I know, I know, it’s Wednesday. I was spacing out yesterday, but didn’t want to miss this topic because I liked it a lot. I started writing YA before I was reading it widely. I’d read a few YA books in high school, was obsessed with Twilight along with my friends in college, and started reading Hunger Games with my students my first year teaching. But it was starting this blog, hoping to learn more about these books and the people who wrote them, that really made me fall in love with the genre. Here are my gateway YA books. Each one will always be incredibly special to me.
