Many people want to jump in to the world of YA lit but don't know where to start. Should I just read Harry Potter and call myself an addict? If I read Twilight am I a cop out? Should I only read the paperbacks that haven't been checked out in years?
Welcome to my new series:
So You Wanna Read YA Lit?
Now, for the people reading this who already enjoy YA lit, you might be wondering "There's rules to this?"
This is just a simple weekly blog series to introduce people to other YA titles, authors, and genres they otherwise wouldn't have thought to read. There's a world of lit beyond The Hunger Games and I aim to prove it!
Step #3 - Series
I mentioned in Week 1 that series are an awesome way to start reading YA lit. They draw readers in with their memorable settings, unique characters, and plots that go on-and-on for several novels. Cliffhangers at the end of the final chapter encourage you to read on for the next book and always leave you wanting more.
