What’s happening with YA?

I haven’t finished a YA novel in over two weeks. And I’ve barely managed to read 100 pages of one since then.

But I have read two classics, two audiobooks and several trashy romance novels.

I’m not going to lie, I’m worried. I sped through those romances and my love for audiobooks never wavers, but I’m struggling to pick up the YA I’m currently reading. Even though I know it’s a quick and easy enough read for me to finish it in one more sitting, I just have no inclination to read it.

I keep choosing an audiobook over physical reading, watching YouTube or just messing around on the internet.

It’s almost like I’m in a YA-specific slump and I really don’t know what to do about it. I don’t want to pick up something I'm really excited about in case I end up DNFing it.

I guess I’ll just have to ride it out and hope for the best.



  1. I'm in a weird rom-com mood at the moment as well, so maybe there's something in the air! YA will still be there when you feel like reading it again :)

  2. I have definitely learnt to go with my mood when it comes to reading. If YA isn't doing it for you right now then take a break from it, enjoy your trashy romance books, the classics and your audiobooks and then in a few weeeks/months you'll suddenly catch the YA bug again I'm sure. Trying to force yourself to read it when you're not in the mood will just make your slump last longer!


Leave a message, I'd love to hear from you!
