I’ve reviewed a few Young Adult novels here on chic.toronto, and I’m constantly impressed by the intriguing stories that YA constantly provides. With the success of stories like THE HUNGER GAMES, THE 5TH WAVE, and DIVERGENT, it’s obvious that the world of Young Adult is becoming increasingly more sophisticated and covetable.
Have you ever wanted insider access to your favourite Young Adult novels? How about the untold stories behind them? I’m happy to introduce a new blog that will showcase all of that! Introducing YA Series Insider!
This recently launched blog (launched this past weekend) helps connect readers and authors together. All those questions you’ve always wanted to ask your favourite authors? Here is the place to ask them! Insider access to spinoffs, character development, and plot characteristics are all at your fingertips!
“Our goal is to entice teens to read and discover,” said YASI founder Martina Boone, who launches her YA Southern Gothic trilogy in 2014. “YASI is a community where readers can find insider secrets of teen series fiction delivered in graphical, intriguing new ways.”
The site, run by a bunch of bloggers, include YA authors who are launching major publications in 2014. The list includes: Jennifer L. Armentrout, Nina Berry, Anne Blankman, Martina Boone, Lanie/Lee Bross, Tracy Clark, Bree Despain, Claudia Gray, S. E. Green, Kimberley Griffiths Little, and Sara Raasch.
Furthermore, YASI will include monthly spotlights on creative bookstores, libraries and book review initiatives that will successfully connect the reader with their favourite new books. To aid us readers in book discoveries, YASI will also include a Library, Bookseller, and Book Reviewer of the Month feature.

Each of the 11 YASI authors will offer a favourite book or series, along with a prize worth $50 that represents an element from their own personal series.
