Love YA Lit | YA Lit isn't just for teens Blame It On The Books | Blame It On The Books YA Authors on Instagram I adore Instagram. In the couple years I've been a member, I've loved the way it's encouraged me to think about my day a little more visually, and enabled me to share those (jazzily filterized) images with friends. Best of all, it's missing all the clutter and noise of Facebook. Just like with Pinterest and Tumblr, we've gathered as many YA authors as we could find with Instagram accounts. #enjoy!
