Epic Reads Insiders Wish List

Who has the answers?! YOU have the answers! So far, the Epic Reads Insiders have given us so much important insight. Back in December, we were curious what readers like you were looking forward to this year. Here’s what we learned:

  • When it comes to YA book covers, you want more artwork, interesting typography, bright colors, and fewer photographs of people… does this mean less YA dresses?! Maybe 😉
  • You’re looking for more diversity and diverse authors across all YA genres. Afterall, #WeNeedDiverseBooks!
  • You’d like to see YA authors include more LGBTQ+ characters, more characters with disabilities, and characters.
