The YA Readers Alliance

Welcome to The YA (Young Adult) Readers Alliance. This group was formed by thirteen book-loving individuals on Bookstagram in January of 2017.

Each month, we will be reading a newly released Young Adult novel, and we’ll be inviting the reading community to join us in reading, reviewing and discussing our monthly read! Each month, the YA Readers Alliance will have two Monthly Reads – one “mandatory read”, and one “optional read” – that way we can keep the discussion going all month!

Want to join the discussion? You can find us on Bookstagram!

So What Are We Reading This Month?

For the month of May, the YA Readers Alliance selected The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas as our main read (which will be discussed at the end of the month!), and A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas as our optional read (which will be discussed on the 15th of the month!). Both books are popular, newly released YA novels (although this month we’ve changed it up and are not exclusively reading Fantasy!, and we’re so excited to start reading them!

ACOWAR

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit-and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well. As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords-and hunt for allies in unexpected places. In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.

The Hate U Give

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.
