- Oh my god, I absolutely adored A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard! The romance was beautiful, and as someone who suffers with anxiety, I can say the representation of anxiety was just brilliant! I loved learning more about selective mutism, and what it can be like to be a deaf person in a hearing world. So much diversity in this book, too! Just wonderful!
- Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom is absolutely incredible! I learnt so much, but more than that, this is just such an awesome story. Parker is such a sparky character, and she won't take any crap from people treating her differently because she's blind. She's dealing with a lot, with the death of her father, her aunt and her family moving in, but even so, this isn't as heavy as you'd think it is. Such a wonderful story!
- When It Comes to Diverse Books, Who Makes Them Diverse? - in which I ask if it's just the protagonist/narrator who makes a diverse book diverse, or do other characters count, too?
The lovely Cait of Paper Fury invited me to take part in a collaborative post with several bloggers to guess trends in YA in 2017. Do go check out her post, 2017 Young Adult Genre and Topic Predictions (Which Can't Possibly Go Wrong), and see what we all think will be popular this year!
