Are Adults Ruining YA? (Spoiler: Kinda Sorta Yes *ducks and hides*)

Are Adults Ruining YA? (Spoiler: Kinda Sorta Yes *ducks and hides*)

Posted August 11, 2021 in Bookish Things // 2 Comments

Newsflash: YA books aren’t written for an adult audience. I know, shocking.  Especially because an adult is writing this..
