MGYA Genres Reviewed:

We love MGYA and are equal opportunists for every genre. We can’t review every book, but we love to try. Books are accepted for review based solely on openings and reviewer preferences.

All posts, and especially the reviews, are highly categorized to help you find the type of books you love to read. You can find books by author last name, review rating, MGYA sub-genre, character types, plot devices, tropes, and more.

If you can’t commit to being a regular reviewer you can still get free books without any obligations. LYAF hosts many giveaways for print and digital romance novels.

FTC Transparency:

A: If it looks like an ad or sale link, it is. Literature Young Adult Fiction runs several affiliate advertisers including but not limited to: Commission Junction, Amazon, Ebay, and ShareAShale. Under the new FTC guidelines for blogger transparency I want to make it perfectly clear that Literature Young Adult Fiction receives free Advance Review Copies and books from several authors and publishers. While we have an ARC category to easily separate and distinguish these books from regular purchases or library borrowing, please assume unless explicitly stated otherwise that every book on this blog was given to the reviewer by the publisher or author and was kept as compensation. Thank you!

The Sisters Behind the Blog:

Keira used to co-blog with her younger sister (pseudonym Captain Lyaf Yarr, originally age 11 when the blog started) and their friends to discuss books they were reading and wanted to read. We came up with the pirate theme we are Yarr’s! (Yarr = Young Adult Reader and Reviewer.) Since the Captain grew up and started high school she hasn’t really blogged all that much, it’s now mainly First Mate Keira steering the pirate ship on the literary seas.

Captain Yarr’s profile:

Which do you like more: finishing a book or starting a new one?

I like finishing a book best because I like to know the ending and I feel very accomplished when I do.

Which reading format do you like best: print, audio, digital?

It depends what kind of book it is. For example I enjoy listening to Meg Cabot and J.K Rowling on audio because I love the narrators’ characters voices and acting.

How big is your TBR (to be read) pile and how many books do you read in a month?

I usually have between 2-10 books in my pile and I think I read between 2 and 5 books a month.

For fun share two truths and one false fact about yourself.

  1. My favorite color is red, which makes me very good at finding the X on a treasure map.
  2. I like to travel and have been to South America and crossed the entire length of the Panama Canal.
  3. I have walked the plank and got my vengeance when I incited a mutiny. That’s how I became Captain Yarr.

First Mate Keira’s profile:

Which do you like more: finishing a book or starting a new one?

Starting. It’s an adventure. Finishing means it’s over!!! :(

Which reading format do you like best: print, audio, digital?

Audio is preferred right now, but I do love the other types too.

How big is your TBR (to be read) pile and how many books do you read in a month?

Huge. I’ve shed 2,000 physical books by donating them to the library. Friends’ mothers knew I read and would give me their collections. I ran out of room. My digital library is equally big.

For fun share two truths and one false fact about yourself.

  1. I have many book boyfriends.
  2. I love traveling by boat over rivers, seas, and oceans.
  3. I hate asparagus.
