What's Up in YA

062617 YA Superheroines, Paperbacks For Your Summer TBR, and Your Favorite 2017 YA Reads So Far

Hello again, YA readers!

This week’s edition of “What’s Up in YA?” is sponsored by Be True To Me by Adele Griffin

Don’t miss this summer’s most sizzling read. From two-time National Book Award finalist Adele Griffin comes a story of riveting romantic suspense. New York Times bestselling author Jenny Han says, “This is a glittery gem of a book. I was utterly transported to endless summer days, girls in sundresses, that rush you get the first time you fall hard in love.”  And Morgan Matson, New York Times bestselling author of The Unexpected Everything, raves, “I devoured it in one heady, swoony sitting.”

Last year, about this time, I asked for you to share your favorite read of the year so far, and I put together a massive list of reader favorites. Let’s do that again this year.

To participate, drop your favorite YA read of 2017 — books published between January 1 and June 30 of this year only — with title and author into this form. Easy peasy! Take the next week to think about it, and look for the big round-up on July 10.
