Young Adult Books...For Adults

The lovely ladies over at Epic Reads talked in their biweekly Tea Time Chat about young adults books they'd recommend to adults. In my experience, not many adults willingly pick up young adult books, but when they're given one to read they almost always enjoy it! 

Our own list is based off of books we've seen adults pick up for themselves at The Bookcase:

Happy reading!

  1. Spot on! I especially agree with Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I love that book so much! Unfortunately, I have sequel terror, and have not read Days of Blood and Starlight. I'm still totally excited for Dreams of Gods and Monsters. What I usually do with trilogies is read the first book, and then binge-read the next two. It's a foolproof plan ;)

    Just lots of waiting.

    1. Oh, I absolutely loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone! I have not read Days of Blood and Starlight yet either. I'm going to wait until it comes out in paperback and then devour it! Love your plan--I sometimes do that as well! :)

  2. I'm trying so hard to get my mom to read Code Name Verity.....but she won't because she thinks that it is sad....(I may have cried a lot while reading that one....) But she really liked Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. And she loves Cinder by Marrissa Meyer too!!! Great list!!!

    1. I have not read this one! It's growing higher on my TBR list though. Cinder is another good one, maybe I'll try to sell that one to an adult... Thanks for the rec!


Thank you for visiting our blog and reading this review. We hope you stop by the store and check out the book!
