These are just a few but you get what I’m saying. You see this titles and your head immediately classifies them as YA (even though ACOTAR is new adult). It’s just the words and the structure.

Again, I’m not throwing shade. I just think is very interesting how the community has developed it’s own way of naming that is attractive and easy to spot.


What’d be your YA book title?

You can use the meme above or come up with one all by yourself
