Sustainable Reading

Jump to Comments

By Da Beattie

Do you ever miss high school? If so, then young adult books are for you. Less of a genre and more of an age group, young adult books are targeted to teens and feature teens as their main characters. 

If you normally spend your spare time out and about, a task harder to justify as covid numbers rise in Ontario, reading could be the solution. If you don’t have the space or the money, the library has about 100 locations across Toronto. After months of books being pick-up only, the library has re-opened to allow shelf browsing. After returning books only through the outdoor drop box, books stay in quarantine for approximately 6-8 days before being put back on the shelf. 

From fantasy, dystopian, contemporary, and romance, here is a list of my favourite 2020 young adult reads. 

  1. Four Days of You and Me by Miranda Kennealy  
  2. The Upside of Falling by Alex Light 
  3. If We Were Us by K. L. Walter 
  4. Project Emma by Hannah Kay
  5. Just a Boy and a Girl in a Little Canoe by Sarah Mylnowski 
  6. Havenfall by Sara Holland 
  7. The Map from Here to There by Emery Lord
  8. Throw Like a Girl by Sarah Henning 
  9. Majesty by Katharine McGee 
  10. Meet Me at Midnight by Jessica Pennington
