Young Adult Fantasy books are a cleaner version of Fantasy books. They are more appropriate for young adults that are past chapter books, but not quite ready for mainstream “adult” books. Some adults even enjoy Young Adult books.

The Young Adult Fantasy books featured in this post are the winners of the Goodreads 2017 Choice Awards. Did you miss a past genre? You can find them all my blog, next Monday is the last genre to be featured.

Personally, I am not a fan of the Fantasy genre in general. I do love that they have a young adult version though. Young Adult Fantasy has all the wonder and imagination of another world just like the adult version. The only difference is that there is not the hardcore vivid violence and any romantic scenes they may have, are done tastefully.

Do you read Young Adult Fantasy, does your child?
