There’s just something about Summer. The weather’s warmer, the days are longer, and I always feel just a little more hopeful. But there’s also something about summer that brings me back to those carefree Summer days when I was younger. Maybe that’s why I’ve been so in love with young adult books this Summer. Reading young adult (even though I’m an adult-adult) brings me back to that time. Feelings were heightened, I was first starting to learn about the world and my place in it, and I was becoming the person I am today. I’ve got a roundup of the best young adult fiction of the year. No matter how old you are, it’s always a good time to read YA.
