Via Barnes & Noble’s book blog, 9 Signs You Might Be Living In A YA Novel.
Within the past few weeks, two hot, adoring guys have come into your life.If one is a dark-haired bad boy and the other a mischievous yet trustworthy blond, just accept that you’re living in a YA novel now, and cross your fingers it’s a series.
You or someone you know is named Cam, Cameron, or Cammie. Also watch out for names that can be shortened to Kat.
Your world’s looking a little bit…whitewashed.And if you do know someone of color, they likely have skin that one might compare to a cafe au lait, mocha, or other beverage currently sold at Starbucks. (Note: If people are looking even whiter than usual, you may be living in a YA novel about vampires. Or zombies. I’m sorry.)
I’d add: has your evil dystopian society banned something random, like love? Or having a a personality? Do you bear an ancient family curse? Do you have an adorable little sister, of whom you feel very protective?
Watch out for that third book in your trilogy, is all I’m sayin’.
