#VeryRealisticYA

Have you guys been checking out the amazing tweets with the #VeryRealisticYA hashtag? It's a beautiful mix of things that would make terrible books (goodbye, exciting plot; hello, actual high school experience) and things that I'd love to see in more books (not everybody is white, straight, and gorgeous? MIND BLOWN).

A few of my favorites:



I mean, the random nameless town guards have been training for years, and look what the villain did to them!




For all those books that make their teen protagonists "deep" and "interesting" by making them be into classics and snooty about modern stuff.




Oh hey, my actual life.




See above, my actual (teen) life.




Phew!




Yes please. More of this, please.




Would read.




WOULD READ SO HARD.
