100 Must-Read YA Books With Little Or No Romance

One of the most common requests I see from YA readers is for books that contain little or no romantic elements to them. A couple of years ago, one of the biggest complaints I read across the book blogging and greater literary world was how there were “too many” books in YA with a romance at the center of the story.

Confessions of a Behind-the-Times Book Nerd

I’ve always thought of myself as a book nerd because, when I was a kid, what classified as such in my mind was someone who liked reading. And I like reading. A lot.
