https://open.spotify.com/episode/3ff04NnDbSkPukpeziZkrB?si=VfCCln67RjC4YZJS_n9r6Q Despite being in my 30s, I am a big reader of young adult fiction. As a teen and throughout college, I was hooked on young adult novels, especially when Divergent appeared on the scene, and when Twilight came out, I didn't think I could find anything better. But, of course, as we get older,… Continue reading 6 Endearing Young Adult Books I Still Enjoy
