The other day I randomly had the idea to create a book quiz, so I did! I decided to base the quiz on YA books because I know the genre pretty well. Each of the quotes are divided into categories, such as YA romance. Check out the quiz here! The link is where you will find the answers, but here is a list of all the quotes and their possible books.
What if everything you set yourself up to be was wrong? Frances has always been a study machine with one goal, elite university. Nothing will stand in her way; not friends, not a guilty secret – not even the person she is on the inside.

He unlocks the door to Real Frances and for the first time she experiences true friendship, unafraid to be herself. Then the podcast goes viral and the fragile trust between them is broken.

In May last year I created a list of ten Young Adult books that I wanted to read by the end of 2017. They were all books that I was really looking forward to reading at the time, and wanted to order them so I would remember the next YA book I wanted to read. I managed to read most of them and have reasons as to why I didn't read the others.
Annie on My Mind by Nancy Andrews follows Eliza, a seventeen-year-old girl. She is heavily involved in her school's activities and loves going to museums in New York. When she meets Annie, their love for each other grows and the two realise they cannot let anyone know about their romance.
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera follows Mateo and Rufus as they find out that they both only have one day left to live. After receiving a call from Death-Cast, they seek each other out through the Last Friend app and have one last day of adventure.
Young Adult is one of my favourite genres and there are so many books that sound fantastic that I haven't had a chance to read yet. I have put together a list of 10 books that are the highest on my Young Adult TBR. I did the same recently with mystery/thriller and it was such a great way of organising my TBR. I would classify all of these books as either contemporary or romance. Young Adult comes in so many genres so this list of books are relatively similar!
The Sky is Everywhere follows Lennie Walker, a seventeen-year-old girl who has recently lost her older sister Bailey. She struggles with the grief that comes with the death of a sibling. A clarinet player for school, a silent poet and lasagne maker for her local deli, Lennie fights off those around her to cope with her loss.
I'll Give You the Sun follows Noah and Jude. They are twins who have been very close to each other growing up, but when several life-changing events occur, they are driven apart and no longer as tight as they once were.
