10 Books That Will Make You Fall In Love With YA, Because Young Adult Lit Is Something Everyone Can Adore

I think people fall in love with YA because these books portray universal emotions we’ve all felt before. Reading YA as a teen made me realize that I wasn’t alone in these feelings. Even if we can’t relate to every single situation within the pages, they have the ability to immerse us in a world of exciting firsts — of love, friendship, identity, heartbreak, and so much more.

So if you’ve never read YA, and even if you’ve read a zillion YA novels, this list of books is sure to make you fall in love with the genre over and over again.

1. JELLICOE ROAD’ BY MELINA MARCHETTA

When I first picked up Jellicoe Road, I was frustrated and lost and wondered where this story was going. But oh! It really does come together in a beautiful way. 17-year-old Taylor Markham, who was abandoned by her mother at age 11, is now the leader of her boarding school dorm. But when Hannah, her only close mother figure, disappears, and Jonah — a boy from Taylor’s past — emerges, Taylor begins to slowly put together the missing pieces of her life. Read More.

2. ‘THE TRUTH ABOUT FOREVER’ BY SARAH DESSEN

Sarah Dessen is definitely an iconic name in YA, but if you’re not sure which one of her 12 books to pick up first, The Truth About Forever is always an excellent starting point.16-year-old Macy is dealing with the death of her father by staying on top of things she can control, like her grades. But when she joins Wish Catering and discovers a more chaotic, loving group of people — including gorgeous Wes — she finds what love, friendship, and healing truly mean. Read More.

3. ‘MOSQUITOLAND’ BY DAVID ARNOLD

After moving from Cleveland to Mississippi with her father and step-mom, Mim Malone learns her real mother is sick and, because of this, steals cash to catch a Greyhound bus back to Cleveland. Through her journey she experiences unexpected twists and meets some interesting, memorable characters. The writing is stunningly poignant, and each character is so cleverly written that you’ll be wanting to reread immediately once it’s over. Read More.
