10 YA Books With Happy Endings

[via Mashable]

If you’re still railing against the end of the Divergent trilogy and wiping the mascara from your face after re-reading The Fault in Our Stars, you might be in the mood for a happier YA beach read this summer.

These books have their own forms of darkness, but the final chapters should leave you smiling, not sniffling.

  1.  Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenez

  2. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

  3. Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith

  4. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

  5. Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan

  6. No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale

  7. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

  8. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

  9. Panic by Lauren Oliver

  10. Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Finishing a book and smiling is at least equally as good as crying at the end, and maybe better.

Truth, Ruth.

Truth, Ruth.

Congrats to the Fred Levy and his Black Dogs Project blog. It’s an effort to correct the fact that black dogs are sadly, routinely passed over for adoption. It’s nothing but photos of black dogs against black backgrounds, it’s beautiful, and it’s about to become a book. It’ll be out in fall of 2015, and its pages will be heavy with ink.

If you yourself have a black dog, by the way, Fred still needs models… 

I loved my black greyhound so much.

Reading Is Dangerous

Illustration for the essay "Clunkers" by James McWilliams in the Sunday NY Times Book Review. Thanks to ADs Rex Bonomelli and Nicholas Blechman!

I am such a daredevil, tempting fate every day by reading.  Living on the edge…
