Hey Ya

From great new books to favorite classic reads, from news to the latest in on-screen adaptations, the Hey YA podcast is here to elevate the exciting world of young adult lit.

#17: The YA Reading Sandwich

Eric and Kelly talk about indie bookstores that do YA lit really well, explore the growth of YA thrillers over the last few years, and finally, highlight a bunch of great books to read in honor of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month.

Sponsored by Summer Constellations by Alisha Sevigny from KCP Loft and Bookish Boyfriends: A Date With Darcy by Tiffany Schmidt from Amulet.

Hey YA is available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Play, and right here on Book Riot.
