13 YA Books That are MUST-READS for All 13 Reasons Why Series Lovers

By  | 


Recently, Netflix released a new original series called 13 Reasons Why. It follows Clay Jensen as he tries to learn why his crush, Hannah Baker, killed herself. But before she… went, Hannah left behind 13 tapes, each containing a name and a reason why. Each person who is mentioned has to listen to all of the tapes, then pass them on to the next. Throughout the whole story, Clay is confused as to why he is on the tapes, because he loved her and he swore he would never hurt her. Then he comes to his tape. *dun dun dun*

But in case you didn’t know, before 13 Reasons Why became a hit Netflix series, it was a book (with 13 written out, Th1rteen R3asons Why), penned by Jay Asher, that was #1 on the New York Times Best-Seller list. That’s right! Your new favorite Netflix show was someone’s fave novel! If you’re looking for something to read while waiting to find out if the series is renewed for Season 2, then we’ve got you covered. Authors like Jennifer Niven and Nina Lacour can definitely satisfy for your thirst for more:
