Hello and Welcome to Adventures In YA!

Thank you so much for visiting our website.

Adventures In YA is a podcast where we will be discussing our love of all things young adult literature. Our first podcast will go live July 7, 2015 and we will be uploading episodes the first and third Tuesday of each month.

We love listening to podcast about books and reading but felt there was a gap in podcast about young adult books, so we decided to fill that gap. We are adults who read YA but we hope that anyone of any age will enjoy this podcast. Our hope is that you find this show fun and informative. We also hope that by the end of each show you have a list of new book recommendations to add to your ever growing to be read list. Questions or comments? Have an idea for future shows? Please feel free to leave a comment or use the Contact Us page to send us a message. You can also email us directly at

Don’t forget you can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Once again thanks so much for stopping by and happy listening!
