A few weeks ago, I posted the A-Z of book recommendations: kids version and a lot of people liked it! I figured I’d give YA a go… (I think this might be more of a challenge!).
BEFORE I START… I would just like to say the amount of books that begin ‘The…’ made this really hard for me (so honestly… I might’ve cheated, haha).
A – And The Stars Were Burning Brightly by Danielle Jawando
B – Boy Queen by George Lester
C – Countless by Karen Gregory
D – Don’t Breathe A Word by Jordyn Taylor
E – The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven
F – First Day of My Life by Lisa Williamson
G – Goodbye Perfect by Sara Barnard (this book doesn’t get the coverage/love it deserves)
H – Hold back the Tide by Melinda Salisbury (and the rest of her books, lbr)
I – Ink by Alice Broadway
J – Jack of Hearts and Other Parts by L.C. Rosen
K – ??
L – Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan

Are any of you brave enough to take on the A-Z of recommendations?
Obviously this isn’t an exhaustive list of books I’d recommend, they’re just a range of recommendations. Ask me to do this list again and trust me 80% of it would be different haha!
If you’d like a graphic novel or picture book version, let me know… I quite enjoyed challenging myself to do this!
