Sometimes I just get a real craving for a certain kind of read. Last week I was after the cosy familiarity of a great classic piece of literature. This week I was craving some really good quality YA fiction. I do really enjoy YA but sometimes I feel that I’ve outgrown it a bit and I don’t pick it up as much. Having said that the YA market is booming at the moment and there are some really great reads to be had, so I still enjoying dipping into the genre as much as I can.
I recently went and bought myself a copy of The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This came out last year and was a massive hit across the different bookish communities, providing a really relevant exploration of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement. It’s had such an impact that the film adaptation is actually coming out soon so I knew I had to get to it before then.
