#1 RIP to all the YA parents out there.
(pitching story idea to a YA book agent)
Me: ok so we have our main heroine
YA book agent: kill her parents
Me: why
YA book agent: just do it

#3 *Yawns.*
I have abandoned several YA books on this vacation because once again the female lead “didn’t think she was anything special until a beautiful boy paid attention to her.”

#4 I have yet to encounter this IRL.
I’ve never met a boy who smells like pine??? Where do YA book characters find these boys??? Are they actually just trees???

#5 Must. Protect. Book.
Hi I’m a full grown adult and I’m not sure how to tell people that the reason I have a fat lip is because I was sprinting upstairs at night so the monsters wouldn’t get me and I tripped on a dog toy and opted to protect the YA fantasy book I was holding instead of my face.

#6 2013 was truly a time™.
YA books in 2013: everyone in my society is put into distinct quadrants once we reach the age of 16. ever since the unnamed disaster that caused our dystopian government to be instated, there are rules on how we act, what we wear, & where we live. but i will break these rules

#7 It’s just the law.
If someone says “why don’t you read real books instead of YA?” you are allowed to sacrifice them to the swamp witch and buy another YA book.

#8 Looking at you, Harry Potter.

#9 The fandom’s always asking the important questions.
Why does YA fantasy hate soft characters. Why’s everyone an assassin. Where are the chefs

#11 Sorry, Susan.
Why are people so judgemental about adults enjoying YA books though like sorry I don’t want to read about Susans office romance

#12 Every Yelp review ever is like this.
Reviewer, upon finishing a young adult novel about teenagers: I hated this book because everyone acted like impulsive, passionate teenagers instead of boring, logical thirty-year-olds. Everyone knows REAL teenagers are always rational. 0/5 stars.

#13 Where’s the lie, honestly?

#14 Communication is key, y’all!!

#15 “He let out a deep breath…and another…and another…”

#16 I think I speak for everyone when I say I’m tired of hearing this.
