It’s UKYA Day today! Project UKYA – masterminded by teen book blogger Lucy Powrie – is celebrating UKYA today. Search the hashtags #UKYADay and #AprilExtravaganza and you’ll see book bloggers celebrating the fantastic Young Adult books written by authors based in the UK.
More about Project UKYA:
Project UKYA was set up in September 2013 to raise awareness of UKYA fiction and authors through monthly campaigns, called “projects.”
UKYA encompasses a range of different genres and, whilst the definition can be quite hazy, it usually means a book written by an author born or currently residing in the UK. Examples of UKYA authors include Malorie Blackman, Patrick Ness and C.J. Daugherty.

#UKYADay on Adventures With Words
We’re celebrating #UKYADay with two review posts: first this morning, A Kiss in the Dark by Cat Clarke, one of my favourite contemporary UKYA novels of the year, and then this afternoon, you can see what I thought of The Glass Republic, part two of Tom Pollock’s The Skyscraper Throne trilogy (part three is out this summer), one of my favourite UKYA SFF reads.
Let’s celebrate UKYA Day together!
