Writers Read Young Adult (YA) Books

Awhile back I told you I was providing a list of books I suggest lovers of science fiction and fantasy (and science fantasy, and portal fantasy, and apocalyptic, and mental health, and feminism/STRONG female characters, and equality) read.

Today I’m fulfilling PART of that promise, with this list of young adult (YA) books.

*This list was created on my own time, with my own resources. Library resources (my place of work) were not used in this creation. The list here is my own property and subject to change at any time.*
