YA Round-up: August 2017

Another month gone, and we’re getting closer and closer to 2018 – and the potential it holds for the YA scene! It’s easy to get excited especially since we’re coming close to the holidays and the New Year (trust us, it’s only September but it’ll be all over in a flash) – but we can’t forget the present! Or, in this case, the recent past. And this past month has been filled to the brim with interesting stuff, from cover reveals to overlooked books, to the mysterious workings of a bestseller list…
