“What YA book should I read next?”

Sometimes, the thing that holds us back from reading is deciding exactly what the next book we should pick up is. It’s decision fatigue, and for readers who have massive TBRs, well, it’s no surprise when the process of making a decision is why we chose never to make one at all.

But let me help! Today, I present to you a fun little quiz. “What YA book should I read next,” you ask? I’ve got some suggestions for you!

Included in the potential answers are thrillers, lush fantasy novels, contemporary realistic reads, books in verse, nonfiction, and more. Queer main characters, main characters of color, and stories that may not be super brand new are all represented, and all of the possible titles are available right now so you can hit your bookstore or library as soon as you finish.

There really is something for every kind of reader.
