If you love reading YA fiction but want to explore more adult fiction, thanks to this weeks TTT, I have compiled a list of ten different YA novels spanning genres and an adult recommendation for each, accompanied by three reasons why for each. It works both ways – if you read more adult fiction and want to jump on the YA bandwagon, hopefully this post will give you some pointers about where to start.

  1. I didn’t like The Casual Vacancy as much as I enjoyed The Cuckoo’s Calling, but they’re both pretty interesting books–plenty of conflict, complexity, and well-written. Cuckoo’s Calling has more likable characters, though!
