

Time magazine compiled the top 100 best young adult books in 2015.  While this list is pretty comprehensive, a bunch of great YA books have been written since.  Check out this list of 10 books that just came out in September or this list with the best YA books that have been published so far in 2017.
