2019 YA Summer Reading Guide

It’s HERE! For all of you YA lovers, especially rom com and realistic fiction lovers, I created a “guaranteed to make you happy” reading list for the summer! (Sorry, fantasy fans, not much here for you, though) Oh, and there are graphic novels too!

NOTE: I’m a 38-year-old school librarian and I kind of made this list more for adult readers who love YA – but I have thrown almost all of these at my 13 yo and she’s loved a lot of them too! PLEASE don’t use this list as your school’s or library’s recommended reading list without vetting them first.

AND, here’s a PDF printable if you’d like one!
