5 Exciting YA Book Trends to Look for in 2016

Are you ready to discover the newest YA titles coming to a bookstore (or e-reader) near you in 2016?


Great movie depicting the tragic life of Lady Jane grey. Though historical, it is more focused on the love story aspects. A conspiracy that pushes them to the throne only to be ousted and killed in the end.Loving each other to the very end. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Cary Elwes is the lead actor! :D


The Execution of Lady Jane Grey--No doubt how the painter views Lady Jane. An innocent all in white.


"Jane" carved into the wall of a room in the Beauchamp Tower in the Tower of London. It is believed (no absolute proof available) that it was carved by Guildford Dudley, husband of Lady Jane Grey. They were both executed (along with a number of other people) for trying to put Jane on the throne. I find this quite poignant -- in prison, awaiting execution, this young man chose to commemorate his wife, not himself. Evidence of true love?


Lady Jane Grey was pronounced Queen of England on this day 9th July, 1553 in succession to Edward VI. Her reign lasted only nine days. Her successor was Mary I

Execution of Lady Jane Grey, the nine days queen- I saw this painting in London...It's spectacular...
