An Open “Letter” to My YA Self & a giveaway

Posted April 13, 2015 by Andi in General, Giveaway / 12 Comments


I’m very happy to take part in the fabulous feature thought up by Ginger at GReads Books where a bunch of awesome bloggers (and some authors) have written letters to themselves when they were young adults. I struggled with this a little as I’m not a huge letter writer. But as I thought about it I thought about who I am and what seemed more me than writing a letter.

And now the fun part, the giveaway. You can win one of these FAB books thanks to the generosity of the lovely Ginger.

  1. I would tell my YA self that there are tons of amazing books out there waiting to be read my you (me) and to quit stalling. I would also reccomend The Throne of Glass series to myself, that would’ve gotten me out of my reading slump.

  2. Love how you put this post together and hooked a book up with each statement!! 🙂 Each one is so true and something my YA self definitely needed to hear. <3

  3. I would definitely tell myself that being different is okay and being a weirdo is awesome! I think I was already pretty weird in HS and pretty in-the-know that I was a dork, but I still worried about it. I would definitely tell myself to rock it because not caring if I look silly is fun! (Also to try things that scare me. I’m still trying to do these, and I find that all my fav experiences are when I do something that scares me)
    (And I would tell myself to read SimonVs because it’s all about being different and celebrating who you are! And CAKE! My friends and I did that in HS and brought cake a lot, so that was fun!)

  4. I love how you paired the books with your advice. So clever! The advice about true friends is definitely something I wish I could give my YA self. I put a lot of time and effort into friendships that I thought were worth it. But come to find out years later, they weren’t true friends to begin with. But I guess that goes with your The Devil You Know advice.. I’ll eventually learn from those decisions 😉

    Thanks Andi for being apart of this feature! Loved having you on board, xo.
