#YABkLove Day 3: Historical

#YABkLove Day 3

What Young Adult book with a Historical setting do you adore?

out of the easy

I scrolled my Goodreads and realized I am scant on these, at least ones without any magic or paranormal elements. However I did find Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys. Set in 1950’s New Orleans this book is swimming in setting. It has been ages since I read it so I am fuzzy on the details now, but I do remember the writing being incredibly strong.

I also had a good giggle that Dangerous Angels by Francesca Lia Block might even be considered historical fiction at this point. I read it in middles school (around 2002-2004) and it was already a fairly old book by then. I can’t recall the exact setting but I want to say they’re set in the 90’s which to today’s teens may as well be historical!


#YaBkLove Help Still Needed!

July is just around the corner and that means that we will be starting #YaBkLove soon! As you can see from the graphic below, we are still in need of prompts. Some excellent ones have already been suggested to get people talking, but we would love to hear some more ideas for what kind of topics you think would get people sharing their favorite Young Adult titles. Don’t be afraid to toss out something that might generate something obscure. You can reply here or on Twitter. Share these posts and, of course, join us on July 1!
