Jaide | 1 comments Hi everyone, I work at a small Library and read a lot of YA.
I have just taken over the book selection for the YA section of the Library and I was wondering if I could please get everyone's opinions on what you think we should buy?
We mostly just buy new releases but if there was an older book that everyone loves then I'd get that one also.
Even though I read YA I'm a little worried that I won't end up getting a wide range of books since I mostly just like fantasy.

Hi Jaide, I recently helped to create a list of YA books for my local public library. Are you still looking for some help? :)

C.J. Godwin | 5 comments If you liked HCA's 'The Little Mermaid', check out my YA series Mystic Tides it takes place in modern times, 200 years after the original tale. It is kind of a continuation but it focuses on her sisters and their descendants.

Grayson Grave | 5 comments You could always add my book - Etty Steele Vampire Hunter. It’s a children’s/teen fantasy dealing with the theme of prejudice (and kicking vampire butt). Check it out ❤️

It's historical fiction, and WOW! I've read it more times than I can even count!"
