On The Trouble With Reader-Shaming: A Y.A. Book List

@Mistress Sparrow Thank you! Yes, the book thief gets a huge amount of praise, and yes, it is horrible. I feel very bad about this because I agree, intellectually, with the pro-YA argument laid out here- but I haven't read a book that's come out of this recent YA explosion that's actually been as good as an "adult" novel.

(Don't worry though, His Dark Materials is still amazing.)
