What's Up in YA

🕶️ Your Summer YA TBR Is Toppling

Hey YA Readers: Let’s catch up on YA book chat.

“What’s Up in YA?” is sponsored by TBR: Tailored Book Recommendations.

TBR is Book Riot’s new subscription service offering Tailored Book Recommendations for readers of all stripes. Been dreaming of a “stitchfix for books?” Now it’s here! Tell TBR about your reading preferences and what you’re looking for, and sit back while your Bibliologist handpicks recommendations just for you. TBR offers plans to receive hardcover books in the mail or recommendations by email, so there’s an option for every budget. Sign up here.

We’ve done so much book talk over on Book Riot lately that it seems worth rounding it up over here for those of you who (like me!) are still catching up.

For your ears…

Don’t miss out on the latest episodes of Hey YA, either. The full show has covered YA trends, how excited Eric and I are about the Hunger Games prequel, and I got to talk with YA superstar Sarah Dessen for an hour about the growth of YA and “strong” female characters. Then, join me in the Hey YA: Extra Credit series as I talk with author Tom Ryan about Norma Klein’s Breaking Up (it holds up really well!) and as I dig into Love Is One Of The Choices (this one, not so much!).


Just for laughs…
