I used to think that “young adult” books should only be enjoyed by teenagers, but I’m far from the only adult reader who still fills his shelves with YA stories. Young adult novels are usually set in high school with teenage characters, but offer serious, moving, or timely subject matter in an easily digestible form.

We’ve sorted them by their fast approaching release dates and you can pre-order every title on this list now to be delivered as soon as it’s released.
