20 YA Books That Will Hook You in 20 pages or less

Epic Reads has come up with a list of great Young Adult books that will make you never put them down within the first twenty pages. We all love books, but don’t want to waste our time reading books that we just can’t connect with.

So here are 20 of them that will not let you put them down until you have finished them:

I have only read 1 of the books on this list. I have seen most and heard about most of them though and I have now put a few of them on my TBR pile.

Have you read any of these books?

Is there any book out there you would recommend for someone that won’t disappoint them?

17 Aussie YA Books Everyone Should Read At Least Once

Hey guys,

This article came out a few weeks ago from Buzzfeed and I wanted to share it with you all because I love sharing bookish information with you all and wanted to let you see it.

Here is a list of Aussie Young Adult books which we are all apparently meant to read at least once.

https://www.buzzfeed.com/jennaguillaume/loveozya?utm_term=.yoxLmm1yw7#.lwxqXXarNy

I am going to be completely honest with you. I haven’t read any of these young adult books that are mentioned on this list. I own a couple of them, my sister has read a few of them, but I myself have not read any of them. I know about most of them, but with such a big TBR as is, I can’t really get around to all of the Aussie Young Adult books.

Have you read any of these books? Do you own any of these books?

Let me know what you think.

I love this list, except for the fact that it has added a couple more books to my tbr pile.

Have you read any of these books? Have you heard of any of these books?

I have heard of a few of these books but I haven’t seen many of them at the shops, which I hope gets rectified, because I want to buy some of these books.

The World’s Most Improbable Libraries

You know how everyone keeps saying that books are dead, that the written word isn’t going to exist in so many years. Well I’ve got something to say to all of you naysayers – go read this and tell me if the art of writing is dying.

http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/the-world%E2%80%99s-most-improbable-libraries/6483292

If you are like me and absolute love books, libraries and all bookshops around the world even though you always go to your favourite local book shop and hate it when you hear people say that bookshops are a dying breed, well take a few moments and read this interesting article that I found published by the ABC and was written by Alex McClintock.

Look at how some of the societies around the world are keeping books and words in business. How inspiring. I wish there were some cool libraries in Australia that I could visit.

Books aren’t a dying breed.

7 Books to Read During Sexual Assult Awareness Month

I didn’t know this but April is Sexual Assault awareness month. What I did know was that there are many young adult books that have the theme of sexual assault in them. The act, the consequences and the emotions tied to it.

Penguin Teen has put a list of 7 books that they think you should read this month about Sexual Assault.

Here is that list:

http://www.penguinteen.com/8-books-to-read-during-sexual-assault-awareness-month/

I haven’t read any of these book and from looking at their covers they don’t portray the message that the book is about that theme, but I guess that might be the point.

Have you guys read any of these books or know of any other young adult books out there that focus on sexual assault?
