I missed yesterday’s challenge so I’m sharing it here. YA is obviously something I love! I read across all genres of YA. What I connect to most is the way that YA books, no matter the genre, allow me to identify with a character going through/feeling the same things I’ve went through/felt while also helping me to see the world in  a new way. I’ve learned so much about myself and other people’s experiences through reading YA books. They make me feel connected to the world in a new way… and of course the YA community does that, too!

Make sure you’re following I Read YA on twitter and instagram for videos from your favorite YA authors on what YA means to them and chances to win great prizes.
