Hi everyone! It’s Sunday and time for a #SixforSunday post! This is a weekly meme hosted by my lovely friend Steph @ A Little But A Lot. Don’t forget to check out her blog for today’s post too!
I love this week’s prompts. As an adult reader of YA fiction I often find myself wishing I had been able to read a certain book when I was younger. Although these books often still mean a lot to me as a reader now and still have big impacts on me, I think they would have made teenage Kelly feel much more settled. There were SO any books that I could have picked for this week, but there are 6 that really jumped to mind!
Radio Silence | My Box-Shaped Heart | Editing Emma | What’s A Girl Gotta Do? | A Quiet Kind of Thunder | Wing Jones
These books already hold such a special place in my heart having read them as an adult. I think if I’d have had the chance to read these as a teen they would have really inspired me and also instilled a new kind of confidence in me that I was doing okay in the world.
What books do you wish you could have read as a teenager?
Would you pick any of the same books as me?

Amaaazing picks! I would have loved What’s a Girl Gotta Do? in my teen years.
I love your list 🙂
Wing Jones would have made it on to mine if I’d had seven books haha.

I totally wish I could have read Star-Crossed by Barbara Dee when I was in middle school. It’s about a 12-year-old girl coming to terms with her sexuality, and I know it would definitely have helped 12-year-old Ellie come to terms with hers. There’s so little LGBT+ rep for middle-grade audiences, I’m glad Star-Crossed finally came around!
Eleanor | On the Other Side of Reality
My Box-Shaped Heart was really good at looking into different people’s lives and what can be going on behind closed doors for people!
