This week if you’ve been seeing our twitter and instagram you’ve noticed that we’ve been participating in I Read YA Week with Scholastic. And today we’ll start the daily challenges, and today’s challenge is to talk about what we believe #YAStandsFor means to us, and that’s what I’ll be talking about today.
I never thought I’d get sucked back into the world of reading, I absolutely hated reading through middle school and high school, but as I hit college I realized I was more lonely, and my friends went from many to few. I turned to books to fill my time and help me get away from my problems. And the first book I picked up was The Young Elites by Marie Lu. I very much enjoyed this book and with that, I began reading more and more. Eventually I met Taylor through instagram and asked her if she’d like to start a blog with me, where our first Book of the Month was by Victoria Schwab ( also known as V.E. Schwab, another YA Author)
With these few tid btis of memories, I guess I’ll dive into what #YAStandsFor to me. All in all it stands for friendship, support, diversity, escape, love and new beginnings for me. I would never have the friendship of Taylor, the support of this community, the wonderful diversity in books and characters and the escape of getting to visit a new world, story, character with every page I read.
