Discussing YA Contemporary Novels & a Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino
Drink of the Week: Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino
So it has been like summer here in Seattle this week and it is 1/2 price frappuccinos from Starbucks between 3pm to 5pm until May 12th. I decided to try the new Caramel Crunch Frappuccino and it was to die for. It is definitely not good for my waistline but it is a caramel lover's dream come true. It is pretty sweet but the caramel crunch sprinkles are amazing!
Book Topic: Discussion Young Adult Contemporary Novels
One of the things that I want to do with this feature is use this opportunity to discuss different genres. This week, I wanted to talk about YA contemporary novels because it is a genre that I have recently discovered that I really enjoy reading. My favorite thing about this genre is the real subject matter that they deal with. I remember being in high school and what it was like and I love that this genre is so true to that. High school has bullies, high school has troubled teens, high school has pressure for drugs and sex. Authors of this genre take real problems faced by young adults and write incredible fictional stories on how they are overcome. Because the topics in these novels are so real, it makes it so much easier for me to get into the story and really feel for the characters. I feel like they give the readers an opportunity to really connect with the story because they are real topics that many people have faced and overcome. This is a new genre for me that I have found a passion for.
A few of my favorite YA Contemporary novels:
That is my two cents on the genre. What about you? Do you like YA contemporary novels? What are some your favorites in this genre?
