Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Gift My Teen Self

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Freebie. Today I am sharing a list of books I would gift my teen self. I really wish YA had been more of a thing when I was younger. I think I would have found some true treasures that would have helped me feel seen and grow as a person. Covers linked to Goodreads.

  2. Totally agree about YA, and the ‘New Adult’ category could be counted into that too I think. It used to be just kids books and then vaguely teen, but I like the split! This is a great list – probably should gift my current self and read them, too 😅
