Check out Barnes and Nobles Top 40 YA (Young Adult) summer list…
Summer isn’t just about Choco Tacos and weird tanlines, it’s about racing through summer releases like it’s your job, and business is good. Here are 40 June through August YA books I can’t wait to get my hands on, or have already inhaled like so many Choco Tacos. Get them out of this internet list and into your hands:
Devoted, by Jennifer Mathieu
Why we’re excited: Both protected and restricted by her family’s extreme adherence to their fundamentalist Texas church, home-schooled Rachel finds herself questioning the costs of devotion. She starts defying the rules she lives by first subtly and then outright, until she finds herself facing a terrifying crossroads between giving in entirely or finding herself in exile.
Pair with: Deep thought and sweet tea
The Witch Hunter, by Virginia Boecker
Why we’re excited: This supernatural series starter set in an alt England centers on a witch hunter named Elizabeth, who faces death from a magic-fearing inquisitor when discovered in possession of herbs. When a wizard saves her from execution and asks her to be his ally, she’s plunged into a fascinating netherworld of dark enchantments.
Pair with: A rewatch of The Craft
Proof of Forever, by Lexa Hillyer
Why we’re excited: Hillyer’s a poet and cofounder of the Paper Lantern lit fiction incubator, and this is her YA debut. Four friends who’ve drifted apart are zapped by some strange magic back in time to their last year at summer camp, and must fix (or relive) old mistakes without derailing the future.
Pair with: An evening spent lol’ing at old yearbooks”
