I saw this infographic on Short Librarian’s Blog, and I also thought it was pretty amazing. I had to share. You can also find the original post at EpicReads. Each state on this map is represented by a book that takes place in that state.
This map reminds me how many deserving YA books are still out there that I have yet to read — and also how many YA novels I’ve forgotten about that merit a second look. I’ve read a chunk of these books, but this definitely adds a few to my list. I remember reading Jean Craighead George’s Julie of the Wolves years ago and becoming immersed in the Alaskan setting. More recently, Veronica Roth’s Divergent took me a to a completely different world and made it real for me. I love discovering new reads! Not only do they make us better writers, but they’re so much fun to read! Have you read the book for your state?
