    Man, there’s some snotty comments on the original post about YA. Granted, I’m not an avid YA fan, but geez, people.

    Anyway! I read “The Girls” and “The Girl on the Train” this year. Loved “The Girls,” but I was less than blown away by “The Girl on the Train.”

    And I also think it’s important to read books from POVs of all different ages, just like it’s important to read diverse books. Ageism is a definite problem in the literary world.

    The only book I read on this list is Cursed Child. All the YA series, other than HP, I haven’t started, so I gave up on (I’m looking at you, The Selection). The Girls and Me Before You were both on my TBR, but I’m still waiting for the books to come in from the library. I guess I don’t really read many hyped or newly published books!
