YA and Wine Pairings for Your Wednesday

Wondering what wines to pair with your YA? Here is a sneak peek of my wine recommendations for the books I’ve read, am reading, or will be reading this week!


 My Recommendations for What I’ve Read so Far This Week:

The Secret of a Heart Note by Stacey Lee

I recommend pairing this beautiful Galerie Sauvignon Blanc wine with Secrets of a Heart Note, because of it’s balanced “Ode to Spring” themes, which include various hints of fruit and flowers. What an aromatically perfect match! Click here to check out my full review!

The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti

I recommend pairing this Nevermore Pinot Noir with The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett, since it seems that at least one character will exist “nevermore” by the end of this book. Click here to check out my full review!

 My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Now:

Windwitch by Susan Dennard

How can you make reading Windwitch an even more enjoyable experience? By pairing it with this Compass Winds Sauvignon Blanc.  Not only because of the obvious “winds” reference, but also because you’re going to need a compass to guide you through all the regions of the Witchlands you’re going to get to visit during this amazing novel!

Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken

Try pairing this Gabbiano Chianti with Never Fade. It’s strong flavor perfectly matches Ruby’s character in this novel. She has to become her own white night if she has any hope of surviving this next chapter in the trilogy. Click here to add this book to your GoodReads TBR list!


 My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Next:

Definitions of Indefinable Things by Whitney Taylor


I recommend pairing this awesome contemporary read with this Francis Ford Coppola Chardonnay, because it has it’s light moments but also gets pretty intense. Click here to add this book to your GoodReads list.


Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

This Bartenura Moscato will pair perfectly with Bracken’s latest installment in the Passenger series. It’s sweet and refreshing flavor pairs perfectly with Etta and Nick’s relationship. Not to mention, a map might come in more than handy during your reading adventure. Click here to add this book to your GoodReads TBR pile!

Hope you’re all having as amazing of a book week as I am!

    This is a really cute post! I love the one pairings 😀 And great book choices! I’m pretty interested in starting the Truthwitch series now!

        Still, that’s fantastic! I really need to expand my pallet’s exposure to more wine. I opened three different Cabs last night and they were all completely different. It’s amazing how that works.

        I look forward to trying some of your recommended pairings!

    This is such an awesome idea!I would love a YA& wine book club. A chance to sip wine and talk books sounds like heaven. I haven’t read Wayfarer yet. But, I loved Passenger and I love Moscato so it sounds perfect. 🙂

      Oh, thank you! We do have a fantastic time together! It’s really interesting to be reading Wayfarer and Never Fade at the same time. The writing style and tone are so different, I would never have guessed they were by the same author.

    I don’t think I’ve ever said this yet, but I love your blog’s concept!! I don’t drink wine 🍷 but it’s so cute that you pair them together and you found a very creative niche. You are one smart cookie!

      • TeacherofYA says:

        Oh, yeah…I def like it!
        People who don’t care about age suitability like mine, so I think all niches have a place. It’s a great theme! If I did it, it would be YA and Monster Energy Drinks, lmao!
