In case you don't know, there's a new trend sweeping the booklover community: book subscription boxes. Typically delivered monthly, these subscription boxes usually include a new release and several accessories, snacks and/or clothing items that relate to it. While some are curated by the authors themselves, others, such as OwlCrate aand Litjoy Crate, are curated by booklovers like us! In this post, Teen Board Member Shannon C. tells us more about a one-time box she received from Litjoy Crate. Read on to hear all about the bookish goodies she recieved.

Getting to book signings in the suburbs of Atlanta where I live is harder than you would think. Let’s just say they typically consist of me annoying my parents to drive me one hour each way into downtown Atlanta for a one-hour signing. Occasionally my city’s independent bookstore, The Foxtale Book Shoppe, hosts events for YA authors that I must attend, and luckily, this store is only ten minutes away from me. I always make sure to take advantage of every convenient signing opportunity that I have. Naturally, I was super excited to find out that they were hosting an event for authors Mackenzi Lee and Becky Albertalli. Read on to learn all about the event.
One of our most highly-anticipated releases this summer is BECAUSE YOU LOVE TO HATE ME: 13 Tales of Villainy, a collection of short stories edited by Ameriie.

At the end of each story, 13 BookTubers break down the themes, character arcs and motifs that make each one deliciously devious. In this post, Teen Board Member Reanna H., who reviewed BECAUSE YOU LOVE TO HATE ME, shares the playlist she created of songs to accompany each story.
When Teenreads heads to conventions and book festivals, we're not only looking to see our favorite authors IRL. We're also on the hunt for advance copies of up and coming books, discounted copies of books that are in stores and, of course, book swag! Not familiar with the term? Book swag refers to any extra items you might receive with a book that helps promote the book, author or publisher. In this post, Teen Board member Wren L. tells us all about some of her favorite book swag items and why she prefers some over others.

Last year, Natalie D. Richards released ONE WAS LAST, a psychological thriller about a group of teens who get lost in the woods after a flash flood interrupts their senior field trip. Now, Richards is back and better than ever with WE ALL FALL DOWN. In her follow-up novel, teens Theo and Paige want to tell the other how they truly feel.

Here at, we have the exclusive cover reveal for WE ALL FALL DOWN, along with an introductory statement from Natalie herself. Be the first to see what Richards has ready for her readers next!
Kristen Simmons is the author of several bestselling YA books including the Article 5 series, set in a dystopian world ruled by morals rather than ethics; THE GLASS ARROW, a stand-alone high fantasy novel where women are endangered; and, most recently, METALTOWN, a steampunk novel where factories rule. One common theme throughout all of Kristen's books is a dystopian, controlling government, much like the one presented in Margaret Atwood's highly acclaimed THE HANDMAID'S TALE. In light of THE HANDMAID'S TALE's successful adaptation, we are sharing an amazing Q&A with Kristen discussing the dystopian genre and its influence on her novel, THE GLASS ARROW. 
Hi, my name is Rachel A. and I read clean fiction. Unfortunately, there are an abundance of misconceptions, misunderstandings and inaccurate stereotypes surrounding clean fiction readers.

If you're a young adult booklover, you're probably already familiar with BookCon, the event where storytelling and pop culture collide. At BookCon, readers of all ages can interact with the authors, publishers, celebrities and creators of content that influence everything we read, hear and see. With interactive panels, autographing sessions, storytelling podcasts, special screenings, literary quiz shows and so, so much more, BookCon is the ultimate place to celebrate books. This year, Teenreads was on the scene with a group of nine interns, Teen Board members and reviewers. In this post, our team shares some photos they took of the decorations, authors and books they saw at this year's BookCon.
