Ice MassacreBy Tiana Warner
What to do when teenage heartbreak and disappointing proms are semi-recent memories best forgotten, but adult books are also off the mark? Here are five mature and riveting Young Adult reads that will capture any twenty-something’s attention. And adults will like them, too.
YA fiction starring mermaids has come into its own. Tiana Warner's Mermaids of Eriana Kwai series for the moment incorporate two books, and in 2018 a third will complete the trilogy. Set on a tiny island in the Pacific, Warner's books contain classic mermaid elements with unique content that makes for utterly satisfying reading.
If you like your YA full of gory adventures and identity crises, this is the list for you. These books are best suited for older teens, college students, and adults. For reference, other authors I enjoy include Philip Pullman, J.K. Rowling, and A.S. King.
